Smaller Frame 357?

Dec 15, 2007
I've decided to pick up a smaller framed 357 with a 3" or 4" barrel.

I've had 686's and a few other larger framed S&W's, Ruger's and a Colt or two.

I don't want something as big and heavy as those and have been thinking of a 3" barreled S&W 60, a Ruger SP101 or another option, a Kimber K6S DASA.

I can't see me carrying it, but at the same time, all of these are lighter than a 686, GP100 or one of the newer Colt's.

Any ideas from those that have had one or more of these?

Years ago I picked up an apparently unfired ss service six, 4", for $225...that product line might be more than you're after, but less bulk than a 686 for sure.
