    Yes they have per my all original Colt 1911A1 series 70 in 9mm built around 1974. Runs flawlessly.

    I would love to see the IMI Timberwolf 357 pump rifle brought back long enough that I could pick up a pair. One in stainless and one blue!

    I just need the tools. And space for them.

    Wouldn't mind seeing a semi version of this for about $250-300:

    In no particular order:

    • A good, safe, reproduction of the Mauser C/96. A short-barrel rifle version would be nice too.
    • A return of the Marlin Camp-45, sans the woes that were inherent in the design.
    • A light-handling lever-action in .50 AE or .500 S&W that isn't an expensive custom affair that takes a while to deliver. The latter exists in that form, the former doesn't, as far as I know.
    • Something 5.7x28mm that isn't plastic and has a decent trigger.
    • A new, commercial M1 Carbine that isn't garbage. (Admittedly, I haven't tried the newer Inlands, so can't comment on that, but will likely shortly. The rest were utter trash.)
    • Something modern centerfire revolver, that is top-break, and double-action.
    • A semi-auto clone of the Stechkin just for fun.

    A carbine similar to the 10/22 and the Ruger .44 Mag carbine in 9mm that actually would be reliable. I had a Ruger PCC and it just didn't feel as svelte as a 10/22 style carbine. I was greatly disappointed with it, felt clunky and awkward.

    You would need some sort of delayed action to trim down the PCC. That way you could trim down the weight of the bolt.

    Personally I love my PCC. Dead nuts accurate, hasn't had a bobble in thousands of rounds.

    Easy solution. "Upgrade" to the Taurus style lock in the hammer.

    R51 style hesitation lock would work.

    A straight wall .277 caliber carbine cartridge optimised for 16-18 inch barrels, think .30 carbine but lean and clean.

    I've said this in other threads. Ruger Speed/Security Six. Polymer version with cam action trigger. Six shooters in .38/.357, 9mm. Seven shot in .327/.32 mag.

    Been a long time since Ruger had a mid-sized revolver.

    I'd like Ruger or Henry to build pump-action rifles in .357 and .44 magnum ... their versions of the IMI Timberwolf.

    I want someone to make a faithful reproduction of a Webley Mark VI in 455 Webley using modern steel alloys properly heat treated. It should also included a second cylinder shaved for 45 ACP on moonclips. The modern steel alloys would keep it from shooting loose with standard 45 ACP ammo.

    All of these are nice ideas. I'm a simple man, though. I just want somebody to build me a pump 30-30, a la 760 remington or the old savage model. Twenty inch barrel, good iron sights, sling studs built in, and decent wood. Drilled for scope mounts or a peep. Price it for the working man and you can't tell me it wouldn't sell. It'd make a heck of a truck gun, and be great for deer drives.

    Oh well, feller can dream I reckon.

    Singlestack 4 inch 1911 that's slimmed down considerably for a 5.7x28. I'd love to see this one super angular, like something designed in the 80s trying to look futuristic.
    Doublestack 1911 in 5.7x28 with built in compensator.
    1911 in 224 boz
    More forward mag target pistols, in various calibers.
    A glock 19 sized glock in 25acp for hilarious capacity.
    Affordable free pistols that aren't russian.
    Bolt action 9mm rifle that can take clips like old lugers.
    A 50cal "brush gun" but the ammo is loaded with those round nose solids from hornady. extra points if its styled like a sharps, but with a 16 inch octogon barrel and about a 6 inch muzzlebrake that somehow looks great and works better.

    Basically "how to bankrupt a gun company" in a post. :rofl:

    Iron sights on everything, so that a rifle is ready to use right out of the box.

    Why do I think this would make a great first lever gun for CZ? Am I crazy?
