    New to me S&W 640 and theres a twist..

    The twist being that its been worked over by Gemini customs you may not see it in the photos,but it has their logo on the side plate. All I can say is about the double action trigger is WOW! just awesome its breaks like its made out of glass. I can't pick it up for a few weeks but I put her on layaway,I got it for $450 OTD.

    Also would you go LG-305 or 405's on this gun? I have the 405's on my 340PD and love them but its a pocket gun,where the 640 will be a belt gun carried IWB/OWB. So which laser grips for a belt carried steel J-frame? I know the pics aren't the best but I took them with my Blackberry at the gun shop. Last thing is if I call mark at Gemini customs with the serial number will he be able to tell mt what work exactly was done to my gun?

    I really wasn't planning on buying anymore guns but at the price this thing was going for and what it is,a S&W 640-3 customized by Gemini customs how could I NOT buy it? It will make an excellent stable mate/cross training/carry gun to my S&W 340PD. So guys did I do good on this thing or what?

    I may bein the minority but I think laser sights on a snubby is just wasted money....I dont see the need...if you cannot hit it in 6 feet, well then, you shouldnt have one to begin with! Seriously, save your money and spend it on another gun or more ammo!

    Ever shot a snubby with laser grips? I bet not. It's many times easier to hit accurately at speed with the laser. It also allows you to focus on the threat, not the front sight. You'll notice that most of the armed forces are using red dot optics on their M4s, with back up iron sights. What are laser grips on a snubby, but red dot sights with backup irons?

    LG-105's on a pocket gun. Mine are perfect.

    My J-frame is an off-duty piece when nothing else fits but an every shift on-duty BUG. The laser grips assure that regardless of the position I may be in, as long as I can see and pull the trigger I can put rounds on target. That ability makes my grips worth far more than the $165 I paid for them, in fact, they are priceless.

    Thanks for the replies guys this will be a gun thats is carried IWB or OWB so would the LG-305's work? How do the 105's compare to the 405's I have now on my 340PD? I find the air pocket on the back of them an asset due to the 340PD's light weight and stiff recoil,but are the 405's needed on a steel J frame or would the 105's work?

    I'm not recoil shy, I like the 105's and don't feel the need for extra padding. To me they feel the same as shooting with wooden grips of similar size/shape.

    Nice! I really like my 640 that I’ve been working on with Hamilton Bowen. There seems to be no end to the refinements that one may apply to this little workhorse of a j-frame. As for the laser grips you’re considering, I would go with the LG-305. These allow for a more secure and balanced hold, especially if you’re considering warmer loads. For what its worth, if you want the S&W logo vs. CTC, you can order those direct from Smith'. Either way, it appears that you landed quite the deal so don't ever sell it.

    Sidebar: I just received my Milt Sparks PMK holster cut for a 1-1/4" belt, and it hugs very nicely and surprisingly close to the waist. Moreover, are the exceptionally tight loops that fit very well with a conventional dress belt. Threading the belt loops between the 2:30 loop position on your pants is ideal. Over time, the loops will soften but don't rush it by starting out with an iron clad gun belt.
