I am looking to trade in a kel-tec p3at and get a 22lr handgun. I am leaning towards a double action revolver. I would like at least a 5" inch barrel, and the ability to mount a scope would be a plus. Any recomendations?
Look at Ruger's line...several to choose from...

The one I borrowed this weekend was a Walther pp22lr. Not a revolver, but it had a 5" barrel and 10 rd mags, and it was a LOT of fun to shoot! I don't know about mounting a scope on it, as we didn't do that and it didn't occur to me to ask. But here's a link to it for sale online, and it has all the specs and a customer review, I hope that's useful for you. Oh, and the specs say that it's a SA/DA as well. Walther P22LR 5" Black
It's not a revolver but I have a Ruger 22/45 that once had a scope on it. It has a 5 1/2" bull barrell and is a real tack driver, especially with the scope.
you can put a scope on a Walther P22. You can buy a bridge mount but it's plastic so this isn't a high end target set up, still, with the bridgemount and reddot, it's very accurate an a LOT of fun. The Walther likes peppy .22's like CCI mini-mags. Mine won't cycle reliably with standard stuff but LOVES the mini-mags.
You hear a lot of bad press about them but I love mine, it's just a good fun gun and I use it to train my children.
look at the ruger brand.

For an auto I have a Ruger 22/45 and for a revolver I have a Taurus 94 with a 4" barrel.
Both are good 22s. Most of the auto are picly about ammo but the revolver shoots anything.
The Taurus is a lot cheaper than the S&W.
