Discontinued guns you want brought back


September 12, 2004, 11:58 AM
Like the title says. The only criteria is that the manufacturer must still be in business and producing guns.

For me it is the Colt 380 gov't. This is the perfect little carry/BUG. Kind of a mini 1911. It is very light weight fror an all metal gun. I want one of these badly. but not enough to justify the $500=$600 price tags that have been on the ones that I do find.

.34-44 Heavy Duty. In .357 Magnum, of course.

Wouldn't that more or less just be a Model 520? :confused: (Which would be one of my choices, since they're already re-releasing the Model 21. :) )

Colt Monitor.

What is that? Anyone have a pic?

September 12, 2004, 12:06 PM
I would really love to own a NIB Colt Mustang. I think that with the popularity of the 1911 they are missing the boat by not bringing these back.

S&W 10mm semi-autos.

September 12, 2004, 12:15 PM
Well, I have one specific gun I'd like to see them bring back, and one "trend", for lack of a better word.

I'd like to see Winchester bring back the Model 52C or 52D rifle. These are probably the quintissential American .22 target rifles.

The trend I'd like to see would be for S&W to bring back their pinned and recessed, beautifully blued, pre 1981 magnum revolvers. The new stainless, scandium, titanium jobs they're offering just don't do it for me like the old ones do.

September 12, 2004, 12:23 PM
That .22WMR pistol that held 30 rounds.

September 12, 2004, 12:48 PM
HK P9/P9S series.

A roller-lock handgun. How cool is that? :cool:

September 12, 2004, 12:50 PM
That .22WMR pistol that held 30 rounds.

Wasn't that called a Grendal something or other? I almost bought one. Had it been in .22lr, it would have been bought.

Marlin Camp Carbine. I had a 9mm. Wish I never sold it. I would buy a 45 acp in a heart beat.

I don't remember the name of the manufacturer but they made a Featherweight brand .22lr and 9mm carbines. I had the .22 version and was very fun to shoot. My God-son now enjoys the rifle.

September 12, 2004, 12:51 PM
From Colt: Prewar National Match 1911, Detective specials, Woodsman
From S&W: Model 58, but this could certainly be expanded to all of the pinned and reccessed N frames
From HK: HK-91, SL-7, P7M13
Savage: Model 99
Browning: BLR's made in Belgium
Ithaca: Model 37 trench gun, slam type
Winchester: Model 12
Weatherby: Rifles still built on Belgium Mauser actions
Remingon: 6mm in something other than a varmit rifle, and 280's back in the model lineup
Sako: old "L" series action guns
Husky: Start making guns again, instead of lawnmowers
BRNO: 601, and 602 action riles

I'm sure I can think of some more, but thhe above is a good start.

Any S&W 44 Special, S&Ws without the idiot lock, S&Ws in blue steel and the first series of Kimber (without the other idiot lock).

While on the subject, Ruger bringing back the 3 Screw Model Blackhawk would be nice too.

All the above is wishful thinking, but you asked.


September 12, 2004, 01:04 PM
Ruger #3
Remington 788

September 12, 2004, 01:09 PM
I'm with Rexrider - Marlin, PLEEEAAASE bring back the Camp Carbine! I have one in minty condition, caliber .45 ACP, and every time I take it to the range I get ridiculously high offers for it by folks who are dying to own one. I think Marlin could make some big bucks here.

September 12, 2004, 01:29 PM

September 12, 2004, 01:39 PM
'NUTHER vote fer S&W 10's. I need a 1006.

Colt New Service.

Colt 1903 Pocket auto.

Savage 99 rifle.

SW 547 in stainless steel. SW 942 (only 1 made).

The Sharps 4 barrelled derringer. HJS made them in 22 LR but they folded. I was in FL and saw a whole table of them but that's the wrong state for me. Bah!

Just want it as a cute cowboy era gun.

September 12, 2004, 03:31 PM
All the Mustang pistols and some 38 spl. top break rev.

All of the old Smiths with precision craftsmanship and pinned barrels with recessed chambers.

The older Colt Pythons with the action as smooth as glass and finish to boot.

Colt Diamondback 22 with six inch barrel.

