Here is the way I and many others look at it.
Approach it from a standpoint of you getting the action and then losing favor with it or deciding to go smaller or larger..... In other words which will bring the best resale value from standpoint of demand when you decide to sell it. I believe that you would find the BAT to be the one that would command the highest resale value.
With that being said, there is a reason why a lot of folks are focusing on the BAT actions and that is because they work well and the folks are easy to work with. Also, it is easy to get additional bolts to use for smaller sized cases.
If the burglars robbed me of all my Hall Express actions, I would replace them with new BATS since Alan Hall does not make the Express anymore...... My second choice would be Jerry Stiller's actions....... However, if you could find some of the Nesika Bay actions that were made in the earlier years before they moved, those would be a nice one as well. I would stay away from the current Nesika actions.......
