    Heck.. I’d like to see Ruger resurrect the Deerfield and roll it out in .327 FM and .357 Mag. I’d snap both of those up in a heart beat to go with my .44 Mag version.

    And while I’m in LaLa Land why not do the same in the 96 lever versions.

    I’ll shut up now and quietly sip my bourbon while the adults talk.

    In a just world it would be an 1894 in .327mag [:)]
    Most likely will be some version of the LCP.
    But a PC Carbine in .380 or a similar oddball would be possible.
    But, it's Ruger, so it could just be an oddball cartridge matched to an existing design. So, maybe .41ruger (like 10.4x30 os such like).

    I don’t think anyone saw the Ruger 57 coming, so anything could happen.

    A nice mini action bolt gun would be nice, something from 9mm size to 223/x39

    Ruger's entire focus the past few new guns has been to grab a share in the market. They pumped out the Max 9 to get some of the Sig 365's share as everyone else is doing, they did the Wrangler to get some of Heritage's business, they made the 57 to undercut FN's Five Seven on price, so what's left? If it's a revolver it'll be a centerfire variant of the Wrangler in .32 Mag and .38 Special, maybe even .45 ACP/Colt. If not that probably a pump shotgun or lever action .22.

    I've emailed them several times over the years for an American bolt gun in 9mm. I think it'd make a nice light weight 100 yard varmint/pinker gun

    I've been sucked in and tempted to get the .350 legend but I don't really want to gt into another cartridge... at least at this point in time. On paper, the ballistics makes more sense than 9mm but it would take so much more time and money to be vested with 350L.


    Sadly, I think that LCP Max is it. I've never liked the .380 much and if I was going to get into another caliber it certainly would not be .380. I realize it's popular and it had a surge a few years ago but I don't see it as cartridge that should be growing. With the sizes of the micro 9s now I don't see much point in a micro 380 blowback. I'd rather see .32ACP gain market and the 380 fade.

    Been saying since it came out they could do a Ruger 357 version, a single stack .357 Mag. That grip frame is long enough it could accomodate .357 Mag and 7.62x25, both of which are exceptionally long and not adapted much in modern pistols as a result of that unusual length.

    Since the LCP isn't a blowback, the LCP Max won't be a blowback either.

    As I've stated before, I'd love a Wrangler in .32 H&R (7 shot) or .38 Spl (6 shot)

    Interesting, if it was reliable, I might try it.

    Not literally anything @ $489.
    First guess: Ruger stamped Marlin
    Second guess: polymer something

    Frog beat me to it!

    Seriously, for such a simple and strong design I don’t understand why some companies can’t produce a solid working version of it. I know black polymer toys sell, but some of us love steel and wood.

    I hear you on the M-1 carbine. I don't think anyone can build a good replica at a price point that would sell. I'm seriously looking at the Aero survival rifle to fill that PCC itch. If I didn't own a 43 Inland I would already have one.

    There's a video by Ian of Forgotten Weapons where he discusses with Ken Hackathorn how the magazine is what dooms the M1 Carbine. Ken says GIs treated the magazines as expendable and replaced them as often as they could, and the carbine ran fine that way.

    Not surprising as it was a wartime expedient kludge.

    Receiver on the Carbine was designed in an era where the labor hours were far cheaper than the metal milled. Which makes the thing a complicated proposition in modern times. Unless you start monkeying with the internals. And we know where that got Plainfield and Universal (both of whom were economizing by using war surplus parts, not new made).
    Answer the question with inexpensive materials and expensive labor hours and you get the Ruger PC.
    Or, the Marlin Camp for a different way to skin the cat.

    I like it! It's like a late 1940's European semiauto rifle

    Since Ruger did a great job improving the KelTec P3at, I wouldn't mind seeing Ruger's take on these:
    - Mp5 pistol or carbine
    -KelTec Sub2000
    -Winchester Trapper Carbine
    -Armalite/Charter Arms/Henry AR7 .22 Survival Rifle
    - H. Koon Co Snake Charmer .410 (as an "other firearm", not shotgun)
    - Mark IV .22 pistol w/ integral silencer that doesn't look as butt ugly as the Silent SR ISB
    - MagPul Folding Pistol
    - polymer Ruger #1 in .50bmg
