In an auto pistol, I've always done better with a 1911...both for slow fire and at speed.
In a revolver, it's a Smith M19 or M66 with a 4" bbl. Grips make a difference here and those Hogue finger groove ones are the ticket. Fugly, yep but in DA and SA, their the best for me. Rod

Toss up between my S&W 41 and my Python with my Gen 1 17 coming in hot on their heels. All three had many, many rounds through them before they came to me, so they’re as worn-in and mechanically smooth as one would want. Not collector museum pieces, but legit shooters, and boy do they shoot.
Amazingly enough a Smith model 28 Highway Patrolman. I have owned (and own) lots of different pistols, mostly automatics. I have been shooting automatics since I was ten years old. Then about 10 years ago I got a 4" M28 and went to the range with a friend of mine out in 29. Six 158gr SWC loaded into my first cylinder. All fired double action. All went into a cloverleaf at 10 yards. I literally looked at the pistol, looked at the target, and looked at my buddy. He said "well I think you have found your gun".
I shoot that gun better than ANYTHING I own, revolver, auto, whatever. Whether it's loaded with 38's or 357's it does not matter.
