    I found another British site that said 6600 sterling, almost $10,000

    My daily driver is an $800 pickup. That's out of my price range. I have yet to get a gun that costs more than my car, and I might need to do some soul-searching before I did. Maybe a new(er) car first.

    I posted this over 11 years ago:
    I'll add that I'd like one with a 5-inch barrel, too.

    Sir per me liking your response. I only liked the effort you made to find out.. I did not like the answer :) .. ouch... Lets see I could get a nice Webley-Fosbery for that... and leave enough money left over for other goodies.. That is an insane price... Plus what ever the fees for importing one over to this country... oh yeah and the 20 transfer fee my FFL will charge...

    Jim thank you for taking the time to look that up ...

    SIG P210 with ambidextrous safety and Trijicon night sights.

    I wish the Rohrbaugh R45 would have made it to production, but I’m probably alone on that one.

    Since I’m just dreaming a Seecamp 45 may work.

    "You know you can pick originals up pretty cheap and possible lower in price then what a new pistol would cost..
    And you can still shoot them with some mild precautions"

    Yeah, I do see them quite often at gun shows,,,
    The problem is finding two identical pistols in decent shape.

    Being that I am a bit OCD,,, :oops:
    They would need to be a matching pair.

    I like this, but I'd want the 3" LCR. Not the LCRx

    The 3" gun was (I'm assuming) made for the "kit gun" crowd. I think in that crowd it is mainly going to be used single action, but want a DA option.

    I want it so I can mainly use it in DA but have a SA option (because Ruger FINALLY figured out how to make DA triggers amazing!). But if for some strange reason they only produce it with no external hammer... I'd still probably get it. I want the taller adjustable sights too though...

    Are you listening Ruger!? You've already got all the engineering done!

    Mine is weirdly specific but probably within the realm of possibility...technically at least. I'd like a semi-auto version of the Beretta 93R but without the foregrip....I always thought it was one of Beretta's sharpest looking pistols. I'd be happy with it being single-action only with a frame-mounted safety where the selector switch is. I whipped up a quick photoshop of what it would look like.

    I should note that a couple of guns I wished were made, and that I requested of the manufacturers, have been produced fairly recently.

    Ruger GP100 in .44 Special.
    Henry Single Shot in .357 Magnum.

    I contacted Ruger and Henry and told them if they made those guns, I'd buy them. They did, and I did!

    But not with a polymer frame.

    Again, what was requested was a polymer framed 1911. You replied with Ruger makes the SR1911, linked to the SR, which is NOT a 1911, and then continued to double down. Some people can't admit they made a mistake.

    Ruger Mini-14 in .308 win.
    20" fluted bull barrel would be nice
    Laminated stock with some multi color
    Iron sights
    Man that would be pretty

    That was the X-GI of 1985.
    They couldn't make anything salable.

    Ok, a legitimate want: Flat-top (no fornt sight) 16" pencil carbine with a fixed A1 stock. Yeah, "niche" so, I'll just build that here soon enough. Sigh

    Ugh... That is so freakin' cool! I want it! There is no reason for that thing to be so expensive...


    That would be awesome. It'd probably look like the Ruger Gunsight with a mini action. I mean, I guess they already make these, just not by Ruger, they're called M1As. But it'd still be awesome if Ruger made one.

    The U22 Neos Carbine Kit. Feels like it never really existed because I never once saw it in stock anywhere. Also, how about a nice lightweight minimalist AR stock that doesn’t cost a fortune but has a cheek rest?

    And maybe because it’s really late, er, early, how about a lightweight functional stock for the 10/22 that adjusts for scoped or BUIS rifles that looks different. I was thinking of those clamp-on desk lamps that scissor up and down. If I can sketch these in 5 minutes how hard could it be for companies to come up with fresh ideas? Maybe all 3 are foolish, I don’t know.


    This shouldn’t be a $90 piece of hardware. Let’s add a QD socket at the tail hook and sell for $30. Or maybe they already sell this and I don’t know where to shop.

    Beck recess the attachment point at the receiver or make it a folder. I know LOP will change slightly but come on, most cheap rimfires aren’t adult size to begin with and if you choose fully up or fully down the stock should be the same length. I know I forgot the grip, sue me!

    Bolt action Rifle...Control round feed, steel external box magazine, three position safety, iron sights on the barrel, threaded muzzle, drilled & tapped, adjustable trigger.

    Choice of stock In popular calibers. Maybe they make it and I'm just not looking hard enough...
