Well, what I would buy has already been made, but probably to never be made again, and that is the Model 12 Winchester, and the old Humpback Auto-5. I hated to see both go, but would buy new if I could.

*Glock 1911. There is a photoshopped pic that looks beautiful! To me at least.

I should like to see a 30-06 in an AR platform. And no, the .308 is not sufficient.

A semi-auto FG42 in 7.62X51mm which uses standard magazines (FAL, G3, or M-14)

No real reason I can state other than it would be exotic.

Well... I am taken aback...

I'm not sure if I want to throw down $4,995 for it though. I can afford it but I'm not sure I want to justify it.

FN SCAR 17 in .243
Browning Hi-Power without mag safety (I know it can be removed)
Browning Hi-Power with a 1911 trigger
CZ 75B Single Stack configured to be similar to the SIG P210
Any .223 Bolt Action with a 1 in 7 twist from the factory (Browning, Remington, Ruger, CZ, etc)
Walther PPK/S in 9mm (Even though the .380 seems to kick like a little mule)

And one just to make those Glock lovers go "What?!?!"
A Glock with an external safety.

A .41 Magnum lever action that cost less than $1k.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.

They certainly wont be making them forever. Its interesting, and youre likely to never know anyone else that will have one. If I really wanted it and could afford it, Id buy it.

I'd like to see a steel framed P.38 again. Or more like an HP. Deep beautiful shiney blue with Nill grips and real roll markings.

S&W I frames. maybe even smaller than an I frame. Something like the size of an H&R Young American with a rimmed version of a 32 ACP.

A contemporary version of the H&R bulldog. The thing was about the size of a J frame Smith, but a 44 cal. Sure, the short little 44 cartridge was ridiculously anemic, but it seems to me that with modern powders and metallurgy you could do better. I'd be happy with a 180 grain 44 JHP at 850 fps out of a J frame sized gun.

A version of the S&W 296 but with the look of a Centennial instead of that ugly humpback thing.

A light little 16" carbine, maybe break action, in 7.62x25.
