The revolver design is less technologically advanced.
That doesn't translate into inferiority, however.

Which one is faster and easier to reload?
With training and practice, that difference becomes quite meager and sometimes nonexistent.

Which uses more advanced materials?
Aluminum and polymers are also used extensively with modern revolvers. In fact, I can't think of an alloy or material used for automatics that isn't used for some examples. Furthermore, a reliance on steel isn't a hindrance.

Which has a simpler method of operation (I'll give you a hint, it's not a revolver despite perceptions to the contrary).
I must confess to some difficulty understanding this one. I've never found an automatic that has a simpler manual of arms, particularly when it comes to loading and unloading.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
