Is there a big difference in flash between a 6 and 7 shot revolver?

I know it's probably a dumb question.
But is there a huge difference at nighttime between a 6 or 7 shot revolver?

I'm talking about the flames that shoot out of the sides of revolvers.

Thank you.

Not sure. That's why I'm asking.

Perhaps something different with cylinder dimensions that would affect it?

Not because of the amount of rounds in the cylinder.

The only way there would be more flash with a 7 would be if the cylinders were the same side and it was necessary to move the holes closer to the outer edge in order to have 7 holes. I doubt much if that would ever be the case.

Want low flash? Get a Russian Nagant Revolver.:)

well, someone's going to say it eventually, so it might as well be me for a change....

Yes, the difference is that there will be 1 more flash.....:evil::D

The "flash" is primarily a function of the cylinder and barrel/forcing cone gap.

If you have access to 2 revolvers of the same caliber, but different amounts of cylinder/barrel gap, load them both with the same ammo, and observe the flash at the gap.

Thats it, 6 or 7 has no effect otherwise.

I have a 686+ and I have not noticed any difference. But I don't have a "classic" 686 to compare it to. It seems to be about the same amount as a GP100.
