Our Assessment: Smith & Wesson and Colt may have been around longer than Ruger, but that doesn’t mean they make better revolvers. Here is one of the best carry double action revolvers ever made. Its compact size makes it manageable and its .357 chambering makes it powerful. With the addition of the laser grips and the inherent build quality of a Ruger… here is that stainless Carry .357 Mag. you've always wanted.
