There might be some other modern revolvers that should be taken into consideration.



I think we need a "poll".

I kinda like colt revovlers. Its the company i hate. The python has a better finish and grips, but im not a fan of vent ribs on revolvers. Colt/Dan Wesson shouldnt have done vent ribs. Colts have a slick action, but the cylinder release is dumb, the pull back style, they shouldve done a SW style release, instead of trying to re invent the wheel a la H&K.

The ruger Redhawk is very nice looking. Most other rugers just look like workhorses, not really pretty.

Don't mean to troll but I actually find that gun kind of ugly.

I think the recent GP-100s are rather eye catching.

Old gp100s with wood insert grips were good looking.

I totally agree with the GP100. (I'm not partial though.) And the old grips were beautiful. When I first saw them, I couldn't believe they were factory grips.

So I've said I like the look of the GP100. On the flip side, I think Schofields are ugly.

Why don't we start a 10 option poll? For modern revolvers produced from 1960 to present.
Let's nominate revolvers.

Have there BEEN ten revolver designs from 1960 onwards? Why not move it to 1900?
