    Limiting myself to ones I've owned and shot enough to evaluate fairly:

    1--Ruger Speed Six
    2--Colt Detective Special (and the Police Positive Special)
    3--S&W Model 13
    4--S&W Model 36
    5--Colt 1851 Navy
    6--Sig P225
    7--Ruger Vaquero .45 Colt/ACP (small frame)
    8--Walther PP
    9--Ruger Redhawk .357
    10--Colt Official Police

    I've found them to be a bit wrong for my hands. I tend to prefer the K frame size. They're great revolvers though.

    I have to admit, this thread is more interesting than I thought it would be. There are certainly some interesting trends arising.
