      Five best looking handguns

      I know this is very subjective, but I would like to start buying the top 5 most handsome production handguns available. I don't care whether they're semi's or revolvers.

      I already own the ones I want. Now I would like to find the really good looking, good shooting ones (that I would shoot on a regular basis).

      No safe queens or artistically engraved show pieces. Just the best looking guns I can find.

      What are you opinions?

      Thanks for any ideas.

      I'd add a 4" blued Colt Python, a Walther PPK, and the Browning HP.

      BTW, even a glock would look good in JeffWard's picture, that's cheating...

      Based purely on aesthetics:

      Blued/case-hardened Colt SAA
      Blued 6" Colt Python
      Blued 6" S&W Combat Magnum
      Blued 6" S&W 1955 Target
      P08 Luger

      I don't think any of these are in current production, but all are common enough to find (with enough money).

      I think most modern guns are ugly, even if they do look rather businesslike. I personally don't care a whit what any gun looks like, though.

      Dang, Mike; you got 3-out-of-5 from my list, even though you got the Combat Magnum's barrel length "wrong".
      My list:

      Colt Python .357, 6" blued
      S&W Model 19 .357, 4" blued
      Luger P08
      Colt 1911A1 .45 ACP, 5" blued, with nicely figured grips
      Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 magnum

      No, no, no, DJ, you have it all wrong! The 4" Combat Magnum has the ramp front sight, usually with the hideous red insert, which is quite obviously inferior in appearance to the sensual target-style Patridge available on the 6" revolver. Jeez.

      Sensual?

      We gotta get you back in-country for good, and soon!

      I'm with you on the red ramps, though. Blech. Plain ramp for me, please, although the flat-faced Patridge you prefer certainly gives a nice crisp sight picture (even though it looks like a hatchet in profile).
