    Anyhooo....S&W please make this


    Basically a lock free 642 with the Barrel and sights from the 640 Pro.

    Basically it would look like this, but be an aluminum .38.

    Please make this, it would be the ultimate pocket blaster!
    Those sights on a 3" K frame, bobbed hammer, no compensator, no lock. Aluminum .38spl and a steel magnum.

    Not dovetailed, but here’s my 442 PC with fixed sights from Bowen Classic Arms. They shoot POA/POI out to 15 yds (the farthest I’ve tested thus far) with Speer 135 gr Gold Dot SB. The stocks are birdseye maple extended boot grips by Craig Spegel.

    Greg,

    Did your 640 Pro go by the wayside?

    I get where your coming from though, hell, I would be happy even if S&W would do a airweight with a pinned front sight or hi-viz option.

    I like the J-frame but my dream EDC revolver is a Smith 242, except in 9mm. Perfect all-around size with 7 x 9mm.

    This is what they are putting out for shot. Definitely a good setup with the laser from the factory, and no Hillary hole.

    I have one of those Talo/Wiley Clapp SP101's. Tis' a very handy piece.

    I have also found it to be a good way to introduce shooters to the snubbie, without building a flinch. Load it up with some quality wadcutters, and it's an excellent trainer.

    Always found the J frames to be "experts" guns, requiring some dedication to master the (comparatively) crappy double action triggers.
    Hearing the gunshop ninja's recommend one as "the perfect wife's first weapon" chapped my ass; an absolute certain way to kill (a woman's) enthusiasm for shooting IME.

    I have been partial to the 2" K frames. Not much can equal a well broken in, or tuned, double action trigger on a K frame.

    I bobbed hammer, disabled single action, ground/polished serrations from trigger face and did a double action tune on this old 10-5.
    It gets carried frequently, especially in a Winter coat pocket.
