    I have been really happy with my 7-shooter L-frames. That extra round feels nice, I can shoot 38s or 357, and since I'm really super weird I can mount red dots on them. The 686+ and 586 are the models you're looking for. There are tons of aftermarket grips available too, so you can have as big or as small of a grip as you want.
    I shot the PX4 before it was cool.

    I had an IWB holster for my S&W 22 (.45 ACP N-frame). It's doable but it's a lot of gun for 6 rounds of .45.
    I guess 8 rounds would be better in the bulk to round count ratio

    That revolver weights just about what a 5" 1911 does if that gives a reference.
    Lot's of people consider N-frames too big for everyday carry, I don't.

    How do you plan to carry it?

    Are you planning to shoot a lot of magnums with it?

    AIWB. I don't think so? I really don't know much about this, I assumed that hotter .38s were the smart way to go.

    Check out Smith's 66-8 2.75".
    I was into 10mm Auto before it sold out and went mainstream, but these days I'm here for the revolver and epidemiology information.

    Hard to make a recommendation, AIWB is so body and comfort specific. I'd think that a K frame is about as large as most people would want to go. A 4" gun is doable, a 3" or 2.75" is a tad more comfortable for me. Stainless steel or nickeled guns may be better. In current production, a Model 66 would be the ticket.

    I can conceal a G17 AIWB with ease and comfort. I'm 5'11", 182lbs, fairly athletic build. With regards to stainless or nickel guns, is that for ease of maintenance/rust prevention?

    An N frame is fairly big for concealed carry. It can be done but it's a fair amount of cylinder bulk and weight. A lot depends on your use case. What are your anticipated needs driving a revolver?
