What would be your nominations? Mine would be the British Accuracy International AS50: And the Russian VSSK Vychlop:

The old Walther WA-2000 had some pretty nice space gun styling, and was pretty innovative as well.

Ya, that AS-50 has a HUGE muzzle break, but ya, it looked good. Me, i personally preferred rather a standard look. I'll take the PSG-1/MSG-90 rifle.

I think everyone has a different definition of the word "sexy" when it is applied to rifles. With me this automatically eliminates anything that even remotely looks like it might have stepped off the set of "Starship Troopers," or anything that the word "revolutionary" would be applied to. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and I prefer a classic look; remember, the question was not about the latest "gee whiz" development in rifles, or the best performing rifle by today's standards. The answer is: a Winchester Model 70 with a Unertl scope and the old-style military leather sling, in .30-06 of course! That baby has classic lines. You couldn't find a rifle that oozes more sex unless it had a curly maple stock and was handmade in Lancaster County, Pennsylvannia before 1800.

To each his own, I guess thats why theres so many manufacturers out there, to tailor to everyone's tastes.

For my money, I think the Soviet SVD sniper rifle has bags of cool.

Pretty sweet but I'd prefer it without the whatever it is in front of the scope (NV device?). I'd also add the Russian VSS and American CheyTac (And not just for the phenomenal bellistics of the ammunition for these rifles)
