Three-screw Blackhawks have incredible triggers. My three-screw SBH is my favorite handgun of many.
One of my most enjoyable range guns is a S&W DA Model 4 in 38S&W. An absolute joy to shoot.
You must take:
Smith & Wesson Model 28 -
Smith & Wesson 4506 -
You mention a Ruger Blackhawk .357, 3 screw model. I was looking for one of those few months ago. You should consider yourself lucky to have one of those, I'd take that but if you don't like single actions all that much, then don't do it. 3-screw Rugers are best when they're appreciated.
I’d take the Smiths and the Tanfoglio.
As for the fifth choice, going to the font of all wisdom for advice: "Leave the gun, take the cannolis."
Todd I always enjoy your posts but in this case I can only say you owe it to yourself to try a Rossi 720 sometime if you haven't already.
No one can decide that for you.
I've run through couple few Rossis and sure do appreciate them though I'd *generally* think it's a given that an old Smith is the keeper of the two.
That said - Due to your post I looked up what exactly a 720 is and confess - I didn't actually know - I was lumping it into my Rossi interpretation pile.
That monster is pretty cool.
Anything that starts with a .4 that doesn't end in a *0* is worth a second look to me.
S&W Model 28 - unbreakable classic .357
Rossi 720 3" .44 Special cult classic
S&W Model 15-3 (4") or 14-3 (6"), whichever feels better in your hand - these were premiere revolvers hard to beat in any era.
I posted the same question here a few years ago.It came to what you like as the best answer.I have sold all of my “valuable guns” to pay for guns I like to shoot.
H&R Sportsman is a cool lookiing revolver , but poorly fitted and made. Gone
Tanfoglio - not interested in the caliber. Gone
Keeping a Rossi while letting go of Smith and Wesson? No. Gone
I worked from your original list.
