I have a friend that has that smith and you can hit a fly at 10YD with lead 158HP's It is the most accurate to the sights I have ever seen on a J frame.

I have a 442 that has the nicest dwell in the DA trigger I have ever felt. You can stage it through cylinder rotation and then it stops nicely just before the break. The break is virtually the same as shooting single action. Dunno how they got it like that. I have an older Centennial that has a real nice trigger, but it can't match the 442 for accuracy.

Like that .45, too! Plastic has its advantages, but it just don't have the class of fine steel and walnut.

The grips on the .45 are old milspurp, but

the Vietnam era brown water navy black fiber grips. I MUCH prefer true GI contour wood or fiber to any custom or even aftermarket claiming GI, if for no other reasons than tapered bottoms for concealment, plus no nearly universal ambi safety cut, AND grips protect/support the safety plunger tube. It also has a short trigger as GI, and with flat MSH, fits me best.

Even it can work in some pockets, but a standard GI gun can go in a pocket, no problem, but getting it back out can be a whole nuther animal.

This one is accurate as uncowboy mentions, and

a lot of that has to do with this one quite slick and relatively light DA, and even lighter and crisp SA, puts to shame some larger and older Smiths owned.

The Bodyguard has always worked better for me than a Centennial, the corner on the stern both hanging more on pockets/waist hems, and shape gets the base of thumb. The factory wood and T-grip puts recoil back in palm, and control enough top of frame never touches web of hand, and I have foresworn all the trendy flatter boot grips for that reason, they slip and transfer recoil up into web.

Back in the past, I would have sworn both the Centennial and boot grips the ultimate, but, the more carried and fired, the Airweight and stainless Centennial went away, as did Spegels, Eagles, etc. Plus, nothing beats old school bizarre more than a Bodyguard.

I believe in history, the Centennial came first, then the Bodyguard which killed the Centennial for above reasons (and not just for SA as many are prone to say today), and then the larger later Centennial on the .357/+P frame. Tbe older smaller shorter .38 Spl frame guns sure are hard to beat for pocket duty, as weight is only part of the equation. Today, I would pick an old steel 36 over a modern bulkier Airweight, or whatever they call it now, if they even make it.
