    Id like a PPK in 9mm Mak. Just because. Id also like a scaled to 32 acp revolver, I'm thinking about the size of the Rossi princess. Ruger to make a GP100 in 10mm with 3, 4, and 6 inch barrels.

    The original 44 carbine had a four round tubular magazine.

    YES!
    A revolver rifle would be cool, but if you are looking for a rifle chambered in 460 or 500 mag, Bighorn Armory makes lever guns for both. Also, Ruger chambers the No1 in 460 mag from time to time. You don't hit me as a single shot kind of guy though.;)

    I would like to add to the list a Sig Sauer MCX in 10mm.

    I had a Princess! Neat idea, but the Zamak frame suffered from severe flame cutting to the top strap.
    The 10mm revolver would be great, though I'd prefer it as an 8 shot on the Redhawk frame. I would think it would accept .40 as well.

    You are correct. I did some digging around and saw a pic of one.

    Another thread tickled my brain and made me remember something I thought of years ago. A 9mm AR-7 survival rifle. More oomph than .22LR, better feeding, and in military service, meets the Geneva Convention rules for nonexpanding ammunition. Would still probably be fussy, but I thought it would have been cool.

    The Ruger Red Label that has the same weight as their Gold Label, a 12 gauge that weighed slightly over 6 pounds.

    I read an article long ago, if I recall correctly, with Bill Ruger and he was saying how he intends to expand the Red Label line with each 'Label' grade getting higher and higher.
    That plan is over now.

    Ive seen those before, not too easy to find. I actually use to have an SMC918, which is similar. But not to sound snotty, but I want it to be made by Walther

    10mm carbine that's not straight blowback (i.e. locked breech) - based on the AUG.

    C-Bob 1911 in 9x19mm under $800

    Bring back the IMI Timberwolf pump, but in a 16" barrel in .45 Colt and .357 mag and with a pistol grip - making sure there is enough meat in front of the front sight and tube mag to add threading.

    Start importing the CZ 527 Ebony Exclusive Edition so I can get one in .17 Hornet.

    Silencer that has ONE base for attachment to various guns, with multiple "main bodies" of various sizes and calibers, so that you only have to apply and pay for ONE tax stamp for multiple guns, instead of many (if the oil can suppressor can legally use this method per BATFE, why can't other silencer designers do it?). The base *is* the silencer, and the attachments are just non-regulated attachments, just like the oil filters are the attachment and the base is the silencer.

    While we're dreaming, how about a from-the-factory, well-built AR15 with a 12.5" carbon fiber barrel in 6.5 grendel, with billet skeletonized receivers. But this could be built now if you want to.

    My ultimate scout rifle so I don't have to pay to custom build it - similar to the Ruger Gunsite Scout or Savage Scout, except with a blind mag, stripper clip cutout, chambered in .260 Rem AI, 20 or 21" bbl, threaded, and much much lighter (titanium receiver, CF wrap bbl, CF fill stock by Manners preferably, etc) -- and most importantly, a special stock which has both a pistol grip for ambi MSR ergos, and a place in the buttstock to store and quickly deploy two full stripper clips from the bottom (5 rounds each).

    Above all, I wish the gent known as Nick at his YouTube channel called "Ecco Machine" would / could mass produce and sell his ultra-light folding pack carbine designs - one in .22lr and one in 9mm - go take a look - unbelievably light and innovative.

    "To start, how about a semi auto rifle with a traditional stock and not a pistol grip?"

    Someone mentioned the Mini-14, but there's also the Remington 750 (and it's predecessors, the 7400 and 742), Browning BAR, maybe others..... so even if these are discontinued (not sure), there's still lots of them for sale. So it doesn't seem like they sell all that well, and it's definitely been tried and available for many decades, so not much new there.

    Walther (Germany) doesn't even make the PPK anymore, and hasn't for a long time. FEG made all the euro-market guns up to 2010 and Walther USA (which has been feuding with Umarex, parent of Walter, GmbH), is currently trying (unsuccessfully) to bring their S&W pattern gun to market.
    I really want to like the PPK, but since the last .32 Rangers and Manhurins came off the line, they've pretty much been crap.

    I’ve heard some tremendous ideas. I too would love a bolt action carbine that shoots 9 or .38s.
    I do wish there were more rifle and shotgun double barrels. Say a 20 gauge under a 30/06.

    I’d like to see Ruger design a line of pump action rifles and carbines. Not a weak action, like the Colt Lightning or old Remington’s, but more a rotating bolt design like the Rem. 760, or an AR. My favorite calibers would be .357, .44 mag, and .45 Colt. I’d like a tubular magazine, but a rotary magazine would be a popular option. I’d install a rail and sell an option equipped with an RMR. This would be a fast, handy alternative to lever guns and be easy to design side eject. A takedown option would sell like candy. This has been a huge market gap for decades. Go make money boys!

    Wow! That's gorgeous! I'd even be pumped to see S&W reintroduce their old top breaks as .22s or .380s! They could start with a poly-frame .22 auto ejector to "test the waters." Kids love those things when the empty shells go flying out!

    I'd like to see Remington bring back the Nylon 66. I had one back in the 80s, great little rifle, and I cringe when I see the prices for used ones nowadays.

    American-made SKS rifles that take AK mags, less than $400.

    Glock 1911 (wishful thinking).

    A sub-$2000 SCAR17