This is off the topic but I'd also like to have back: every gun I've ever sold or traded.

agreed the Colt 1903 modified to use new hollowpoint ammunition and somebody to make the Grendel .22 magnum pistol or even make it in the .17hmr round. Also the german sg44 modified to use 7.62x39 ammunition would make things fun

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen at THR:

"Hi" to everybody! After cruising your great discussion forums for a couple of months, I've decided to become an active participant finally. The finest people I've ever met have been involved in guns and shooting and that's certainly the case here! Please allow me to say that as a foreigner I am glad that the Semi-auto Assault Weapons Ban has finally expired. In our day and time it's a rare occurance when gun bans of any kind are lifted.

Up front, please accept my apology if my English isn't good from time to time.

Here's my first post to the thread here:

The gun I wish being made again is the S&W M25-5 in .45 Colt w/4" and 6" barrels. That was a great "general purpose" handgun.

I'd like to thank you for being accepted as a new THR member. :)

September 14, 2004, 07:46 AM
Welcome TK-73. Believe me, there is nothing wrong with your communication in English.

For the discontinued gun, I'd love to see Ruger go back to producing the "Six" series. Most specifically, the 2-3/4" Speed Six in .357 .

Welcome, TK73!

Yet another vote for the Colt .380 Gov't. I'd also like to see someone rerelease the Luger or the P-38, with one alteration: I don't know how the -38 is, but my info tells me that the Luger doesn't do well with hollowpoints (if this is incorrect, please let me know). If they could alter it to feed modern defensive ammo, that would be carry with class!

Another vote for the Govt .380. Have a std Mustang (it was my ma's), but would LOVE the mini 1911...

One that hasn't been mentioned, and REALLY should be: the Mauser Broomy. Mauser IS still in the gun buisness, and I would absolutely LOVE to have one of the detachable mag Broomies (say, in the Bolo config. Talk about carry with STYLE! And most badguys would think you had just pulled a raygun)...

The Colt 1903 hammerless was chambered for 32acp. The 380 version was the Model 1908. Neither was ever made with an exposed hammer.

I know of about a dozen Colt 1903 & 1908 pistols for sale in the Seattle area. It seems that evey gunshop is required to have a Colt Pocket model and a Hi Stahdard Derringer in their display case at all times. ;)

why did they quit making them? Ive shot the crap out of it in the past 3 months and have never had a malfunction. but thats with my handloads.
any ideas why they stopped production?

another vote for the 1006 and the savage 99's
ive got two 99s one in .243 and one in .250-3000
and theyre both built like swiss watches.
they just dont make em like that anymore

September 15, 2004, 04:10 PM
IMI Timberwolf carbines in .357 and .44 Mag.. SS would be terrific gravy. Leave off the integral mount and factory drill & tap for receiver sight. Modify design so that the magazine can be topped-off with the action in battery, and you have an almost perfect HD and woods walking piece, IMHO.

Uh, the first 4 will also require bringing back federal law as it was before 1934, which I'd like a whole bunch more than any or all of these fine weapons.

Why do we have less rights than our grandfathers? They could have gone to the store and purchased any of those (OK, not the GI M-14, it wasn't available yet) without any tax stamp, background check or permission slip from Mommy (eeeerrrr, the local chief of police) or wait, simply by plunking down a few dollars on the counter...but we can't.

Smith/Wesson Model 19, among other discontinued S&W Revolvers.

Colt Delta Elite.

December 27, 2004, 04:50 PM
Properly-made S&W revolvers. This means pinned and recessed, real steel (not MIM) internals, no %$#! internal lock, and the firing pin on the hammer where it belongs.

Properly-made Colt AR15 rifles for civilians through regular retail channels. This means regular size pins, no block in the lower, threaded barrel/flash hider, and bayonet lug. Telescoping stocks on some models, too.

The original .44 AutoMag . . . if someone could produce it out of better materials or fix the design so it wasn't so prone to breakage.

Over the counter suppressors . . . but that would require a change in Federal law. Not likely to happen. :(

Let's not forget accessories . . . I'd like to see Hi cap (>10 rounds) Ruger Mini-14 magazines available from the factory through regular retail channels.

"Would it be wrong for me to wish that I could go buy a new Firestar ? I loved those little guns."

I do to, I've got two of them, one in 9mm and one in 45 acp.

