Photo thread: Your Crown Jewel?

Which Rifle and Handgun do you consider to be the crown jewel, the Mac daddy, the prize of your collection?

I'll start, mine are nothing exceptional but nothing to scoff at either.

M1A Scout Squad Synthetic


Colt Rail Gun

My Winchester SXP. But I'd say it's just because that's all I got for now so it's the crown jewel by default.

Nice! It's easy to appreciate a steel and wood gun with all the plastic flying around these days. I've contemplated buying a wood stock for my M1A but I'd be heartbroken if I dinged it while hunting.

My Marlin model 25N .22LR rifle. My dad got me this rifle as my first gun for Christmas some time ago.

Mine is my S&W Model 14-2 SAO. I have more expensive and rarer guns, but this one is my favorite cause it is just so accurate and,(IMHO) so dang cool.

Mine is a Coonan Classic for the hand gun and a Marlin 45-70 with a silencer for the rifle!
