Is there a good revolver to consider? Like shooting them but every single one of the carry size Iíve dealt with had a terrible trigger.

Itís been my experience that Smith and Wesson has decent double action trigger pulls.
Iíve owned their Model 60 -.357mag, Model 66 and Model 686. All three had smooth trigger pulls.
The trigger pull on any quality revolver can easily be made smoother by a gun smith by polishing the hammer, sear and trigger.

Check out Ruger's LCR line. The center-fire models have very good triggers. They can be had in a variety of calibers, barrel lenghts, and with or without exposed hammers.

The Kimber revolvers I have shot have good triggers. Not quite as good as my S&W from the performance center but dang good. Could eaisly lay a dime on the topstrap and keep it there through the double action trigger pull

I always thought the Smith 442 had a decent DA trigger, but the last one I handled was made in 1993. I don't know what the newer ones are like.

The 442 is one of my wife's carry guns. I think the trigger is fine and it's only a few years old.

When I feel nostalgic, I carry the SW 360 PD with a few strips in my pocket. Decent trigger, always goes boom.

+4 on S&W 442/642.
Both can be had sans lock.

I often conceal carry my S&W Model 66-2 with a 2 & 1/2" barrel in .357 Magnum. I have in the past concealed carry a S&W Model 42 Centennial. An easy to carry speed strip in my pocket provides extra rounds of ammunition.

The gun store has been supposed to get me a colt cobra but that hasnít happened yet. Looks like I am looking for a new option too.

I have a Colt Cobra (new model), and it does have a great trigger. Both in single and double action.

Those do look good. For whatever reason, mostly just because but I want a revolver with a regular old hammer. hammer

S&W Performance Center--- The 642 Pro Series-- excellent night sights and trigger, less expensive than the Kimber, it comes with moon clips and the cylinder is already cut for them which gives you reload options.

Also-- it is steel-- rated to .357 (if you wanted to shoot those) I chose the steel because it greatly helps with recoil management-- my wife carries this gun with 90gr Hornady ammo and she's totally comfortable and confident with it.

Colt Cobra, new or old model. Original models are lighter.

The new Colt Cobra has a nice trigger, and so does the LCR.

Ruger LCR. We love plinking steel at 50 yards with that thing. The trigger is so easy to stack that you will learn the break in no time.

I like to carry the Ruger LCR. Good trigger on it. Only part I don't like is the grip angle is different than mag pistols.


It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.

The Colt Cobra's trigger guard rubs on the middle finger during firing and is very sharp. Be sure to handle before buying
