I want a new NINEmm

It has to look cool and it has to be single action capable. It must be reliable and accurate, and it cant be a SW M&P or a baby eagle and it cant be over 600 dollars. Rails are good too.

CZ 75B would work, though no rail. The SP-01 has a rail.

This one.

I shot mine Saturday, and I never fail to be impressed by how fantastic it shoots. Cocked and locked capability, new one's have a rail (I prefer none, but that's me), easiest field stripping in existance, abso-friggen-lutely never jams, and beautiful to boot! Should be south of $400.

+1 on the CZ.
I got a P01 a few months ago. I have more than a few handguns and the P01 has become my favorite to shoot.I will probably be getting a CZ 75 too.
CZ is definetely worth checking out

Has to look cool? OK, I will definately go with the CZ75 SA for a lawful purchaser.

New nine

Another +1 on the Taurus. The PT 92 is a great buy almost anywhere. Mine has been 100%. It shoots great, feels good in my hand and NEVER stops. After a thousand plus rounds it is still perfect.

Yet another +1 for the CZ75B. Accurate, reliable, robust and feels natural in the hand. Parts & mags readily available.

looking cool being the primary criterion...

How about the MPA 9?:

CZ makes a number of excellent 9mms. I've got a PCR - no accessary rail but you can get the P01 if you need the rail. The PCR shoots great.

I also have a FNP9 that I really like. It's a good gun if you want a polymer frame. Very light recoil.

Why does it have to look cool? Is it going to be a prop or are you going to use it as a gun?

A used Sig 226 would be my serious recommendation.

Why not? I almost bought a Beretta just because it looked extremely cool. Nothing wrong with that IMO. I wouldn't buy a gun that is a POS just because it looks good of course. But there are a lot of pistols that work perfectly fine AND look good.

Yet another vote for a CZ. I have a new P-01, and so far its excellent.

The Baby Eagle's are in fact based on CZ 75's, not the other way around.

Just bought a P-01 this year and has your accessory rail.

Very nice.

Another +1 on the CZ. For your price range you can get either the full-size SP-01 with rails or the P-01 compact (Glock 19 size) with rails as well. Either one is a steal at the low to mid-500 price tag, tremendous quality for the money.

CZ PO1s and PCRs have a retro european look to them. Very cool. Check them out.
