S&W have made a special run of S&W 642 and 442 revolvers with ported barrels. These must make one heck of a bang when the trigger is pulled! Both are chambered in .38 Special.

    S&W has made a sweet B.U.G in the 642. Can be carried in so many ways on the body. .38+P hollow points makes a terrific back-up option on the ankle.

    Anyone know the going price of the S&W 442 with Mag-Na-Ported-Barrel?
