I've suggested it before, but so far w/o results:

A gas-driven version of the Johnson M1941, complete w/ rapid take down and side-charging clip-loaded rotary magazine for all the poor saps stuck behind the Granola Curtain or in the other states held hostage by Communist-run legislatures & executive officers...

Much like the Mini-14, only w/o the removable-mag or over-gassed accuracy issues. Heck, in some parts of Okkupied Amerika, just the fact that it had a fixed mag would make having a pistol grip stock a non-issue!

Ruger

I'd like to see Ruger release their new PCC in 10mm Auto, , and I'd like to see both the solid frame and takedown models available.

Also like to see the return of a .44 mag semiauto carbine, the last version that mimicked the lines of the Mini family would be just fine.

Are you listening, Ruger?
We want a 10mm pistol caliber carbine. It will sell, I promise.
And it'd be pretty dang swell if it could take Glock mags :-)

Bring back the Ruger #3 with an expanded selection of calibers.
And fit it with a variant of #1 wood!!

And a Mannlicher stock version, too!

Is it true that Ruger introduces a new chambering of the No. 1 every year? I've read something to that effect, suggesting that collectors will want to collect them all.

Wasn't the last time we saw new chamberings the summer of 2018 when Lipsey's fielded three new No. 1 configurations?

I vote for a re-release of the Number 3, options of better stock.
Expanded caliber options.

PC Carbine in 5.7- I guess we'll see how their 5.7 pistol goes.

How about adding on yet another older cartridge with the 256 Newton?

A Mini 14 that takes AR-15 magazines, shoots < 1MOA, and costs under $600.

Having been burned on a few 10/22's...how 'bout one that didn't require more $$ to get it to shoot as well as some of the competition out of the box?

Just bring back the 96 in both 22 & 22WMR: easy enough to replaced the stock or barrel w/ what you want, if Ruger would just MAKE THEM! The aftermarket will fill in any gaps...

Fire up the budget game. Security 5.56. Something in between a Keltec SU16 and a GWACS/Cavarms sort of thing. A plastic fantastic 5.56 on the shelf for $350.

Of course, it's also a real shame that Ruger doesn't have a semiautomatic shotgun.

I'll add to my first comments the lever Model 96. In all it's original chamberings and maybe .357 too.

I like the idea for that 5.56, especially if it's got a good barrel and is accurate and lightweight and had a good trigger. The Kel Tec is at least light, but everything else is suspect and the price is not that good for what you get.

Ruger has never made a noteworthy shotgun and I think they realize there's a lot more money to make in handguns and rifles anyway.

I'd like to have an option of a 20 or 22" barrel on their 7.62x39 bolt action rifle. Other than that, I can't think of a rifle they should make...

Was there at one point a 10/22 chambered in .22 mag?
If they could bring that back, and make it function reliably, I'd probably buy one.

M77 mkiii - 223 length, 243-458 Lott in action length with separate mags or mag spacers for each oal....with plenty of room for seating to lands.

Focus items:
- forged action with smooth bolt sliding, low bolt lift, smooth feed rails, crf
- Real striker lifting safety like M70
- accurate machining
- integral recoil lug with vertical bolts
- cassette type trigger....maybe Rem 700 format
- 0.8” x 1” fine tooth barrel stub

I was just talking to a guy about this the other day. Since Ruger released the new 57 pistol, take the PC9 and make a swap barrel, mag block, and bolt (if needed) for it.
