What kind of new rifle option do you hope hits the market soon?

The poll choices are based in part on my own personal want list. I'd love to hear what other like and see if there's some sort of majority opinion.

I think there's a lot of room in the market to support a few more cartridges based on 223 that will fit in an ar15 magwell

Huh, That's an area I thought had kind of been beat to death.

Also, Ruger makes the new American Rifle Predator .22-250 with a 1:8 twist, so one of the poll options is already here.

I would second the RMR-30, I've been waiting for Kel-Tec to produce the first one for 3 years... At this point I'd rather Ruger commandeer the design and actually get one out the door.

The Ruger American Predator in .22-250 is actually 1:10 as per their site:

Whups, my bad, I could have sworn that Ruger twisted it the same as their .223.

Btw, this thread got me researching the RMR-30 again and apparently the name has been changed to CMR-30. Also, the projected release date is Q4 2014... although it should be noted that past projected release dates have included Q4 2013, Q2 2013, Q4 2012... etc.

I would like to see more bolt action rifles that come pre-threaded for muzzle devices and sporting stocks that give a proper cheek weld with a scope mounted.

I would like an RA compact in 223/5.56 with a 1/8 twist and a threaded barrel with a magazine that works. I'll settle for a magazine that works.

Of the choices listed in the poll, the only one I find interesting is the 22-250 with a faster twist. One project (of many) I have in mind is re-barreling a Remington 788 with a faster twist 22-250 barrel and see how it performs with VLD bullets.

Another project is to chamber a 308 AR in 22 CHeetah which is a 308 necked down to 22, using a fast twist barrel to shoot VLD bullets at some pretty fast velocities

I would really love to see a .357 pump like the Remington 25 Carbine or the Timber Wolf. I would prefer the design of the 25. It is sleek, self-contained, is a take down and has a great balance point.

Something like this please:

A lefthanded bolt-action .22 rifle with a tubular magazine.
Mossberg made 201 of them in 1937-38 and nobody has done it since.

I was going to post something very similar; I want Weatherby to release a Vanguard S2 with threaded muzzle. The already have the best stock shapes and triggers, now all they need is a few models with threaded muzzles.

1) cheaper rifles.

2) also, a semi auto 357 carbine that takes a 10+ round banana mag patterned after a 22lr mag. pattern it off the deerfield. pattern it off the m1 carbine. make it a whole new design, I don't care. just gimme gimme gimme.

3) (and I know this runs counter to wish #1) anything that is not another ar15 or a copy of the savage axis/ruger america/etc school of thought.

Fiddleharp, if it doesn't have to be tube fed, cz makes a nice lefty bolt 22. I love mine.

Laphroaig

I don't think that's the only variant of a fast twist 22-250 they offer either.

How are the votes possibly distributed across such disperse areas? And who are the fools saying "enough"? Man I hate gun consumers; simultaneously wanting everything at the same time, knowing full well they'll only buy what they already own and prefer

I'd love to actually be able to find .338 Fed. ammo locally.

I'd like to see someone come up with a way for mass-produced bold-actions to actually have a smooth action. Most of them range from ok to terrible. I realize I shouldn't be expecting it on less expensive rifles, but that's why I ultimately went with a Ruger American Rimfire over an Anschutz for my daughter. The Anschutz will always be worth more, but I'm not sure she could operate the one I handled as soon. For a $1000 22, I expect to get more than a pretty stock.

A high quality 22-250 walking/calling varmint rifle around 6 lbs as opposed to brain dead firearms manufacturers who are stuck on the idea that a varmint rifle has to weight 10 lbs. Wake up and get out of the 60's folks.

I couldn't agree more! I was beginning to wonder if I was just built funny.

As for what I would like to see, i'd like a lightweight takedown in a smaller centerfire (.243 or so) that's not "tactical". Something good for a pack.
