This model 642 does not have the internal lock common to most production Smith and Wesson revolvers.

The American made Smith & Wesson 642 Airweight revolver has been a huge success since its introduction winning over fans for its value as an ideal self defense weapon. The model 642 features an excellent blend of weight, shape, size, power, and ease of use. At just 15 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. Featuring a fairly heavy double action trigger pull, accidental discharges are unlikely to occur making this a relatively safe weapon.

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.

Best Small Ladies Personal Protection Handgun - Review by oceanseeker
I am a small lady and have owned many handguns. But the SW airweight is by far my favorite gun to use. It's small, light weight, very loud. When I carry this gun i feel Protected. There is nothing to pull, cock just point and pull the trigger and it shoots. Best Gun Ever for small women!!! (Posted on 11/27/14)
