I suggest that there may be a bit of a problem when thinking of an "Entry Level" gun, revolver or any type. Guns don't wear out like other "entry level" objects do. If you buy a cheap car for your teenager, for example, it wears out. Then they (or you) buy something better. Same with lots of things like tools, running shoes, whatever. But at the end of a lifetime, that entry level revolver will still be in the same "entry level" condition it was at day one.
For that reason, I suggest allowing the "upgrade" to happen before you buy the thing at all. Buy the Smith instead of the Rossi. At the end of a lifetime you'll have a Smith.
Something like that.
