Default Model 442/642 - $319-rebate - best price?

An online retailer has no-lock 442 and 642 revolvers for $319 shipped. After rebate that's $289. Having a hard time not ordering... do they ever get any cheaper than that?

There was a thread only a couple of weeks ago lamenting on how all the cheaper J frames had been $300, now all of a sudden they're $360. Not going to get much cheaper. I know some had 642's for $299 not too long ago, but I'm not sure I've seen the no lock at that price. If you want one I'd buy it. Maybe they'll fall to $299, but really, what's 20 bucks. And if you wait, they might be $360 again til the rebate expires.

I would buy Two if I didn’t already have them.

That's an excellent price, imo. I'd say jump on it if you can.

One can go crazy searching for the lowest possible price. Seems like a waste of time to me as balanced over the next twenty years or so we are talking less than the price of one cup of coffee per year.

Thanks guys. Yeah, I get that $20 really isn't much in the overall scheme of things. I have two J frames from the 70s (36 and 38) and don't really need a 442... but for such a low price, it's hard to resist.

I'll probably hit the buy button this weekend.

Note that they also have the other basic J frames at the same price, i.e. 637, 638. I really like my 638. That rebate is burning a hole in my pocket, and I wouldn't mind adding a no lock 642. Really in the market for a frame snubby, though.

I wish S&W produced a no-lock 438/638. I have a beat up M38 and would like +p rated 438. I'm just done with models that have internal locks.

Personally, I'd rather have a steel frame. But I do carry a 442 and it's hard to beat. Especially if you're gonna pocket carry.

If I were in the market for another 642-1, I'd not hesitate at that price.

Well, guys, it took longer than the weekend, but the trigger has been pulled. 442 no lock is on order and should be here next week.
