The very first custom handgun will always be my favorite. From 1928 until now they haven't made one more beautiful to me.

It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession.
I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.

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.
Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

Post some pictures of those two tone guns!

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.



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.

That's easy.....my new Model 10....circa 1978.

The place smells like whores and gun oil.

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.

I have always thought this CZC build was pretty amazing looking. Not mine.










Will work for CZ pics! (including but not limited to all CZ clones)

A nice, pristine, early 1911 Colt is about as good looking as it gets.

An original .44 Automag is a thing of beauty also.
