If I'm going to sit, 4".
If primarily on foot, I could do 6", but would probably want a chest rig.

Yeah, if it's collectible - people are paying $1000 for mismatched rebuilds through CMP - keeping it in good, original condition is wise.

If the coil is bent out-of-round, it might not pass cleanly over the spring guide, and/or it won't allow the slide to pass cleanly over the spring, so, either way, a new spring is in order.

Looks like the spur has been modified to eliminate hammer bite.
Don't know what it was prior to that.

My bullets do creep forward a bit, with taper-crimped, plated 230s.

Commander ejectors aren't just long, they're the 9mm/Super width, even in .45s.

I shot a half-dozen Act-Mags for a couple of years, pooh-poohed the "many" reports here of cracked tubes, because, well, mine didn't crack.

Take a look at the Walther CCP, and the S&W Shield EZ.
They're both compact 9mms, with grip frames long enough for full, three-finger grip.
The actions are designed for easy slide racking.

22-4 is a great gun. It's really the only revolver I shoot very much.
S&W also made a 1917 version with longer barrel, if that's what you want.

I also would not, as some advocate, simply install an extremely heavy recoil spring as a "conversion", as that does more harm than good.
