I decided I needed a different pocket pistol. I especially like to carry one in the winter for reasons I don't want to get into.

Anyway, while working at the shop I found this new 640-1 Pro series. It checked all the boxes I was thinking I had (and then a few). I wanted it small, hammerless, 357mag, in addition to those characteristics it also has night sights, recessed cylinder for moon clips, fluted barrel and a decent trigger pull.

It also has NO Hillary hole lol. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet however, I am sure with 158 grain 357mag its not going to be a range toy. May not be bad with 38s?

Anyway here are a few pics....just so we all know it did in fact happen.

I almost jumped on one of these myself. I’m thinking you’re really going to like it.

I would recommend the Gold Dot short barrel 135 38+P’s for it. I’m thinking you will find they will be quite pleasant to shoot with it and good defensive round.

I have a 442 cut for moon clips. I carry my load in the gun in the moon clips, and my reload either in a speed strip (off duty) or speed loader (on duty). Makes for good positive extraction should you ever need to reload, but dnot have to worry about the clip being bent for a reload in your pocket.

I will humbly take credit for saying you needed a J in one of your other threads. (y)

Congrats on the 640, that is a beauty. I've got a 640-2, 38sp only (although I'm sure it could easily handle 38+p).

The extra weight on that 640 will soak up some of the recoil of a .357... well, maybe not. That's gonna be a handful.

Congrats again, and enjoy!

Yeah, after seeing yours and some others I decided to switch out to it. Last winter it was a Kimber K6S. Which was a nice pistol but this one has more features. (Like the night sights)

My 640 is in my profile pic.
It has handled 357 just fine. I could rip through a few cylinders before it started to get uncomfortable.
Accurate and smooth.

Enjoy yours in health! 🍻

I picked up both 442 and 642 a couple years ago. Right place. Right time. Both are cut for moon clips and have action jobs. If I'm running to the store or a quick errand the the 442 gets stuffed in a jacket pocket.

I use Buffalo Bore .38 special +P 158 gr LSWC. A great defensive round.

I have one. Great gun.

Now on to the nit picking. It might shoot differently with mags compared to specials. At 50 feet, maybe a 2 or 3 inch drift across different loads. Each load will be 1" group, but the group may move as you change loads. Seems related to velocity, with similar velocity being similar location.

Seems more of a shift than with my other wheel guns.

Nice. For winter pocket (shoot-through-pocket) carry, I have the 340PD, which does a horrible job soaking up recoil, but is a feather in the pocket. But a hammer-less J-frame has a place for many of us!

Yours looks nice! Enjoy!
