A Glock but all metal like the 92fs, I like to see more metal guns and less plastic on the market.

1.)SR45
2.)PPQ 45
3.)SR1911

I heard rumors regarding #3... but since I've never seen one in any stores
I can only assume that it doesn't exist.

the SR1911 has been in stores for over a year but due to overwhelming demand and less than satisfactory manufacturing speed, they are still quite rare. my LGS got their first SR1911 a week ago and it was gone before they got it in the display rack.

And now for something COMPLETELY different

A bear-defense gun.

Over-under pistol chambered for 500 S&W.

If you can't hit a bear within DLP distance with two shots...well that's all you usually get.

It would be light enough and flat and compact enough that even with a 6" barrel it would be packable. Recoil is not going to be an issue. You won't feel it, or care.

I expect it could be marketed for a whole lot less than S&W's revolver.

(Because of the Aurora shooting incident, I feel compelled to mention that a 450 grain bullet trundling along at 1,000 fps (which is mild for the 500S&W) would cause at least some discomfort to a person wearing soft body armor.) When I taught my friend to reload, we loaded up some 325 grain slugs over Trail Boss powder for instructional purposes. They would be dandy home defense loads. Out of that heavy revolver, they recoil like a 22, but those 325s clocked at 800 fps out of the 4" barrel. Would hit like a 45, for sure.

Guns I wish they would make:

Smith and Wesson Model 66-1 in 2 1/2" round butt and 4" square butt. I would buy one of each.

Colt Python in 4" and 6" barrels. I would buy one of each of those as well.


I realize that they used to make these, I just wish they still did.

I just wish Smith & Wesson would do another production run of their 3rd generation auto loaders.

Also would like a J frame chambered for .44 Special

I wish Ruger would make the SR1911 in something other than ss, maybe a good deep blue or parkerized version. I know stainless is easier to take care of, but I have never liked the look of stainless. I also wish I could find one, even if it was stainless.

I also want Glock to make an all metal gun, as long as it is as reliable as their original model.

I really really really want a SAA that you can fan without hurting the gun or spending a lot of money. I love me some faning of old SAAs.

I know this is the semi-auto forum but I have been hoping S&W would make a 5 shot DA snubbie smaller than a J frame chambered in .32 Mag or .32ACP. They could make that thing pretty damn small and would be a nice reliable pocket gun.

4.25" barrel is not compact. Not in a beretta or any other gun.

ever hear of a Star BM and BKM? I wish Colt made them--with or without the grip safety. As long as we're wishing.
Sig 938 comes close to your wish, no pony on it though.

An alloy HK P7

Mass produced alloy BHP with a better trigger (crisp with shorter reset).

Probably because it makes grips ginormous. I love me my CZ52, but the grip is kind of like a soap bar. I'll bet if it was called the S&W .30 Magnum its sales would be better, too

I wanna see an auto-revolver again. Yeah, Mateba tried and failed, but that was mostly due to mis-management. It's such a cool and obvious idea, that you'd think someone would be trying it at any given moment...
