Guns you would buy that will never be made

You know, the ones that no company makes but you dream about if you only had the money.

1. A Beretta 9x series pistol except single stack magazine in .45 ACP and a frame mount safety like the Taurus PT9x series.

2. Browning Hi-Power with a steel frame with light rail in 10mm Auto.

3. Ruger PC series carbine except like the newer style Mini-14s chambered in the following calibers of 9x19mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, 10mm Auto, and 357 Sig. The magazine well would be replaceable so it can use GLOCK, S&W, Sig Sauer, Beretta, Ruger, etc... magazines.

4. PS90 in 9x19mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP.

1. A 4" j-frame size DA revolver in .25 ACP.

2. A 14" .357/44 B&D barrel for the MK VII D.E.

3. A .32 ACP conversion kit for the Uzi.

4. A 'harmonica' feed .44-40 1866 carbine like the one used by Yul Brynner in the movie 'Adios Sabata'.

One can always hope, right?

Left handed .357 magnum, .327 federal, and/or .44 magnum DA revolver produced by S&W, Ruger, or Colt if the price was right. Being right handed, left eye dominant, I find reloading a little awkward. If the cylinder swung out the the right and the release on the right side, I would be shooting left handed and reloading right handed.

I like how the SAA was designed. Designed to be shot with the left hand, reloaded with the right hand. If only Samuel Colt were alive today, we might have more left handed DA revolvers.

Civilian version of the Swedish AK5 or a return of the FN FNC

A proper remake of the Bren Ten Standard Model in 10mm Auto.
It's obvious that Vltor won't be doing it.

I want Sig to make a real semi auto only civilain legal version of the 550 series rifles, not just their current lineup of knockoffs.

And while these were made before, I'd like some new S&W 3rd gen automatics.

It is the Hi Power. It's made by FN, the company that originally created the Hi Power, and its definitely a high quality gun.

Auto 426, I was going to say the same thing! I think it might be import restrictions

I'll be the first to say a belt fed semi auto sniper/battle rifle in .50 BMG

A 942 SW - meaning 9mm with a 547 type extractor.

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.

A redone Sharps 4 barrel derringer in 32 ACP or 32 HR mag.

A scaled up NAA mini in 32 HR - not that ugly prototype that they ditched.

A ray gun.
