Ruger Vaquero; built like a tank and ultimately reliable.
Second; Remington 1858 w/ Kirst conversion cylinders, just because they work, work well and feel right.

I like my .357 Ruger Vaquero and my .22 Heritage Rough Rider.  But, the Ruger is definitely my favorite.

Uberti Cattleman; .45LC; 7.5" barrels.

Got about 8 of 'em.  7 plowhandle grips and one Bisley for long range pistol shootin'.

They are inexpensive, feel sort of like real Colts, danged reliable, and pretty.

They work for me until I can afford real Colts; which may be never.  Haw! Haw! (sniff, sniff, ahem!)

My favorite CAS pistols are my Reminton 1875's.  They are just so cool.  Especially with shooting Black Powder out of them.  The 5.5 inch model feels so good in my hand it's like an extention of my arm.

I started with Ruger .44's for the very same reason, and still have one rifle in .44, but I've switched to OMRV in .45 w/ 5.5" barrels.  I've just never had any problems with my Rugers, and ever though I owned other replicas in various barrel lengths and calibers that pointed a little easier, every single one of them had to have some smithing done.  Rugers just work, and keep on working.
Ruger 4-5/8" Vaquero and a Ruger 4-5/8" Bisley Vaquero. Both blued in .44 magnum. I had them both before I got into the sport and they do double duty as ranch/hunting guns. Can't beat them for strength, reliability and affordability!

Taurus Gaucho's in 45LC if I am shooting smokeless.
Toss up between 1860 Colt clone or Remmie 1858 clone for BP C&B, sometimes I go out with both matching, sometimes its one of each.

Highly tuned Cimarron Model Ps with USFA bolts and USFA base pins. I also had them antiqued.

Rugers are sturdy but kind of ugly.

Just what most others are sayin'. RUGERS! Grin  My main guns are Vaquero 44-40's. Had Gary Reeder reshape the grip frame to what he calls the " Gunfighter " grip. Really fits nice in my hand. I also had a pair of RV in 45 colt done the same way, but don't shoot them much. Been shooting my 44's since 95 and have had approx. 15,000 rds through each and have never had a problem.  Cheesy

I tried ruger V's but I have short fingers and they just did not fit my hands. So I found me some Colt clones that fit real nice!

Uberti-made EMF New Dakota, 7 1/2" barrel in .45 Colt. Repaced the black chrome plated-brass trigger guard and backstrap with a steel set from a Model P. The thing just doesn't miss.

Iíve tried S&W Schofields and Uberti Colt clones. 

But the ones that I shoot most are Rugers.

My favorites?  The S&W for cool factor.

But, I can trust the Rugers

My favorites are my New Model Army Remingtons with their R&D conversion cylinders.  I like them 'cause they feel good in my hands, are reliable and point of aim and point of impact are the same.  And they are so much fun with full cases of blackpowder.  I shoot more accurately with these than any other revolvers I have.  So they have become my main match pistols.

Colt clone.  Feels great in my hand.  5 1/2" in 45 LC.  Gripmaker "ivory" grips.  Style points galore!  What Matt & Paladin used is good enough for me! Shocked Grin Grin

Well, I guess if I had to choose a favorite... it would be my Ruger Vaquero Birdshead in .45LC with the 4 5/8" barrel.  It just feels good in my hand & is a great shooter.  My second choice would be my Colt Clone by EMF in .45LC with the 5 1/2 barrel.  This one looks great & is a real nice shooter as well.

Taurus Gaucho in 357 mag 4 3/4" bbl.  Price and lifetime warranty were my main reasons. The fit and finish are excellent and the heve been good shooters.

Howdy,
           I've got two Rugers and a Uberti C&B Navy. I like the Rugers 'cause I can beat the snot outta' them and they just keep running. Not @ a bad price as well.

For the match 2 Uberti blackpowder frame SAA's with 7,5" barrels and Grimaker's ivory grips, shooting .44 Colt ammo, because they are reliable, feel good and the price is right. For fun shooting Uberti/Colt OT's in all kind of configurations like RM 51 in .38 Spec + RM 60 in .44 Colt, RII in .44 Colt, OT in .44 Colt.

My favorites are '58 Remys with 8" barrels, bought them because I always liked the look of the piece and to me it spells Cowboy as much as a Model 60 Army Colt.   I wouldn't trade for even the best single action pistol on the market.
