    If any gun maker ask you to design your dream revolver. What would it be? Refining their designs is O.K. Who would want or have a use for it? Give it a name.
    Mine
    #1 A old model vaquero with a swing out cylinder in 4 5/8, 5 1/2, and 7 1/2 with lanyard hook.
    Anyone who rides horses and needs a solid self defence gun. (a single revolvers are the safest for horse back.)

    Mine pretty much all exist. In no particular order:

    A USFA Flat-Top Target in .44 Special

    A Ruger Redhawk done up in 1917 livery and chambered for .50 AE (available from Hamilton Bowen)

    A 1950 S&W in .44 Special

    A 1926 S&W in .44 Special

    All but the Ruger with ivory grips, of course.

    I either can't afford any of these at the moment, or essentially cannot get them here in California. But it's fun to dream.

    A 3" round butt S&W 581 without the underlug, like the model 58, 5 shot in either 44 spec & 41 mag(might have to be 41 spec) and six shot in 357 mag.
    the only thing I would do to this would be to add a gold bead front sight.

    20 gauge?

    I'd want a 20 gauge revolver with a three- or four-round cylinder.

    A double action in .454 Casull in a size smaller than Ruger SR and larger than the SR alaskan.

    Slightly larger than an N-frame, slightly smaller than an X-frame.

    Blued, six shot.

    From what I've been told, just such a revolver was in the works. That was until the guy in charge of the program got sent to a different apartment and the "shortened X-frame" got shelved.

    Someday, someday, someone will make a packable, shootable .454 revolver...

    Maybe a mid-sized Freedom Arms DA target, competition or SD revolver in .38, .357 or .45acp. They can call it whatever they want.

    I'd like to see a beefed up Ruger Black Hawk (Hunter model) in 480 Ruger in two barrel lengths.

    My second suggestion would be a Ruger GP100 in 22LR and 10 shot cylinder. The extra shots in the cylinder (over six) is to reduce weight. It must have a good smooth trigger!

    A modernized version of a break-open .45 Colt. Russia did it with a .357, we can do it with the .45 Colt.

    3" GP-100 in .44spl, 5-shot.

    S&W 627 with full underlug and round barrel. No slab sided silliness.

    Resurrect the .357 mag redhawk.

    Change the redhawk frame to a stubby grip like on the SRH, and GP. That way you can have a fully enclosed backstrap, and all the same grips available as you have for the GP and SRH.

    Six shot, 3 inch, round butt Smith in .357. Fixed sights. Blue or stainless.

    Yeah, I know they make them. I almost aquired one, some years back.

    <sigh!>

    A blued full lug 6" gp100, cut back to 4 5/8" barrel length, and converted to a 5 shot 41 mag. Tuned by Mr. Hamilton Bowen. With some tasteful engraving, and a nice custom carry rig with some exotic leather accents.

    That'd do it for me.

    A stainless steel, no lock, one piece barrel S&W Model 58 with a three inch barrel....and, a gift certificate for 1000 rounds of 210 GR Lead semi-wadcutters loaded to about 1000 FPS would be nice.

    A 4 inch Python back in production, but without the heart-stopping sticker price.

    Yep, exactly. Except make mine in 4.0" or 4.5" bbl, and then make a 10mm to match, with moon clips. :)

    That would be cool.

    A Colt Trooper or Colt 357 would be fun to have, as well.

    Or, redo the Mateba, or make something similar that doesn't need a slide, so that it's just an awesome revolver with the bottom chamber lined up with the barrel.

    3" Top Break, strong enough for .45 Long Colt, but chambered in .45 ACP. Round butt of approximately K-Frame size. Bobbed hammer in DAO only, with ginormous front dot sight that you could pick up from a mile away.
