    Lowest FELT recoil would be a single action revolver, highest felt recoil would be a double action revolver. One of the most pleasant revolvers I ever fired was a Single action Ruger .44 Mag with 10 inch barrel. One of the most unpleasant was a S&W Model 15 double action revolver in .357 Mag.
    The grip design of the single action allows the revolver to rotate up, which eliminates most of the felt recoil.
