The Taurus had the best sight picture due to the orange fiber-optic tube. To our dismay, it came loose during testing.
Note the detent ball (arrow) in the crane; it locks up the frame.
The case closest to the grip would get hung up on the grip, requiring the user to rotate the cylinder to clear the grip and extract the case.
The cylinder latch forms the bottom part of the recoil shield and is flush with the top, so it took extra effort to manipulate the latch. Some may see this as nitpicking, but anything that slows reloads is worth noting.
