depends on the usage of the revolver and what your budget is.

how much experiance do you have with revolvers, and what calibers?

because depending on what you are wanting it for, would be helpful in making suggestions for something suited to your particular needs.

For general purpose use, a Ruger GP-100 is hard to beat.

It has a rock solid action and, while it is possible to destroy one, it can take abuse that would damage or disable most other designs. It's not lightweight, but it wasn't designed to be.

The Super Redhawk is an industrial grade .44 Magnum. Ruger has other chamberings for the Super Redhawk platform, but most Academy, Wal-Mart, and online ammunition sales brokers have .38 Special, .357 Magnum, .44 Special, and .44 Magnum ammunition. If you decide to get a revolver in an uncommon caliber, expect premium ammunition prices and difficulty obtaining ammunition at times.

S&W makes a variety of concealable, compact, space-age revolvers that employ exotic materials to reduce weight. My experience with these is that while they are definitely easier to carry, they're not much fun to shoot for any extended length of time. S&W also makes working guns with 7 or 8 shot capacity. All that I have shot were very nice, smooth operating, well-made guns.

As stated by others above, without more info as to the primary use for this gun, it's difficult to make a meaningful recommendation; however, in my opinion, the best general purpose, all around most useful handgun a person can own is a good quality .357 magnum with a 4" barrel. I am partial to Smith and Rugers.

S&W or Ruger .357. Whichever one floats your boat.

Or a nice single action .22 if you are just blowing holes in paper.

How about some help.
Budget?
Intended use?
Single action or double action?
Caliber?
Personal biases?

I'm buying a car...

I would go with the 357 mag for all around protection, plus you can also shoot 38 special in practice.

Like some others posted I like the Ruger GP100.
