What's yall's opinion on this gun and what do you think it's value is? I had some guy's tell me it's worth around $400-$500 since it's not made anymore. It's a S&W model 640 Centennial 2 .38cal produced in 11/'93 that I inherited from my stepdad and it's only had 100 round's put through it in it's lifetime.

It may be a nice C&C gun but I dont really like it as it's very uncomfortable for me to shoot because it's too small for my hand. I want to either sell it or trade it for a PT 24/7 .45cal, opinion's???

I'd suggest keeping it as a pocket gun for carry. You can always change the grips to make it more comfortable.

For a good estimate on its value, take a wander through Gunbroker.com and GunsAmerican.com looking for your gun. Did this when I was foolishly debating on selling my 1911 and getting an AR (decided to keep my Kimber).

Thanks for all the info everyone, I'll most likely hold onto it as it has sentimental value also. Looking at Pachmayer's site I come to find I do not know my gun's frame? Could someone help guide me? FYI I want a grip that has the finger groove's and one that extend's to fit all 3 1/2 of my finger's.
Looks like its a Round Butt J frame. I think that there was some Square Butt J frames made but not sure. I know that there were both Round and Square K, L and N frames.
