Double action wheel gun preference (poll)

For a general purpose double-action wheel gun (not ccw or hunting) whats brand & model is your preference for wheel guns? Why?

By general purpose i suppose that means open carry, home defense, shtf,etc

I prefer thr Ruger GP100 for these reasons:
(Copied from a post in another thread)

Field stripping and overall design
No side plate
Triple locking cylinder
Ruger uses a peg thing that holds the mainspring and hammer strut making grip size selection better.
Can eat purely magnum loads with minimal issues aka its “a tank”…(or as @Jtr says “a clunker” :rofl: )

  • Ruger
  • Smith and Wesson
  • Colt
  • Kimber
  • Other -specify

I like the trigger on the Colt Lawman MkIII. It is as smooth as I need it to be. I’m not into speed loading but just at the range and it works just fine for me.

I’ve been meaning to give this a shot. I can dry fire real close to him, but never tried it with live ammo. With such a heavy trigger on that, it takes a lot of effort. And training.

Pulling the trigger a lot will.

So I voted Ruger… but Smith and Wesson is RIGHT there.
I love the 686 7 shot model.
But if I am carrying a revolver it is my Ruger GP100
I rarely carry that pistol though. Like hardly ever…
I am an auto guy. Hahahahaa

I have an old S&W mod 15 that’s good. My Ruger lcr works well. My Taurus 7 shot 357 works well too. Super Redhawk in 454 is my favorite but w/a 9.5" barrel and a scope it’s not really a carry gun. Then there’s the single actions. I carry my Kimber most of the time. Not into carring a revolver when a semiauto is available.
