I believe the 442 is listed on the S&W website as $561.00 MSRP. That's only a $39. difference Not bad for those that want wood and a built in safety.Just wondering what would be the advantage of buying it over the 442?
Wood grips and safety for an extra $200 plus?
I don't see the 42 as being a huge seller, so it's probably destined to be another "collectable" like the original lemon-squeezers. Low number sold and all that...I believe the 442 is listed on the S&W website as $561.00 MSRP. That's only a $39. difference Not bad for those that want wood and a built in safety.
I remember that other thread . I didn’t see anyone bashing you. What I did see, (then & now) was the absence of any verifiable documentation from you to support your claim that S&W has any future plans of dumping their horrendous internal locks.More "No Locks" from S&W as I stated would be coming from them in another thread and was bashed by peeps that thought they knew more than me.........
You're referring to the Model 40-1 here, which is a steel frame revolver in blue, nickle or case hardened finishes. The re-issued Classic Model 42 has a black alloy frame and blued carbon steel barrel & cylinder.My favorite shop has one but it's the bright ss/nickle finish that makes it look like a pimp gun. I'd be tempted to buy one in the case hardened finish though, just as a collection piece.
Well, so did I and just about everybody else in the shooting community. I don't know why S&W isn't marketing the M42 more aggressively. Nothing in the 2009 catalog, nothing at the SHOT Show, no press releases. This thing should sell like hotcakes, no internal lock, airweight, +P rated, what's not to like?I must've missed this model release.
