They are all right though. All weapons, if built properly, are the "best dps." What makes it the best is knowing which abilities to use with which passives that boost the damage of those abilities AND lastly, your ability to maintain a rotation.
Example: I use Pistol/Hammer for DPS and I am keeping neck and neck with an Elemental/AR -- possibly maybe even higher than him because there's a bug with Pistols where your Double Up damage (which is being done) is not showing in the logs thus I am "losing" DPS because it's not recorded on the meters.
Firstly, go to the skill page. Read each bonus each weapon has. Double Up, Explosive Rounds, Offer Blood, etc. See what you think would be very fun to use.
Next, read each and every ability. Then passives. Now make a build. Test it. Like it? keep it. Don't like it? Change it. Rinse. Repeat.
