It's a mistake to consider just weight. The SP has less bulk.

The right holster and belt will minimize felt weight, and you need some mass in firing hot .38 Plus P or .357 ammo.

The S&W M-60-4 .38 or Ruger SP in .357 would be my choices. I'd def. select the Ruger over the S&W if I wanted .357 chambering.

Most people answering questions like this do not read the OP carefully. That's why you're getting those references to K-framed guns. Given that you're a small man, I think I'd avoid guns that size for concealed wear.

Col. John S, Mosby, CSA, only weighed about 125 pounds, but was so dangerous that he had Lincoln feeling unsafe from him in the White House! But Mosby wore his Colt .44's openly!
