maybe the truest holy grail pistol are the one off luger .45 acp that were submitted to the U.S. army trials of 1907... luger .45 serial #1 is thought to be destroyed after the trials, but its exact fate remains unknown... imagine finding that thing

What model is that, like a 586 maybe?

That's a sweet pistol!!




Looks to be a 686 4" stainless......a 586 would be blued rather than stainless.

I'm not an expert on S&W's, so the 686 had the full barrel support? That's the one thing I never liked much about S&W revolvers, the chopped barrel support. It's an aesthetics thing for me mostly. Just looks asymmetrical. That full lug on the bottom just gave the Python such a great 'line'. Add in the full length vent rib on the top and you have one of the best looking pistols ever manufactured in my humble opinion. And the Colt blue was such an elegant purple color. There's never been anything made like that before or since.

If I was forced to get a gun.. in a desperate situation, and the laws in my country allowed it

I would like a Desert Eagle .50 caliber, kicks a punch and looks awesome, and I bet it got a nice grip to it.

Thanks.

Its a 686 if I remember correctly. Very accurate, very reliable, and not too heavy ( The 50 Mag is 5 lbs)

It's not a Colt Python but IS a Colt Lawman MK3 357 , 6" bull barrel that I still own. I bought it new in the mid 70's and still have it. It's the most accurate fixed sight revolver I have ever shot. Wouldn't trade it for anything on the market today. One sweet 357.

I agree. I know it's plastic and I know it's "only" 9mm, but the reason I like it is because it fits my hand so well and carries well as it is not full-sized. I know there are "cooler" ones out there, but sometimes they're too nose heavy. The smaller ones leave my pinky in the air. This just feels good.


A 9mm can do some damage but is often times not lethal. But still a gun is a gun no matter what.

I don't think the desert eagle is a true 50 caliber Magnum. My Smith and Wesson 500 is

Yeah, it blows a 2 foot diameter ball of flame when I shoot it at night. You have to hang on tight and wear a padded glove. It always pulls muscles in my hand when I fire it. Sore the next day

I have a Colt Combat Commander in .38 Super that was made in 1976 and my Dad bought in 77/78. Great gun, accurate, shoots well and no more felt recoil than many 9 mm.
The down side? Ammo is $30 a box. Oh, you can buy the cheap crap for about $17, but you'll spend more time clearing FTF/fire than shooting, but any name brand/dependable ammo.....$30.

It doesn't get out much these days.

The .50 S&W is an absolute cannon, a deafening, punishing "cannon".

It's a beautiful firearm, but I've not shot one and don't have any real desire to. I've shot a .454 Casul and even that's a fire breathing monster. Theres a video out there of a guy who put a .577 Tyrannosaur into a pistol. Practically killed him.

There's a point at which a person has to say, "no, this belongs in a rifle only". The .50 S&W is pushing that envelope. It's cool, but it's damn near as heavy as a rifle (maybe more than some).

No issues with me, I just won't be carrying something like that (not even in AK where I go often). It's just too much pistol for me to carry around. I usually carry a SA .44 up there. I've never been actually attacked, but I have been charged by a Brown Bear sow (with a nearby cub). It was a 'false charge' and I did draw and fire (into the ground). She stopped and stared at me for a moment, then bolted off with her cub (I spent the next hour cleaning my britches). In the wet under and over growth forest where I was when that happened I was nearly deaf for hours, and that was just a .44 mag. I can't even imagine doing that with a .50 S&W (unless you fish with double hearing protection on)
