i already have a black handgun, now i want to buy a 9mm (or .380) beauty for looks and play, of course it has to shoot well, but very important i want a handgun that's beautiful

i like the cz 75b high polished stainless steel (i like PCR too but they only make black), that's my prime candidate, but anything shiny SS or chrome i'd like to hear about it. also i have limited budget cant go over 1k, ideally around $500 :P

thanks!

I am currently on the hunt for a nice 3rd Generation Smith and Wesson in SS such as the 5906. For $500 you should be able to find one in tip top shape and then with some nice wood grips you can really have a beautiful looking weapon in my opinion.

Something like this would be a dream for me...

P.S. - It's stainless so you can always get a polish job done to bring out the shine!

S&W 952 or Sig 210.

Short of that, the 5906 is a great gun.

I'd say, if you want something "beautiful", CZ 75 or variants (my personal liking is the SP01 Shadow), or Beretta 92.

You just might be able to get a nice, older Browning HP for that.

I think these two are pretty nice looking: SIG 229 and Witness Elite Match

Well, I'm a 1911 guy so I picked up a Springfield EMP in 9mm, though it may stretch your budget a bit. (Picture from google images.)

Ask and you shall receive . . . right here is a LNIB polished stainless CZ-75B for sale right where you wanted to be price wise:

I'd say the pick you started with, beautiful gun and will shot as good as it looks. Or get a cz 75b and have it hard chromed like this guy did to his sp-01.

I suggest checking out the Sig P210 Legend. It's awfully pricy, but what a great looking gun. Also, Browning HiPower, 9mm 1911s, and EAA K2s.

+1 on the Witness Match... VERY beautiful gun. All Sigs are beautiful, too, imo.

I'd agree with the P226. SIG makes several 226 models that are gorgeous IMO. The P226 Elite Stainless and P226 Equinox are my favorites; and you know they're excellent performers to boot.

Short of the 226 (and IMHO, it would be short), the CZ75B would make a great runner-up.

A Beretta 84 is a pretty darned smmoth and fancy gun, too ...

Buy a new Browning Hi Power in blue, and add some Hogue wood grips:

I went with an epoxy finish for mine because of my high humidity environment, but the blued versions are just downright beautiful. The newest Hi Powers are probably some of the best ever made.

I vote for the Witness Elite Match too. I just got back from the range with it and it was, as always, a tack driver. That's the gun you pull out when you want to embarrass the guy shooting next to you. At ten yards the guy next to me shooting his plastic 9mm was shooting dinner plate sized groups off hand at ten yards. My Match was shooting silver dollar sized ragged holes off hand. I swear if you do your part you can't miss. And if you don't do your part it will do it for you. And this awesome gun is in your price range too! :D

Another vote for the BHP. I cannot tell you how happy I am with mine and the FEG Copy I have.

HK P7. I'm not a fan of the nickle finished ones, but that might work if you really want it shiny. Personally I think the blued looks excellent.

What, no love for the Beretta 92FS Inox ? Put some stunning wood grips on this baby and the WOW factor is there IMO.

I gotta tell ya though, everything posted here so far is a great choice.

I have a gun mag that has an article on the CZ you posted and ever since i read it I thought that was one of the nicest looking pistols I've seen. There are a quite a few other good looking 9's though. One off the top of my head is one of the kimbers.

Not ugly. I've always thought there was a certain elegance to their businesslike simplicity.

ummm... no.:cool:

My Glock 17 IS beautiful. And the fact that I have over 14,000 rounds through it without incident makes it even more beautiful.

You know what's most beautiful (beautifulist?) about it...what I can do with it at 10 yards rapid fire.

Beretta 92 Inox or in two-tone. Almost too pretty to shoot... almost.

Well we do know that everything going on on this site is all opinion and in my opinion glocks are definitely ugly. +1 for the stainless and two tone sigs, especially with the wood grips, those are truly beautiful in my opinion.

May 16, 2012, 11:13 PM
well thanks all who replied, appreciate all the input

about Beretta 92FS Inox, on their official website one comment about the sights suck, i am not sure about it

the sig 226 stainless is like 43oz? that's a monster lol

in fact i have small hands, so if i have a choice i would like cz 75 PCR, but they only make it black, chrome it maybe an option but its a hassle, not as durable as stainless, and probably cost a lot :(

Triplec
May 17, 2012, 12:22 AM
Anything full size in stainless is going to weigh a ton, a sig 229 is a little smaller package than the 226 and just a bit bigger than the PCR. I'd go with the pcr if you're set on it that much. I've seen cz 75 compacts in stainless, you should check out that option.

I also have small hands and as such the Browning Hi-Power is a great choice for the best feel and balance of high capacity 9mm pistols.
