Brand new, or variation on existing, chime in.

Right now, I'd *really* like to have this rifle:

-T/C Icon "Original Medium Action Rifle" as a starting point, with it's Walnut & Carbon Fiber laminated lightweight stock, and all other features of this rifle
-But chambered in .260 Rem,
-22" blued bbl instead of 24" blued bbl,
-With a traditional metal & engraved hinged floorplate of the Icon "Classic", rather than the detachable box mag of the "Original Medium Action Rifle".

Elite 6500 2.5-16x42mm in Warne Maximas....... Dude. Duuuuuuuude.

How about the Magpul masada/bushmaster ACR? That would be nice. Oh, a kel-tec RFB in .260 would be awesome too.:D

June 4, 2009, 06:33 PM
The Remington MSR or a JP Manual rifle in .308 (or .260, or .300WM, or 7mm RM) made for only 1k-2k.

Dr. Tad Hussein Winslow
June 4, 2009, 06:33 PM
Oh yeah, and an RFB, bigtime; you got that straight, Jack! :)

Educate me, what kinda M14 is that?

What does the "K" do?

June 4, 2009, 06:40 PM
Another rifle, the Cobb MCR, but gas piston, and no buffer tube. And CHEAPER, the only one i have ever found was a mere pittance, $6,000.

Dr. Tad Hussein Winslow
June 4, 2009, 06:42 PM
OK, if "cheaper" qualifies as "new", then gimme a Barrett 82 for "about tree fiddy". :D


June 4, 2009, 06:46 PM
:evil: The M14K, a miniature M60. (http://www.crazyhorserifles.com/m14k%20article.htm) :evil:


June 4, 2009, 06:49 PM
So a M14k is a full-auto variant?

P.B.Walsh So a M14k is a full-auto variant?

It's design is all about the functional selector switch, but it can be
had in semi auto if you want, that is if SEI ever builds them again...

Forget the rifle, I want to see more WOMEN like that made!

June 4, 2009, 06:59 PM
Winchester Model 52.....chambered for 17hmr with stainless barrel.

June 4, 2009, 07:13 PM
CZ carbine in 6.8spc or 6.5 Grendel from the factory.

June 4, 2009, 07:15 PM
wouldn't mind owning a left bolt accuracy international aw. keeping fingers crossed.

June 4, 2009, 07:17 PM
Dr. Tad Hussein Winslow Forget the rifle, I want to see more WOMEN like that made!

That's Sonja Sommers, vice president of Smith Enterprise, test
firing one of SEI's M14K guns that she barreled and head spaced.

June 4, 2009, 07:17 PM
I'd like to see one if those M14k's with a Sage or Troy stock.

June 4, 2009, 07:23 PM
CZ or SAVAGE, GET OFF YOUR A!@#$S , AND make the 5mm mag allready.
Savage, go ahead and get off of that custom shop rig, and come out with
the centerfire version that you have been testing; the 5-35c.
Anybody; a semiauto, tube fed version rimfire, in 22short. same thing in a 17, either hmr or mach 2. since they are soft tips, you do not have to worry about
being tube fed.

June 4, 2009, 07:28 PM
I still want a Colt Lightning copy in 44 magnum. Just for the hell of it.

June 4, 2009, 07:54 PM
P.B.Walsh I'd like to see one if those M14k's with a Sage or Troy stock.
A SAGE stock for the K gun is in the works :evil:

H2O Man, make so a poor man can buy it (1k), not 3k. :)

June 4, 2009, 08:19 PM
Marlin 62 Levermatic rifle in .30 Carbine.

Yeah, I know, not terribly practical for a lot of things.

But it was the most popular version of the Model 62.

It's a fun gun.

June 4, 2009, 08:21 PM
I'd also like to see Remington come out with a 700 in 22lr., that would be my next buy, of course it's have to be compatible with all the aftermarket goodies. Just imagine a Mcmillian A5 or AICS on a .22lr!!!!

Texas Brigade Armory makes a .22lr that LOOKS like a 700, but is a Ruger 77/22 with a McMillian A1 HTG, which is very nice, but it's $2900 (their M40 is around $3500 to put it
in comparison)!!!!!

