Pretty much a toss-up. The Smith might have a little better trigger (the OLD S&W wheelguns had superb triggers), and the Ruger will have a stouter frame and simpler take-town for cleaning.

I am trying to buy the GP100 6" [KGP161].

It fits my hand better than the S&W. I thought the S&W might have a slightly better trigger, but I hear the Ruger gets better with shooting or dry firing.

I understand the Ruger is much easier to take apart. YOUTUBE has a video on it.

A little better, but if you really want to sweeten it, the first step, and the most bang for the buck, is a little lighter mainspring and a lighter trigger return spring. Check here:

The next step (if you REALLY know what you're doing) is to run a 1200 grit machinist's stone over both sides of the sear engagement, shim the hammer & trigger to eliminate side drag, and polish & lube all mating surfaces where relative motion occurs.