The one pistol I'd really like to see is the Colt Mustang, and also the 10mm


December 28, 2004, 10:55 AM
I like the Colt Govt and Mustang .380 acp pistols. They are nice, slim, and and compact. They also appear to be very durable (i've never owned one).

I have a Beretta .380acp, and it's a good shooter and very durable, but it's fairly chunky, especially when compared to the Colt Govt .380 model. Also the recoil on the Beretta, which is a blow-back action pistol, is pretty snappy. I've heard that the Colt Govt's and Mustang's have less perceived recoil due to their lock-breeched action design.

99E and 99A in at least .308 and .250 Savage calibers.
.243 and .300 Savage would be nice too.

Also count me in for the Nylon 66.
Remington could have made new moulds and continued production for the same money they spent on the goofy 597 rifles.

What exactly was wrong with the 580/581/582 bolt action rifles?
Another Remington rimfire line I would like to see come back on the market.

Remington 788
God what were we thinking when we weren't buying them?
What was Remington thinking when they did not attempt to better advertise these fine, inexpensive rifles!

I'd like to have a Marlin 45 Camp carbine and a Ruger Blackhawk .357 mag/ 9mm Convertable with a 7" barrel. I've got a Blackhawk .45ACP/.45 Colt convertable with a 5 5/8" barrel and it's a favorite shooter of mine. Camp Carbines are great plinkers and I'd like to have one, but the price tags they carry are nuts.

Any of the "D" Frame Colts. Detective Special and Diamondback come to mind(maybe 357 rated?). Even if they were customshop guns I would love to be able to buy a new small frame Colt.

I want the Savage 99 in 308 back too, while I'm at it.

How 'bout blued Smith and Wessons? It has to be some sort of Communist plot that they don't have those in regular production.

Hi Standard Supermatic Citation,

already back in production, but unfortunately NOT made to the same standards as the older guns.

as for what I want...

Savage 99 with the rotary mag

a USGI M-14 made in the states at a reasonanble price (don't even care if it's a Semi-auto)

and for Remington to bring back the Model 600, and drop that frankenstein 6whatever thing they brought out with the 600 style rib and sights but on a 700 action.

December 29, 2004, 12:01 AM
I'd like to see the first edition CZ-75 made again.

December 29, 2004, 12:14 AM
I just wish they would make nicely blued Double Action Sixguns again - like the old Pythons or the SW 27s and 29s etc.

December 29, 2004, 02:56 AM
Anything made by Colt

Lightning rifles, New Frontier Six Shooters, A New Service in .357, the Delta... the 1903, I could go on.

Bren Ten
Gov't .380 / Mustang

For me it is the Colt 380 gov't. This is the perfect little carry/BUG. Kind of a mini 1911. It is very light weight fror an all metal gun. I want one of these badly. but not enough to justify the $500=$600 price tags that have been on the ones that I do find.

Go ahead, bite the bullet, and buy one. Even if Colt would bring it back, they would probably charge that much for new ones.

December 29, 2004, 02:22 PM
Star PD. Both fixed and adjustable sight models.

March 27, 2005, 09:33 AM
Colt Woodsman, Python

S&W 18, 19, 27 and while they are at it, put nice wood grips back on! Not that the new ones do not have a place, but a black rubber grip on a beautiful gun just does not seem fitting right out of the box

March 27, 2005, 11:05 AM
Fixed barrel,hard chrome internals, great grip angle. Very accurate.

March 27, 2005, 07:23 PM
Colt 380 Government (or Mustang II Plus)

Winchester 22lr, ammunition was loaded through the stock and it was a semi auto, forgot the model number

I think you are looking for the Model 63. Taurus is building one that is very close to the original, except for a somewhat non-obtrusive lock in the bolt. Mine is a very nicely made rifle.

The gun I would want to see built is the Winchester 62. I wouldn't mind the Taurus if it only had the lock on the hammer, but the addition of a "lawyer button" safety on the top of the receiver is just too much for my tastes.

Another vote for the Ruger 2 3/4 inch Speed Six.

The Remington 600.

I am sure I will think of others.


March 28, 2005, 08:30 PM
Star PD. It's the first weapon I ever bought for CCW. I love it too much to shoot it as much as I'd like to, cause parts are as hard to find as sense in CA gunlaws.
Savage 99.
