    When I bought my new old stock SIG P290RS .380 last March (build date 7/28/2015), it had already been out of production for a few years. I'm quite fond of it, and right now anyway, it gets carried more than my G42.

    I’ve got a weak spot for Savage 24s, Win 94 Trappers and Colt Woodsmans.

    I will always defer to my 1911's, love the SFS system, but my backup has always been the 9's..
    Walther P88, as with the 469....no plastic!

    Considering most of what I own is used or surplus, and I own quite a few I will list:
    • 3rd Gen S&W, or heck, put a metal backstrap on. I own a few Smiths, including a 39-2. They are nice guns. Who really cares about the safety on the slide? Beretta has done it for years
    • Star; I own a few. And whether it's one of the SA guns, or their DA/SA (I have a 30MI), they are nice. The BM is great, the Supers are great. A BM Super would have been neat.
    • SKS-- ha ha that's crazy! :rofl: But wait, hear me out. 95% are old surplus, with the remaining 5% being cheap Norinco commercial stuff. That's fine, the design is outdated for modern military use. But imagine the concept, if you will, of Zastava, maybe, reintroducing it, and in several calibers beyond 7.62x39. Heck, a factory version could go UP the ladder in caliber, not just down. You could go .308 if you like, the design is rugged enough. If you want to stay Russian, then you could go 7.62x54R with it.
    • the Savage pistol design. I have a 32, and I know they made lots of 380. I also know they made a 45 for the trials, and it came reasonably close to becoming the 1911. It would be interesting to see that design revived.

    If Uberti made a repro Paterson again, I would buy it. Maybe they'd make buyers sign a disclaimer that they wouldn't complain about shooting performance.

    1920 Savage in 250-3000. I had my Grandfather’s that I inherited from my dad. I ended up giving it to my cousin that didn’t have any of grandpas guns. That was a sweet compact little bolt action rifle. A 1906 Winchester 22, a model 12 Winchester in 20 ga. And while I’m at it I’ll take a model 42 Winchester as well:)

    Too many small hand fitted parts. The action may be butter smooth but the receiver has too many large openings (the magazine assembly for one) that it lacks the structural rigidity to handle high pressure rounds like a 308. Look at a stripped Krag receiver and you will see what I mean. A Krag in 308 would be a beautiful thing.....but it probably wouldn't work.

    If S&W started selling six shot 32 caliber J frames again I would probably pick one up. I remember when Bud’s was closing out the ultralight 327 magnums for like $400 and now I’m kicking myself for not getting one.

    I think they may still be making them, just not importing them, but i always wanted a Bersa Thunder .32.

    HK P7 is high on that list, along with the P9S 45.

    Broomhandle Mauser in 9mm (I swear you'd think Umarex would make a 22 version by now, it would sell like crazy)

    Colt Viper (saw one in rough shape this past week, still $2500)

    Colt Lightning rifles

    FN hi power

    Hmm, working the bolt & slide with .22lr might mean needing some light materials, but, it could be very cool.
    But, no sale unless we get a holster stock as well [:)]

    Pedersoli makes repros of the Colt Lightning rifles. So does .... or did .... Taurus ~ ~ ~ but I'd stay far away from those.

    I looked at the Taurus years ago along with the far more expensive repro by now defunct AWA.
