Guns in this price range are best sold face to face as the cost of shipping plus the cost of a FFL at both ends can easily turn a $300.00 gun into a $380.00 or more gun.

I thought all 642's were Airweights?

A few years ago I tried to sell my 642 for $350 on Armslist for a long time. Turned down offers for $300, and finally traded it for another pistol.

Thank you..maybe I would have been happier with the 640..really disliked the 642..too 'snappy' for me..partial trade for G42..

New ones for just under 350.00 at Buds. Keep it, don't sell anything. It's a great carry gun. I have 2 of them.

Private sale, $350 or less.
To a gun/pawn shop, $250.
