This is a perfect get off me gun.
Kelly A B on 03/27/2022

I am impressed with the "lower than expected" recoil of this revolver, loving the feel of this revolver the more I handle it. It is a very well built and will probably be my go to for conceal carry. Can not wait to target practice some more, nice groups at 20 feet, only shot 20 rounds so far the day I received it from my local FFL. This is my 2nd purchase from Buds. Buds has been my go to online shop for firearms not on hand at the local shops. Thanks for the smooth transaction.

Awesome gun. though cylinder corrosion can be an issue on this carbon steel cylinder. Would be perfect if the cylinder was stainless steel like the barrel.

Excellent gun! I’m a big fan of J frames and replaced my 642 Pro with this. Aside from the stainless vs carbon steel used on the different cylinders and the black finish on the 442, this and the 642 are identical revolvers. However, with some altamont boot grips this is a much better looking revolver than the 642, but that just my preference. Additionally, while the frame lock that comes on most S&W production revolvers isn’t a deal breaker for me, I do prefer one without, so the lack of a lock is a nice bonus for this gun. This revolver is also cut for moon clips. I don’t carry reloads in a moon clip, but it’s a nice feature to use for unloading and keeping your carry ammo together for cleaning or a trip to the range.

I have shot this gun twice and once you get in the groove you're in the 10 ring(, close up that is.) Moonclips are complicated and the blue steel moonclips that hold Federal, Remington and Starline brass are my favorite. The Length is an issue, the Remington 158 Gr LRN rounds you have to wrestle into the chambers. So I am in search of the perfect ammo. I like this Revolver as hot weather carry. Buy this gun from Bud'd.

Very nice, easy delivery, great price. Gun shoots great, boot grips nicer than expected. Action okay out of box I guess, polished internals and added Wolff reduced power hammer spring - now great. Front blade needs white paint or something. Good accuracy, 9 and 10 rings all day out to 10 yds so far shooting Winchester wad cutters, longer range soon to follow. I like the finish, contrasts nicely with the cylinder. Great weight for carry. It's a Smith J Frame, what can you really say? Recommend.

I like this little handgun. It does exactly what I wanted it to do. It is light, snag free, easy to conceal. Remember, shooting a featherweight, short-barrel revolver requires a significant about of practice to attain proficiency. Buy this firearm if you are willing to invest in ammunition and range time. I also suggest a trigger job by a competent, licensed, gunsmith. Properly stoning the appropriate hammer and trigger services will improve accuracy. The gun is well made and absolutely reliable: pull the trigger, it goes "bang", period. Bonus: with the 442, you don't have to practice the semi-auto jam / stovepipe / failure to eject / failure to feed drills; you don't need to remember to release the safety when you are under the extreme stress of an "encounter", and you can feed it any ammo you want from low-power wadcutters, to Plus-P personal defense rounds. (I would give it a 5 star rating if S&W would polish those hammer/trigger surfaces before it leaves the factory.)

Perfect BUG (back -up-gun)! If your gun must absolutely, positively fire and continue to do so until empty, then this gun is for you. 97.99% reliable, (Failure to Feed, Failure to Fire and Failure to Eject does not apply here). You can even fire this gun while still inside your jacket pocket, no external hammer. Yes, it does shoot double action only. This gun is made for close quarter self defense, shooting within 5 feet. As such, you will not have time to cock the hammer before shooting anyway. Yes, the trigger can initially be a little hard to pull. Solution...... pull the trigger 50 times with each hand every day for 10 days, you should be doing that anyway. After 1000 dry fires, the trigger should feel fine. This is the "Pro" model, it has a stainless steel cylinder and it is cut for moon clips. If moon clips are not for you, dont use them. Moon clips are not required.

Great purchase, this is my go to off duty carry. Fits in pocket without a bulge.

This is my second purchase from Bud’s. The transaction, as always, was flawless. I can definitely state that I will purchase from them again, and again, and again. Regarding the S&W-442, awesome little revolver. Small enough in size to conceal it just about anywhere on your body; I am doing ankle-carry. This revolver is so light that I honestly forget I am carrying it at all. Keep in mind that this is a CQB firearm, it is not made to shoot the bad guy who is a block away. This revolver is for that close quarters shootout in defense of your family, your property, and/or yourself. By the way, this is my second S&W, my other pistol is an M&P 9c that I purchased through Bud’s as well.

    Ortis, no Sir. The Pro Series completes the line between main production and the Performance Center Series of Pistols (In between). Smith & Wesson Pro Series represents the next step from standard models. These firearms are offered with a variety of enhancements yet still remain true to "stock." Bringing competition specifications and features to factory models, the Pro Series offer that ready-to-go package while still maintaining production line integrity.

    The cylinder for this particular model is cut for moon clips for speed of load/unload but the pistol will fire with out them. (The newest 442 is equipped with a cylinder designed to use moon clips for increased speed and efficiency in loading. The use of moon clips requires additional machining on the face of the cylinder to accommodate the width of the metal clips. While this is an attractive feature for those shooters who prefer moon clips, the modifications do not affect the ability to load the revolver in more traditional ways—like using dump pouches, speed strips, single round load, or speed loaders).
