    Default Re: Full underlug blued 357 beauty pageant. Ruger vs Colt vs S&W. Opinions wanted

    1st off, I'm a Ruger fan-boy. But I don't believe I've ever seen a decent factory blueing job on any Ruger hand-guns. Even to include the Six series. It always reminded me of a shiny blue/black paint.
    For those who've never fought for it, the price of freedom shall never be known.

Price tags and performance should be left out of the equation. In this beauty contest there is no talent show or questions about humanity.

    I personally think the Ruger is a great looking revolver but feel the other two outclass it with the edge slightly going to the Colt. What do you think is the best looking out of the three? By the way for those not familiar with revolvers they are a Smith and Wesson 529-1, Colt Python and Ruger GP100.

    The S&W Model 27 if using a registered Magnum would be the winner
    School me. What the hell is a 529? Or a full under lug on a 29 for that matter. Going to make me dig out the standard book, aren’t you’s?

    Going on looks, I like the S&W best, mainly due to the color of grips.

    The one I'd want to shoot, the Ruger. Looks more comfortable.

    Why the hate on a cast frame? I've never had a Ruger revolver frame crack and I've got some that have over 20k rounds through them.
