For absolutely the lightest smoothest revolvers I've done, the Ruger Security Six and Redhawk lockwork design lends itself to great double action trigger pull. Naturally most people don't go to the trouble to tune their revolvers to this degree so we'll stick with out of box stock revolvers. You're not going to go wrong with any quality made modern revolver IF IT FITS.
A couple of things come to mind? Are you wanting a slim grip? And are you wanting an adjustable sight or fixed or going to use lazer? I purchased a S&W Pro-Series 60-15 SS 3inch with adjustable night sights that shoots point of aim for me about a year ago? It is very manageble with +P loads and easy back on target. Very accurate if you want a new revolver I would reccommend these hands down. If you looking for a used version the S&W 60's, Colt police Spl., and Detective and the Tarrus 85's are as good of choices that you will find in small frame. If you perfer a heavier frame go with a Colt Python or Ruger SP-101 in the 357 catagory.
NOTE:The laser options are better for the J frame Model 60 S&W if that's the direction you like?
