Wow there are sooo many I can think of like colt's first revolver, the 1911, the mosin nagant, springfield 03, or how about the mondragon rifle
(first semi-auto rifle invented by a Mexican general (I think) and produced with the help of sig) an other would have to be the Mauser

I like the Second Generation SAA colt 45 with the 7 1/2" barrel and Stag Grips. Yes, just like the one that I have!

Another vote for the Colt SAA and the 1911A1.
I'd have to throw in the Lee Enfields and Garand also.

General Manuel Mondragón was the inventor.. Sig was one of the companys that manufactured them.. It was made in Semi- and Full automatic..

Funny everybody makes fun of the Mexicans and Chinese (Liu Rifle) but they both beat us in developing a semi-auto rifle...

I've always thought the Peterson device was cool. It was a semi auto bolt insert into the m1903 and was supposed to fire a .32 caliber bullet. It was developed in ww1 but was never fielded. Also I heard the mondragon was used on planes before machineguns.

A toss-up for me between the M1 Garand and the Winchester '94.

For shooting fun, I think an M1 Carbine would be great.
