      Was this made as a round butt, or does it have conversion grips on it. Just wondering, because my model 65 is a square butt. I thought that was all they made. It was my favorite, until I bought a SP101. Now, I just don't know. They both have their strong points.

      I have 2 revolvers both Rugers, both .357mag. One is a 4" bbl SS Security-Six, with the Pachmayer Presentation grips, and the other is a blued 6 1/2" bbl Blackhawk, to which I've added a 4x32 NcStar scope. I am interested in a Russian IzMech MP-412 Rex. It's a top break revolver in .357mag with a polymer coated frame and grip. It was available with 4" or 6" barrels. It never made it to the US market due to the Clinton / Yeltsin agreement, but it did make it to the European market. If anyone knows where I can get my hands on one, please let me know.

      I currently own a S&W 586 6" BUT if I could pick three more I want to own it would be in this order:
      1) Colt Python 4" Blued
      2) Smith & Wesson 586 4"
      3) Colt Python 6" Blued

      I might use the 4" 586 as a carry gun but the others would be Safe Queen/Range guns. I might be tempted to shadow box frame the Colts so I could just look at em and look at em and look at em...... The box would have a hinge on the front so I could take em out and use em for what they were made for. I'd most likely wear the blue off just caring for them!
      Anybody get the idea that I want a 4" Blued Python?

      I really like the Smith Model 10/64. I have a 3" model 64 that I carry often.

      interesting that the initial question did not say DA or SA but it appears over 95% are responding as a DA question.

      which makes me wonder what the answer would be if one were to ask specifically SA?

      this isn't a good question!!

      should have been:
      Which Double Action Revolver do you prefer?
      Which Single Action Revolver do you prefer?

      I voted Ruger for 2 reasons. I still have (and shoot), my Dad's 357 security six. It is 30 years old at least, and never missed a beat. Ok, so the blueing is worn, so what. I have lusted after a redhawk in stainless for years and still don't have one.

      Whew..I've had all kinds if revolvers over the years. I'd have to lean to S&W as the ones I liked best. I only have one at the moment a model 25-2 that is a lot of fun to shoot. I have had Colts and Rugers and even a Taurus wheel gun or two. I just seem t shoot the smiths a little better. I'm not really sure why.

      Here's that Mod. 25

      Sounds like a new thread is in order.

      What do we like the best. . . . ? Almost like asking what we like better; a boat, or an airplane. Depends on what we are gunna do with it. Having said that; my list would be:
      Hunting varmints: 4" Colt King Cobra
      Hunting Large game: Ruger & Freedom Arms revolvers
      Hunting dangerous game; Ruger 5 shot single actions/Bowens
      Hunting Grouse: S&W model 41/ Colt woodsman 22s
      Cold weather personal defense: 5" Kimber Custom Classic .45 acp
      Hot weather personal protection: 2-1/4" Ruger SP101 bobbed hammer
      Woods walking: S&W .44 spl.
      Plinking: 6" Ruger GP100

      Cheers!

      I choose Ruger just because I have so many of them. I should have choose other because I love my Dan Wesson 15VH. Depending on mood I just change the barrel to the length that suits what I want to do.

      I chose S&W because they have a couple smaller models for concealed carry that I am interested in. I am not a fain usually of wheel guns but they sure do make me reconsider

      I bought a Ruger Super Redhawk a while back. I had a Redhawk before and liked it but sold it to get a Para 1911 i like the super Redhawk a little better. It's a bit more beefy in the fame and that's a good thing to me being it is launching a pretty hefty load (44 Rem Mag).
