TALO Exclusive S&W 642


    The Smith & Wesson J-frame revolver has been one of the more popular concealed carry and backup guns for many decades. Of them, the model 642 specifically has been chosen by many, including myself, as the go-to pocket and ankle gun.

    A Performance Center special edition version of the 642 is now available through TALO Distributors. Although I would not want to wear this over a duty boot in an ankle rig, I would happily carry this to the next social function or BBQ.


    The .38 Special revolver has a tuned action, chrome plated trigger and polished cylinder flutes. The sideplate screws have also been polished. The standard synthetic grip has been replaced by a more elegant synthetic grip with polished wood inserts.
