    My favorite would be a customized Ruger GP100 I have had for close to 20 years that has had some customization over time.

    Cool thread. Those SP revolvers are an incredibly great revolver design for the price.

    Pretty easy, since it's the only revolver I own. Always thought it was the most beautiful of the .44 Magnums, and still do, with a possible tie with the Anaconda, though that was not yet in existence when I bought this.

    I'll go with my Colt New Service in .45 Colt. I cut the barrel back to 5 1/2", put on adjustable sights and Herrett grips.

    Hi. I purchased one like that a couple years ago at an auction. Do you know if the porting is factory? Thanks.

    That one at the bottom is a weird revolver. It looks more like a reciprocator.

    I have a 44 redhawk with a weigatinny rail and red dot. I really like it a lot.

    My favorite is my 625. It just balances well and shoots well for me. Plus I love the way it looks and carries, and the moonclips are a plus.

    Mine is my 7.5" Ruger SBH 44 magnum "three-screw" (Old Model). The trigger is smooth and light. The long sight radius makes it easy for me to shoot well. I am guessing that I'm slightly more accurate with my Buck Mark, but it sure isn't as much fun to shoot. It's from 1971, IIRC.

    My 4" S&W 10-5 is my fav & has been for years.
    It's accurate & very soft shooting.
    Bought it used 08/24/2009 at Cabela's in Ritchfield, WI.

    So I've had it for a few years.

    125 gr plated over 3.7 gr of titegroup OAL of 1.445
    Very nice load!

    Not for SD or HD, but GREAT target shooter

    This week it's my old 19-3 with some Ahrends combat stocks (other weeks it's either a 15-3 or 15-4, sometimes a 19-7 snub) ...

    For the time being, i will claim this Uberti SAA as my current favorite.
    As of now, still unfired.

    S&W 696 no dash. Nothing beats the bang, thunk of a big slow moving hunk of lead.

    For me, it will probably always be this S&W 63 kit gun with 4" barrel (bottom)... Bought it used from a friend back in 1980, and is still as tight and accurate as the day HE bought it... :)

    Not sure. I've got a lot of nice revolvers.

    I am quite fond of this 1938 Registered Magnum though...

    Here's another old favorite of mine that started life as a .41 Mag Bisley. This one was done by Jack Huntington and it is a 5 1/2-inch barreled .500 JRH with Turnbull color case hardening.

    Thanks

    I actually love shooting vintage Korths and Manurhins more. I own multiples of each, but I prefer the 4" variety...

    This one can't be duplicated anymore. After a Cylinder & Slide blueprint of gun and the Douglas premium bull barrel were installed with front ball lock up it was sighted in at 25 yards with Ball spec ammo and then sent to Colt for modest engraving and a Royal blue. Then to Roy Fishpaw for Exhibition French Walnut to my hand size. I had the case mad a few years back . Yup this is my favorite revolver out of more than fifty left. .
