Default S&W 640-1 Photos Let's See Them!

I'm sure many of you are as happy with your S&W 640-1 as I am. They deserve their own picture tread, so lets see them!

Here's my Centerfire Systems Police trade-in after some light polishing with Flitz and some new grips. It was in great condition to begin with and only needed light cleaning. Inside wasn't too bad, but I de-greased and re-lubricated anyway.

Got 2 of them--both on duty in nightstands on opposite sides of the bed. They're a little shy about being photographed, though. And, they are not as shiny as yours...

Any word if they will be getting any more in stock? Seems like a pretty good deal on a quality piece of shiny magnum steel.

I missed the first batch, but got an email from them when they got more and bought mine at that time.

Bought mine from the original owner - a while back. No idea WHY he let it go. He wouldn't say, & I didn't push it...

Although just a bit heavy for every day pocket carry, it's truly a great little revolver. Carries very nicely OWB - under a minimal cover garment.

I've shown these pics before:

This is an older image of my "melted" S&W 640-1 with XS Big Dot sight.
The work on this 640-1 was done by "Vito" at S&W Performance Center.

Yup, a little bead blasting and some new shoes made her more presentable

I don't have a picture of Just my 640, but this shows the 640 on the top right. The top left is a 940, and the bottom gun is a 40.

My 640-1 Pro Series...

This one had to make a few trips back to S&W before they got it right, but now all is good. The grips are from Crimson Trace and originally came from the factory on one of my 642-1s (note the S&W logo).

The grips provide a little more recoil absorbing capability with magnum rounds and the laser is just a nice bonus.

Mine just came in today from the Centerfire batch. I have posted over on the other thread, ( Police Trade-in 640s at Centerfire ) but here is how she looks with a nice new set of Eagle "Secret Service" stocks.



I couldn't be happier. I have been following everyone's posts, and thinking about bead blasting and all sorts of things, but now that I have disassembled it and scrubbed it out, put it back together with a little fresh lube, and taken some time to admire it, there is only a very light evidence that it has been carried at all. No abuse, and does not appear to have been shot much.

I intend to carry it anyway, so pending a range session this weekend, if the weather allows, I think I'm just going to keep it like this. I now have about half a dozen of the "Centennial" style guns, going all the way back to a pre 40, actually a pre "Centennial" which the first called the "Chiefs Special Hammerless", with a four digit serial. Have a model 42 no dash, an M&P 340, a 340 PD, a model 640-1 Pro Series, and now this 640-1. None with an Internal Lock. Some day I'll get them all together for a family portrait.

I think that we have all done very well on this offering by Centerfire Systems, and they have been a pleasure to deal with, and I will be watching their website for any deals like this in the future!!

Best Regards, Les
