What do you mean by saying flat gate? Is it better?

The Ruger Single Six had a flat loading gate for it's first four years of life, from 1953 to 1957. After that they went to the round gate. About 60,000 of the flat gates were made. They have become collectible, and are sort of hard to find. It's been on my want list for a while.
