Coolest looking “gun” props in cinema history

Having grown up in a houseful of guns, and shooting all of them regularly (weren't many people around) it's the "real world" guns that you can own and shoot that look coolest to me.

Possibly my favourite (and I'm not alone) is the .44 Auto Mag which was invented and made in Pasadena California for a brief time, in the 1970s.

They're hard to find and expensive, but a friend has three of them, which he picked up relatively cheaply at Pawn Shops who didn't know what they had.

So I've had the opportunity to fire this amazing pistol. It's hard on the hand due to the violent recoil, really too powerful a round to make for a practical handgun. But it looks so cool on film!

I was going to say it was in Death Wish as well however I checked and it was the Wildey Hunter in 3.
My current favorite real gun is the Smith & Wesson Model 500 from John Wick 4.
That said also really like the Heckler & Koch USP Match from Lara Croft.
 
Well there’s my currant project.

USP, a beautiful extension to the human hand
 
For real guns, I have always loved the look of a good ol' fashioned round-magazine Tommy Gun...!
From pretty much any gangster movie...

And, speaking of gangsters, don't forget Danny Vermin's '.88 Magnum' from Johnny Dangerously...
They probably wouldn't include the line 'It shoots through schools' these days... :oops:

Almost too bad they didn't try to make a fake gun that was sized for an '.88 magnum' round. :) :)

For me, I'm old school... M1911 .45 ACP as seen in The Getaway with Steve McQueen and Saving Private Ryan with Tom Hanks

...., Magnum P.I., Cobra (Technically the 9mm version), Terminator 2, Casablanca, Sahara, Expendables, Remo Williams, Escape from L.A., Titanic, Rambo 4, and approximately 56,756.32 other things. Classics never go out of style.
