Revolver-1873 Colt SAA

Semi auto-Colt 1911a1

They are both the best for the same reason. They are both time tested designs and most handguns are held to their standards. They are also the most popular and well known handguns ever.

these two for sure. both have been proven with time and both have been copied and cloned many times, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! also both show that form follows function.

Everyone knows what im gonna say, so ill say it..

Phillips & Rodgers Medusa M47,
its made with mil spec 4330 modified vanadium steel (the same alloy used in the Gatling gun barrels of F-16 Falcon fighters) and is specially hardened. The Medusa frame is 28 Rockwell and the cylinders are proofed at 86,000 psi per cylinder. Its the strongest gun I know of, and it can shoot over 20 calibers.....

made from 1995 to 2001

Couldn't agree more. I also think the Browning Hi Power and the Volcanic Repeating Arms Company's Volcanic Pistol should be included. The main reason for the Hi Power is it set the standards for most modern 9mm pistols. As for the Volcanic Pistol it's design further improved on the Jennings rifle, which lead to the invention of the Henry rifle and all the Winchester lever action rifles.

I would throw into the ring for consideration the S&W model 27. Many a LEO carried them for most of their generation..... Simplicity and reliability.
