Is there any reason to get a single action revolver, outside of collecting antiques and historical firearms? Also revolver thread. Looking for a home defense pistol and I'm debating on a revolver or semiautomatic pistol.
>>
>>28729194
If memory serves me right, there's an instructor out in Arizona that teaches how to effectively use a SA revolver in today's world. It was an article in a magazine. I'd still choose a semi or a modern day revolver but it was an interesting read.
>>
>>28729194
for fun but if you must buy a revolver for practical use dont buy a single action

Ruger .22 single six good training gun
>>
>>28729251
single 6 or 10 is a great plunking gun but its a horrible choice for training cause nothing will carry over to a gun you would actually want to use

yay you mastered reloading a single action revolver and cocking the hammer everyshot
too bad you decided to carry a glock
>>
>>28729194
Ruger Blackhawks are good hunting revolvers.

Single action is inherently safer because they can only be fired when cocked. A modern designed one is about as safe a gun as exists.

This makes them perfect for uses like plinking, hunting, and pest control
>>
I'm going to say that yes its useful for just about every application short of making s'mores. But is it ideal? No. However if rather have one then nothing. Single Actions I've used for years, I'm pretty comfortable with them but that's also a few thousand rounds down range. Even on DA/SA revolvers I still cock each shot for the best trigger control. So yes they have a use, just nit as much as a side swinger.
>>
>>28729231
It depends on your definition of practical use of said gun.
A lot of people prefer single action for back country bear guns, mostly because John Linebaugh makes some pretty crazy loadings that are often only available in single action frames. When I'm out hunting I carry a Single Six with .22 magnums in case I have to pop a wounded animal again, or if I decide I want to shoot a rabbit with something that isn't going to destroy every ounce of meat on the animal.
As a home defense or concealed carry gun they are horribly outdated though, even double actions are, but I know a lot of guys who can shoot and reload double action revolvers faster than most people can shoot and reload a glock.
>>
It still shoots bullets and makes things dead.

Is it the ideal choice? Probably not, but it'll still do the job.

Now if you're talking like a blackpowder musket I might say you should reconsider but eh.
>>
>>28729194
Trigger on a single action is leagues better.
>>
I've got a single 6 and it's a great gun for new shooters at the range. Plus cowboy fun! It isn't a HD gun and I would tell anyone they have to get one but you can't have a full collection of guns with out one IMO

So, you're sayng that DA is the same as SA trigger pull. Because that's just wrong. I always shoot a revolver SA because it's more accurate

>no police department anywhere would issue out single action revolvers
Based on the shooting skills of the average cop I can see why not
>>
>>28729992
he thinks you are claiming that every single action revolvers trigger is nicer than any da/sa revolver just cause its a single action

which is like saying every 1911 has an excellent trigger pull just cause its a 1911 its bullshit

>I always shoot a revolver SA because it's more accurate
you cocking the revolver does not make the revolver more mechanically accurate
all it does is make pulling the trigger lighter and more user friendly

if you stuck the gun in a vice the gun wouldnt give a shit if it was being shot as a double action or single action

If you think you'd perform much better in an outright firefight, you need to do some research on the fight-or-flight reaction.

Hunting with a single action is pretty neato.

Smith and Wesson Schofield. Arguably, the Webly was better but the Smith is the iconic break-action.

You can buy a Uberti replica in .38 for about a grand, or you can buy an Iver Johnson in .32 for about a hundred.

They're pretty fun, and I have a stainless single six convertible that's going with me if the habbining habbens. It can shoot lr, longs, shorts, and magnum. Would be nice for small game hunting, in a pinch.

Also, most people use them for stout magnum loads, so they don't accidentally double tap them.

Other than that, I'd never consider using a single action as a home defense gun.

I guess some people like the way they handle more than DA revolvers? Also, Some examples(like the Rugers and Freedom Arms) are probably a bit more robust mechanically.

Gunsite offers or offered some defensive SA revolver courses...
>>
>>28729194
You can hunt with an SA, honestly I almost always shoot my DA wheelgun in SA anyway because I like SA triggers. Its just nice to have DA just in case.
>>
>>28729465
I'd rather a DA for bear defense because there are fewer steps involved in firing it. S&W makes DAs all the way up to .500 SW thats gotta be big enough
>>
>>28729538
Most DA wheelguns can be shot single action.

>>28729194

>>
>>28730045
>cocking the revolver does not make the revolver more mechanically accurate
It does because it's not in a vice it's in your hand and the more force required to break the trigger the more wobble introduced.
That being said, DA is there for followup. Also the best thing about a revolver over a semi is that when you get a dud you just pull the trigger again instead of going through a drill to clear the jam

i don't really like revolvers that have the ejector rod sleeve (or whatever you call that thing supporting the barrel) going all the way to the muzzle

I know a farmer who prefers a SAA when he walks around the ranch, mostly in case he runs into bigger animals. He says its just a preference thing and he's even carried it occasionally
as for your HD, it really doenst matter. you get the home field advantage when it comes to HD set up, you can run and get another gun, preferably a rifle or shotgun, if it gets really bad. I keep a model 66 on top on my fridge and a 9mm in my desk drawer in my den

If you reload and have a stout modern SA like a Ruger Blackhawk or Freedom Arms you can regularly shoot hotter rounds than you should from a DA. Only DA I can think of offhand with a frame as stout as a modern SA is the Ruger Super Redhawk.

Its a fucking webley mate. IN .357.

This gun is on the same list as the hmg sturmgewehr. I need it. And compared to the stg, i could actually get one of theses even in sweden.

didnt want to get a new car anyways.
>>
>>28743384
The whole thing is just completely senseless IMHO, it's not a webley-fosbery, it's not even in original caliber ffs. Do they think people who drop 10k on a wheelgun can't come up with some .455 once a year to shoot it?

I completely agree with you, but I'm not against other calibers either.

My biggest gripe, and I have fire on my ass hair about this, is it doesn't even say WEBLEY on it anywhere. GO. FUUUUUCK. YOUR. SELF.

And ofcourse it is going to flop, $10k is beyond stupid, especially for a non-faitful reproduction.

IF they had gone the HMG stg route, we'd have a $600-800 pistol, in classic calibers with the option for other calibers. AND IT WOULD SAY WEBLEY ON IT.

>>
>>28744286
And vice-versa, would pay more for a true reproduction. They've satisfied no one but maybe .357 top break revolver enthusiasts, which probably amount to just their design team.

Let's not forget that real Webleys, even unaltered ones, of the type their $10k waste is based on, cost much less.

Shit, didn't a REAL Web-Fosbery sell for just about $20k?
>>
>>28744330
Maybe. But a webley-fosbery is a different monster than just a Webley. The fosberys are the semi auto revolvers.
>>
>>28745029
Yes, they are significantly more advanced than the standard Webley revolver.

They are also extremely rare, and collectors items just because of who used them and when.

So WHY IN THE FUCK would a not-reproduction standard Webley cost half as much as the holy fucking antique collectors grail of semi revolvers, from the same damn company no less?!

I almost feel like this is some britcuck conspiracy. They want this new pistol to fail, so they can point at it as a sign that people don't want guns in Britain.
