    For me it is without a doubt S&W . I think they are about the nicest looking revolvers around imho . And are very durable ,
    when i was growing up my Dad had a 586 that we used to shoot
    as a range gun , and it held up to around 30,000 rounds and many of those rounds were +P reloads . I think S&W revolvers
    are great guns :)

    For general use, it's gotta be S&W.

    Ruger. They shoot better for me than any Smith except one, a Brazilian contract model 1917 that puts all six rounds through one hole.
    Generally though, the Ruger sights are easier for my eyes to pick up and the guns incredibly strong. I have used them for just about everything and they have never let me down.

    First choice = Smith & Wesson
    Second choice = Ruger
    Third choice = Colt

    Always looking for older Smith's or Colt's; but I
    have two new Smith's (686-5 .357 magnum and a
    629-5 "Classic" .44 magnum) that ain't half-bad too!

    Best Wishes,

    I guess it has to be "older" Smith's for me too.

    I was just wiping a late 70's Chief's Special down with a Rig-Rag yesterday and, on a whim, checked it for lock-up and end-shake. It was still perfect after 25 years. I'm a little proud of these old guys.

    Mine has to be the Ruger Bisley Blackhawk. Traditional style, great looks, good function, and easy on the hand.

    Ruger

    Over engineered to a fault, but you can do things with handloads that boggle the mind. They also make the basic platform for a wide variety of guns that never were. The work of Linebaugh comes to mind. Thanks to Bill Ruger for allowing the .475, .480 and .500 to be born!

    I have to go with Freedom Arms. You pay for what you get, and with Freedom Arms you are getting the best production revolver made.
    Second choice would go to Ruger. Tough revolvers at bargain prices. :)
