Done.

A Glock 36 with an extended grip to give 8 round capacity without that stupid magazine design they use now and the grip slimmed down.
Why don't you just take your 36 upper and put it on a 30 lower?

A redone Sharps 4 barrel derringer in 32 ACP or 32 HR mag.
I was thinking much the same thing or pepper box .22lr.

That's the new 30S - I don't like the fat grips of the 30s - even the SF ones.

I would also love to see a MKII in 9mm. Don't know why but it sounds cool!

A double action revolver without a lock. Would love to see Colt bring back their revolver line especially the Anaconda. Seems like the perfect venue for Freedom arms to explore.

Browning BAR in .450 Marlin or .458 Winchester. They make the BLR in .450 Marlin, so why not? 16" barrel, compensator, clever fiber-optic express sights. For CQB with dangerous game, Bigfoot, Nessie.

Ruger GP100 with a 7 chamber cylinder (there's plenty of room), 2.5" factory ported barrel and adjustable sights, in ultra-bright stainless and gorgeous real wood grips.

Ruger Redhawk in .357 Magnum with an 8 chamber cylinder (there's plenty of room), 3 inch barrel, adjustable sights, wood grips, again in ultra-bright stainless.

Stoeger, Mauser, anybody, please start making Lugers again - this time ones that work. Make new Broomhandle Mausers too. The Mitchell and Stoeger Lugers of the early 1990s were gorgeous, if somewhat unreliable.

Somebody buy Hogue and shut them down. The grips they supply to S&W and Ruger as O.E.M. are surpassingly ugly. Ugly enough to turn me off to the whole gun.

An AK47 lightweight - with polymer receiver, lightweight barrel and stock - no more than 6.5 pounds max (unloaded).

KelTec Sub 2000 or Ruger 10/22 style carbine in .357 Magnum.

Auto 426, I was going to say the same thing! I think it might be import restrictions
If I remember my import laws correctly real Sig 550 series could technically be imported to the US, but they would have to be built in a "sporter" configuration that lacks the evil "assualt weapon" features like ability to accept high capacity mags. Once those rifles enter the US, they can be reverted back to their true form using enough US made parts to be 922r compliant.

Sig could also just build an exact copy using their manufacturing plant in the US, but they chose to go for something that looked and functioned similar but was cheaper. I can't really blame them for it, as the costs of the real 550 series as such that they would likely never sell enough commercially to turn a profit, but I can dream.

Great post! I would love to have an 8-shot .357 redhawk!

I would also love to see a gun of the Ruger MK series chambered in a "real" caliber. I would take 9mm or something really unique like a .38 special or .357 mag. Or imagine an oversized MKIII chambered for .45 colt!course the blowback would make recoil a real "B."

I would like to see Mauser do more. I want to see a pistol from them that's modern and servicible and not just a copy of a SIG (Sigsauer owns Mauser.) I would also love to see them bring back the broomhandle Mauser and Luger too. I would also love to see them produce Gewehr 98 and K98 replicas and sell them at a reasonable cost. Really I would love it if they sold anything at a reasonable cost.

That said, I would gladly buy a "Mauser" branded SIG 229 or 2022 too!

How about an LCR in 9MM? Sounds good to me.

SW 432 in 327.

Reintroduce the 3913 LS configuration but not DA/SA - do cocked and locked.

6.8mm SPC(R)?

Ruger #1, 26" barrel in 6.8mm SPC with a rim. Since the 6.8 is based on a .30 Rem using a .30-30 case should not be a problem. The rim just seems right for a single shot & this combo would be interesting as a deer gun.

10/22

I'd like to see Ruger make their target style heavy barrel 10/22 with Hogue stock as a reliable .22 magnum. And to provide affordable reliable Ruger factory 25 round mags for it.

I'd enjoy one of those as a fun little 9mm carbine supplement.

A stainless steel, roughly 686/GP100 sized revolver based on the Medusa revolver concept from one of the major makers but with the Dan Wesson removable barrel system and cylinders and barrels in .45, .44, .40, .38 and .32 to allow the use of .32/.327 caliber, .44/.429, .45/.454, 10mm/.40 and .38/.357 revolver/auto rounds. Ideally, the .32/327 cylinder would hold 7 or 8 shots, the .38/.357 and 10mm/.40 cylinder, 6 shots, and the .44/.429 and .45/.454 cylinders would hold 5 shots.

It would be expensive, of course, but just imagine having a gun that would fire the vast majority of centerfire pistol rounds on the market. You might even be able to fire the bottleneck rounds by mixing and matching barrels and cylinders. The 9mm barrel with the .40/10mm cylinder would allow the use of .357 SIG and 9x25 Dillon, and the .32 caliber barrel with the 9mm cylinder would allow the use of .30Mauser, .30 Luger and .30 Tok.

It will never happen, of course. The first owner would no doubt install the .32 barrel and the .45 cylinder and proceed to blow the gun up.

**********************

An otherwise standard stainless steel Beretta 92FS or 92G with a stainless steel frame. I know that the Billennium and Steel are available, but they aren't the standard 92S or 92G--they are entirely different designs in terms of how the safety is implemented and the frames are plated, not stainless.

**********************

A P-Series Ruger in 10mm. Other than the P95, Ruger has abandoned the P-Series, so this is obviously a pipe-dream.

**********************

Single stack 9mm "carry-sized" gun from Glock. This could happen, but I'm not optimistic.

**********************

A Ruger Super Redhawk with a 5" barrel having a profile similar to the GP100 full underlug barrel instead of the highly unaesthetic "pole stuck into the frame" look of the standard Redhawk. This is a possibility, but maybe there's not enough demand for the idea.

Ruger

Glen,
Ruger did make the Mini 14 in 7.62 X 39 and they called it the mini 30.

Was not too many years ago. Don't know if it is still cataloged. My neighbor bought one about 5 years ago.

There was a P85 or P89 that came with a .30 Luger barrel. 7.62x25 is problematic due to the long cartridge length. It won't even fit into a 10mm magazine.

I was talking about the pistol round.

I have another. A synthetic stock, SS compact lever gun in 9 mm. Not one of those tactical stocks -just a classic lever gun but as I described.

#1 - Rimless 32ACP
#2 - Double-stacked Kel-Tec P32. Heck, it may even work with a regular 32ACP cartridge.
