Right or wrong, I like a good looking gun, and some are better looking than others. Also beauty is absolutely in the eye of the beholder. Glocks, for example may be good guns, I would not know, I can't get past the fact I find them hideous. A walther PPk on the other hand, (Wowza!) Even the Bersa .380's are nice looking guns. Anyway, I thought I would start this thread for fun. I just want o know what three guns, you find to be the best looking. 1. Handgun, 2. Rifle, 3. Shotgun. There are no wrong answers, and this is about "looks", nor performance.
Have fun.


I am going to have to think a minute before I answer myself. :)

I am one gun away from my cowboy combo. I'm looking hard for a stainless SA revolver in 357 magnum. That will go nicely with my Marlin 336 and Springfield 511 side-by-side 12 gauge. 8)

Beauty is always in the beholder. I love deep bluing in the traditional steel firearms. That being said my 3 guns are: S&W Russian revolver, Browning A5 shotgun, and the Ruger #1 rifle.

Yeah, I still remember my GLOCK snob days. Until I actually bought and shot one. Bought 2 more just for the hell of it . . . I really continued buying them because turned out I shoot them pretty well. I consider myself an equal opportunity gun buyer - I currently own about 8 different firearm brands and don't look down on any of them.

For production guns

Pistol: I like the Taurus 845 the best, the design is great, coherent, solid but subdued. I bought it for the way it looks, I don't need it for shooting, really.

Rifle: Steyr AUG. Beauty in a class of its own. Guns, just like people, are basically advanced tubes. The AUG stays truer to this nature than most.

Shotgun: Don't have a pick, most of them generally look the same as most of the others.

I'm right there with you on 2 out of the three.

I love Colt Open Tops but I think this one is prettier.

Note the real bone meal color case hardening on the frame :thumb::wub: and the ivory (mammoth, I think or really old elephant) grips.

I don't have one of these, I may never have one of these, but I do appreciate their look and feel - antique Lady Smith revolver
