Default Strongest DA

What is the consensus of strongest built DA revolver of the major brands. I think I would have to say,in this order.

1: Ruger

2: S&W

3: Colt

Feel free to disagree.

I concur.

Personally think Dan Wesson should be at the front of that list. But there is room for discussion based (in part) on frame size.

And another one for the DW.

Now another one to consider is the Korth from Germany.

Agree with Dan on the Korth. I think those were made of leftover armor plate from German Panzers. Tough.

Ruger does not have a revolver that will handle the 500 or the 480 Limbough. I doubt if I spelled that right. The Ruger 480 is a downloaded version of the 480 L and has pushed the Redhawk to its max. So S&W has it over the Ruger on your list. There are other revolvers out there that are stronger but I stayed to your list.
