My Interarms Virginian Dragoon 45LC 7" barrel of fun.
There just something about it.Bought it in 84 sold it in 07 always regretted it. Bought it back in 13 from the same shop. It was like seeing an old friend again. Not my most expensive but without a doubt my most fun.

Out of my handguns, probably my Python with my original Colt 1877 'Lightning' coming in a VERY close second

I do not know how to upload a picture but it is my Gebruder Adamy 3 rifle barrel drilling in 9.3x74. Waited 2 plus years and it cost as much as a plain toyota camry but it was worth it. When I pull it out ont he range everyone wants to look and shoot it.

My Dad's Model 70 Winchester, .30-06, manufactured in 1949. Great shooter and still in use. It has some wear marks from use.

Varminterror will become famous soon enoughVarminterror will become famous soon enough
I've been kicking this one around tonight a bit, and to be honest, I can't really say that I have one single "flagship" that stands out above the rest. I know I have a rack of rather boring functional hunters in the safe, a few that are a bit more exciting, and then a few that I could go on for hours about the intricacies of their builds.

I suppose my hurdle largely comes from the fact that I've spent so much time (any money) creating a custom collection of handguns and long guns that not any one member is less intriguing than the other. Out of the best of the best list in my safe, it'd be up to the individual viewer to decide which they prefer - a big game hunter would envy a different rig than a hardcore handgun hunter, and an AR fanatic would envy a different rig than cowboy action shooter. A levergun nut might pick a different favorite than a 1911 racer. So I guess we have something for everybody.

Well... I suppose you could say - we have something for everybody, except for the traditionalist. At best, some of my pieces are "new old school," but nothing is really traditional.

I have several custom built bench rest type rifles......as well as several vintage Remington 40Xs and some vintage Winchester 70 target rifles...............As far as a "flagship" or "statement" piece, nothing comes to mind. One of the 40Xs is a 222 Rem mag, which is somewhat unusual

Jim
Capital ships! I'm going to use that term now as well. So, based on (its) heritage, my M1 Garand is my flagship and the M1A and M1Carbine are capital ships.

There would be one or two other capital ships in my collection or they could be flagships of their own fleet. I have yet to divulge what these are however.

For rifles, got to say it's a tough choice, but I think it would have to be my 1874 Pedersoli Sharps in 45-70:

For pistol, I have a few I love, but this S&W Stainless Stealth hunter from 2001 is my favorite!
