I would have to go with my Other vote.  I really enjoy shooting my Rodgers and Spencer and Star Single Actions.  My first handgun puchase was a Dixie Gun Works 1851 Navy, but the above mentioned pistols shoot so well for me.

Love my Birdshead Vaqueros for their durability and accuracy. Love my Rodeo for the unbelievably high quality of fit and finish and accuracy.  Grin

I have a cattleman which I like just fine. I am looking at a 4.5" USFA Rodeo used and in fine shape; may buy it soon. I like the look and feel of the Colt 1873.

  Hi from Spain again:
 
  I love to shoot my Cattleman but, I  have a great affection for my  Colt Army 1860 and now  I am falling in love with my new Colt Walker, ( all are Ubertis).

   I prefer the old image. the old times, the old feelings.

Well my favorite pistols are my set of old model Ruger Blackhawks. They handle very well. Oh yes they sport a set of white grips my wife had made for me with my alias laser engraved on them. I think they look great.

My three sets of Ruger Vaqueros, 3 5/8, 4 5/8 and 7 1/2, all in 45 Colt. They are hell for stout and shoot well.

I checked my reply from a year and a half ago.  I still shoot the same pair of Rugers.  Take a licking and keep on ticking.  Great guns!!!

Hartford Armory Remmington 1890's are my favorite single action, why? cuz they are tough as nails and balance is superb for CAS use. They are also superior to ANY other single action out of the box.

I own a couple of Ruger Vaq's SS 5 1/2 in.  44 Mag.  Great shooters but consdider them a little heavy.  Considering the new Rugers.  Anyone have the new Rugers in 45 and an opinion of them?

I like the Remington NMA for balance and pointability. The action is shorter than anything unless it's been short-stroked. Lighten the mainspring, add a couple cartridge conversions and they're ready to go.

I like my Ruger Bisley Vaqueros and my Birdshead Vaqueros.

The Bisleys are a dream to shoot. With the 4 5/8" barrel they are not too forward heavy, the Bisley hammer is easier for my short thumb (I shoot duelist) to reach. I put Power 1/2 cock notch hammers in them and this gives a very nice trigger.


The Birdshead grips fit my hands better than any other. I don't know why this is but they just feel right. I love the short (3 1/4"?) barrels because they make the guns lighter and more responsive, very neutral in the hand and this along with the fit makes these guns point perfectly for me.

I like Rugers for CAS because,frankly, we are rough on these guns and I would hate to break one! Rugers are relatively affordable, durable, and simple enough to care for.

Remingtons:
1-1875
1-New Model Army with R&D conversion cylinder.
I like them because they are a good design and not very many in Indian Territory shoot them. The design was so good Colt stole the idea for the 1873. Grin

Right at the moment my fave is a pair of 7 1/2" 75 Remmies in .45 Colt. Nobody in this part of the world shoots Remmies, so I've got 'em on style points, and when I take my time and shoot like I know how, I don't miss much with 'em either. They even work pretty well shooting one handed (I shoot Classic Cowboy).

Mah favorite pistol? Do Ah havta choose? Really havta ta choose? wal Pilgrim if Ah havta Ah havta, lessee it ain't Colt too D--- expensive 'n 'sides they don't fit mah han comfortable, ain't none o them foreign "clones" ither, nor is S&W revolvers
 'n it sure as h--- ain't th New Vaquero, thas just a Colt clone, in mah opinyn; 'n as Ah said 'bout th Colts they jes don" fit mah han proper.
 Now Ah'm sure thet thar 'r others out thar thet AH ain't mentioned 'R hav any knowledge of sooo Ah suppose thet mah favorite pistol--- no thet ain't rite ither. Mah favorite Revolver would hafta be Th "Old Model"Vaquero "Th gun That's built lik a tank" ta quote the R.A.T. sayin. Yep Ah'd swear bh mah Ruger "old model" Vaquero jes as soon as Ah d swear by th King James version, 'n be jes as truthful too. As fur as a long arm it's a toss out between the Marli 'n the
Winchester "n Ah sorta lean toward th Winchester in .45 Colt. It has no recoil and is relativily less loud than th 30-30 believe it "r not. Oops, ya didn't ask 'bout long arms did ya? O well as we Cajuns say C'est la vie. Ah'll probably miss out on replyin ta thet survey 'cause Ah already answered thet question

A brace of '75 Remington's with 7 1/2" barrels and caliber 44-40 of course! They fit my hands the best, they shoot to POA right out of tha box, and the nickel plating adds style points Grin
