I'm a smith fan, my 8-3/8" model 57 is probably my favorite with a tuned trigger that rivals my match rifles when shot single action. I also shoot a model 10V occasionally, more for fun and just at the dueling tree. Have a gp100 that's OK, had a black Hawk and it was nice, but I've moved up to the Magnum Research BFR in 460 for hunting. Bottom line is how they feel and how well you can shoot them. I think a 657 4" is next for me though, can load down to 357 power charges or load up to 44 power. Love the 41.
