As the number of varying preferences offered here would seem to indicate; that's probably why Colt made the Single Action Army in different barrel lengths! People are different, what works and feels good to one person doesn't necessarily mean it works for others.

Aesthetically, my preference is the 4 3/4 inch barrel Single Action and they dominate my small collection. However, for shooting, I much prefer the sight radius and handling of a 5 1/2 inch barrel Single Action; it just works for me! My current shooter is a 1901 38-40 with a 5 1/2 inch barrel.

Consider the responses to your thread, but ultimately you'll need to figure out what works best for you!
