+1 to that. I lucked in to a good deal ($350) on a "used" S&W 640-1 about two months back. It is pre-lock, has it's original box, and is somewhere between VG and Ex in shape, with factory Uncle Mike's "banana" grips. In the overall, I was surprised by the fact that magnum recoil was so controllable with this gun. I did one 60-round qual course with Fiocchi 142gr magnums, and another 60 round course with 30 rounds Winchester Silvertip 145gr/30 rounds Federal 147gr +P+ Hydra-Shok.

I found that the gun could benefit from an overtravel stop and cylinder chamber chamfering. I think I may send it to the S&W Performance Center.

As for now, I'm going to carry the +P+ Hydra-Shok in this gun.
