Title: Ok, so what is the best looking handgun?
Post by: handgun2 on February 19, 2017, 08:27:04 PM
Hi all,

while I am relatively new to handguns, I soon had a growing herd of CZ's and a few others.  I have come to appreciate lots of guns, some turn me on, some turn me off.  I have come realize.. I am becoming a bit of a handgun snob re: LOOKS

so, I would really like to see 'what' everyone else thinks is an attractive/handsome/ handgun. No restrainsts. Parkerized and beat w/ wear to Texas BarBQ style.

I would like to see.  I know what I am working towards on a rebuild. Just want to see what 'others' like.. so I can 'tweak' my idea of in needed.

thanks,
K in MI

CZs are fine looking guns - but as far as the "best looking"?

Luger P.08. I'd say "nothing else even comes close", but the reality is that the Finnish/Swedish Lahti "comes close".

I love my Luger and it has an iconic look. But gotta say it's a tough call between a Hi Power and a 75.

I like the 75 short rail and round guard pre-b's followed closely by the BHP. Well, that's 3 not one but I like what I like.  :)

Yeah, IMHO, the Luger P08 Navy is by far the most elegant Handgun ever made

No glock should ever be included in lists of best looking hand guns  ::)

I really love the look of the Shadow 2, but a classic 1911 always does the trick.

When my son was about 10 yrs old,  I made him a wooden Colt Python complete in details.  Also a Thompson Sub-gun.  ;D

I REALLY liked the looks of those big .357 Pythons.  Sorry I didn't buy one back in the day.

In many ways the guns I find best looking aren't the stock ones from the factory.......DIFFERENT is almost always better, if tastefully done and when you look at it you know what it is (lets say a CZ 75  ;D) but it catches your eye and your like "wow" that looks good  :)

Ok, so I'm not too much of a wheel gun collector. But if I had to pick the best looking firearm.... Period.... It would have to be the short barreled magnum 500. Something about how basic the operation of a wheel gun. The fact that it was around before the automatic and how basic it is to use. I just seem to be very attracted to how they look and their build quality. The 500 with a short barrel is my googley eye type. I can't leave well enough alone. Compensated short barrel with some deep engraving is what I think is totally amazing and beautiful. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170221/72369a1de2be4748197aa1e9dc410529.jpg)


I am a huge automatic guy. I love the 1911. If I was rich I'd have many more than I already do. Something about the case hardened Turnbull guns turns me up a bit. The commander length CH fame and a nice set of rich wood grips really does it for me with automatics. It's a sign of beauty when so much time and craftsmanship is put into one. This is beauty to me:

If we are talking about a "base form" (no engravings; fancy finishes, etc) it really has to be a CZ 75, with no FLDC.  The lines are classic; the pistol is sleek.  Of course, it owes all this to the  Browning designs!

I'm all about Purdy!!! :-*
While I don't consider the Broomhandle or Luger to be good looking, I do put them in the "Exceptionally Cool" category. Even the 1861 Navy Colt goes there in a homely sort of way.

You have to admit that cowboy guns set the standard for handgun beauty. So my first choice would have to be the Colt Peacemaker & variables.
The picture does the Ruger Montado (bottom) absolutely no justice. It really is a beautiful pistol.

Next, I have to go with a fighting pistol & nothing screams fighting like a good ol' 1911. I need to add a Dan Wesson Bobtail, something fierce.
Don't get me wrong, I think my matte stainless 75B is nice but the P01 just looks better.

For me- a Wlison Combat all black model.  I was at a lgs earlier and they had a CQB...oh mama, what a great looking gun.

CZs are great looking, but I think the two Walthers are the best looking, PP and P5(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170301/3079ac9bdac005b2eaa7eed3dce7a52a.jpg)

P38/P1 is one of my all-time favorites.  I found this 1968 Model 'Single Line' NIB back in December with the original box, owner's manual, cleaning rod, test target and two mags.  No import marks of any kind.  Original thin-slide that Walther later replaced with a thicker slide (at no cost to the owner) to enhance durability.  It's what I love about Walthers: all the oddball variations.

However, I must soon have the most expensive .22 made! It is not like I don'yt know how to take down the old MkII that I have had since the 80's, It is just that this is likely the ultimate evolution of the awesome Ruger pocket rifle!

With a $799 msrp, and street a bit less, I still have not found one since I took a pass on the one in my LGS before Christmas.

Billet Stainless lower is even more awesome than my Mk II.  Volquartsen trigger kits are now available as well, for that 2.5 lb sweet sweet feel!

I've got quite a like for the ruger mk .22 pistols but they're pretty ugly in my opinion. Although a hunter with the fluted barrel is pretty sweet, I'd have to say my PacLite All Aluminum 22/45 is a hotter ticket to punch. I like it more than some, but not more than the case colored 1911.

Great looking guns guys!  I almost thought this thread had died.
But, thanks for reviving.. 
Bat57,  tell me more about that HK P7!  that is a clean looking gun to my eye, don't think I know anything about them. Hmmm, gonna have to use some search kung fu! 
While I am not a really a revolver guy.. those 'Snake guns" really are sweet.  I shot many times as a kid, my Uncle's Dirty Harry Model!

thanks for giving more good things to look and at, ponder and lust over guys!

The P7's were amazing guns. A little complicated but a great gun nonetheless. An engineering marvel to be sure. They have been out of production for some time and I think the prices have gone through the roof.

The ONE CZ that grabs my attention when seen at a gun show is the urban gray CZ 75.  I don't know why, but it does.  Every time I see one I want to pick it up.  But I'm scared if I pick it up, I'll want it, if I want it, I'll buy it.  And I don't need it.  I've got a carry gun or two.  I've got a few range guns.  I'd have it, never carry it, never take it to the range, and I'd feel bad about it.

I've got some pretty pistols.  A two tone CZ 85 (pre B), a satin nickel CZ 85 Compact, an urban gray P01, a two tone P07, a two tone P09, a stainless steel 1911 (Colt Series 80), a two tone Browning BDM, and I won't even talk about the S&W revolvers that are over 30 years old and still look new.  But that urban gray CZ 75 just calls to me every time I see one.

Here's one for the Python-haters: an early 6" S&W Model 586 (no dash) with the S&W logo on the right side of the frame and the pinned Patridge front sight blade.  S&W couldn't tell me anything other than a 'limited' number were built at the factory, like this, in early 1982.  I stumbled across it at my LGS last week.  No original box but there isn't any dings, scratches or signs of handling on it.

(http://i.imgur.com/OcCCjDr.jpg?1)

I think the early L Frame S&W's had some of the nicest bluing outside of the Model 27's, which were slightly more polished.  I'm very excited to be taking this one home the day after tomorrow.

I had a new model 10-7. It was beautiful and had maybe two dozen rounds through it. I foolishly had it made into a PPC open gun. In hindsight I should have gotten a more used model 10 or 64 and saved the beauty for safe queen duty.

And of course due to it's Colt 1911 design heritage,  any Polish VIS P-35 "Radom", from early Polish guns to the last crude example assembled by the Germans at the end of WW2,  is very classy in a no-nonsense, business like, manner.
