Yep! Never had a fail to feed, eject or fire. My bed buddy will always be a revolver with laser sites, to keep my Remington 870, 12 ga. pump company.

I have had jams with HK's expensive 1911'S,Sig Sauers. But the only other thing i can think of never jamming is my S&W 686 .357magnum Revolver Now i know why my Grandfather preffered Wheel Guns.
Your grandfather was a smart man. That's what I bet my life on. Either a seven shot 686 or a six shot model 66.

Revolvers are less likely to have function problems, but they are more sensitive to mechanical problems in the long run IMO. They are just dependent on so many tiny parts working precisely together, that a failure in any one of them results in a poorly- or non-functioning gun. Auts seem more "mechanically macroscopic" in that small amounts of wear in precision parts rarely degrades their function, except possibly in the accuracy department.

Yeah, he's seeing the mirror reflection of light as stainless steel... I didn't see it that way until I read his post and couldn't figure out what he was talking about.

People have owned and shot revolvers for over a hundred years without anything ever wearing out or failing.

The long-term failure rate for autos is significantly higher than for revolvers... if the auto isn't in perfect working order or if it's dirty, it likely isn't working.

You could pick up a revolver out of a mud puddle and probably shoot it just fine.

I had a primer back out on a factory round on a Ruger Redhawk. Locked it up tight. It was after the 3rd shot. If you get a little bit of debris behind the star on a reload, the cylinder wont close. It does not take much. The military went to the 1911 because revolvers were not as reliable as the autos in the dirty combat zone.

Actually if you drop a revolver in the mud you generally can get it to malfunction quite regularly. If you drop an auto in the mud, generally they still work great. At least a good quality auto, anyways, as a poor quality automatic will usually malfunction anyway.
