Personally, I think the Starr Revolver is uglier. Alas...beauty (and ugliness) is in the eye of the beholder.

Many firearms of all types were disliked for many reasons. Some valid and a lot of others not valid. The usage of improper sized ammo was not the firearms fault. Lack of training an other reason. Lack of proper cleaning yet an other not the firearms fault.
If I had to pick an awkward revolver it would be the Pettengill simply due to it's handle size, shape and front end weight creating lack of balance. Even a medium sized hand would find it uncomfortable to hold and shoot.
