    I have posted these two before, 3” & 4” . No adjustable sights, but reload for some adjustment.
    Favorites for sure in the two calibers.

    I know you all will call me on it if I am wrong but concerning single actions vs. double actions in these larger calibers with significant recoil :

    What about muzzle flip?.............all other things being equal, will a single not tend to have more "flip" than the double..........I notice that in these rugers. the double actions come right back at me........the single actions come back at me with more muzzle flip- But I shoot long barrels: 6 inch and 10 inch barrels on .44 and .45 calibers..........should you not expect more flip in a single action?

    Jus' checkin'...................or am I imagining things?

    "All other things being equal" they shouldn't. Weight, barrel length, ammo, etc. Hard to get an exact match for reference.
    Maybe the fact that most single a actions have smooth wood grips and a lot of DA have rubber or offered with checkering?
    A lot of people say birdshead grips "rotate" into their hand, which essentially means the muzzle rises a little more. But many find this is a benefit because of either actual or perceived recoil reduction and it "sets it up" for easier next hammer draw.

    Yep, I am imagining it. I have a 45-70 single action on a superblackhawk frame. 10 inch barrel. It had the "flip". But I bet it is not the action so much as the increase in energy. So I had it magna ported. Boy did that help!.............. long story

    I got off topic a bit, but I was curious.........:33:
