Out of box new model is the LCR. A tuned S&W or Ruger can be very nice. My SP101 has a very nice trigger but it has been worked over. Older K frames had a very nice trigger.

+1 on the LCR by far.

A 2.5" Python would blow them all away hands-down, but they are incredibly hard to find and incredibly expensive.

The Python is probably the most beautiful revolver ever made IMO. Trigger pull on single action was great, but double action pull would stack (get heavier) prior to release, unlike a straight even pull of a S&W.

The 627 Bloodwork from the S&W Performance Center would also put many to shame.

The sweetest snubbie I've ever shot was my dad's 2nd Series Colt Detective Special. Maybe not as light as a Python, but pretty close.
Modern/current production? Start with a S&W.

I would buy what you want and have a trigger job done on it, the cost is not that much. A guy around the corner did one for a buddy in about an hour for $75 while we waited. Felt great, slick as glass and just a little lighter, well worth the money.

From my own personal experience in actually shooting a good number of rounds through my girlfriends LCR in 38 Special, I'd have to say it has the smoothest DA trigger pull I've ever experience from a stock revolver. It rivals the trigger pull on some of my revolvers that have been worked over. I don't know if all LCR's have such a nice trigger, but her's is butter-smooth.

I have a 26 year old taurus 85 SS that has a 6lb da trigger pull After a wolf spring and a cleanup some polishing it now breaks at 41/2lb DA. 2 1/2LB SA. Best trigger on any revolver.
