The streamline, lightweight, no-snag design of the Smith & Wesson® Model 442 Airweight® makes it an ideal concealed carry double-action revolver. The internal hammer of the 442 eliminates the risk of the hammer getting snagged on clothing, holsters, or purses when drawing the weapon in a self-defense situation. The low profile, ramp front sight and the fixed notch rear sight also aid in snag-free presentation of the weapon. The 442 is double-action only, making it an extremely fast personal-defensive handgun to deploy in stressful situations, as there is nothing to remember to do except point and pull the trigger. The lockwork of the 442 is completely enclosed to keep dirt and pocket lint from interfering with the gun’s action. The synthetic grips and inherently ergonomic design afford natural pointability. The Model 442 is built on Smith & Wesson’s famous J-Frame, it has a 5-shot cylinder rated for +P .38 Special ammunition. The barrel and cylinder are constructed from carbon steel, and the mainframe is made of lightweight aluminum alloy. All the exterior metal parts are finished with a matte black coating that resists corrosion caused by humidity and perspiration when the revolver is carried close to the body. The Smith & Wesson 442 Airweight Double-Action Revolver carries easily, deploys rapidly, and has enough firepower to handle any self-defense scenario. Made in USA.
