Actually I have been thinking of getting an old Beretta M1934 in .380 and having it refinished as I think it could come out stunning.

My wife bought me this for my 45th birthday last year. She said, "You only turn 45 once!"



I'd say it's the best-looking gun I own...

Always wanted a good looking 45 cal Vaquero, finally found one with no writing on the side of the barrel. Snapped it up. And bonus, it shoots almost as good as it looks. First 6 shots pictured below.

I'll parrot a few folks' opinions,,,

These aren't necessarily the prettiest guns out their,,,
But they are definitely my favorites for aesthetics.

Semi-auto = Beretta Cheetah
Modern Revolver = 4" S&W K-frame pencil barrel
Older Revolver = 1860 Colt.

The 1860 Army as well as the 1851 Navy are beautiful handguns.

So are Single Action Army's and most of Smith and Wesson's blued revolvers.

Semi-autos - H&K USP series (except Elite maybe).
Revolvers - S&W 686 (long barrels).

For semis I'm always partial to Hi Powers and 1911's, CZ's would be third.

For wheel guns I like SAA's, Smith model 19's and the old 1851/60 Navy/Army style.

Once saw on the internet a gun called the Wolverine, looks like a space gun from the '50s, no really it does.

If someone has a photo handy by chance please upload.

I love my Glock, looks don't matter much to me, I'm revolver guy.

For now of all my revolvers, I like looking at my S&W 327 M&P most, not to mention what I paid for it, but......My S&W 627 V-Comp comes in a close second, but,.............size matters........Ohhh, I forgot my Ruger Redhawk blued 5.5" .44............................

happytrails-

Beholder nothing! That stainless SW5906 is such a beautiful weapon. Missed my chance on grabbing one, so when I found myself in the market for a good 9mm I turned to the DP-51 since it was designed around the 5906.

Have a great day.

That's the first time I have heard of a Daewoo. Looks interesting. I looked around the web and found a few that were used and already sold. Mostly good reviews. Are they still in production and if so who sells them? every time I think about it I mentally kick myself in the butt for selling that 659. I could shoot within an inch or two of a stick stuck in the ground at 100 yards with the one I had.
