    They look nearly identical in every way other than the barrel lug.

    I like the way the Colt looks better in that regard.

    This is the correct answer

    My eye pulled to the Smith immediately, but the full lug on the Colt is nicer.

    Overall, the Smith - but would look much better as a full lug gun.

    Looks alone = the Colt

    Can I get the Colt gun with the S&W color/patina grips?

    no?

    I've always been a S&W fan due to overall looks. Never cared for the Colt downward curve of the body just over the trigger. Also Colt's "fussy" cylinder release. Overall, a S&W revolver seems more aggressive looking, in part due to the shape of the trigger guard. I own a S&W 686 and a 617 (both have full lugs). Also a model 41 semi-auto.

    Two fine firearms! The Smith & Wesson wins for me but only because of the grip styling, the non-checkered bottom 1/4 inch creates some more interest before the grip ends. If the Colt had that then it would be a toss up for me.

    Yes, but I'm wondering about this: why is S&W stock trading around $5-6 per share?
