A coworker is offering me a stainless NIB 642 for $300. I don't really need another snub, but is this a good deal? This is the normal Airweight model, not one of the Titanium or Scandium framed ones....

You're right across the border from me. If you pass it up hit me up and I'll take it!

I can't speak for prices down there, but that's a steal up here. I bought one recently, and found through extensive shopping that prices ranged from $450-600.

I was extremely happy getting one for $450 :)

There's also a S&W $50 mail-in rebate for new J-frames, including the 642. It lasts til the end of the year... so make sure you get a receipt if you want to cash in on that!

I always consider Gunbroker.com as the easy check on what things are selling for.
The lowest I saw was $329 and they went up to $449. Many had no bids at this price.
Seems like $300 is a good deal if it's what you want.

That's a great price for a S&W Airweight. One thing though, if your coworker bought that revolver recently he might have already gotten the $50 Rebate. That might be part of the reason for the low sale price.
