What kind of hand gun would you like to see produced?

On my own wish list is a semi automatic in stainless steel, rubust, heavy duty, 5 inch barrel, for the .357 sig cartridge. I don't mind a weight of 45-50 oz. Will they ever make one?

Spookboy, . . . get a .460 Rowland kit for your 1911, . . . not much separates the two, . . .

Google up .460 Rowland, . . . the info is there.

I got a .22 conversion for my 1911, . . . am seriously looking into the .460 also.

I would also like to see some enterprising group make a "lefty" 1911. Seems to me it could be very easily done, . . . and if a feller was enterprising, . . . it could come in kit form.

May God bless,
Dwight

A Broomhandle lookalike in 9MM or .45 ACp.... for under $600....

I wouldn;t mind if they just took a Charter Arms Explorer 2 and were able to beef it up to 9MM.

Now that’s a gun. I wonder why they don’t produce it anymore. It would be really nice in a 4” model. That doesn’t look like it has a full length grip on it. Ideally they need to develop a rimless cartridge with the same ballistics as the 44 mag. for a gun like that. I wonder how it performed.

The guns worked well. The reason the grip looks short is because it is long to accomidate the 44 mag cartrige. LAR also made them in 357, 45WM, 50ae, 10mm and the rare 357/45 necked cart. LAR ran into some kind of trouble with the 1911 varients and stopped production some time ago. They still make a 50BMG and Ar receivers. I never found out what the problem was with the 1911 varients.

A short-barreled, 5-shot .44 Special in as absolutely small a package as possible. In other words, a .44 Special J-frame.

S&W would be the only acceptable manufacturer; the Charter Arms Bulldog doesn't do it for me.

Should be produced in both steel-framed and Airlite versions.

3 kinds...

I would like to see them bring back the Colt Python. As for guns that aren't made (yet) 2 come to mind. The 454 Casull and the fictitious 13mm Jackal used by Alucard in the animated series Hellsing.

"A short-barreled, 5-shot .44 Special in as absolutely small a package as possible. In other words, a .44 Special J-frame."

Taurus 445, I own one and it’s a little larger than a J frame because it has to be but still smaller than a 66. I like the one that I own but it needed a little tuning to make it a good gun. For that small of a gun the balance is almost perfect.

"S&W would be the only acceptable manufacturer; the Charter Arms Bulldog doesn't do it for me."

Smith did make a smaller 44 SP, made from titanium, I forget the model number but it was hammerless and I hated the gun. The balance was very poor and muzzle flip was nasty.
If you can find an older Bulldog there good guns and I own one. I don’t know why you are against them and I would be interested in why. If you have shot one and it had wooden grips I can understand your dislike but with Pachmiers there good shooters.
Then again from all my experience the newer Charter 2000 are mostly scrap.

A 6 shot, Smith & Wesson, "L" frame in 10mm Auto with a 3" bbl. and round butt and fixed sights. That'd be about the ultimate CCW revolver, at least for me it would be. I know they had a 10mm Auto a few years back but as an "N" frame gun with a 5"(IIRC it was a 5") bbl. it was way too large for CCW.

In a revolver: A K-frame sized, fixed sight, 6 or 7-shot 357, no idiot locks or two piece barrels. Make it available in blue or SS.

In a semi auto: A DA/SA, 10 round, aluminum or scandium framed 45, that looks like a 1911. NOT made by Para, thanks anyway. Preferably made by Colt, or S&W.

Regards 18DAI.

A Glock 357 mag would be cool! A Rifle or shotgun from Glock would be cool too! I really want S&W to get rid of the locks and MIM and bring back the 4506/4566.

Colt Thunderer (Repro in modern metals)

I would like to see Uberti sometime bring back the actual design of the Colt Model 1877, chambered in .32, .38spl (.38colt), .41 long colt. Using the true double action mode. though the design would have to outpast the first, due to its very fragile/gentle mechanism.. It should be identical, and could be had with nickel or blue/casehardened finish. Hopefully one day the Cowboy Action Shooting will go with the West and how it truly was, with every Western Firearm from that Era in time.

This would allow far many more firearms to be reproduced,
like..

the Colt Model 1878, Merwin & Hubert Single Action revolver and there Double Action, Smith & Wesson's Frontier Double ACtion in .44 calibre... etc.

I doubt anyone is going to bring out any new revolvers that are completely true to the 19th century spec, without a transfer bar, due to liability issues.
