Small Frame, .357 Magnum
Medium Frame, .45 ACP
I think he was looking for a small frame .45 ACP, I didn't see one of the S&W site.

Looks like Danny Glover's piece from the 'lethal weapon' flicks.
That's a fine weapon and all, but i'm not into the large frame.
I think the 325PD is where it's at. The thing about the small frame is just that. They're 'small'.
You could hide those in lots of places. I remember seeing a nice holster made for a small frame revolver.
Had a swivel clip so you could clip it to lots of places on your body.
Front of pants, small of back, inside jacket, etc.
edit: found it. I'd swap out the grips and get the blued finish. nice little piece, but pricey.

I've always thought of the super Redhawk to be one of those long-barrel-make-you-****-your-pants revolvers.

That thing was designed as a lightweight way for Alaskans to kill bears. It will blow a goddamned elephant in two but break your hand in the process. You better have a lot of hair on your third testicle if you want to use that thing.

In the caliber range you listed, you can get quite a few used revolvers in calibers from .38 Special on up. You could also get one of the CZ-75 compacts, FEG's P9 compact (their Hi-Power knockoff) or a Makarov.
There are a lot of people carrying the little Makarovs around. They're reliable and dirt cheap--you can get some for less than $150. They have tiny little sights, but otherwise they're great guns. Most fire 9x18 Makarov, which is hard to tell apart from .380 ballistically. (I say "most" because I'm not sure there are no 9mm para versions floating around.)
