Guns You'd Like To See Produced.

I know that this kind of thread has been done before, but I find it interesting and enjoyable to see what kind of guns others would like to see produced, and sharing with others what I'd like to see produced. (And yes, I know we'd all like to be able to buy a phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range, or a Star Trek phaser, but how about sticking with guns that are currently technologically possible....);)

Here's my list:

SIG P225 ST (all stainless, no alloy frame, and for God's sake don't put a rail on it....) available in 9mm, .40S&W, .357SIG

Browning Hi-Power stainless

Browning Hi-Power Standard (polished blue & wood grips) with a ring hammer

Colt Detective Special blued & stainless available in .38/.357, .32 H&R Magnum, .22LR

Ruger Single-Six with a Remington type grip (like the Bearcat)

A high quality, accurate reproduction of the Walther P38 (steel frame)

Current production S&W revolvers with no MIM parts, no lock, no two-piece barrels, real case-hardened triggers/hammers, and no ugly current style cylinder release latches (give me the type that came right after the flat latch). Yes dammit, I know I'd pay more for them! *I have to give S&W credit for at least approaching this with their new "classic" line, their new M40 Centennial sure looks interesting....

S&W 36 & 40 (made as above) in .32H&R Magnum

Colt 1903/1908 Hammerless, perhaps as a reproduction from USFA

Garand & M1 Carbine reproductions/look alikes chambered in .22LR

A reproduction Webley MK VI available in .38 Special & .22LR

High Quality reproductions of the Luger P08 and Broomhandle C96 (dig deep into those pockets for these, 'cause they sure wouldn't be cheap....)

Marlin 1896C with a 16" barrel and a factory installed ghost ring rear sight (mounted on the receiver)

Ruger Mini-14 with a slightly heavier barrel

A Ruger Standard Model .22LR that had an action more like the Lahti L-35, rather than it's current Rube Goldberg-like configuration

The newer, remodeled Walther/S&W PPK & PPK/S available blued or stainless, chambered in .22LR

CZ 75 BD Stainless

CZ P01 Stainless




As strange as it may be, that's my list. What's yours?

Adams reproduction (there was one being mader in Switzerland, but only a few copies ever created).

Bergmann Bayard - to add to the list of C96, P-08 and other classic.

Bring back the Colt Python and Dick Special

M1A in 243, 260 Remington and 7mm-08

Bring back the 1885 Low wall, and Sharps Bochart

US made Walther TP22 (The German made one is non-importable)

Bring back the S&W 547 and a 40 S&W version

That's a start.

I too would like to see many of the guns mentioned so far.
I have a few requests for Ruger.

1. Offer the Bisley in stainless as standard with 4-5/8", 5-1/2", and 7-1/2" barrels, in all standard calibers to include the .22s

2. A GP100 .44 SPL, it would probably have to be a five shooter, which is fine by me. I'd like to see it in both a 4" adjustable sight version and a 3" short lug fixed sight version. A variation on the theme would be the same gun with .45 ACP chambers for use with moon clips. I think the 3" fixed sight versions would make great carry guns, and the 4" adj sight versions would make great camp/trail guns.

3. Offer the Frontier rifle with detachable 5 and 10 round mags(I don't care if they are proprietary mags or whatever, just offer them!!), back up iron sights, and a couple extra inches of barrel wouldn't hurt.
While they're at it, they can add a tough synthetic/fiberglass stock with a bit longer length of pull. Those mods would make the Frontier rifle what it should have been from the beginning!

The Taurus 1911 in stainless steel would be nice. Yes I know they've been talking about releasing one but at this point I'm not gonna hold my breath.

Now I'm not exactly sure if we're only supposed to list things that we wished existed or if we can list firearms that exist but aren't available to buy... but as far as thats concerned I would love for the FN SCAR to become available to the civilian market. I've been hearing that it might in '08 so thats a good sign.

Dear Santa,

I wanna Marlin 62 in .30 carbine. (Pleeze bring dem back!)

I wanna Ruger 77/30 (in .30 carbine).

I wanna Beretta CX30 . . . in .30 carbine.

I wanna Kel-tec Sub 3000 . . . in .30 carbine.

I wanna Taurus M1 Carbine reproduction. In .30 carbine.

I wanna single shot NEF Handi Rifle. In .30 carbine.

I wanna Armalite (or DPMS, or Bushmaster, or . . .) AR15 clone . . . in .30 carbine.

They've already tried a number of pistols chambered in that "pistol cartridge" and it's pretty much a non-starter. Something to do with a minimum barrel length requirement. Loud bangs. Daylight-visible muzzle flash.

The solution, obviously, is to make more carbines in that calibre.

