I couldn't begin to choose just one. The Frazier museum in Louisville has a great collection of firearms. Here are a couple of them.

This is a fun thread to resurrect.

My choice would be the Smith & Wesson Model 3 Schofield. The gun that actually won the west... not that Colt interloper.

My favorites are the old Russian Model 91 and it's offspring. It is not a fine gun or a rare gun, but it offers collecting possibilites to a guy who works for a living. The ammo is cheap enough to shoot, and they function well. No matter how many you collect there is always one more or a better example of one you have. For the cost of one rare or semi-rare firearm you can have a room full of these historical rifles.

It is also, cool for me, who as a school kid in the 1950s and 60s, did the duck and cover drills, to end up with the Russians toys. I own the guns that protected Kruschev...... bury me, my a$$!

What a shock Chainfire fancy's Russian guns, identifies with the proletariat, and cites a West-threatening Communist leader. As for this American, I will always have only one Mosin-Nagant and it's made by Remington!

Regarding truly historic arms, can I leave it at what's in these, and counting?
