Would love to see a Makarov with a lighter first trigger pull and a de-cocker. Would be my favorite (mine already converted to .380 stainless barrel).

Also, would love to see a 10-shot single action 22. magnum semi-auto about the size of a Sig P938.

A 22 conversion unit for the S&W M639/M659. Yes, I know, there is the Peters-Stahl unit-if you can find one.
A 22 conversion unit for the steel frame P-38.
The ideal defensive handgun. It weighs 5 ounces when carried, 5 pounds when fired, kicks like a 22, accurate like a 38, hits like a 44.

A Ruger MkIV Target 5.5" bull barrel chambered in either .32 acp or .32 S&W Long Wadcutter with a fast twist. This would make a great entry level pistol for Bullseye competition.

A K32 by S&W with adjustable sights, no stupid anti-lawyer lock and the old style slender barrel, chambered in 327 Magnum. Offered in 4" 5" and 6.5" made for outdoorsmen instead of "CC" or police. The market is way overloaded now with Cop guns, military style guns and CCW guns but the outdoorsman is largely neglected now days.
I and many others still prefer revolvers for our sidearms when hunting or fishing as well as back-packing.

Sure a good auto will do, but that is not the point.

Like men who prefer bolt actions and lever actions over battle-grade autos for hunting, it's about what we want, not what someone else "proves" is "better".

.32 wadcutter in a semi auto wouldn't be a bad idea, but I don't think the Mark pistol can handle that in a blowback design and work with the mag being in the grip. The target pistols that are chambered for .32 Wadcutter all have the magazine in front of the trigger and I don't think any of those pistols use feed ramps. It's a straight feed right into the chamber, thus I doubt the Mark frame has the space to do any of that.

.32 ACP the Ruger Mark can handle as custom versions of that have been made.

They exists but not in the US..Always had a fascination with Glock 25 and 28.
G25 is G19 size and G28 is G26 size but .380s....

An updated version of the pre-war PP and PPK (NOT PPK/S) with hammer drop only and polymer frame.

I would like to see a Rhino in 10mm using the same clips as a Smith 610.

wish I had

Ruger Deer Slayer 44 mag semi carbine reintroduced.

A solid lever action in 357 Maximum. Now that would be a legend.

I would’ve liked for Beretta to have made a single stack version of the compact or sub compact PX4. Don’t get me wrong, love my little 45 Springfield XDE but if there was a thinner PX4, it woulda saved me from having to buy a new carry pistol. Lol.

Interesting wish.

A blowback operated 9x19mm, concealed hammer single action autoloader with a decocking mechanism?

Didn't say it had to be a blowback or single action. Just wishing for something the same size and profile.
Others have chimed in with some long gun wishes and I have a beauty.
I'd really like an M1 carbine in a new rimless .357 magnum round.

For me something nice and simple like a Registered Magnum downsized to a K frame chambered in 22 Magnum. Also a Ruger Single Six 22LR/22Mag, made in scandium, duo tone, and a 2 1/2” barrel.

A cheap break-action .22 pistol. Cast the whole thing out of zinc; I don't even care.

Ain't been a thing for something like 50 or 60 years.

Thought controlled guidance

A handgun that automatically puts the bullet where you think it should go.

Actually, come to think of it, I’d like to see more semi-auto options for 44-mag instead of just the Desert Eagle- not saying I don’t like the Deagle, just not interested so much in a $1700 dollar pistol....lol.

And maybe more smaller, compact versions of 22-mag. Don’t get me wrong, I love my little NAA Pug Revolver but a similar-size semi-auto would be nice.

Walther PPK Mark II
A modern take on an old classic, now with a lightweight polymer frame.

Remington LDA 1911 10mm
Remington finally brings back the Para Ordnance Light Double Action 1911 chambered in 10mm Auto. (Why they haven't done this already when the LDA was so popular is beyond me.)

Beretta 92/96PF
A polymer framed version of the Beretta 92 series with a frame-mounted safety/decocker like the Taurus PT92.

Beretta 93E
A Beretta 93R that bypasses the useless NFA with use of a pistol variation of the non-NFA FosTech Echo Trigger System.

Rossi Frontier Justice
A Rossi 92 Lever Action Rifle chambered for .45 Long Colt and .410 Bore Shotshells.

Mossberg 590A1 Ultra Marine
A Mossberg 590A1 Pump Action Shotgun made of Stainless Steel, also available in the PGO Shockwave configuration.

Armat M41A Pulse Rifle
Chambered in 10x24 Caseless Ammunition with an under-the-barrel 30mm Grenade Launcher. Seriously, somebody needs to invent this already. (Maybe Armalite since the brand name seems to be derived from them anyway.)

I want a new cartridge, but based in a 1911 type pistol. I want to scale the 10mm up to use .429 bullets, 180 to 220 grain, at 875 - 900 fps. Call it the 44SLP, for self loading pistol.
