And a Smith model 29, early model, pinned & recessed, 6.5-inch barrel.
Colt 1911 in Carbonia Blue
Radom ViZ p.35
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, my grandfather had the ugliest revolver ever produced, an H&R 9 shot .22 that I lost the coin toss and ended up inheriting. Just seeing it in the gun cabinet gave me heartburn... Until about a year ago when my youngest went out with his Dad and I and we let him shoot the beast. On his third shot the boiler plate *DINGED* and LR looked at hubby with an expression of joy saying "I hit it Dad!" That old revolver is now more beautiful to me than the most expensive top of the line weapon in existence.
Revolver: 1860 Army.
Semi: Colt's Pocket Hammerless, be they the 1903 or 1908 variant.
Pistols are tougher to choose from. I like the shape, feel, and appearance of the basic 1911, like my Colt 1991A1, which is black anodized. No fancy sights and just the right amount of curves and planes.
Browning HP (Want)
Korth with Colt Python as second.
Revolver is a tough one... Squirming... Ok.... SW 69. Can be had NIB with classic S&W lines. 1st pick would have been the Python but, if you find one NIB it falls on the realm of exclusive custom.
Since All 1911s look alike to me and trend towards custom the Auto choice is easy. Browning HP.
Colt 1861 Navy
Colt Single Action Army (5.5" nickel plated with ivory grips)
Colt Python (6" barrel)
Colt 1911 pre-war commercial
Browning Hi Power (blued, fixed sights)
Auto: Luger - "Navy" version.
The one Robar uses to advertise their NP3 is gorgeous:
For revolver, easily the Colt Python.
Auto - Jericho 941
Pocket Pistol - either the Colt m1903 or the Baby Browning.
for a single action Revolver - Ruger Vaquero 44 mag stainless 5.5"
Dbl action -S&W model 29 in Royal blue finish
autoloader..traditional Colt Goldcup polished blue
modern Sig Sauer X-5
& if $$$ isn't a problem..any Cabot 1911 would make me very happy,
esp. a National Standard Deluxe
Modern revolver: S&W K-38 Masterpiece. That how a DA revolver is supposed to look.
Semi-auto: GI 1911. I don't know why. And then there was the Wolverine.
Rhino: Unlike myself, the Rhino makes it all the way through ugly to handsome.
Just for the record, the Colt is 4 3/4" in length, the Rugers are 4 5/8".
I know, nitpicking!
