Smith & Wesson's 642 LadySmith revolver is designed for women to use as a self defense weapon. The model 642 features an excellent blend of weight, shape, size, power, and ease of use. This model features an attractive wooden grip and is a half ounce lighter than the standard 642. At just 14.5 oz this is a very light compact revolver chambered in 38 special capable of firing +P loads to ensure great knock down power to eliminate threats.

With a small internal hammer, double action only (DAO) design, this revolver's hammerless contour is designed to prevent snagging on clothing. A huge advantage of revolvers is their simplicity relative to autos as well as compact shape making them easy to carry on an ankle, hip, purse, or pocket. If you can pull the trigger, you can make it work. The trigger, cylinder latch, and ejector rod are the only three mechanical devices on this revolver that require manual operation making it easy to learn how to operate.

Since it's founding in 1852, Smith & Wesson have been leaders in innovative firearm technology and continue to this day. Horace Smith and Daniel Wesson's early partnership supplied the U.S. calvary with their early Model 3 American revolver and to this day are a leading supplier for the United States military with a reputation for quality and performance.

Customer Reviews

Great Gun for Wife - Review by Ropestretcher
The little pistol is a perfect home defense weapon for a small handed woman.
the .38 Spcl +P has enough knock down power for close quarter combat so the "victim" can "kick butt" and get away. (Posted on 10/14/14)