June 4, 2009, 08:28 PM
I really want a modern 7.62x25 carbine! Maybe a Saiga or Kel-tec.

June 4, 2009, 08:34 PM
I want the Marlin Camp 45 to come back (with the 1911 magazines.)

If Glock were to make rifle, would it look like the Benelli Vinci or Rem 877 shotgun?

I want Iver Johnson to come back & make the M1 Carbine 22 LR. Maybe Fun Guns 22 will make a stock kit someday.

I would like to see Henry Repeating Arms make a .410 lever action. :cool:

I would like to see Timberwolf .357 pump to come back.

June 4, 2009, 08:37 PM
A reliable MP5 semi auto clone that costs less than $1000.If a PTR can cost $1000 my can't a MP5 (H&K94) clone that is reliable?

quote7.62x25 carbine

also a reliable Russian burp gun clone is needed ,the ones around I have heard are jamomatic,witnessed it myself at the range.

June 4, 2009, 08:52 PM
P.B.Walsh H2O Man, make so a poor man can buy it (1k), not 3k. :)

I wish I had that power :)

June 4, 2009, 08:57 PM
An FN P90 chambered for a 7mm wildcat, parent case being the 5.7x28mm, with heavy-for-caliber bullets wielding subsonic velocities.

An American-made Sturmgeweher clone in 7.62x39 which accepts AK mags.

A semi-auto FNC 80.

1918 BAR clone chambered in .308 which accepts M14 mags.

June 4, 2009, 09:11 PM
-Remington factory varmint barrels with an MTU straight taper contour.

-The 700 with a fluted barrel in above stated contour in .223/.22-250/.243/.260/7mm-08 with a 1:8 twist.

-More caliber options in the Sendero SFII line, and a 1:8 twist on the 7mm calibers.

And that is just big green.

June 4, 2009, 09:13 PM
I would like to see a pistol caliber bullpup carbine, and I'll take that fer bout "tree fiddy". Kel Tec says they are coming out with one but it'll probably be in the year 2 tree fiddy. :D

Can we add a pistol? I want someone to build a .45ACP Luger.

EDIT to add: I'd like a .458Lott chambered Winchester Model 1895...and I'll probably have more to add tomorrow.

June 4, 2009, 09:19 PM
I could do with a Knights M-110

June 4, 2009, 09:20 PM
A Browning FN action in .260 remington. I know Kimber makes a mauser action .260 but the bolt handle is just terrible looking.

June 4, 2009, 09:29 PM
I want cheaper versions of Sharps and the BLR made. A scaled down Remington High-wall in a bizarre caliber would be fun too :D

June 4, 2009, 09:34 PM
I could do with a Knight M-110

They make em' already, don't they? They just cost an arm and a leg.

June 4, 2009, 09:44 PM
More modern rifles in 6.5x55 and Remington to offer 8x57 as a option in their rifles every year! Not just 2004 700 classic. And for domestic ammo makers to stop being punks and load these at their full potential. I don't have to worry as I handload them. I have a 8mm that pushes 150gr at 3000 fps and a 196gr at 2600. Just feel that more people would appreciate them if they were loaded to modern levels with modern rifles.

Behold the Kel Tec MP 40 :rolleyes:

Okay, my MS paint skills are lacking, but you get the idea. I dont know why but the stick magazine in front of the grip makes all the difference for me.

"Kel-schmisser" :eek:

June 4, 2009, 10:00 PM
wouldn't mind owning a left bolt accuracy international aw. keeping fingers crossed.

Ditto. And/or a left-hand version of that new .338 bolt rifle Barrett just introduced.

Also, a left-handed Barrett M95.

A quality American made Dragunov SVD.

More options for 6.5 Grendels--something like an XCR or SCAR-L.

A SIG P228 9mm in SAO. And a SIG P220SAO Stainless Match in 10mm Auto.

And if Ruger would take that .375 Ruger case and neck it down to 7mm, .308, and .338 caliber, offering rifles so chambered available in left-hand, that would be super. Or Remington could do the same thing shortening the Ultra Mag case to fit a standard length action. Anything to get a line of non-belted standard length magnums out of a commercial rifle/ammunition manufacture.

