The Smith & Wesson Model 642 Airweight is now available in a special edition offered exclusively through the Performance Center and TALO Distributors Inc. Manufactured by S&W master gunsmiths, the new TALO exclusive J-Frame revolver offers an easy-to-carry personal-protection package with enhanced features available only through the legendary S&W Performance Center.

Chambered for five rounds of .38 S&W Spl. +P, the Model 642, with its lightweight aluminum alloy frame and durable stainless steel cylinder, is ideal for personal protection. The hammerless J-Frame model has been enhanced with a hand-tuned action that gives the revolver its smooth double-action trigger pull.

The double-action-only 642 is easily concealed with a 1.875” barrel. The revolver's overall length is 6.31”. With an unloaded weight of 15 ozs., the revolver fits comfortably in the hand and is fitted with a set of custom, synthetic grips with wood inserts. An integral front sight and a fixed rear sight are standard. It also features a matte silver, two-tone finish and is standard with the Smith & Wesson lifetime service policy.
