    Recommendation for a revolver w/a light DA trigger

    Want to get a revolver for myself and possibly to teach my wife with. Requesting any recommendations for one with the lightest DA trigger pull if there is such a thing, or one that a smith could lighten without breaking the bank.
    Thanks

    I would suggest a SP101 2.25 inch barrel or a S&W 940 with a 2 barrel.

    My wife has a 940 from the S&W performance center with a super trigger job on it.

    The SP101 I have also has a smooth light trigger DA only.

    I don't think you could go wrong with either one.

    I agree you cant beat the SP101. Its built like a tank. Slightly larger than a j-frame yet can be concealed easily. Just the right weight to tame .357 recoil. Your wife can shoot light .38 loads. And if she doesent like the trigger a wolf spring is cheap. And they are cheaper than a S&W. What else can you ask for?

    +1 on the SP101. The lightest DA trigger I've felt on a revolver was a SP101 .357mag that had been reworked. Very smooth, very light.

    A Smith and Wesson "K" frame! Model 19 (blued) or 66 (stainless).
    Best DA and SA pulls on the market and I've shot a few Rugers. Good triggers, but not great compared to the S&W's IMO.

    I also believe the way to go is Smith & Wesson. I've owned Colts, Rugers and Smiths and the Smith with a good trigger job, in my opinion, cannot be beat. I have a 586 Distinguished Combat Magnum in .357 with a 6" barrel that I've had tuned/honed and deer hunted with for many moons.

    I think it's easier to get a good DA trigger pull on a Smith and Wesson than it is on an SP101. We charge the same for either, but I much prefer working on the Smith's. Can't go wrong with a K frame.

    S & W 66 for me. Everyone that has fired it loves it.

    While you can certainly smooth the action on a revolver, you can't significantly lighten the pull by using a lighter main spring without the risk of light primer strikes. It's OK to do so on a range gun, but I wouldn't reduce it more than a pound or two for a defensive firearm.

    As others have recommended, a heavy steel .357 like the SP101 or 686 family is very versatile and comfortable to shoot.

    Gun control is not the answer. Gun control is the question. The answer is NO.
