P229 Stainless Elite, paid almost $1,200.00 a couple of years ago. Very difficult to find. I love that gun, I really should shoot it more.

Fine single action

I was just able to make the trade of a lifetime
I just received the finest single action
That I have ever owned. It is a North American
Arms Eagle 45 Winchester Magnum. It
Was made in January of 1984 high polished
Finish. This pistol looks like it had never
Been fired. Going to gun range tomorrow
To play with my new toy. Anyone that knows
Any thing about these fine single actions
Please let me know.

Your most expensive handgun.

My priciest is a Wilson Combat CQB in 9mm that I got about 3 years ago. . Pricey but the quality and craftsmanship is excellent and worth it in my opinion.

I'd really like to get a Spec Ops 9mm someday from WC.

I have a 3rd gen Colt SAA from their custom shop in nickel and factory ivory grips with the Colt medallion. I bought it used some years ago for $1550. It's a safe queen and probably not my smartest gun purchase but it sure is pretty.

My most expensive handgun off the shelf was this S&W PC1911 ($1650). Most accurate .45 ACP I've ever shot. Had to put in a new sear and hammer spring to get the trigger up to 3 1/2 lbs for bullseye. It shoots way better than my ability. A 25 yard group fired bullseye style.



My most expensive handgun after custom work is my Ruger Bisley .475 Linebaugh built by Linebaugh Custom Guns ($3000!) Closest thing I've ever seen to absolute perfection.

Now, that is hard to say since I am notoriously frugal. I do not pay much for guns. I paid $425 with tax for my Python and am sure that I overpaid it some 30 years ago.

I learnt from it. I probably paid most for my SIG P210-4 but nowhere near what some internet vendors are asking.

I have or have had a couple handfuls of short guns. A **** or two in there but most were solid, reliable guns from reputable manufactures. Still the most I've paid was for my Talo MKIII 22/45. Under 3 and a half bills.

Surprisingly, these two are number 1 and 2 on the most expensive for me.



Both are 1939 38/44 Outdoorsman's with Humpback hammers and matching grips. One even has the original box.

My most expensive is my Kimber Pro CDP II. I paid almost $1100 for it and it shoots fantastic.

Just received Cylinder & Slide's 100th Anniversary 1911. Bill sure as heck didn't pluck a mass produced 1911 off the assembly line and massaged in roll marks on the slide. He did his homework. He and his gunsmiths poured an insane amount of time fabricating them from scratch.

I chose the Army designation and was allowed to choose my own serial number.

Here's the link to the story and his prototype pics. I have never seen such a beautiful work of art in my life. I thought my Les Baer was a beauty. It is. But the C&S just takes it to another level.

They came with a cartoon picture type instruction sheet, which I also have, and which is far more rare than the pistol. The pistol & instructions were packed in a waxed cardboard box, along with ten rounds and a short dowel to poke out the empty. Ten rounds was pretty optimistic... either you killed Rolf with the first shot when you screwed the pistol into his ear and pulled the trigger, or you were dead.

All are beautiful guns. But the Ruger Bisley .475 Linebaugh is the fairest in the land. Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Semi's are sexy hot but revolvers are beautiful.

Concerning the Ruger Bisley 475 Linebaugh.

Best thing about it was those Ivory Micarta grips. No visible gaps and they really soak up the recoil - full power .475 Linebaugh loads are no fun! I learned the hard way with my BFR. Forgot my PAST Recoil Glove one day and just kept shooting. D'Oh!
