    Anyone ever thought of anything you would like to see made, brought back, or newly made?
    I for one would like to see someone make a new model 99 savage type lever gun with the rotarymagazine again. One of the Italian companies or anyone.
    Savage used to make a really cool over and under rifle/shotgun combination, I think would be really cool. say 30-30/20 guage, or 243/20 guage.

    Yeah. Browning Hi-Power. Didn't take long before several companies filled that niche though!

    A 5.56 or 7.62x39 gun with a STEN or BREN style magazine configuration.

    FN's new, improved "High Power" shares almost nothing with the original. It's bigger, heavier, has different ergos, different internals. It may turn out to be a great gun but it's a Hi Power in name only.

    I second that motion, sir! I don't own any 9mm pistols and thus don't reload for it, but would gladly buy a set of dies if I could magically somehow get a Hi-Power at a really low price.

    I'd like to see S&W do up a spiffy new snubnose revolver in .32 Magnum. Or even, to go completely into fantasy-land, .32 Long. :D

    Keep your eyes peeled on gun.deals, I snagged my Girsan MCP35 for $499 shipped! Got the last one in stock :eek:

    edit: looks like there's a seller with them in stock for $499 before shipping and taxes, at least. Cheaper than the Springfield SA35, that's for sure.

    A top-break revolver chambered in .357 Mag., available in the USA, and at a REASONABLE PRICE.

    I almost always prefer the original versions instead of the current production versions, so I'm more likely to buy an original even if someone restarts production of a classic.

    Literally all they would have to do is copy the Taurus lock and everyone would be happy.

    A 22 rimfire would be nice as well.

    On topic of savage, somebody in Italy should be making a savage navy. A volcanic pistol could also be worthwhile in a short fat case even if the internals did have to be totally different to make it work… give me a 32acp or 32sw volcanic and I’ll gladly give you a weeks pay.

    I would love to see Smith and Wesson 3rd Generation type builds. Maybe they could do a retro-run? I'm just a huge Smith and Wesson 3rd Generation fan. Solid firearms.

    Wouldn’t mind a coonan in 357 and 41 mag. But it’ll never happen. Also bring back H&R single shots.

    Smith & Wesson .38/44 - Wikipedia

    If Smith & Wesson would start building these again, I'd probably buy one. If new ones were stainless, I'd definitely buy one. :thumbup:

    They still do in .22/410 - the 42. Other companies make shotgun/rifle OU combination guns in other calibers/gauges.

    I just want a current production top break revolver that isn't a S&W No.3 repro.
