    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.

    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. :) )

    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.

    Old Model Blackhawks, without the idiotic conversion action, safty warning, or any other lawyer inspired b.s..

    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.

    That .22WMR pistol that held 30 rounds.

    HK P9/P9S series.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
