I really like the look of stainless steel Sigs and 1911s. I hope to get a 1911 someday. Here's a picture of a stainless p226 in .40 that I picked up recently.

The Colt Python .357 Magnum with the 6" barrel is very cool to me.

Ok, DasGuy, you're not the only one with 'different' ideas about beauty:



1973 Model 38. I think it's gorgeous!

Dear happytrails,

Didn't know you sold it. Hope I didn't bring up any bad memories.

In regards to the DP-51, they are not sold in the U.S. however they sell very well here in Guatemala. Bodyguards, citizens, and assassins tend to like them. If it really caught your eye, you can now buy its Gen3 version in the U.S. from a company called Lionheart Industries located out of Seattle, WA, the weapon's name is now the LH9. The LH9 has some updated features over the DP-51 and sadly a very updated price. Nevertheless, the LH9 continues to carry that same level of quality as its Gen2 & 1.

Best regards,
D. Idaho

Just about any SA out there . A nice SA just raises goose bumps.... A smith or a slab sides just doesn't hack hack it.... .

I like nickel and think a 5" N frame S&W is perfectly balanced.





I agree on the SAA.

I personally think the Remington 1875 is just a hair prettier than the Colt SAA. I'm saving my pennies to buy a Uberti '75 someday.



Unless that Colt happens to be wearing 1860 Army grips.
I'll never understand why Colt went with the Navy grip for the SAA, even though my small hands fit it just fine.
It just gives the gun the proportions of a cartoon character - giant head and a tiny body. IMO a 7.5" SAA with Army grips would be the epitome of beauty.

I love the old S&W pistols. This is a M-36 Chief Special that hangs out in my safe.

The various p-series sig sauer's. I've always thought they were great looking pistols.
The stainless Beretta 96 has always been a favorite of mine as well.

I find there's just a timeless quality to a single action revolver, it's simple yet beautiful. A 1911 is gorgeous too, and Sig can make one fine looking weapon.

On a more tactical/utility side of things, I find Glocks to be nice looking guns. I, like many, used to think they were hideous, but they grow on you and you begin to like them...a lot!

re:Best looking handguns?

The Uber-Geek in me says SandW TRR8 with dot sight and light under barrel.

The 'Go where no one goes' in me likes SandW Outdoorsman in four inch.

The veteran in me screams SandW Model 15..

The former 'gov't friend of Leroy Jethro Gibbs' says Browning Hi Power.

Lastly, being an old geezer in today's world, going Grey Man,
Taurus 850CIA.
