Well we’ve clearly established that our membership have very refined and expensive taste. I salute you gentlemen!
mine is best looking ever!!!!!!!!Which rifle do we crown as the best looking ever? You know when you go into a gun store and they are all there on the pegs, one just looks, good, looks right, it is plain beautiful. It may be the form, the proportion, the ratio of wood to metal, the stock shape. Whatever it is- that is the one. I am not talking about the ornateness, in fact lets say beauty in plain clothes to sort of level the playing field.
of course this will be highly subjective, we will get many entries, but I have a hunch there may be a convergence towards just one.
So give your candidate, a few words why, and a thumbnail if you are the first on that one.
I will kick off with the Ruger No1. The form is so pleasing and the ratio of wood to metal works just right.

Not only is it well balanced but the level of workmanship in the inletting of the stock is exceptional! Also the extended belly gives it the “business “ look.Alright @Kevin Peacocke ,
My turn . View attachment 392697
I crown the original George Gibbs Magnum Mauser in .505 Gibbs . I find it to be just so well balanced and proportioned . Not as extravagantly ( and dare I say superficially ) engraved as some of the flashy rifles owned by Middle Eastern Sheikhs . But rather , elegant in simplicity .
