I did not see my survey until too late. My ISP very helpfully called it spam and quarantined it.

How about scaling up the LC9 to an LC45? Build it to use single stack P90/97/345 magazines.

I agree with Cheapshooter, with one tweak.

LCP in .22mag.
The reason I would like to see the LR version isn't for carry, but rather more economical practice with the same gun as my BUG/deep concealment Elsie Pea
That is if, and when the ammo crazyness ends. for now I use a very similar feeling Taurus PT22 Poly.
In addition to great practice, it's loads of fun to shoot. I think a rimfire LCP would be as well.

I hadn't thought of that Cheapshooter. That would be a good idea too.

After hearing they improved the trigger I'd have to get rid of my TCP and buy a LCP in .380 for me, one in .22mag for the wife and one in .22lr for us to practice with.

Dang Ruger, ya hear that? Three sales right of the bat with minimal tweaking of current product.

A 45 ACP/45 AR six shot revolver. A GP100 would be OK but I don't think you can fit six .45 ACP rounds in that cylinder. A Redhawk version would work.

I agree with the more finish variations to the Ruger SR1911.

A bigger LCR would be pretty ugly in my opinion. I'm picturing a cross between a Rhino and a Judge.

All suggested names for the same rifle....A 500 S&W Mini 14, or Model 99 Deerfield. Pressure is close, but If It can't be done then maybe a 454, or 480.

Had the idea come from S&W or Ruger first, it would have been aclaimed as the greaeist inovation in firearms in the last century. But because the first was Taurus

ok, i was wondering what you meant cheapshooter, me personally i would like to see a mini-50 in .50 Beowulf, also a Deerfield Carbine in .500 S&W would be kick ass, but i think in .480 Ruger would probably more feasible and just as fun, and i do agree with Ruger .45 Colt/.410 arguement in fact should add .454 Casull to that combo.

Or 450 Bushmaster. Same idea. Large caliber, short, fast handeling semi-auto "woods" gun for deer, and hogs with more punch than 44 Mag.

Except it wasn't pretty sure the judge is a copy of the thunder five... they did it first, check your facts.

.410s suck out of pistols. its a fact. sure there are rounds for it now but nothing better then the normal better work horse rounds. and the size of a 5 shot 410 pistol is larger then a compact glock. No thanks. Now lets skip the thread killing judge argument.

I'd love to see a GP-100 in .22 that would be in my collection ASAP!

I'd also like a Super Redhawk with a full lug barrel.

I hadn't thought of that, but I'd almost certainly wind up buying one. The various repros are cool, but if I were going to try to get into cap and ball, I'd rather have something that benefits from the past 100 years or so of mechanical advancements.

I'd also probably buy a lever gun from them if they started making them. A short 45-70 would be perfect, or in any one of a number of pistol calibers to match their revolver line.

Something else I thought of was a 3" SP101 with a dovetailed rear sight. Sort of like the Wiley Clapp (I think) GP100, but sized for CC.

A 4- or 5- shot revolver on the Single-Six or medium-frame would make a dandy trail gun....and work a lot better than the other versions out there.

I'd really like to see a LCR in 9mm & .44Spl, too. And I want Ruger to get back in the pistol-caliber carbine game. Maybe a cross b/t their PC carbine & Beretta's CX4 carbine.....

I want em to bring back the .32H&R adjustable sight Single Six and their lever guns. Add a lever gun in the new WSM. All of those are proably never gonna happen so let look at a truly neglected market....


I'd like to see them introduce a DA kit gun available in .22lr, .32H&R and .38sp. Doesn't have to be all steel, maybe based on the LCR. But it must be DA, (not DA only), sized smaller/lighter than the SP's, something like a J frame, with usable sights and 3" barrel. Maybe even 4".

I would love to see a return of the .44 Magnum semiautomatic carbine, but updated with a detachable box magazine and synthetic furniture.

Ruger is working on a shotgun. They were hiring for a shotgun product manager a while back.

Given the failure of the Red Label, I would imagine that they are going with a semiauto this time. I wouldn't think they'd develop a pump, but I wouldn't have thought they'd do a 1911 or a piston AR either.

I think I need a pistol caliber carbine. I'd love to buy a Ruger. A 9mm Ruger AR could be interesting.
