My most unique handgun would have to be my RPM Merrill Pistol wide frame in 45/70 Govt. This gun is one of six prototype pistols made with a stainless steel frame. All of the other RPM frames were plated in hard chrome. More pictures and info. are in my article on RPM pistols.
This 38 S&W #2 was taken out of a wall that was built around it. The house was over 100 years old and the pistol was discovered during the remodel. It was intentionally placed on a weather brace and the wall was sealed from above. Maybe a murder weapon? We will never know. [img][/img]

I was a handgun hunter, when handgun wasn't cool.....
I have three that are near and dear to my heart. The first is an old Sears and Roebuck bolt action 20 gauge. The second is my dads WW2/Korea carry Remington Rand 1911 and finally my dad built my mom a 30-06 deer rifle using a war surplus Smith Corona action, Monkeypod wood stock and a gold trigger. Still shoot the 1911 and the 30-06 from time to time. None of them would grab top dollar or anything like that just a lot of great memories as family keep sakes that can still function.

if your familiar with S&W J-frame 22`s you will know they came in 2"- 3 1/2"- 4" and a short run of 5" m-63`s. However, their model 35 has a true 6" barrel making it unique among 22 revolver`s. A lightweight field gun that writer Russell Annabelle used to take out some bad wolves in Alaska...
