I don't think I would have done that. You get a new revolver but it has a lock and ugly rubber grips. Your M12 is also an Airweight, holds 6 rounds instead of 5 and IMO is a nicer revolver.

In any event, it's not us that has to be happy with the deal, you have to live with it...

I haven't traded it. I'm just kicking around the idea. It's a 2" BTW.

I don't think I would, but then I've probably made some trades you wouldn't either.

I would keep the model 12. You can get a M642 for ~$370 after the $50 rebate...your model 12 is worth a bit more than that;) I say keep the M12 and save up for the 642.

Keep the model 12. The airweights are inexpensive compared to the rest of the smith and wesson revolver lineup. You can always find one when you save up enough.

Sell me the Model 12 for $400 and take the cash and buy the 642. That way you're M12 gets a loving home and you get the 642.

Thank you all for the replies. I bought it seven years ago from an old lady whose husband died. I paid $320 for it.

She said she only remembers him going to the range once or twice and it only sat in the dresser. I fired 24rds. out of it about six years ago. I would estimate it has less than 75rds. fired.

Does anyone have any information about this model or an estimation of its value? It's not easy finding info about the model 12 in any of my books or even the internet.

Just buy the 642 and then have both.
