I think it all depends.

In the early 1970's I had a Browning Nomad. It was a nice accurate .22 semi auto with a very good trigger. In theory, the semi auto should be more accurate than a reviver because the one chamber integral with the barrel. And I could shoot the nomad well.

But...for whatever reason, I could shoot the Smith and Wesson model 18 revolver better. Why? I haven't a clue. Did it fit my hand better? Did I just like it better? Maybe a yes on both counts. Those old 999 Sportsman were exquisite gems of a revolver, with a feel in hand and balance that was just great. I have a friend that has one, and once a while he lets me shoot it on a range trip. Great gun!!!!

Most likely a combination of how it feels in your hand, balance of the gun, and just pure love for it, you shoot it better. For whatever reason, it works better for you.

Don't over do it, just enough will do.

I have a H&R 686 which shoots well but not as good as my Ruger MKII or B-I-L's S&W 17. But, for the buck it shoots very well. Trigger is good but not great. For me I think the sights are more of the problem than the inherent accuracy of that revolver.

For a price point firearm H&R can also do some nice case coloring.

The list is good if allowed several other good guns have been mentioned and I would add the Dan Wesson 22 revolver it was a tack driver. The most accurate I have shot out the box was a Ruger mk2 govt target. But others were very close. The past had some really great guns no doubt but today's guns are good also.
The older I get the more I like the 22 lr pistol or revolver.
