I'd try an Apex kit. Not to hard to install and only $25.
Thanks for the tip. If I might ask, what does the Apex Kit consist of?
http://www.gunsprings.com/Revolvers/SMITH%20%26%20WESSON/J%20FRAME/cID3/mID58/dID263), and bought a set to 'play' with and I'm very satisfied with the results. An inexpensive investment. I love my 642-Pro.... much more than I thought I would, to be honest. It gets a lot of carry time.
I did just purchase a 9 mm LCR, (see the thread in the Revolver section). I cannot dispute the power of the 9 mm round but compared to a revolver's reliability, I couldn't convince myself to buy a 9 mike mike semi-auto. The LCR may infringe on the 'pocket-time' my 642 has been getting this year, but, it cannot diminish the fondness that has grown for that J-frame piece! I was fortunate enough to stumble onto a No-Lock model last Spring and pounced on it!
A lighter rebound and main spring with a longer firing pin.
Oops, marcclarke beat me to it.
Galco Executive works well this time of year if you like shoulder holsters. I wear my 442 in one when I travel long distances in a vehicle or while at events that require formal attire.
Still the best DA in my safe though.
I'm still mostly carrying this with a Mika pocket holster. However, I've also started using a Renegade Cozy Partner ankle holster with great success.
Featured in the picture is a Foursevens Quark Tactical flashlight, a Fiddleback Forge Hiking Buddy fixed blade knife in CPM 154 with micarta bolsters and curly oak, an HKS speedloader, Buffalo Bore 150 grain standard pressure hard cast wadcutters, and Altamont Crocback Silverblack boot grips.
Regardless, a beautiful photograph.
As much as I tried to get some fancy wood on the firearm, I kept coming back to these for fit and function. They even beat out the crimson trace set I had on there for a couple of years.
For comparison, here is a pair of Altamont silverblacks with a smooth finish on a S&W 640 pro. My preference is for the crocback checkering and the logo but you have some choices
There is a marked variation in color and grain between the two sets.
