    Yes, bobbing is easy and doesn't affect reliability in my experience. Make sure you test-function with your carry ammo. If you do a trigger job at the same time, just make sure you replace the mainspring with a lighter full-length spring. Don't try to clip the factory one.

    It's one of the easiest and most rewarding projects I've ever done.

    Thumb over trigger. Easy as pie, just as Sixto says. I have a Chief's Special and a Model 642 and I far prefer to carry the revolver that allows for single action shooting. Never a snag problem which I think is hugely overrated.

    The hammer can prove safer in a 'close encounter' also...
    Hammerless...have someone grab the cyclinder...then try to fire...it's a 'no go'...
    With a hammer...have someone grab the cyclinder...you can still fire the cocked firearm.

    For drawing from a pocket, the thumb on the trigger prevents any snagging...

    I have bobbed the hammer on several of my Revolvers. Never had a problem. If you have good springs it will hit plenty hard.

    Thanks for everyone's advice. I went ahead and bought a used SW 642. This is a great gun and hardly even remember I am carrying it, it is so small. It seems almost as small as the Keltec. This was a great purchase.

    Good choice. It is completely reliable and gives you a lot of choices in the ammo you use. If you pull the trigger, it will go bang.
