    Visually and studying the specs, the differences seem to be localized in the barrel.

    The R8 specs state it has a two-piece barrel; the TRR8 does not say, and the photo seems to show a blued-steel forcing cone area vs. stainless on the other two-piece-barrel gun, so it may be an older style one-piece barrel. The TRR8 has standard notch-and-square-post sights; the R8 comes with the V-notch-rear and white dot front. The R8 has the bottom-mounted light rail milled directly into the barrel shroud; on the TRR8, the rail is mounted with screws, and can be removed. This added metal for the rail, and the lack of a lightening cut around the extractor rod could also account for the 1-ounce weight difference between the two guns. I believe the TRR8 also comes with a top-mounted rail for an optical sight (it says "rails" in the description, and I saw one in a store with 2 rails mounted), and while I assume the R8 is drilled for this type of rail, as all S&W revolvers are nowadays, you probably have to buy the top rail separately. The triggers look the same, and I didn't see any differences in the triggers/actions listed in the descriptions.
