    OK, Let's see 'em. Post your top 5 grail guns with photos if possible. One each Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun and 2 others of any kind. These should be guns you really want but, for now, have no plans to buy.

    Grail gun S&W model 4006.

    Then I got it and found out it was just another gun. It didn't make my life immeasurably better and I quit having grail guns after that

    One was a Chaffee-Reese. And I just bought one in immaculate condition.

    Past that, maybe a true H&H double in any cartridge from 375 H&H on up.

    Threads like these are dangerous, they sometimes give you ideas that may turn out costly later on.
    In any case, my current list of hard to find grail guns would be something like...

    Bren Ten
    Colt Diamondback, .22, 6", nickel finish
    MC111/MTS111 sidelock (my wife's already got one... ouch)
    JaTiMatic
    Lahti L-39

    Sorry, no pics at hand but they all google easily if they don't sound familiar.

    As my income reached the level of affording the guns that I thought I really wanted, I realized the guns I have work amazingly well.
    A mini sharps in 357 max would be the closest to a Grail gun.

    A Rem 1100 in 28 ga. and a matching 16 ga.

    A Ruger GP 100 7 shot 5” in .327... and a 5.5” ss 7 shot Bisley in.327.

    I’d like to have a left handed Weatherby (not Howa) in 257 WM.
    A S&W registered magnum with the original card and box would be nice.
    S&W 1026, 1046 and 1066 (to complete the set)

    I’m sure I will think of something else.

    Right around $2000, some higher. The pic I used is dolled up with case hardening, I just want a blued/walnut rifle.

    I guess a Dan Wesson 445 Super Mag should be on my list too.

    Impact Precision in 6 Creedmoor. I have no need for a competition gun, but that doesn't mean the desire isn't there.

    Well, there are a few...
    S&W Registered Magnum
    S&W .44 triple lock
    Colt SAA (the earlier the better, but even a late generation would suffice)
    Colt Anaconda
    AMT Automag
    Lahti L35
    Mauser Broomhandle
    ZM Walther PPK
    Finnish M39 Mosin-Nagant (probably the most affordable of my grail guns, so I could actually swing this one)
    Remington Model 8 or 81 (again, these aren't hard to find, or real expensive)
    A Drilling
    And my dad's old S&W model 19 (I have a couple 19's, but I'd like to find dad's. It had a few custom-ordered changes so it's kind of distinctive).
