I'd go with the 1860 Army.

Hard to top that IMO.

Snub357,

Had to go check the safe and see if my M57 is still in there.

One of my favs. and shoots like a dream.

Anyways, have really enjoyed this thread and looking at all this artwork.

I was born into a P08 home, so naturally I love them most:



But then I developed a sweet tooth for (Target) Masterpieces:



As far as Pythons go, I like to be contrarian, and prefer six-inch ones with patridge front sight (sorry, can't find a decent picture):



And you always have to wonder how the good people at Walther managed to make a pocket pistol so beautiful:



My fifth choice would be the Mauser 1896, but I don't have one... yet. The most purposeful looking gun in my book.

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, & seems like some are just posting pics of guns they own...

however the Schofield has a nice classic look, & something that appeals to me more than most others... I always loved the classic Colt blue, but the revolvers them selves never did much more than any other revolver for me ( I know I'm in the minority here though )...always loved the Freedom Arms revolvers, but their looks don't do anything for me ( good thing they shoot better than they look... just my opinion ) props to ARROND for the classy pics of his S&W...

I have alot of revolvers ( this is the revolver forum, for all those that posted semi pics ), love "most" but I guess my favorite "looking" ones are my lil S&W model 1.5 & my newer Ruger Vaquero Montado's that I use for CAS, & my custom Ruger birdshead snubbie... none of which are good pics ( guns look better in person )

Snub357, how'd I miss the 65LS? I guess because mine sports uglier (but effective) Pachs. Also Magnumwheelman, +1 on the Montado/Sheriff, I admire mine a lot, and your birdshead is great. My dream version of a beautiful birdshead would be a USFA Double Eagle. Alas, not mine.

I do like the case color, & the hammer shape / style is nice... mine is an EDC gun, so I was happy with the easy care polished stainless finish... nicest thing for the feel was the checkered buffalo horn grips... the plastic ones I started with just had no soul... now the gun has "that feel" in the hand

I think one of the best looking revolvers of all time is the Colt 1851 navy.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For me it's the classics.

In order from most to least :

Colt SAA
Ruger Single Actions
1860 Army
1858 Remington
1911
.... lastly there are these
S&W revolvers
Most all other DA revolvers
All other semi-autos slab sides definitely last
