This is the faintly modified descendant of the 1959 Smith & Wesson Bodyguard, the model 649-5, current production 5-shot stainless .357 Magnum 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 compact revolver that a person could still fire in single action mode, like the 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 stainless .357 variant of the Bodyguard, the 649, was 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 .357 Magnum 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 2 1/8 inches, and this 5 shot pocket revolver only weighs 23 ounces empty. Grips are Smith & Wesson's Uncle Mike's Combat Grips, softer rubber panels with finger grooves that give a surer grip for full house Magnum Loads Smith & Wesson Product Code is 163210. These revolvers have always been fairly scarce. This is a local civilian-owned revolver manufactured on May 10, 2002, from its CFE serial number prefix, among the first issued 649-5 with internal lock. It is in its original, smaller blue box with its manual, warranty card, laser engraving brochure, and both keys for its internal lock. Its only surface detractions are very faint cylinder rotation marking, really no more than any of its brand new mates we have in stock. From our knowledge of its exclusive retail owner and from its condition, it has been fired no more than 20 times. Blast effect to the underside of the frame top strap is negligible. Carbon residue on the cylinder face is minimal. We classify this revolver as Near Mint in Box, but photos should suffice for prospective owners to judge finish grade for themselves. Replacement price on these in our area, if a person can find one, is upwards of $800.00.

Don't try, either, to circumvent any law; for example, a California civilian may not buy a high capacity magazine and have it shipped to his brother-in-law in Nevada. That is a felony.
