    With all the developments in firearms, I see improvements and changes that we can be made by firearm manufacturers.
    Why does'nt sig make a 17 round factory mag for the 226?
    Why is the baseplate on sig mags thin medal?
    Why did beretta discontinue so many models?
    92 compact, 92 centurion, elite I, elite II, brigadier, stainless models?
    Why did smith and wesson put locks in all of their snub nose revolvers now?
    Why does sig have tons of models of autoloaders and beretta has so few?

    I have a hundred other suggestions but not enough energy to type.

    Thank you

    A compnay isn't going to continue offering product(s) that aren't a worthwhile - profitable - compared to others in thier catalog. If they could remove model A from production since it sells a small amount compared to model B they will. That way, they can produce more model Bs and have them more readily available for the consumers.

    If some lg markets require such a feature, to remain in the market, ya gotta change with the rules. It's business.

    Looks lke Sig basically has a few models but with different variants among those models. Beretta simply concentrates on a few varaints without all the flash and bling. Why doesnt sig offer products Beretta doesn't? ;)

    I can understand changing your line to sell the most popular, but beretta has a bunch of old west style revolvers. Can they sell more of those than the ones i mentioned?

    Have you heard of Cowboy Action Shooting? one of the fastest growing shooting sports in the US.....

    If they weren't selling them... they would not be making them.

    Also, since Uberti is the manufacturer of those single actions, Beretta is simply marketing them under their name with nicer finishes and nicer wood than the Uberti counterparts. This takes nothing away from Beretta's manufacturing.
    As mentioned, there's a very large and popular market for this type of firarms with the cowboy action shooters. Will they sell more than the ones mentioned? Evidently if they were dropped to begin with the models weren't selling enough to make it financially worth while. They've been i the business for a looong time, they're th worst oldest continuing manufacturer of firearms, so I'm sure they have a wee bit more business savy than any of us here.
