Default Smith S&W 442 Performance Center 11516 PC 38 -

If any of you guys in southeast Pa. are looking for one a gun shop I went to today has them brand new on sale for $329.00 thatís a great price. They have 7 in stock. Needless to say I bought one. The trigger is great compared to the standard J Frames. Shoot me a P.M. and Iíll give you the location. I wasnít sure if I can post that here donít want to break the rules.

I have 2 of these "Choo-pintos" and wish I hadn't bought them. As PC guns, their quality is way beneath the earlier, unlamented "Wyatt Deep Cover" 637 PCs that I adore. One has been "back" 2x for service: sideplate screws loosened constantly under firing (which some posters said was OK!), trigger return was weak or the trigger remained in the rear position after firing, DA was rough and irregular. I believe poster Armorer951 refers to this as "long ratchet." The OEM grips are a matter of personal preference: I find them slippery when firing, but that is easily rectified.

I plan on taking them to the range this week to see if I still hate them as much as I did 2 years ago. IMHO, there's more than one reason why this LGS has them posted at such a low price...

P.S. Never thought I would dislike a J-frame so intensely. Not the PC's best offering. A former poster opined this model was a way for S&W to use up surplus parts from the "Wyatt" guns: the cylinder, cylinder latch, grips. He may have been right.

UPDATE (5-19-18): I did get both guns to the range. Fired a box each of PPU .38 and Fiocchi .38 FMJ (a punchy load!). No problems either gun, happy to say. DA pulls still slightly rough, but not unmanageable. They passed their test.

I have a January 2017 mfg 442 PC and while I like it fine, it isn’t any smoother than my standard 442.
