    Common, this is a "dream" thread.

    LOL!!! Yup! My "dream" of a resurrected Colt Lawman for example. Assuming Colt even cares about making economy revolvers again - which I doubt - there were FAR more popular guns in their lineup than the beleaguered Lawman series. It debuted with the Mk.III action and disappeared with the Mk.V action. A one-two act that never made it to Broadway. ;)

    But, I can dream.

    Another vote for a Mk IV sized Webley. If they could swing the .38 Special that’d be great.

    Some of the old small frame .22 revolvers. H&R produced some dogs but also some gems. Likewise Iver Johnson and High Standard (actually I don't remember any real duds from HighStandard). It isn't that nothing is available now but very little in the way of economical .22 double actions.
    My other wish is for a Tweener.....something smaller than a J frame and bigger than a NAA mini revolver in .22lr.

    I'm thinking a top break with a short cylinder. Maybe in 9mm or 5shot .45acp

    anything mainstream, reliable and affordable (i.e. $300 max) in 32long, plus more ammo in the market to match. two less expensive platforms that immediately come to mind from decent makers are the ruger wrangler and taurus856. no charter arms, i had a c.a. revolver chambered in 9mm, briefly, p.o.c. to save on production costs i am not wishing for a 327/32mag piece that also chambers 32long.

    i got a 327mag barrel for my bond arms derringer. i only shoot 32long out of it. being a two shot derringer it slows down the burn rate of my precious and limited 32long ammo stash. 32long is great.

    Can't say I've had terrible issues with the two H&R's I own, tho the cylinder pin on the Young America does have tendency to jump over the retaining latch with a heavy recoiling load. The biggest issue with the H&Rs has been the post war revolvers, seems the 732's and 632's didn't hold timing well. The pre war (1941 and prior) revolvers seemed to hold up. Not guns you put 200 rds thru every weekend tho.

    We do need a modern, quality reproduction of the Rossi Princess. Just in today's world it can't be the Princess, it'll have to be the Non-Binary.

    3" 681
    3" 650 7-shot stainless J-frame .22 WMR
    4" 651 7-shot stainless J-frame .22 WMR

    And I would like to see a full range of .32 caliber revolvers from S&W. 6-shot J-frames in alloy and steel, 8-shot L-frames in .327 Magnum, etc.

    The S&W in 327 Magnum. If they wanted to make more in 327 though...I guess I wouldn't be opposed.

    Same goes for Colt.

    The whole H&R line!

    Not that they are anything truly special, but they worked decently well and kept the price of the better names more reasonable.

    Kind of just another trigger lock thread. Even the OP admonished against it and then promptly made it relevant in the next paragraph. Interesting nonetheless.

    I'd love to have had a 357Max. The Dan Wesson, maybe a new model S&W on an N frame.
