If it has to be 6 shots and you want that size it sounds like you could use the SP101 in .327 Federal.

the sp101 is huge.. the lcr is way smaller

and the sp101 in 38 special is smaller then the .327

I'll second the Colt!
SP101 would be second choice.

Just learn to put 5 shots where they belong and get a J-frame. ;)

The smallest "new" 6 shot 38 revolver is the Charter Arms Police Undercover (http://www.charterfirearms.com/products/Charter_Undercover_73840.html). It holds 6 rounds of .38 Special and weighs only 20oz.

No 6-shot revolver in any real chambering is as small as those micro .380s. That said, another option is the 13 oz Taurus 856 lite...

This.

You really limit your revolver choices by requiring 6 rounds instead of 5.
If you can't get it done in 5 shots, what makes you think you will do it with 6?

I could deal with 5 and I'm going to look at a colt tonite

Colt Detective Special if you must have 6 shots of .38.

Three steel S&W J-frames - 5 shot - are my personal choice. Two 3", one 2".

If it don't say Colt, Ruger, or S&W, pass it by.

Agreed. J-Frames are great.

Whole Bunch of K frame Smith and Wessons out there for a fair price. I like my 2' 64-5

check out the S&W J frames..................many choices in .38 special and .357 magnum. quality, dependability and stopping power to get the job done.

A 6 shot revolver in 38 spl is not even going to be close the size of an LCP. A 5 shot J-frame or LCR is IMO (and I own exemplars of each) notably bigger than an LCP. A revolver, let alone a six shot one is simply going to be much wider. As to the SP101 I find it to be much closer in size and to carry much more like my Glock 26 than my LCP.

I don't have a colt D frame but it is roughly the size of a J frame.

I'll try to post some pics later or an LCP by some revolvers.

Old Charter Arms Undercover will do the job for about half the cost of a J Frame Smith & Wesson. Not as pretty but they work. Only five shots though.

Good little guns for the money.

(I know nothing about the new ones really.)

Could you give us a range report when you get your new shooter?
Congratulations, I think it'll serve you well.

My Charter Bulldog is insulted.

I have an SP-101 and a S&W M37, but the only revolver I carry is the Bulldog Pug .44 Spl. I like the M37, but .44 Spl. > .38 Spl. The SP-101? If I had it to do over again, I'd have let that one sit on the shelf for some other fool. It's grossly overweight and has a crappy action. I think about selling it regularly, but remember it's nice to have a couple of guns that can be stashed and not worried about, because you don't particularly care about them.

Colt Police Positive is pretty small and light, and holds 6 rounds.

I know the OP made his decision but perhaps others will find these pictures informative.


Top to bottom LCP, J frame, Glock 26. Honestly I think the G26 is closer in size to the revolvers than the LCP. I got out my calipers and at its widest point the glock is 1.2" wide, the J frame is 1.3" and the LCP is 0.80". The grips of each are 1.18, 1.22 and 0.77" respectively. I didn't measure my SP101 but it is notably heavier and feels and appears larger than the the other revolvers.

uh, you won't find a 6 shot revolver, or even a 5 shot revolver, the size of a LCP. just FYI. (i'm not counting those goofy NAA 22's)

Just settle with five shots and get a s&w air weight or a ruger lcr. I have both and prefer the lcr