In response to post #41

June 4, 2009, 10:03 PM
Kel-Tec SU-30 Carbine

Kel-Tec SU-45 Win Mag

Both would use GI 30 Carbine magazines.

June 4, 2009, 10:04 PM
Smith and Wession 500 rifle. Take the revolver and put a stock on it.

June 4, 2009, 10:21 PM
Bornagainbullseye, where did Jesus say that?Luke 22:36, oops Gondo beat me and I didn't see it.

June 4, 2009, 11:08 PM
Thanks, I knew Jesus was cool. In 22:38 the disiples say they have two swords, He (Jesus) says "Thats enough".

Mabey that confirms the saying "Two is one, and one is none".

Jesus Christ is cool. :)

June 4, 2009, 11:22 PM
Jesus Christ is cool.True, but thou must remember that he did not condone the use of violence, they were only to be used in defense of the disciples.

Dr. Tad Hussein Winslow
June 4, 2009, 11:26 PM
Oh yeah, I also want a pump .45 colt with a short 16" barrel, p-grip wood stock, & optics rail.

Oh, and a bullpup'ed format Kriss Super V, .45 acp, SBR'd (12"), suppressed and full-auto, too, of course.

How about a plain, high-quality .50 BMG & .416 turnbolt under $800. Savage, maybe?

Of course, Kel-Tec RFB in .260 rem, 22-24"

An FN P90 chambered for a 7mm wildcat, parent case being the 5.7x28mm, with heavy-for-caliber bullets wielding subsonic velocities.

That sounds interesting, too.

Phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range.

June 4, 2009, 11:30 PM
In responce to post 49, I know He didn't condone violence, because He stopped the fighting on the Mount of Olives, and healed the servant of the preist's ear, He wanted peace for all, I bet He'd support CCP's. :)

Because you don't carry to hurt people, you carry to prevent crime. If we could all perform miracles, then we wouldn't need CCW's, but we can't. Hope I didn't give the wrong impression.

June 4, 2009, 11:33 PM
How about a bolt action .45-70 with a heavy octagonal (ie. Sharps) style 30 to 34" barrel. Naturally a bipod would be mandatory OEM equipped.

One thing I'd like to see is for "progressive" rifleing to make its way to production rifles.

June 4, 2009, 11:35 PM
What's the point in progressive rifleing?

June 4, 2009, 11:44 PM
I want an over/under in 12g on top and a mag fed .22 mag bottom. In Rugers target grey w/hogue stock. :evil: OK let me have it! :evil:

June 4, 2009, 11:46 PM
Savage 99 remade. It should come in a sporter version and "tactical" version. The tactical version needs a 18'' bull barrel, 30 round removable mags, could accept STANAG mags and the .308 version could accept FAL or M1A mags. Needs to be all black too! Oh and a built in Picatinny rail and fiber optic sights. A Browning BLR in this version could work too.

June 4, 2009, 11:54 PM
What's the point in progressive rifleing?

Not 100% sure but i think it's either to allow faster twist rate with less bullet damage or it improves stabilty overall because the bullet gets spun up more uniformly.

I thought of another one, though it's not a rifle. Return of the PYTHON!!!!

June 5, 2009, 12:08 AM
New Model 70 Featherweight in .260 Remington.

June 5, 2009, 12:54 AM
Oh, and a bullpup'ed format Kriss Super V, .45 acp, SBR'd (12"), suppressed and full-auto, too, of course.ANY bullpup in a pistol caliber!
What's the point in progressive rifleing?It is supposed to increase barrel life, but I have heard at the cost of accuracy because the bullet has to conform to the changing twist. I rather like the partially rifled bore used by the Dragunov, seems like a novel design to me. It starts as a smoothbore and is rifled about 66% of the remaining length. Both designs cost a bit more, gain twist is substantially more for the average barrel.

June 5, 2009, 12:56 AM
It's buy one get one free day at THR!

June 5, 2009, 12:59 AM
More semi auto options in .22 wmr. I know remington has one but I'd like to see other companies do em.

Ignition Override
June 5, 2009, 01:10 AM
A Lee-Enfield "Jungle Carbine" which shoots cheap 7.62x54R.

