I would like to see the Star PD .45 come back. It was a compact 45 that worked, at least the one my father had did.

Not a handgun, but bring back the Marlin Camp carbine in 9, 40 & 45, but make them so they take glock mags.

A Colt 1908 in .22.

That would be awesome.

A stainless steel Schofield.

Even more Awesome.

I second this idea. I always did like these rifles and always wanted them to have more capacity.

An M1 Carbine chambered in .44 mag.

Oh my... This could be a long list!
(yes, I realize the first two on my list are wheelguns)

1. S&W K-Frame, 5-Shot, .41 Special - 210gr LSWC @1050 fps
2. S&W K-Frame, Airweight, 6 or 7 shot, .327 Magnum, 4", 5" or 6" barrel
3. S&W resurrects the metal frame, single stack 39xx series

4. 1896 Broomhandle Mauser type in: .22LR, .22Mag, 9mm, .45ACP
5. A strong, roller-block delayed action 10mm pistol with a crisp 1911-like trigger
6. A decent, small .380 pistol like the Colt Gov't/Mustang or Remington 51
7. Colt Lightweight DAO Commander 9mm/.45 with a trigger as good as the Kahr K9/K40 series

8. A .45ACP P.08 Luger. 'Nuff said there.
9. CZ 75 P-01 in .45 ACP. (Ditto)
10. A very lightweight Ruger MkII that's smaller, 7-8 shots, with a quick change 3" barrel that can be replaced with a 6" or 8" "target" barrel. Excellent as a survival gun.

11. Lightweight Colt Gov't in both 9mm and .45 ACP (is it out yet?)
12. An new M1 carbine (or similar concept) that actually works well. Bonus points if it's also available chambered for .22LR, .22 Mag, .327 Federal Mag, .41/.44 Mag or .45 Colt!


At the 2010 SHOT show, Colt had a lightweight Gov't model and a DAO Gov't model... but IIRC they had not yet made a lighweight-DAO Gov't model.

I think they've been there, done that! It was called the Ruger 99/44 Deerfield.

http://www.chuckhawks.com/ruger_deerfield.htm

Well, maybe more like a 44 Magnum Mini14. My dream was that it could be beefed up enough for 460 or 500 S&W. I think the price was higher than the niche market would bare. Discontinued around 5 years ago.

- A single stack Glock 9mm. Truly small, not like the 26 or 27.

- S&W Shield .45

- More manufacturers with a .357 Sig platform

- A design that simplifies and toughens up the 1911 but keeps that great trigger.

- A new Beretta metal-frame pistol series.

Exactly what I thought. Very expensive but pretty much the dream pistol carbine.

I'd also by a single stack Glock G27 (.40 cal) or G29 (10mm).

I'd also like to see Ruger make a .454 casull with a 4" barrel....can only get the 2.5" or 7.5" barrel dang it.

Displaying my complete lack of firearms engineering here, but why would this not be feasible?

By the way, if it were feasible, this would be my choice as well.

my dream guns

A stainless ruger 10-44 with high cap mags.
A convertible revolver in 40S&W with extra cylinder set up for 10mm that didn't require moon clips.
A 22mag autoloader with slides and barrels for CC and target work. One 3.5" slide for.CC and a 5 inch slide with 8" barrel for target work.
A fancy walking cane or umbrella with a reliable pistol caliber gun concealed within. All I've seen so far.
A automatic pistol with detachable butt stock and interchangeable barrels so you could have a full size pistol or pistol caliber carbine with just 2 accessories.
A hi point carbine with a delayed blowback operation chambered in 45acp,40, and 44 mag with the mag ahead of the grip and hi cap mags that work properly. So many ideas just not enough time in the machine shop unsupervised to make them happen.

A 4" Combat Commander in 10mm would be the bee's knees, IMHO.

Absolutely!

Let's add to that, a .22 Magnum in the SP-101 too, with a 4" and 6" barrel option.

New, modern sa/da revolvers in 45colt. Something like a Taurus M450. Para Ordnance double stack 1911s in 10mm. A safe semiauto in 17HMR. And on a side note, Id like to see Hornady make a 240gr 44mag leverevolution round.

I second the idea.....

...........of a short barrelled Hi Power, with the option of stainless. It's tough to find those FM detectives.

On the revolver side- I wish NAA would come out with a slightly larger revolver in .32 H&R mag

They made one. It was considered too unsafe for distribution in the United States - by the distributor themselves. It is a gas delayed blowback gun in semi-HK rifle style.

I wish Sig would kick themselves square in the ass hard enough for them to start making quality handguns again.

A few people here have said in so many words that they want some particular gun from out of the past but they want it modernized. Don't the guns being made now fit that description already? With S&W revolvers, for instance, no one ever seems to like the modernized versions of their so-called classic revolvers, not that I blame them. And someone else wants a Colt Government Model that is simpler and tougher! Would a Browning Hi-Power in .45 auto fit that description?

A new gen HK P7 with improvements based on some of the lessons learned over the past 30 years. But the same perversely enjoyable experience of operating it.
