The small Smith & Wesson 5-shot J-Frame double action only (DAO) 38 S&W SPECIAL +P revolvers debuted with 1950’s Model 40 that evolved into the Model 42 Centennial Airweight. The 642 is one of its Airweight descendants: it combines classic retro looks with modern manufacturing, lightweight materials and a stainless-steel/silver look. A great thing about the 642 is its Crimson Trace Lasergrips option.

All 642s share a frame that includes an integrated front ramp sight and a fixed rear one. The barrel is just 1.875” long while overall length is 6.3”.

But after that, you have several choices. With no laser and no internal lock, weight is 14.6 ounces. Adding an internal lock shifts weight up to 14.7 ounces. You can get this version with either the normal black grips or pink ones or even great looking wooden ones. Combine a Crimson Trace Laser without the internal lock, and weight is 15.4 ounces. The same with an internal lock, weigh creeps to 15.5 ounces.

Model 642s come in stainless-steel with black polymer grips. Like its predecessors, it’s double action only (DAO). While this snag-free highly portable self-defense design is wonderfully cohesive and compact for conceal carry, it’s made of several different materials. The frame is lightweight aluminum alloy that’s given a matte silver finish. Both the barrel and fluted 5-round cylinder are stainless-steel. The internal hammer is also stainless-steel.

You can get 642s with a black polymer grip or a pink polymer grip. The grips are oval textured and have two very nice frontstrap finger recesses. The model with the pink grip comes standard with the black grip too!

The conceal carry Smith & Wesson 642 5-shot J-frame DAO revolvers are made in Springfield, Massachusetts and thus Made in USA.
