    What do you think are the prettiest pistols? My favourite looks-wise is the 1911 but other real beauties are the Ruger-Luger-Nambu, HS Supermatics, Colt Woodsman-Targetsman-Huntsman, Browning Buck Mark and HP, 9 mm Berettas, SA Bobcat-Sig Sauer P230 SL, Llamas, Taurus, Ruger 90s, Walther P-38, PPK, and TPH, and the Explorer. The unsightly ones are most of the single-shots which aren't very practical anyways.

    Here's one single shot that's not ugly!

    Hard to beat any pistol in Royal Blue, IMO.

    High Standard Supermatics indeed.
    I'll have to cast another vote to Browning Medalists of which I do not own.

    The OP was asking about pretty pistols. Yours does not fit because it is absolutely stunning, rondog. Please post more pics of this gun because I would like to make it my wallpaper, with your permission of course.

    Rondog, I believe you have unintentionally hijacked this post. Words cannot describe the beauty of that finish. How much time goes in to buffing that sucker after your done handling that one?

    Uh, sorry all, that's not my pistol, just a photo I saved from another post on another site. I can't recall the owner's name, but I hope he doesn't mind me posting these photos.

    AFAIK, that's a Colt WWI repro, the 1st gen. WMK model in Carbonia Blue. It was sent to the Colt Custom Shop for polishing and the Royal Blue finish. That's all I really "know", but I do have more photos. I don't want to hijack the thread, but if the OP wants to see them, I guess y'all could peek over his shoulder.

    Oh, I do have this lovely Rock Island GI that I had polished and blued locally, after I put on all the Tactical parts. It's a sweetheart! I've really got to take some more, better photos of it. It really is nicer than the photos I have reflect. Treo just got to see it yesterday, ask him.

    I like the one in rondogs original post, and the walther P99s are nice IMO. Any high grade 1911 (even if they are a few thousand $ too much) looks nice too.

    Some S&W model 41s are beautiful guns

    FWIW, I've always been very partial to the older S&W and Colt revolvers with that deep blue finish. Always thought those were the prettiest, until I discovered 1911's anyway.

    When it comes to pure aesthetics my vote goes to the Remington XP100 in a custom stock.
    Simply gorgeous!


    If practicality is brought into the equation the my vote goes to a Belgian Browning.
