They are essentially the same. The 442 has the black finish and the 642 has a stainless finish. Both are aluminum frame with steel barrel and cylinder.

I disagree, it differs from person to person. I am able to cc a 4" 357 mag.

I sometimes carry my Taurus PT92AF and have no problem concealing the full-size 9.

Just bought a S&W model 442. Can't wait to get it. It will be my 2nd. ccw gun. My other is a Walther PPS-9mm....

Don't overlook the Smith 640. All steel, and much easier to control due to the extra heft. (May not be an issue for you, but I have a lot of arthitis in my hands.) Same design as the 642/442 because it's their daddy. Not as heavy as the Ruger snub. Mine's a 1990 .38 Special, with etching inside the frame that says "Tested For +P+". It's 21 ounces unloaded. Handles +P ammo with ease.

With my two 38's - the Smith 438 Airweight and the Ruger LCR, I'm still hoping to come across an SP101 in 357. I know it's larger and heavier but I think it may still be OK for CCW - and it gives you 357.
Though I have a number of Smiths and Colts, I have a huge soft spot for Rugers. My first handgun years ago was (and still is) a Ruger Single Six convertible. It was excellent then and I have never been disappointed with anything Ruger makes. My opinion - they are a first class manufacturer.

I carry a S&W 442, found that a trigger job really did it justice.

I just love the old S&W Mdl. 60. Back in the days of that old Asian War I packed a Mdl. 36 Chief. I really don't worry about it only holding 5 rounds. I see where in the average gun fight only one and one half rounds are fired.
Damn I have tried every thing and I can not not come up with a one half round?
