Default Your Best Looking Smith - Post Picture

In your opinion, what is the best looking Smith & Wesson handgun you own? There have got to be some really nice looking ones out there. I had to pick this 19-5 nickel with Altamont grips that I just picked up. It's from 1986; and , as far as looks, it beat out all my other Smiths (which surprised me).

This one is easy.

1970 Model 28-2





The grips aren't original to the gun, but they were inexpensive.

Best looking nickel.
Model 25 in .45 Colt:


Best looking blue.
Model 58 in .41 Magnum.


Best looking stainless.
Model 624 in .44 Special. This thing was really dirty and rough when I obtained it but it cleaned up fairly well.

Probably between these two.

The Holster will work for either.
So it depends if we're BBQing or going to a meeting

Well neither of my snubs are pretty, but the 64 looks pretty good with Ahends boot grips/stocks and Brill style holster from member 05CarbonDRZ.

Not sure if the later ones were also done by Turnbull or if S&W did them in-house, probably Turnbull.

Here are all the original guns in the Case Hardened finish:



And my favorite of the group, totally stunning:

To me, the blued 4" Combat Masterpiece is the best looking firearm ever made.

Getting to see a lot of the classic Smiths, and the grips being used are awesome. It's looking like Smith hit their high-point sometime in the 1970's-1980's. Great pictures of some super guns.

That's easy , that would be my newest purchase
Mod.48 no dash

No wait, What the heck am I thinking, it's my 586 no dash

Or, maybe it's the mod.19 that I bought for my wife for our 30th

Who am I kidding, I can't pick a favorite, I like em all ! Incl. my stainless guns.
