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 I carried one off-duty for a lot of years, and still have one, though I admit it's a little outdated by today's standards.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 But just "a little" outdated.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.
