    ROA in .50 cal [or at least take a .490 RB] 50 grain of H777 in stainless and since you asked for two, make it a matched pair.

    Ok, I know it's not practical but I'd still like to have one.
    I would like to see a modern version of the LeMat like they used in the 1800's. I would have a 20ga single barrel mounted underneath and would have the pistol chambered for .357 magnum or possibly .44 magnum. It would be double action and have a 7" barrel. I'd make it with a large frame, big grips and market it towards camping, hunting or survival types.
    I would also like to see an affordable Kel Tec RFB.

    A Glock in both 7.62 x 25 and .460 Rowland.

    Runner up would be an automatic pistol that could manage to cycle 17-357 reliably, just because a tiny varmint bullet going over 2000fps out of a pistol would be absurdly cool, if impractical.

    I'll play.

    First, I want them to remake the Walch Navy .36 as a modern weapon: A twelve-shot (in one cylinder) double-action revolver chambered in .357 and available in varied barrel lengths. Frankly, I don't think it can be done since I'm pretty sure the pressure of a .357 is a lot higher than the old .36 loads were (also, the Walch was a cap-and-ball gun), so unless they can make a really strong alloy for the cylinder it would have to be comically oversize. Not sure how to handle the firing pin either, since the nipples for the percussion caps were, I think, smaller than the rear of a modern cartridge would be, and also firing pin vs. hammer impact... it would take a lot of redesigning, maybe two firing pins, I don't know. I would like it to work with a single trigger, but if it takes two triggers I'll still take one.

    Okay, it would probably end up combining all the worst features of autos and revolvers into one prohibitively expensive, hideous-looking, over-complicated abortion: Sacrificing reliability for more rounds (and still falling short of an auto), without the rapid reloading of an auto magazine or the balanced elegance of a revolver. Still, it'd be a pretty neat little abomination, a firearm version of the Spruce Goose. It would be the kind of thing that shows up in a book titled "A History of Weird Firearms" 100 years from now with an author's note saying "Like Icarus, they dreamed great dreams, but flew too close to the sun."


    ...and I've been racking my brain to conceive of an automatic pistol that I want made. All I can come up with is modularity, but the Sig P250 did that. Maybe they could do it cheaper and with more caliber and size options, but honestly I'm pretty impressed by it as is. If they could make it DA/SA instead of DAO I'd be even more impressed.

    second

    on a Glock (17L) in 7.62 x 25 Tok.

    A modern LeMat is a nice idea too.

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned a single stack sub compact 9mm Glock! I'd go with that and an SP101 in .45 ACP.

    ...with a conversion cylinder for .45ACP.

    Ruger GP100 in 10MM, stainless, with choice of 3", 4.5", and 6" bbl.

    The SP101 in 9mm, .45ACP, and 10MM all sounds cool.

    If Ruger made the five above revolvers I would borrow the money from the bank and order all five Monday.

    A Glock in 7.62x25mm

    A full-sized S&W revolver in .40S&W which would not require full-moon (or half moon) clips.

    I'm definately on board with the single stack baby Glock idea only in .40 cal. Other than that just ressurect the Colt Mustang and I'll be pretty happy.

    HK USP in 10mm, with a non-neutered UMP carbine also in 10mm, obviously able to take the USP mags, and with higher capacity magazines.

    I probably couldn't afford it, but while we're dreaming right?