-Bone Stock Gov't Model of 1911 as originally done, including mags, all to original Specs

-Bone Stock of above in Commander size, in both all Steel and Lt Wt.

-Remington Nylon 66 .22 rifle, make mine butt fed please.

-S&W J frame 32 cal revolvers, blued and stainless.

-Winchester '97, just like JMB designed it, in both Standard and Take down.

-Colt Woodsman

-Colt Mustang

-High Standard Duramatic

That will do for starters in the Bring them Back category of what needs producing again.

New offerings:

-Affordable , Quality, .22 revolvers in J frame, K frame and Colt D frame sizes.

-Beretta 28 gauge semi-auto shotguns in a 303 platform (first choice) or 390 platform

-Beretta "working persons" SxS shotguns, in 20, 28, gauge for starters and then later a 12 and .410.
Think Stevens 311, except with Beretta Quality.


-A 1911 style , .22 rim-fire, scaled between the 1911 and Mustang.
I mean welded base mags, that hold 7 rounds, the whole bit, that looks and operates like JMB's original 1911

This would allow kids, for instance to shoot 1911 and get the correct basics down with a gun that operates the same as a big one.
Great tool for adults and general plinker and fun gun.

Ok I'll Play

S & W just re-issue
696 .44 Spcl 5 shot cyl.
631 .32 H & R Mag.
and build them both with and with out the
standard these days full underlug. with
barrel length options in 2.5 3 4 5 and 6 inch barrels.

617 in .22 LR build a companion to the 686 Service
that doesn't have the full underlug for a lighter weapon
that is handier and freindly to those who want it.

COlt just bring back a good number per year of Pythons

hmmm...

An H & K P7 design in .40 S & W

I'll also vote for a PPK/S in .22 LR for a companion
to a .380 JB

A Mini-4 in a smaller than 7.62 but larger than 5.56
round as a true all around 'ranch' rifle

Just a new prod luger from Mauser... in the variants of barrel length

I have a project of converting a Marlin 1894 Cowboy in .45 COlt to
.45 Auto RIm with a SHilen 17 inch bull barrel to go with my S & W
.45 ACP / AR revolvers. but it will be able to be converted back to the longer
.45 Colt and stok half octagon barrel...

or a M1 Carbine in any thing bigger bore /velocity wise

A DOMESTIC re-production of the full-sized, originally Russian designed SVD Dragunov.

if those flooded the market, it would make the TIGER's more of a relic and having a reliable rifle of such magnitude would be lots cheaper and easier to get me thinks...

You know, Arctic Assault, I was actually thinking about that last night, about the SVD.

But you know what? Izhmash already makes them, for hunting purposes. They look very similar, and I'm not talking about ordinary Tigr carbines. I'm talking about full-sized SVD Tigr, minus a few air holes in the wooden handguard, and minus a bayonet lug. I believe it takes SVD mags. If only someone would import them. GCA of '68, it looks like it's for sporting purposes to me!

Also, a pre-made wooden stock kit, to transform the Ruger 10/22 into an m1 carbine look a-like.

I'd also like to see an SKS that can take FINNED AK mags.

Not to mention, I wanna see an ar-15/m16 with a milled or forged STEEL, not aluminum, STEEL receiver.

Famous Guns of History collection

a series of well made, but not overly expensive 3/4 scale replicas of notable military arms chambered in 22lr, with a new model every month or two , for the first year perhaps M1 garand, Thompson SMG, M1 carbine, 98k, STG 44, SMLE mk IV, Bren, MG42, 1911, p-08, Mosin Nagant, BAR

its for the kids (from 10-100)

another good one would be a full automatic magnetic pulse rail rifle employing a modified compact version of Mr. Fusion for power generation to propel standard 1/4" steel ball bearings at high speed with astounding accuracy (technically not a firearm) shoot a few thousand rounds for $5 in bearings and some garbage.

a semi-auto ppsh-41 in 7.62 tok

a 7.62 tok conversion kit for the 1911
and one for the AR-15 too

someone ought to make a revolver in 10mm that shoots .40 S&W too

that's all I can think of now.

GunTech
August 5, 2007, 10:29 AM
SM,

Thanks for reminding me about the Mustang. While there add it, how about an all steel version, even stainless. Also bring back the Government model 380. It's far easier to cycle the slide than a blowback and perfect for those with small hands and not a lot of grip strength (like my 13 year old daughter)

I's also like a 12 gauge semi with a detachable magazine that works

Also, A Colt Defender would be cool, even if I have to pay $200 tax for an authentic style. A Winchester liberator would be neat.

A small carbine in 5.7x28 might be fun. The P90 is not my cut of tea. How about a more conventional carbine like the old M1 or the Ruger police carbines, using the FiveseveN postol magazine and weighing in at about 4 pounds or less. Also, FN load a hotter version of the 5.7. I want a semi-auto 22 hornet.

