I have been absent for a while but wanted to share the new Classic Model 42 Airweight Centennial with you guys and gals who love J-frames. This one has really grown on me.

The action shot was taken drawing the Model 42 from a Galco Royal Guard. It also worked well from hidden breast pocket of an EOTAC Field Jacket using a Galco pocket rig. This jacket is a great piece of gear as are their other products.

The new Model 42 is shown at the top with the Classic Model 40 and the current production Model 442.

Great set up Rob, I still think this is the best back up rig around. Good to see additional models coming out. Thanks for the information.

Sweet M42. I have been looking for one for a while now, and my FFL just cannot get one. Is S&W still making these? I snagged a M40 Classic when they first hit the stores, but I have whiffed on the M42 Classic.

The last time you posted pics of a S&W J-frame, I ended up having to write my local toy store a check for a Model 40-1. Now looks like I have to make another appointment with my local toy store. I didn't even know this model existed.

What is it about these J-Frames that make them so addictive.

David,

Go ahead and bite the bullet. You will regret it if you don't. The pain in the check book only lasts a short period of time... I promise :lol:
