    new S&W 438 duotone

    Hi, was at the gunshow yesterday and found this s&w 438 duotone ,guy said it was a limited production . Can't wait to shoot it this week. I think it has aluminum anodized frame and satin stainless cylinder , barrel and release . Anybody seen one of this before ? What you guys think of the duotone, I was originally going to get a black one but kind of fell in love with this one. I already have a black s&w 442 to go with this one for daily concealed carry. Thanks for the input.

    I think your gun has a cool look to it (different than the norm but pleasing to the eye). And I like the 438's ability to fire a single action aimed round if the opportunity arises, while maintaining a snag reducing "hammerless" profile. I used to have the heavy metal 649 .357 (23 oz.), and it was a pleasure to shoot .38+Ps single action, very accurate for a snubbie, and just right for your average .357 defensive round. I eventually went with a 442 because of the weight and slickness, as I wanted to carry in my front pocket. I have rarely seen a Smith revolver I didn't like! Long as it ain't Taurus Pink. GACK!
    Eli Enjoy!
