I've had both, they both have their +/-'s. Nelsons have a much longer lever throw, but they can be smooth. What I dont like is that the barrel is below the feed tube on them, I like to have my sights right on the barrel, not on a feed tube above the barrel. Also sheridan levers can be tuned to be SUPER smooth..but I don't like the loading, aka tilt back and twist.
