S&W 642-2 Centennial SS .38 +P Near Mint in Box  Guns > Pistols > Smith & Wesson Revolvers > Full Frame Revolver
Description: Here is a 642-2 Smith & Wesson Airweight Centennial, full time double action 5-shot Revolver, that has spent its entire life in Smith & Wesson corporate custody until late this summer. It has only been test fired by Smith & Wesson personnel, but only a few times more than the normal 3 rounds at the factory. Serial number prefix is DBD; and its fired brass is dated August 27, 2007. Its only surface detraction is moderate cylinder rotation marking. Carbon blacking is minimal to negligible, no worse than normal NIB revolvers. This is the 642-2, current production 5-shot lightweight stainless .38 Special with the classic 2 inch barrel. Like almost all its siblings, it has the internal hammer lock, and comes with 2 keys, along with another cable padlock. The 642 is full-time double action; since the hammer is completely enclosed inside the frame. For personal protection, many veteran law enforcement officers and firearms instructors recommend this model 642-2, since the Centennial cannot be fired in single action mode, where a person cocks the hammer and then pulls the trigger. It is an exceedingly dangerous situation when a homeowner hears a noise and immediately backs the hammer on any revolver. This configuration has long been very popular and, in our opinion, vastly less dangerous than many of its semi-automatic peers. In spite of its light weight, it is rated to withstand the pressure from +P, high-velocity proof-load .38 Special ammunition. Furthermore, given the state of the handgun market and consequent prices, we believe the Lightweight J-frame Smith & Wessons are among the best values in firearms. As far as Factory Specs, this revolver is .38 Special +P rated, double action only, 1 7/8 inch barrel, overall length 6 5/16 inches; aluminum alloy small frame J designation; satin stainless finish, Uncle Mike’s Boot Grip; serrated ramp front sight with fixed notch rear sight; internal hammer with locking mechanism; .312 width smooth Metal Injected Molded trigger; 5 shot capacity.
