Think I'd base it on the .308 case, to take advantage of existing mags, bolt face dia's, etc. Don't know if the case is wide enough to offer a shoulder for headspace.

The rifle would be a short barreled semi-auto, based on Coopers "thumper" concept. NOt sure of platform but rugged and reliable.
So.... something like an AR-10, chambered in this: .400 THR Knockout (aka "10x51mm THR") ?
DIY 40 caliber 225 gr bullet at 2,360 fps; or a 300 gr bullet at more than 2,000 fps
Be sure to check out page 2.
Though, I suspect you'd want just a little less body taper and a little more shoulder, for a semi-auto.

I would second the 357 magnum Semiautomatic Carbine. I would also like to see a version in 454, 45LC, 44 mag, 460 mag and 500 mag.

"A lever action in 44 special, not just 44 magnum. I hear all the “you can shoot 44 specials in 44 Mag lever guns” Yea but show me one that doesn’t jam from time to time. I have 2 and both have jammed so bad that the gun had to be dissembled."

Uberti (Cimarron etc) makes just what you're asking, albeit a bit pricey (compared to Rossis 'n such).- - thoie Win 73 (and 66, IIRC). Not a .44, but Rossi used to make (a very limited number of) 92s in discreet .38 Special, and I believe you could probably send one off to Steve Young (aka Nate Kiowa Jones) www.stevesgunz.com to have a .44 Mag 92 rechambered to just .44 Special.

I'll add I'd like to see a Win 92/clone (Rossi etc)--and Marlin for those fans--in .327 Fed Mag that'll also feed its shorter "special" .32 H&R.

I'd +1 the ideas of a working-grade Win 94 built on these shores.again, as well as the 92 (amazingly not built here since 1941!!) Re the 94, I'd say while my preference leans toward the top ejects and especially Pre 64s, the market may demand scope-ability, so if so I'd say build 'em to no-later-than pre safety AE spec.
Re the 92, too bad USFA seems to be hurting or at least lagely missingl-in-action these days, they'd be the perfect one to build a proper (no safety b.s.) Pre War spec 92.

I think what's kept the .357 from semi-auto carbine application is difficulty in the rimmed cartridge feeding through a stick mag. That leaves very low cap rotary, which like the Ruger .44s, over time have found only a iimited and almost specifically hunting appleal and market. Not sure how well a tube fed (.22 like) auto would work.

I like the idea of resurrected "old school" (Marlin Camp, etc) pistol-caliber carbines. Re the "new school" carbines, I'd say abndon the idea of mag's shared with only "that" company's pistol (Beretta etc) or even "takes 1911..." but have their own proper, heavy duty hi cap mags befitting a long gun, a la the M1 carbine's.
While we're at it, resurrect Ruger's PC carbines, put on a 1/2-3/4 pound weight loss diet, and again given a proper heavy duty hi-cap mag specific to the rifle, not "shared with Ruger pistols.

Semi-auto (M1A, AR, etc) in 7mm-08 (and .243) "just because." Would take same mags as .308 I'd think?

A bullpup semiauto sniper rifle in something the size of a 338 lapua. Not necessarily that round but that size range. Basically something like a WA2000 in a bigger round than the 300 win mag.

Again I'll say it: Guns.From.Video.Games.

The Lancers from Gears of War, ANYTHING from Mass Effect.

I'd love a repro of the Krag-Jorgenson in 308 or.223.

Slope, I have the BLR in 450 Marlin. I bought a 1" shoulder pad to fire it ...
That's why I want the 458 WM - if I get beat to death it should be at least worth it.

Winchester 1886 in .33WCF is the one I'd like to see the most. I like the idea of bringing back the Savage 99 too.
