Do revolvers have any downside's (besides capacity)?

    They're more complicated mechanisms and if the timing gets fucked up on a revolver it can be a big issue.

      One supposed plus is that they can't be pushed out of battery, but friction on the cylinder can prevent them from firing all the same. The hot gas blasting out of the cylinder gap can also be a liability in CQC, especially with magnums. Their overall length is also usually an inch or two longer than an equivalent auto, severely hampering concealability.

      Revolver DAs are supposed to be pulled with the first joint rather than between it and the pad like most lighter triggers. Also stop being a gay and learn how to cock the hammer between shots, or better yet, thumbing and fanning.

      reloading.
      a semi auto pistol can be have a mag swapped while you've only loaded half a cylinder.

      Get a speedloader. Even without one, it's even easier to load 3 or 4 bullets at once than individually with practice.

        Nobody ever does this, and there isn't really any need anyway. Revolver DA triggers are quite heavy but there is zero slop, so with any practice at all you can stage the trigger. I think ruger DA wheelgun triggers are better than glock triggers, I own and shoot both.
        >fanning
        Please no, that is not a thing with DA revolvers. You will wreck your poor gun something fierce and it doesn't give you any kind of advantage over just pulling the damn trigger.

    They're just a less efficient design almost anyway you slice it. Each round is carried in its own steel chamber. Energy escapes out the cylinder gap rather than accelerating the bullet. The placement and dimensions of the cylinder typically make them wider and longer than a comparable semi-auto. The revolving cylinder calls for complicated and expensive to manufacture parts. Human input is required return to firing position. The frame is subjected to tremendous force so it also has to be steel. They are more difficult to reload. They are usually more difficult to disassemble and clean.

    That's not to say they're totally bereft of benefits. They are, by necessity, built more robustly. They tend to be more accurate than most semi-autos with a tilting barrel. They can have infinitely long barrels. They cannot be knocked out of battery as easily. They don't spray brass everywhere. They don't have slide bite. They can handle various bullet types, powder loads, and even cartridge sizes with no issue.

    Still, when you tally the pros and the cons the Browning tilting barrel design just mogs it for most purposes.

      There are a number of factual inaccuracies in your post including but not limited to the fact that there are aluminum frame revolvers made by major revolver mfgs including s&w

          Aluminum frame, 14 oz, withstands full power cartridges reasonably well.

            It's steel framed for 357 and 9mm.

              Smith makes a scandium alloy frame for 357 mag snub with an 8 shot capacity but it costs like 1500 last I checked

              Anyway, steel is good enough for me

                Either way, the frame is subject to a lot of stress, so you can't use polymer, and usually require steel.

            Aluminum frames are garbage when it comes to recoil mitigation. If you want to carry a snubby, get a solid steel frame.

    Pancreas Thief is a dumb gay moron who will never amount to anything beyond working a gun counter and posting his retarded opinions as gospel. Kys.
    But to answer your question:
    >average shooter will experience slower reload times
    >DA triggers filter out women and twinks
    >anything that isn't. 38 or .357 will, again, filter out women and twinks
    >large exposed hammer could potentially, although improbably, get caught on something or have something block it

    But if you want to be a NAVYRANGERSNIPERSEALDELTAMARINEOPERATOR you cannot use them, they are not cool. You don’t get your supertacticool frame mounted RDS and taclights for your extrashort splits and you cannot reload as fast in the open as a stationary target because that is what you have practiced a gazillion times on the range. Also at SD distances, the trigger pull totally makes a difference because the adrenaline rush certainly doesn’t.

    It does not matter what kind of gun you carry as long as you can hit stuff at 15 meters with it.
