Here is the best looking variant of Smith & Wesson’s .38 Centennial Airweight introduced in the Company’s Centennial Year of 1952, a popular product descended from the experimental Air Crewman all-aluminum revolver of the early 1950s. This is the Ladysmith Variant, numbered model 642-2 LS. Manufacturer is Smith & Wesson of Springfield, MA. Factory sku is 163808A, so marked with the letter A on the under side of the frame top strap. Barrel, cylinder and parts are all stainless steel, integrated into a lightweight aluminum alloy frame, hence the 15 ounce light weight empty, down from 20-21 ounces for the steel J frame Smith & Wessons. Center of gravity is at the trigger. The Centennial was introduced as a pocket revolver. Since its hammer is completely encased in the frame, there is no possibility of clothing snagging from a hammer spur. Action, then, is double action only; there is no way for the hammer to stand in single action. A distinct advantage to the Centennial is that an alarmed, armed homeowner will not be able to cock the revolver into single action when he or she hears a noise; but a steady deliberate pull of the trigger will fire the revolver with more certainty than any automatic ever produced. The .312 smooth faced combat trigger pulls a 10 pound vicinity double action with 7/8 inch trigger travel. Smith & Wesson revolvers all have an internal transfer bar safety to guard against accidental discharge, and this 642-2 variant has the internal hammer lock, supplied with two keys, that puts it in compliance with all state laws, at least for the time being. The high gloss combat finger grooved Rosewood laminate boot grips allow a firm hold as possible with no increase of the overall height or size of the small J frame. Chambering is .38 Smith & Wesson Special caliber; cylinder holds 5 rounds of .38 Special and .38 Special +P interchangeably. Finish is matte stainless barrel, cylinder, rod and screws, with matching satin finish nickel coating to the alloy frame.
