I think you should consider taking the gun to a good gunsmith and have him re-crown the end of the barrel...it'll greatly increase the accuracy of the revolver.

"The crown, or very end, of the barrel is very important and greatly affects accuracy of a firearm. The crown is the very last portion of the barrel that has contact with a bullet. A damaged crown may impart an unwanted spin or wobble to a bullet as it leaves the barrel. A barrel can be recrowned and smoothed with hand tools, with the barrel installed or removed from the stock. An 11-degree cut is a popular industry standard for most rifle and handgun barrel crowns."
