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

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

Quote:
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.
