    Both the Imbel and FN FAL, but Euro Zone bureaucrats would probably ban exporting the Belgian rifles to the US.

    HK-91 also, and similar exports probably would prevent exportation.

    Scrod 314: I had missed your comment about these: S&W 3rd. Gen handguns.

    A subject of contention on every internet gun forum since at least 2002...

    Star made a number of worthy pistols over the years. If you're a collector and haven' yet picked up a Model B and a Model BM, shame... And the Star PD is another classic. Even my old Firestars in 9mm and .40 S&W, although a little heavy, with iffy safety levers, were dead-nuts reliable, accurate, and well-made little gems.

    Still wish I'd kept the Astra Constable I inherited...

    I want a modern polymer doublestack pistol in 7.62X25. I know that new .30 self-defense round by Federal comes close, but I still want the Tok rpund.

    Oh heck. There’s lots of stuff I’d like that there’s probably no market for.

    At the top of that list is a Coonan Commander sized .327FM semi auto.

    Add a 100 gr bullet and call it the .30 Sig and it’ll sell.

    Correction:
    Any high-quality guns, no longer produced, need to be manufactured by the same original companies.

    Absolutely Not a new US imitation where the company will probably be taken over by Wall Street (etc) hedge-fund managers looking for only short-term profits.

    Actually, it's the 1968 GCA that limits imports into the US.

    Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA) Imports.
    The Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA) generally prohibits the importation of firearms, firearm frames or receivers, firearm barrels and ammunition into the United States. However, the GCA creates several narrow categories of firearms the Attorney General shall authorize for importation. In general, the GCA provides in Title 18, United States Code (U.S.C.), Chapter 44, Section 925 that firearms or ammunition may be imported into the United States: (1) for the purpose of scientific testing or research or for competition training under the provisions of Title 10, Chapter 401; (2) as unserviceable firearms, other than a machinegun as defined in 26 U.S.C. § 5844, (not readily restorable to firing condition) if imported as a curio or museum piece; (3) if the firearms or ammunition are of a type generally recognized as particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to “sporting purposes”; or (4) the firearms or ammunition were previously taken out of the United States by the person who is bringing in the firearms or ammunition. Surplus military firearms and other non-sporting firearms qualifying as “curios or relics” may be imported. 18 U.S.C. § 925 (e). Title 18 U.S.C. § 925(a)(1) provides that the prohibition on the importation of firearms, firearm frames or receivers, firearm barrels and ammunition does not apply to the importation of firearms or ammunition sold or shipped to, or issued for the use of the United States or any department or agency thereof, or any State or any department, agency, or political subdivision thereof.

    The Bren Ten. I note the Automag has risen again, like the Phoenix.
    I recall reading that 38 S&W/455 Webley are the most a top break revolver can handle.
    And how many times have companies introduced a "they oughta make" everybody says "WOW !"-and they don't sell.
