    The poll choices are based in part on my own personal want list. I'd love to hear what other like and see if there's some sort of majority opinion.

    I think there's a lot of room in the market to support a few more cartridges based on 223 that will fit in an ar15 magwell

    no encores or contenders, i thought this was a real poll!!!:D

    i'd like to see the 444 marlin make a comeback, along with the 338 federal.

    Huh, That's an area I thought had kind of been beat to death.

    Also, Ruger makes the new American Rifle Predator .22-250 with a 1:8 twist, so one of the poll options is already here.

    I would second the RMR-30, I've been waiting for Kel-Tec to produce the first one for 3 years... At this point I'd rather Ruger commandeer the design and actually get one out the door.

    Whups, my bad, I could have sworn that Ruger twisted it the same as their .223.

    Btw, this thread got me researching the RMR-30 again and apparently the name has been changed to CMR-30. Also, the projected release date is Q4 2014... although it should be noted that past projected release dates have included Q4 2013, Q2 2013, Q4 2012... etc.

    I would like to see more bolt action rifles that come pre-threaded for muzzle devices and sporting stocks that give a proper cheek weld with a scope mounted.

    I would like an RA compact in 223/5.56 with a 1/8 twist and a threaded barrel with a magazine that works. I'll settle for a magazine that works.

    Of the choices listed in the poll, the only one I find interesting is the 22-250 with a faster twist. One project (of many) I have in mind is re-barreling a Remington 788 with a faster twist 22-250 barrel and see how it performs with VLD bullets.

    Another project is to chamber a 308 AR in 22 CHeetah which is a 308 necked down to 22, using a fast twist barrel to shoot VLD bullets at some pretty fast velocities

    I would really love to see a .357 pump like the Remington 25 Carbine or the Timber Wolf. I would prefer the design of the 25. It is sleek, self-contained, is a take down and has a great balance point.

    Something like this please:

    A lefthanded bolt-action .22 rifle with a tubular magazine.
    Mossberg made 201 of them in 1937-38 and nobody has done it since. :banghead:

    I was going to post something very similar; I want Weatherby to release a Vanguard S2 with threaded muzzle. The already have the best stock shapes and triggers, now all they need is a few models with threaded muzzles.

    1) cheaper rifles.

    2) also, a semi auto 357 carbine that takes a 10+ round banana mag patterned after a 22lr mag. pattern it off the deerfield. pattern it off the m1 carbine. make it a whole new design, I don't care. just gimme gimme gimme.

    3) (and I know this runs counter to wish #1) anything that is not another ar15 or a copy of the savage axis/ruger america/etc school of thought.

    Fiddleharp, if it doesn't have to be tube fed, cz makes a nice lefty bolt 22. I love mine.

    How are the votes possibly distributed across such disperse areas? And who are the fools saying "enough"? Man I hate gun consumers; simultaneously wanting everything at the same time, knowing full well they'll only buy what they already own and prefer :rolleyes:

    I'd love to actually be able to find .338 Fed. ammo locally.

    I'd like to see someone come up with a way for mass-produced bold-actions to actually have a smooth action. Most of them range from ok to terrible. I realize I shouldn't be expecting it on less expensive rifles, but that's why I ultimately went with a Ruger American Rimfire over an Anschutz for my daughter. The Anschutz will always be worth more, but I'm not sure she could operate the one I handled as soon. For a $1000 22, I expect to get more than a pretty stock.

    A high quality 22-250 walking/calling varmint rifle around 6 lbs as opposed to brain dead firearms manufacturers who are stuck on the idea that a varmint rifle has to weight 10 lbs. Wake up and get out of the 60's folks.

    I couldn't agree more! I was beginning to wonder if I was just built funny.

    As for what I would like to see, i'd like a lightweight takedown in a smaller centerfire (.243 or so) that's not "tactical". Something good for a pack.
