    S&W Performance Center & Hand getting rubbed raw?

    I am thinking about sending off my S&W 642 to the Smith and Wesson Performance Center Gunsmith to get their Master Revolver Action Job. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this done to their revolver or had any experience with the S&W gunsmiths. Also what do you guys think about what they would do?


    Master Revolver Action Job:
    * Trigger Stop
    * Chamfer Charge Holes
    * Polish Rebound Spring, Hammer Stud Boss and Yoke Barrel Bosses
    * Detail Lockwork Surfaces
    * Stone Hammer and Trigger Contact Areas
    * test Fire for Function

    Also, does anyone else have this problem?:

    The inside of my thumb gets rubbed raw after about 30 shots or so. The biggest problem is right where the rubber grip rounds the corner of the frame. I was thinking that maybe putting some wood grips on it might help as they wont be as sticky and grab on to my skin like the rubber ones do. This has happened both time I've shot my new 642, and of course this last time it didn't take much since it wasn't completely healed up from the first time it happened. I had a band-aid on when I went to the range but it didn't even stay on long enough to get in there and shoot. Maybe I should keep a few in my bag? Anyone else have anything like this happen to them?

    I cant say about sending one to the performance center but i will say i have a few performance center wheelies and there is a world of difference ..

    The trigger jobs on my PC guns is truly excellent going from my 627 to a 686 or so 357 mag it feels like going from butter to sandy grit

    Cost of Master Revolver Action Job

    The website indicates it's $125 bucks for the Master Revolver Action Job, but you can select the Express Package for $148. It's not completely clear if that's an additional $148, or if it's an additional $23 for a grand total of $148.

    Express Package - Benefits

    Fast 5-Day turnaround on select Gunsmithing Packages
    Priority Pick-up and Delivery Service
    Round-trip Freight and Handling Prepaid and Billed at Corporate Rate

    I had the Performance Center do an "Action Job" on my Thunder Ranch Revolver.

    Let me tell you, it's the second best trigger I've squeezed. The absolute best was an Andy Cannon 686 that I used to own. Like a fool I traded it away.

    The Performance Center does good work and make a Smith wheelie feel like it should feel.

    As far as your discomfort when shooting the J-Frame, I would either shoot with gloves on or get different grips. Me personally, If I were you I would get a set of Crimson Trace LG405 grips. IMO, I was waiting till Crimson fix the old style J-Frame laser grips and the did when they came out with the LG405(the laser grips finally has a recoil buffer pad and a switch with the grip being standard length so it's more concealable like it's suppose to)!
    I have them on my S&W 640(I'll end up adding the LG405's to all my other J-Frame in the future)!!!!!

    That's a thought. That's why I started bleeding after a few shots this last time. It still hadn't healed from the time before that! I guess I'll just throw a band-aid on there real quick when I go till my hand gets tough.

    As a personal preference, I would not have a trigger stop on a "carry" revolver; I see it primarily as a target-shooting accessory...OMO, YMMV.

    As for the rubbing, I cannot advise, other than to have the cylinder latch radiused/"melted"--sorry.

    Good luck with whatever you decide!

    Could not agree more. I have them on my 642 and the 405 grips make a world of difference. Now I am not saying that there is no recoil, but it is much more comfortable to shoot with the Crimson Trace grips. And,yes, they do make the gun more concealable, particularly for pocket carry.

    It would be nice to have some CT grips on my 642 and after reading up some more on them and watching a few video clips on youtube I think I will have to save up for some. Maybe in a few months I will have enough. :) Hopefully that will help with my hand getting rubbed, and they seem like an awsome low light tool.

    I have developed some nice callases from my 642 exactly where you have em. I used to shoot it a lot, but I don't anymore. My everyday ccw is a G36. I keep the 642 in a C.O.M. case in my car. When the 642 was the only gun I had, I shot it a ton, but I don't see the need to anymore now that I have more range friendly options.

    Yes, my thumb gets raw after a few shots also. What I do is grind down that point and some of the file teeth on the cylinder release, that has solved the problem. I wish S&W would go back to the flat release.

    My answer is, now that you know it works, just carry it and only shoot it if you have to. Then get a heavy enough gun for the ammo you want to shoot. I think you will shoot better and have more fun shooting.