An M-1 Garand which shoots whichever ammo, similar to .308 or 30-06 at only $.25/round, but no corrosion goes into gas tubes.
Why? I will not buy pricey (US) ammo and we just visited the (101st Airborne's) foxholes near Bastogne, Belgium a few weeks ago. We were on a very interesting tour given by a superb Flemish guy (check 'Youtube': "Reg Jaans Bastogne"). Well worth it.

June 5, 2009, 01:24 AM
I'd settle for that ArmedBear!!!! C'mon Winchester... You've already sold two.

June 5, 2009, 01:43 AM

7.62x25 carbine

June 5, 2009, 12:58 PM
I think Sarduy is on a similar track. I'd like an updated SKS. Modern optics mounting, better/more accurate barrel, better stock, updated trigger, AK style mags, but maintaining the top bolt design.

June 5, 2009, 01:03 PM
7.62x25 carbine

I second that!

June 5, 2009, 01:55 PM
7.62x25mm Mp-5 clone

Winchester 70 with Ghost Ring sights and mag capacity up to 10 rounds.
In .308, stainless and black composite stock (they have this part down).

June 5, 2009, 02:03 PM
How bout a PS-90 in a decent pistol caliber like 9mm.

June 5, 2009, 02:06 PM
m1 garand in .223/5.56 with 15rd enblocks with similar accuracy.

June 5, 2009, 02:14 PM

AR-15 in 6.5x47 Lapua.

I'd like a drilling in .358 win x .358 Win over 12 ga.

Maybe just a stacked drilling in

.358 Win

June 5, 2009, 02:43 PM
An American-made Sturmgeweher clone in 7.62x39 which accepts AK mags.



June 5, 2009, 03:09 PM
I'd like an American made FN FNC since the Belgian ones cost more than $2k. Mags are already cheaper since they can use M16/AR15 mags.

June 5, 2009, 03:28 PM
american made sks
kel tec RFB
sks in .223 or 5.45x39
hi point carbine in .45
remington in 8mm mauser
modern handgun in 7.62x25

June 5, 2009, 03:44 PM
Lots of good suggestions.

Here are mine:

American made HK94 type 9mm carbine but with full length hand guard( HK91/93).

Winchester 52 Sporter.

American made Mp-44 clone( semi of course ) in the original caliber.

June 5, 2009, 03:53 PM
How about starting to put iron sights on bolt rifles again. I aint buyin one without em.

June 5, 2009, 04:44 PM
CCSniper, Remington does make an 8mm Mauser, and I mean the model 700, not just the 798 Zastava models.

June 5, 2009, 04:47 PM
How about just a plain old newly manufactured WWII BAR.

June 5, 2009, 05:28 PM
Springfield Armory AR15.

June 5, 2009, 05:39 PM
USA-made, Weatherby Mark V, 9-lug variant, blued steel, 24", #2 barrel chambered in .270 Win. I had one in STS, and like a fool I sold it. :banghead:


June 5, 2009, 05:54 PM
Remington made!!! As in past tense! And only made them for 1 year. 2004 m700 classic. You cannot buy a new Remington even the 798 in 8x57! Or I would have one. Waiting on a cheap 700 long action to fall in my lap to build one at the moment

Col. Plink
June 5, 2009, 07:30 PM
+1 on HiPoint .45acp carbine (supposed to come out 'this year', whichever year you ask them).

Ruger would do nicely in the same round. 40's and 9's, no 45. What gives?

SKS .223 sounds cool...

June 5, 2009, 07:42 PM
How about a 7.62x54R AK that isn't a PSL? I'd settle for anything semi auto in that caliber for </= $500.

I'm really surprised there aren't more options as to x54R semis, with the popularity of Mosin Nagants, and the price and availability of the ammunition.

June 5, 2009, 07:54 PM
A 9mm Glock Carbine that takes Glock handgun magazines and is ergonomic (unlike the Sub 2000, Hipoint, etc.).

A Remington Model 7 with an integral scout scope mount and back up iron sights.

Zach S
June 5, 2009, 07:56 PM
I'd like an AR15 in .45 that used new in the cosmoline Thompson magazines. One that looks more like an AR than a LaFrance does.
