Since I got my 6" SS GP100 357.......it is the best, even better than my 8" Dan Wesson 357.DA all the way!
There's no mention of the odd looking Mateba semi auto revolver. Anyways, I would have to say I like a single action. For some reason the grips feel a lot nicer in my hands. I also love being involved in my shooting and like to pull the hammer back on each shot. Fanning is very fun too. :-D :twisted:
Single actions are sweet..
My favorite revolvers!!!
The question is like asking which is preferred, the hammer or the saw?
The Western style Single Action, namely the Ruger Blackhawk/Super Blackhawk, is my favorite for heavy loads for use in the field or woods. It is extremely accurate, powerful, and rugged. In addition to being such a fine performer, it is the most handsome of handguns, either blue and case hardened, or plated and engraved. No other handgun has such elegant looks. nor wears grips of ivory, stag, pearl, or exotic hardwoods as well.
But, for rapidity of fire, and speed and ease of reloading, then the double action revolver shines. It can be dressed up as well as the Single Action, though lacks the beauty of form possessed by the Single Action. There have been attempts to build DA guns as rugged as the SA, but these attempts have resulted in the awful monstrosities seen with rubber grips and scopes mounted.
Just my opinion.
(Still my opinion.)
Double Action All Weather :-D

Colts are my all time favorite and Smiths & Rugers run a close second. I Just like revolvers real well. Here's mine.
I'm a DA man myself. Not That I have anything against SA revolvers. My ragged old hands just don't seem to work real well with the normal SA grip. I do have a Ruger Bisley Blackhawk that works well for me.
I enjoy both, but my SA's are only used for the range and hunting.
DA revolvers offer the ability to fire SA or DA, and have the added bonus of quick reloads thanks to speedloaders and moonclips.
The DA is great for CCW, night stand, woods carry, hunting, USPSA, and ICORE.
I prefer DA revolvers.
I going to have to choose my SA as my most prefered. I like both SA/DA but I'm not in to any speed competitions (DA), I just like to shoot.
I likes my 4" S&W 686P .357 mag just fine. No desire for anything else in a revolver. :cool:
Colt Anaconda, .44M, 4"
S&W 19-3, .357M, 6"
I have no experience with the SA revolvers but I really do enjoy Smith & Wesson DA's. One of these days I'm gonna get my hands on a Ruger Blackhawk.
Cannot vote since I like them both for different reasons.
The double action revolver is a work of art in that it has the lockwork of a precision piece of machinery (most brands), well balanced and beautiful to look at.
The single action revolver is a masterpiece of 19th century mechanical genius. The multiple clicks when preparing to fire is the sound of power getting ready to be unleashed. :smt071
I own a Colt Python, a S&W M19 and a Ruger GP100.
I've owned Rossi, Taurus, Charter Arms, North American Arms and I've shot Llama and Heritage revolvers.
You need to get a Ruger Blackhawk. They are good guns.
