Yup, and to a lot of folks as well, however, there's a H-U-G-E bunch of folks who don't feel that way. And it shouldn't be too hard to imagine...
A lot of folks choose a slow, old-tech single action because it's nostalgic. You apparently don't want "full" nostalgia. (I don't, either) Others do.
That's why old model Ruger single actions often go for a premium in their unaltered condition.
Attention Brass rats and other reloaders: I really need .327 Federal Magnum brass, no lot size too small. Tell me what caliber you need and I'll see what I have to swap. PM me and we'll discuss.
