Default More pretty guns

Well, the last thread was fun, you can see it here:

Pretty guns - let's window shop!

Let's do it again.

Star Model S .380 ACP with Ajax custom rosewood grips showing differently in different light -





Browning HP - I like this one because of the wood grips I found for it:



Beretta Model 81 - I like all of these "Cheetah" guns; this one doesn't have the square trigger guard so it's better looking than my M85 but doesn't shoot nearly as well - so which is actually prettier, right?:



And, last but not least, and in my humble opinion the best looking gun on the planet, the SIG P-230 .380 ACP:

Elegant, to be sure. I carried one off-duty for a lot of years, and still have one, though I admit it's a little outdated by today's standards. I'm still looking for a set of factory walnut grips for it.

True. But just "a little" outdated. If I am inclined to tote a .380 that's my choice.

Talking Pretty much a nutsforsmiths copycat.

I agree they are fun pistols(also very accurate).

Beretta 71(my first firearm ever bought brand new in 1979) and Walther PPK. Both in .22LR.

@ walter o and ME94.

I did "like" your posts(if I didn't like Smith & Wessons I would not be in this forum). But, this is the "other firearms" sub forum. Show us your "other stuff".

Talking Pretty mysterious

I have this Aldo Uberti 1873 carbine replica in .22, it has a nickeled receiver and it is a "dead ringer" of the only original .22 "73" pictures I ever saw .

The thing is. I never saw this in any Uberti catalogs(only .22 version I ever saw was the 1866). I bought it 2nd hand and know nothing about it's past history.

Here it is.

More pretty guns-20180204_103645-jpg

PS. Also have a "normal" Uberti 73 carbine in .44-40. One of these days I will pick it up from the "vault" and take pictures of it.

I think the original Beretta 92 was a thing of beauty. It got a little busy looking in later years, but the original was an elegant pistol.

This one dates from way back in 1977...back when the gun first hit the street and before the Italian police requested the safety be changed to the slide. Not many like this around these days.

Kimber 1911. A 25th anniversary gift from my wife, hence the grips.



Sig 232 SL. Never carried it or shot it so I traded for a G19.



Sig 226. From the mid 90s, refinished.



BHP, refinished myself.



S&W 686+ in 3 inch. Not so pretty as it is unusual, at least to me.

I agree that a 3" M686+ does have a racier, prettier look than a longer or even a shorter barrel 686.

Default S$W 696-1

Another Safe Queen, bought several years ago.

Circa '99 S&W Model 696-1 Revolver, Swing Out Cylinder Hand
Ejector, 44S&W Special Cartridge, 5 Shot. Stainless Steel made,
Frame type "L" Round Butt Grip Frame, 3" Barrel, Adjustable
Rear Sight/Red Insert Front Sight, Uncle Mike's Synthetic
Finger Groove Grips.

I enjoy this prior Safe Queen, and Shoot it often. I'm very
careful with it.

My Plinking Reload for this is: 240gr Lead RNFP / 5.0grs Alliant
Red Dot / CCI LP #300 / Winchester brass / FPS 800?
