Smaller Grip than .44 New Army

Still looking for something my wife can shoot more comfortably. She can handle the Rem but is hard for her to cock and grip is a little large for her. Appears to me the .36 Rem is the same frame. I think someone once suggested an 1861 Colt Navy .36. Is that a smaller frame than the .44 Rem. I also looked at .31 Rem pocket but she wants a trigger guard. Any other suggestions are appreciated.

The Uberti .36 has a smaller frame. The Colt Navy while not really smaller is a lot different. It handles better than a Remington and they have lighter springs.

I flubbed my last post. I meant to say Uberti .36 Police has a smaller frame. Pietta .36 Police uses the same frame as the Navy.
