Discussion - "10 Best Semi-Auto Handguns of All Time"

Recommended Posts

The Mark 23 needs to be on the list, I'd say.

Why? It didn't influence the industry, it was a flop in the role for which it was designed, it hasn't rocked the competition world, it wasn't some watershed change in manufacturing, it has little to no historical significance.

I think it is significant because it was the only weapon platform that I can think of that was designed from the ground up to be an offensive platform versus a defensive one. Not to mention its performance in various torture tests and its inability to die.


Besides, it's never clarified what they mean by "best" handgun. If we are talking about most influential guns, then you have to mention the VP70 because it pioneered the polymer frame and striker mechanisms. The gun wasn't particularly good, but it influenced modern handguns in a big way.
