Choosing the best Revolver of all time was not easy. For a long time, revolters – even the best ones ever made – have become the handgun taste of the past. Now, you will find semiautomatic pistols everywhere in the bedside drawer of serious competition shooters, the leather pockets of hunters and the safe confines of everyday homeowners and more. If you are interested in collecting or in building your collection, it is important to understand the dynamics involved in choosing a good Revolver.
A Look at the Types of Revolvers on the Market Today
The first thing that you should know about revolvers is that they come in two basic types, a blowback design, which means the gun is actually an electric spring that feeds through the barrel of the gun with a single shot, and a double action design, which means that the gun fires off both a bullet and a cartridge simultaneously when you pull the trigger. Most of these designs use one particular type of bullet with a specific weight and velocity; either soft lead hollow-point, steel core, or a center hollow point bullet. The problem with any type of single action Revolvers is that they are extremely difficult to shoot individually. It is very difficult to consistently hit a target at more than 100 yards without reloading. In fact, this is why the majority of competition shooters favor double action models instead of a single action.
If you would like a pistol that is easy to handle and can be consistently accurate when shooting, then you should consider acquiring a blowback Remington. Blowback designs feature a metal or rubber sleeve surrounding the inside of the bore; the open end of this sleeve pushes a single rubber or metal piece down into the bore as the bullet is fed. This design allows for a more stable firing position and greatly minimizes misalignment issues. Although the blowback design is not particularly energy efficient, it will allow you to pump more ammunition, and it is far more stable than the other two types of revolvers. So, if you want the best single action Revolvers available on the market today, and an easy to handle and consistent shot, then you should definitely check out a blowback Remington.