New for 2008:

SIG produces the SIG SP226:

a carbine that takes P226 magazines
is chambered for both .40 and 9mm
adjustable ghost ring sights with a railed flattop
dual canted lower mini rails for lights/laser
16.5" threaded barrel, drop free magazine release
requires no tools to disassemble other than bullet tip

and comes in both pistol grip and non pistol gripped version (so that I can buy one here in ca)

August 5, 2007, 01:39 PM
I'd like to see a carbine in 44mag....with a capacity of at least 7 rounds.

I think out of a barrel greater than a foot long, the 44 mag REALLY shines. Also, unlike 45 automag, or even more exotic 458 soccom or what have you, 44 mag is everywhere.

I've been told that with the rim, it would be nearly impossible to put a 357 or 44 mag into an AR platform as anything other than single shot. That's too bad. The ruger carbine is great, but as of yet no one has come up with a higher capacity mag than 4, and that is a true pitty.

Seems to me if a Desert Eagle can have a 7 shot mag or whatever, simply the same design enlongated to handle 10, 12, or whatever should be able to be paired up with a carbine design. Alternatively, why couldn't a underbarrel tube magazine work for a carbine semi-auto, just like it works with a semi-auto shotgun. Seems to me you could have a carbine that greatly resembles a lever action...except with no lever and no exposed hammer up top

August 5, 2007, 05:09 PM
Hmmm, how about a Remington 700 in 7.62x54r? Or a semi-auto for that cartridge as well?

Sand Pirate beat me to the 1941 Johnson, darnit! I got to fire one about 5 years ago, what a neat weapon.

For an "out-there" idea, how about a Gyrojet reproduction, or another try at the carbine length Gyrojet?

A micro bolt action in 7.62x39 with good rugged ghost ring sights, a tough finish, a synthetic or laminated stock, and a ten round magazine that will load from stripper clips. Left hand option, of course. A bolt action SKS, if you will, with better sights and ergonomics.

A short action rifle likewise, with a scout scope mount. Basically a Cooper style scout rifle with a fixed 10 round box and stripper clip guides.

And of course a double barreled bolt action for heavy game. Oh wait,someone beat me to it.

I'd like Colt to produce the LE1020 gas piston upper.

an assault weapon, basically A rifle that fires ultra powerful ammunition, capable of extreme accuracy at long ranges, yet can defy the laws of physics to allow conrolled and rapid fire from the hip with little recoil, easy for even children to shoot well. And it should be available on practically every street corner, with not even a background check to slow you down, posessing firepower worthy of the title "Weapon of Mass Destruction". And it should definetly have that deadly feature, thing that goes up:evil:

New production Colt 1903 Pockets--not improved, not updated, just BRAND NEW. It won't happen because originals would still sell for less than what a new one would reasonably cost to make if quality was matched up.


A purpose-built shorty M-1 Garand with integral rails/ sythetic stock utilizing the improved m-14 gas system but retaining the en-bloc clip set up over a box mag.

A CZ pistol caliber carbine which both rips off yet improves the Beretta storm.

Same combination in 10mm (naturally along with a cz 10mm)

A LeMatt replica/remake in .38/.357, .40/10mm with fully functional 20 gauge underbarrel.

the Smith and Wesson 610 ressurected.

Webleys back in production in modern calibers. (surprised the Chinese haven't looked into this given some of the other replica designs they have been doing)

How about a compact/concealable 5.7x28 handgun? C'mon FN!

Hmm, from a 4 inch barrel, the 5.7x28 handloaded with a 40gn bullet will make about 1750 fps for about 280 ft-lbs. Use an 35gn Vmax and get 1892 fps and about the same energy. Going to 3 inches, velocity drops to 1600 fps, and at 2 inches your at 1100 fps and under 100 ft-lbs

I'm still drooling over the idea of a modernized top-break like Vash's revolver from Trigun:

http://www.sidkit.com/vashgun_img/vgunan.gif

Beretta makes the Laramie in .45LC (http://www.theothersideofkim.com/index.php/ggps/8771/) so I know a break-top can be made to handle the stress. I've always liked top-breaks, it's just that they tend to be so friggin' fugly.

I don't care so much about a replica of Vash's gun above (okay, I do, but...), I just want a top-break in the style of a "normal" revolver and in a caliber less wimpy than .32 or obscure SASS loads.

Would also like a doublestack semi and a carbine in 7.62x25. At least that'd be moderately useful as a cheapo-surplus (for the time being, anyway) blaster and poor man's FN 5.7 - unlike the myriad of .17HMR revolvers Taurus is producing for some reason (seriously, what is the use of a .17 out of a snubnose?)

