Wrong forum, but I think they're the same gun. Go up to the revolver forums and ask there to be sure.

One has "LadySmith" scrolled on the side. The other doesn't.

Also the LS would have come with slightly different stocks - smooth rosewood.

Otherwise, it is the same revolver.

Ladysmith has 'frosted' finish. Mod 60 is polished.

Total novice here. But I swear I read someplace that the lady smith came with a factory trigger job. To have less trigger pull weight making it easier for less strong women to pull the trigger.

Is there any truth to that?

Not that I'm aware of. From what I recall, the only claim made in the advertising was the "more ergonomic grip," suitable for a lady's hand. I bought one as a 16th birthday gift for my daughter the year they came out (Model 36) in 1989.

Pretty well sums it up.
