While looking for a new front sight for my LCR I came across this little gem.
That's right, it's a -1, 442. -1 as in no lock, woohoo! It was NIB and priced right so I grabbed it up along with my HI-Viz sight for my LCR. Got it home and slapped my classic grips on her and now she's perfect!
Here's the LCR by itself sporting the new sight.
Here's the pair together. All in all, it was a good day.
VERY nice find indeed! I tip my hat to you on a fine purchase.

A while back I contemplated between the LCR and 442. The price difference was small, but the 442 felt better in my hand. The decision is on hold until I get a chance to shoot both. Looks like you solved that dilemma.

I like the look of the Model 442 over the Model 642. That one looks real fine.

While I appreciate the practicality of polymer guns (all my carry guns are such), I still love a nice piece of wood for aesthetics. She's a beaut!

Congrats on the new gun.

Sweet, I may not carry my 442 all the time but, it is my favorite 38 Snub. It is also one of my back up guns that get rotated into my daily Two Gun Carry.
Nice, one for each pocket.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