Annnd last but not least, a new production 7.62x54R semi-auto rifle. I can't imagine anything more beautiful in my mind than a sleek black $250 Saiga paired with some hard-hitting 10-cents-a-round surplus 54R. Hello, poor man's FAL. Extra bonus points if it's styled after an M1A.

Oh - and a Hi-Point in .22LR. C'mon Hi-Point, make me a reliable, reasonably accurate brick of a .22 and price it under $100...

My list is short:

2) The second one they already make, I just wish they could import the semi auto MP5.

Tactical Ninja, the Trigun mockup is pretty cute. Not break top, but the Mateba unica six comes darn close, and pbvious served as inspiration. Plus it's a semi-auto revovler. How cool is that?

Introducing the new .357 auto-magnum! I wiiiiish.

A semi-auto .357 magnum pistol that isn't a brick like the Desert Eagle and uses double-stack mags. C'mon, if the Bren machinegun (as well as a host of others) can reliably cycle a rimmed round, then we outta be able to make a gun that can do the same thing now.

^Same goes for a tactical carbine.

Someone's already tried the .22 cal M-1 carbine (an Iver johnsen I think). it was adorable and I really wanted to snag it at $275 (The guy told me upfront that he would lower the price if I wanted it, but that's what was marked). I hadn't the money or background information for it at the time though.

LET THE CHINESE EXPORT GUNS TO US AGAIN!!!!!! THEY UNDERSTAND THAT THEY SHOULD PRODUCE WHAT WE WANT AND BE CHEAP ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!:cuss:

An American made SKS with detechable magazines chambered in .308, .223, or 7mm. IT'd have to use longer magazines and a longer action, not to mention the bolt might not handle the larger loads...But I'd love to see something along these lines for hunting. Not to mention that a well made SKS can be very accurate.

I'd want to see a mod on a Ruger 100 that was in a .40 caliber revolver round (like .41 Magnum, but it's obsolete), that was break-open and had a better cylinder release.
Like this one:

I'd also like to see an AK in .30-06 that's not a Saiga.
Oh, this is one:

And a Mauser C96 that was fed from a 30-round banana clip and had the M3 Grease Gun's flash hider.
Hey, lookit this:
http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa149/Nolo_photo/MauserK.30Carbine.jpg
Okay, it's in a funny caliber, and I'd never want to shoot it like that (I'm lying, of course, there isn't a gun I won't shoot, but .30 Carbine fully-auto in a pistol!), but that can always be changed with my handy-dandy friend Microsoft Paint!

I too would like to see a single-stack, XD sub-compact. It just seems like it would be perfect. Why hasn't Springfield thought of this? :banghead:

Would also be nice if there was a way to make an AK with a separate lower and upper (instead of the wobbly dustcover) so as to allow a top rail and/or moving the rear sight back.

I would like to see more pistols produced which are chambered in 10mm, especially in polymer frames like the Tanfoglio Witness Pro Carry. One of my favorite cartridges. I would also like to see more Makarov clones like the CZ83 in modern production. Would love to see a modern production pistol chambered in 7.62x25 Tokarev and/or .30 Luger. Would love to see both the 10mm and the 7.62x25 Tokarev developed and researched, and applied on the tactical side. Same goes for the 5.7x28
Other trends I like that I am seeing is that alot of manufacturers are marketing better towards women with respect to the finish of the firearm, grips, accessories, CCW gear, etc. Its a great trend.
As far as long guns, I would love to see more development in foldable carbines like the Kel Tec SUB2000 and SU16. I would love to see more carbines in .40SW and .45ACP, like the Beretta CX4, etc.
This is the stuff I like, I am seeing more of it, and its a good thing.

- An accurate pistol in .17 Hornady Mach 2
- A seven shot Ruger GP100 .357
- A semi-auto only version of the Steyr AUG Para 9mm (Actually I'd like a legal 3 round burst on it, but alas...)

I think in rifles people prefer the .17 HMR or the .22 WMR, so the .17 HM2 is losing out there, but I think the real niche for the .17 HM2 is the Plinking/Target Pistol. The .17 HM2 is far more accurate than the .22LR and the dimensions are the same. I know Ruger tried to create a Mark III conversion and failed because something wasn't strong enough, so it's time to make something that works.

-If not a simplified 1911, a skinnier Sig 220 would also be GREAT!

-Affordable reproduction Lugers

-More single stack handguns (Walther PPS is a step in the right direction, too bad it is so ugly)

-Glocks with 1911 Grip Angles (I know there are other brands out there that are similar to Glocks with the 1911 angle, but I don't particularly like the look of other polymer offerings, and I actually like the simple, business like "look" of Glocks, as unbelievable as that may sound.)
