Well, what I would buy has already been made, but probably to never be made again, and that is the Model 12 Winchester, and the old Humpback Auto-5. I hated to see both go, but would buy new if I could.

*Glock 1911. There is a photoshopped pic that looks beautiful! To me at least.
*Single stack Glock 9mm. They know we want it.. Whats going on.

I should like to see a 30-06 in an AR platform. And no, the .308 is not sufficient.

A semi-auto FG42 in 7.62X51mm which uses standard magazines (FAL, G3, or M-14)

No real reason I can state other than it would be exotic.

Well... I am taken aback...

I'm not sure if I want to throw down $4,995 for it though. I can afford it but I'm not sure I want to justify it.

FN SCAR 17 in .243
Browning Hi-Power without mag safety (I know it can be removed)
Browning Hi-Power with a 1911 trigger
CZ 75B Single Stack configured to be similar to the SIG P210
Any .223 Bolt Action with a 1 in 7 twist from the factory (Browning, Remington, Ruger, CZ, etc)
Walther PPK/S in 9mm (Even though the .380 seems to kick like a little mule)

And one just to make those Glock lovers go "What?!?!"
A Glock with an external safety.

They certainly wont be making them forever. Its interesting, and youre likely to never know anyone else that will have one. If I really wanted it and could afford it, Id buy it.

I'd like to see a steel framed P.38 again. Or more like an HP. Deep beautiful shiney blue with Nill grips and real roll markings.

S&W I frames. maybe even smaller than an I frame. Something like the size of an H&R Young American with a rimmed version of a 32 ACP.

A contemporary version of the H&R bulldog. The thing was about the size of a J frame Smith, but a 44 cal. Sure, the short little 44 cartridge was ridiculously anemic, but it seems to me that with modern powders and metallurgy you could do better. I'd be happy with a 180 grain 44 JHP at 850 fps out of a J frame sized gun.

A version of the S&W 296 but with the look of a Centennial instead of that ugly humpback thing.

A light little 16" carbine, maybe break action, in 7.62x25.
