SA comparisons: SRHs vs SBHs

I like the look of the SA revolvers that are out there, but if I imagine suddenly having the €1100 I'd need to buy one of the big Rugers, I find myself thinking "why would I limit myself to an SAO revolver?"

I know they are mechanically simpler, with a frame that is beefier by virtue of not having to accommodate a swing out cylinder, but the build of the Redhawks hardly makes them susceptible to failure.

A result of this is the SBH is slower to reload.

So, this left me with the trigger action. My Redhawk SA action is OK. Better than my semis but not as light as my little .38.

So how does an SBH SA trigger action compare to its DA/SA stable partners?
Is it any better?
When the right to effective self-defence is denied, that right to self-defence which remains is essentially symbolic.

Karma. Another word for revolver: because what goes around, comes around!
