Smith & Wesson 637 Gunsmoke Wyatt Deep Cover .38SPL

Lightweight Personal Defense. The Smith & Wesson 637 Gunsmoke is a traditional double action revolver that reduces weight by way of an aluminum alloy frame. Chambered for the .38 Special cartridge, it has a five shot cylinder and barrel liner that are constructed out of stainless steel. It is rated for +P ammunition, which makes it a handful when shooting more than a cylinder or two.

But there’s no reason to shoot lots of hot, duty-type ammo through this small revolver. The gun's purpose is simple- it was designed to save your life in an emergency. It is specifically geared toward the concealed carry market, an area where it has served with distinction for several decades.

The 637 is lightweight, compact, easy to carry, easy to draw, easy to use and enjoys an excellent power-to-weight ratio. The Smith & Wesson Airweight is celebrated for its reliability, while remaining one of the best carry revolvers ever made.

For those that question the practicality of a revolver, keep in mind they don't jam- up, stovepipe, fail to feed or extract. Compared to semi-autos, revolvers are not only more reliable mechanically, but they are also more forgiving with operator error, and are much simpler to operate under stress.

With revolvers, there’s no chance of limp-wristing or creating a stoppage. There's no magazine to accidentally release and no slide movement to impair the action (if blocked, if ejected shells bounce back into the ejection port, etc.).

Loading and unloading are much easier, and accomplished by using gravity to drop rounds directly into the cylinder, versus the wrestling match new shooter's often experience attempting to push rounds into a magazine under spring tension. In addition, revolvers aren't picky about the types of ammo they fire.

When encountering misfires, rather than highly skilled clearance drills required to get a semi- auto back on line, revolvers only require that an operator squeeze the trigger again. More importantly, revolvers are capable of firing while remaining completely concealed.

Auto's require sufficient distance from objects like clothing to cycle properly. Yes, basic gun handling skills prevent some of the operator-induced mistakes that can cripple a semi-auto. However, these type of errors are practically non- existent on revolvers.

The Smith & Wesson 637 Airweight is outfitted with a 1.875" barrel and weighs in at just under 1- pound. Notwithstanding its snub- nose barrel, this revolver shoots remarkably straight. It has been hand fit to precise tolerances and sports a pair of Smith & Wesson holster grips.

The hammer has been bobbed to provide a snag- free profile and "Gunsmoke: Wyatt Deep Cover" has been custom etched on the side of the gun. Although the Airweight sports a heavy double action trigger, it remains safe in all concealed carry conditions.

Overall, the Smith & Wesson 637 Gunsmoke is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a custom self- defense handgun.
