GUN TESTS GRADE: B+
The Security Six had good accuracy with user-friendly sights; recoil was mild due to its bulk, which also made it less suitable as a concealed-carry choice.

The Ruger has large sights that made aiming easier, but they also made the revolver bulky in terms of overall height.
Though the grip was smaller, recoil was still manageable. We liked shooting the Ruger.
The rear of cylinder is not inset like the Colt; empties ejected freely using gravity.
