Spot saved for a 3" nickel S&W pre-30 in 32 S&W.
Luckily I said or not and... Find something cool, pretty, classic, rare, unique, or otherwise special to you.

in that case, I do love a few of mine
Caracal F - a UAE recall-replacement gun. They're great guns, and not super common either.
I also like my MK23 a lot. not super rare, just got it for a good deal and I love shooting it.
my comp'd beretta 90-two is also suuch a fun gun to shoot and kind of unique since I put it together.

My one of one S&W Performance Center Prototype 45CQB. Used on the cover of American Handgunner and inside for the article on the model.
From back when Performance Center meant something. Regards 18DAI

I do not think I have anything that qualifies as "weird" and as to most valuable, are you really just looking for something that lots of money was spent on? That is going to be something engraved with gold and platinum inlays, probably more gaudy than interesting.
Now Rarest? That is easy
That would be my Smith and Wesson SW40Ti Titanium SIGMA. Not really a cool or highly sought after firearm, but there is only one of them that was made
Or the one Smith and Wesson model 3566 Limited that was produced with two top ends. One for 356TSW and one for 40S&W. Notice one safety is domed and one is dished to provide easy visual and tactile identification of which top end is mounted.
Seldom seen is a MUCH larger category
Probably should start this off with a Wildey Magnum.
Or the LAR Grizzly long slide
Going to the opposite end of the size and weight scale is perhaps the 2", 19 ounce total Titanium Taurus model 450 chambered in 45 Long Colt
The 45 Super Long Slide from Springfield is very seldom seen pistol from the well known 1911 manufacturer
The Smith and Wesson Performance Center 940 Special which was chambered in 356TSW. 300 were manufactured but they do not get out much
Even more seldom seen is one of the 25, first day of production, Smith and Wesson model 649s that the factory had Class A+ engraved. This is the 39th model 649 produced.
Or one of the 5 Master engraved and nickel plated Smith and Wesson model 45s that were created to be part of the Factory's permanent Museum collection
Well I can see from participating in this thread that I need to rephotograph some of the firearms that were added 10-15-20+ years ago and take pictures of several firearms that could join this category if I had images.

I got this oddity from a trade with member redleg2/9, a consecutive serial numbered slide-frame P228.
The info I received from member 220parts' contact over Germany, who used to work at SIG, was that this was a factory mistake/mix-up.
"After proof shooting and sighting in, the pistols were field striped again for cleaning. Slide and Frame were separated.
After this the pair the wrong parts and in final inspection they don’t found the mistake."
Now, if I somehow ended up with its mix-up twin, I definitely am going to buy a lottery ticket.

about too much
MY grandmother had one. Sadly, it disappeared after her death.

If I have a volunteer to post a photo, I can show you what I believe to be a one of a kind Smith revolver.

Q, does this have the date code? I'm trying to narrow down the JF range from our list. So looking to narrow further between these:
M540-XXX-JE-1984-Tysons Corner = Thanks to rappa
M553-XXX-JG-1986-PW Arms = Thanks to C-Dubs

You can email it to me at the address in my profile. I'll post it for you.
#25 out of the final run of 100 Valmet L-35 "Lahti" made in 1985. Likely the only one in the US.

Bye for a while, guard the fort. - My Dad
My Grandfather's S&W, M&P Model of 1905, 1st change.
Rare/valuable only to me because it belonged to my Grandfather.
They are still made by the company that originally made them, Hammerli, but they are now called the Xesse.
Larry's guns sells them and parts in the USA.
The anticipation is often greater than the actual reward
