From its civilian owner in Northwest Illinois comes this worthy specimen of the Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum Centennial Stainless, Numbered Model 640, First Engineering Change. The 640-1 made its debut at the 1996 SHOT Show in Dallas, a beefed up Magnum frame capable of handling full house .357 Magnum ammunition. Actual production on this specimen, given its BUA serial number prefix, was probably 1995, since Smith & Wesson began 1996 with C Prefix Serial numbers. It is definitely a First Year Production piece. Factory sku on this variant is 103690. The 640 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 640-1, since the Centennial cannot be fired in single action mode, where a person cocks the hammer and then pulls the trigger. Trigger is .312 case colored milled steel, not MIM, smooth face combat type. Grips are period correct Sile hard rubber combat type. This 640-1 revolver weighs 23.5 ounces empty. Maximum overall length is 6 9/16 inches. Barrel is 2 1/8 inch Full Lug One Piece, with pinned in serrated black blade front sight that mates with the fixed notch, frame-integral rear sight. Capacity is 5 rounds of .38 Special and .357 Magnum Ammunition interchangeably. Surface detractions on this piece are minimal, only faint buffing here and there. We rate it as Excellent, 90 to 95 percent vicinity by our estimate, but photos ought to suffice for our shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves. Bore, chamber, and mechanism are all clean and bright. Double action trigger pull is smooth and consistent, and the trigger travels an additional 10 to 15 degrees from pivot on all 5 positions after the cylinder times. Lateral play to the cylinder is negligible with the trigger relaxed, and with the trigger fully depressed there is no lateral movement whatsoever. Cylinder face to forcing cone gap measures .009 from the right side. Blast effect to the under side of the frame top strap directly above the barrel’s forcing cone is negligible, only a faint streak with no depth and certainly no cutting.
