Just about any O/U with a silver or chrome plated, engraved, receiver.

When I first saw one of these,the first thing that came to my mind was the word,Cool.
Your looking at a FN F2000 with an undermounted 40mm Grenade Launcher.
This thing looks like a Steyr Aug on steroids..:D

I'd have to say the coolist looking pistol I've seen is my dad's lightweight commander. there's something cool about a pistol where alll of the bluing and anodizing has worn off the front half of the frame and slide.
coolest rifle would have to be my dad's m-14. it's got a really cool Leaf pattern camo paint job, that's also kinda worn off.
coolest shotgun would have to be my mossberg, because it fits.

Krautgunner, I've got you covered.:D
Gewehr98's Enfield Sniper rifle is a gun I would be honored to have in my collection and I can't remember who posts the pic of two lovely Ruger No 1s but they're very nice as well.
Coolest? For the futuristic stuff, the Blaser R93 and the Whitefeather M-25 are both pretty neat.

These were pistols designed by Smoking Hole Pistol Design. I think they were down in Simi Valley, California. I don't think they're around anymore. I think they were building up pistols using SVI/STI lower and then milling uppers. Here's some more eye candy.
I traded it off for a Swedish AG-42B Ljungman. I already miss it. One last look at the old girl when it was still mine:
Here's another view of the alloy space rifle stock:
He hadn't put the barrel in it yet, just the Nesika Bay action.

Gewehr98, does that shiny beast have a name? :D

It's a project of a machine shop that specializes in intricate machining jobs. The guy will do one for anybody who waves enough cash under his nose. I'm sure it ain't cheap, considering that the Nesika Bay actions go for between $900-$1400. But I do want one, with either a Krieger or Obermeyer barrel. It's nice to want things, isn't it? :D
