Default Volcano Sniper

I was just curious as to which prefix best suits the Volcano. I love my 17k damage Barking Volcano but was wondering if there are better variations of it. If so what is the highest damage you guys have come across and what prefix did it have. Thanks guys.

People prefer the Volcano with a Gentleman's prefix as this boosts its critical hit damage significantly.

I got a 16K gentlemans and a 18K fashionable? I think the gentlemans increased crit is nice. Fashionable not sure what it does... maybe better elemental chance.

I have a Banbury Volcano that I prefer because it shoots faster than my other two. I think that's what it's called.

Fashionable-- +stability

Gentleman's is my preferred over the other variants. I found this quite awhile ago and even though I've found others I still come back to this one for softening up the bandits before swapping out with another elemental sniper for the kill.

Do you know if there is a thread or a good link that explains all weapon prefixes?

I found the above list on the Borderlands Wiki:

http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Maliwan


They have ones listed for Dahl, Hyperion, and Maliwan, but not for Torgue, Jakobs, Vladof, or Bandit. The ones listed aren't necessarily accurate either (for instance, a Proactive Hyperion SMG has +firerate, not +bullet speed).

Actually, they have, i think:
