Initially is was wondering about the quality of the alloy frame.......my concerns were set aside when I took the gun to the range......The smith and wesson quality is present in this less expensive revolver.....fit and finish are very nice and the action of the revolver was smooth right from the factory....after shooting it a few times I removed the side plate and did some minor polishing on parts, I also installed some crimson trace grips. The 638 is great gun for its size and weight. Taking time to be proficient with it is the fun part.

Bud's came through again! This is my 2nd gun purchase thru Bud's and everything with the ordering process went fine. I had been considering either the 638 or the Ruger LCRX for awhile and finally decided on the 638. The good price helped me to decide. I have had it to the range once so far. I am used to heavier guns so have to adjust for the recoil and the heavier trigger pull. It will take some time to adjust to it, but I look forward to shooting it more.

This is a great little revolver I love it. The lightweight aluminum frame makes it very comfortable to carry. In single I hit 5 cans in 5 shots at 20 yards the double action is a little heavier than my s&w66 but it’s sill smooth I missed a lot more shooting double as expected but was still hitting cans at 20 yards. This is a great gun I’d have no problem with carrying. Buds was excellent as usual fast shipping good communication during the process I’d absolutely recommended this if you are at all interested

First, let me say the price was great as was Bud's service. Now the gun. I have read a lot about S&W quality deteriorating. Well...this gun is perfect. As in flawless. It really is. Nothing is off, it is tight, it has no blemishes. It is great with standard pressure .38-and o.k. with +p. Everything is all good and It is now my EDC. Sometimes with a second J-frame. Snubby revolvers are greatly underestimated as civilian carry guns.But they are the best thing to cope with what civilians encounter. Remember the "rule of threes"; under 3 yards, under 3 seconds, 3 rounds or less. That describes almost anything you may find yourself in. And remember the snubby is the hardest gun to take from you. buy it, carry it....

It was an awesome experience buy from buds. I saved about $100 buying from them and they delivered on time. Everything was as smooth as silk. It was so easy my wife is now worried about our bank account!! Lol.....

Awesome little revolver. Good fit and finish. Sometimes the grip stops a shell from ejecting completely so practice opening it all the way before hitting the ejection rod. Shoots straight. Use a lighter bullet under 145 grains.

I recieved this S&W 38 special in a few days and it was in new condition and I am very pleased with it. I have done business with Bud's Gun Shop for a while now and they have great selection of guns at really good prices. I would recommend Bud's to anyone looking for a good deal and good service. Look forward to doing business with them again.

Bud\'s service and speed of delivery was as always exceptional. Great people to do business with. The 638 S & W has a terrible trigger, heavy and gritty. Previous S & W\'s and Taurus\' revolvers I have owned are much better. 125 grain, 185 grain and 160 grain all shoot 8\" high at 15 yards. I bought this primarily to shoot shot snake loads and may keep the gun for that purpose. As a defensive gun, I feel it is useless.

This is the ultimate ankle BUG. I have three of them, stuffed with Federal HST. Need I say more?

Great little snub revolver. I bought it for close (7yds. Or less) Back gun. This is a defense gun. I bought a Wilson spring kit for it, but not installed it yet, as it shot very good as it came.
I like and will keep it. Greatly prefer the ability to shoot it double or single action. I had a m- 642 D/A only. Never again.

    If I recall correctly Tim, that is an allen screw, that takes an allen, or hex, wrench. If you look closely it would resemble a ';honeycomb' shape inside the screw hole. Just make sure you have the correct size that fits snugly into the head of the screw to avoid stripping out the shoulders on the inside of the screw head. Wallie World has some Stanley Allen wrench sets that I have bought to carry in my range bag - they're inexpensive and of fairly good quality, fold up compactly and are 'attached' to the handle so they're easy to keep up with - fold up and close sort f like a picket knife. I think that would solve your situation. . If the screw is not a hex/allen head screw then it would be a torx type - resembles a star inside the screw head. Photo of the two different types here - hex/allen screw on top. Again, Wally World has torx wrench sets as well Photo here: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/65/Torx-hex-contact-angles-forces.svg/220px-Torx-hex-contact-angles-forces.svg.png
