This is the faintly modified descendant of the 1955 Smith & Wesson Airweight Bodyguard, the model 638-3, current production 5-shot lightweight stainless .38 Special with the classic 2 inch barrel. With considerable demand for pocket revolvers in the 1950s, Smith & Wesson introduced its Centennial Model in 1952, but there was still demand for a pocket lightweight .38 that a person could still fire in single action mode, like the Airweight Chief's Special, only without the hammer spur snagging a person's pocket or purse upon drawing the weapon. The upper part of the frame, as the photos show, shields the hammer; but still exposes its cleat-serrated hammer spur enough to produce a cocking motion for precise single action firing. The lightweight stainless variant of the Airweight Bodyguard, the 638, was introduced as a limited run in 1989, then added as a regular part of the Smith & Wesson line in 1996, when Smith & Wesson beefed up the J-frame sufficiently for it to handle High Performance +P ammunition. This third, current variant of the 638 has a .312 MIM Metal-injected-Molded .312 smooth combat trigger and MIM flat-faced hammer with floating firing pin. All S&W Revolvers have an internal transfer bar safety that prevents accidental firing if a loaded weapon is dropped, and in 2002, the 638-3 entered the market with Smith & Wesson's patented internal lock. Barrel length is 1 7/8 inches, and this 5 shot pocket revolver only weighs 14 5/8 ounces empty. Grips are Smith & Wesson's new boot grip, softer rubber panels that give a surer grip without increasing the dimensions of the revolver. Smith & Wesson Product Code is 163070. These revolvers have always been fairly scarce, hardly ever more so than nowadays. Replacement price on them in our area, if a person can find one, is upwards of $600.00. We're offering the .38 Bodyguard Airweight Stainless model 638-3, the one in the photo or one of its identical mates, however for only $ 389.00 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> $12 lower 48; $40 Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, USPS Priority Mail, insured with Delivery Confirmation.
