Crimson Trace Lasergrips with a Green laser.

A bullpup that takes glock mags.

A lever action .45 ACP with a factory threaded barrel, and a loading gate specifically machined to allow a 1911 magazine to be pressend in and then you could thumb cartridges from the mag into the tube.

More PDW calibers on the civilian market.

An 8 shot .357 revolver with an underbarrel 20 gauge loaded with #1 buck and powdered magnesium.

what would powdered magnesium do?

A modern, working version of the old star Chinese 20rd SKS boxmag. Originals are a PITA to find, and duckbills are - no. Just, no.

a one man tent with straight vertical sides....like the old pup tents, but with a square profile instead of a triangle.

also, front and rear locking frame type poles which do not block the entrance in any way.... shaped like a square when linked, sewn into the fabric so no disassembly other than un hooking necessary.

Actual zombies for my zombie guns lol.

And maybe a computerized machine that you type in the caliber, recipe, and quantity and it makes bullets for you.

I'd like to see a AR-15 dust cover that closes after each shot. I don't think it'd be to difficult. Remove the detent and add a spring that holds the cover shut. You'd still need a bump that the carrier would knock into to open.

I believe I'm going to ponder this a minute.

Why? That would just make it more jam-prone and more difficult to clear jams.

IDK, I was just thinking. I don't think it would make it more prone to malfunctions. Probably more difficult to diagnosis malfs. Mebbe not the best idea. I'm done with my work load so I'm just sitting around noddling stuff. I remember where I saw them, the FNC and the AR-180 had one too. Can be all that bad at inducing malfunctions.

You never know though, could be a game changer.

I'm just thinking that if it has enough force to close the ejection port, it's going to bounce the occasional shell in, like crypto's beard-induced failures with the Tavor.

True, I've had cases bounce off my fore arm and back into the action while shooting role over and support side. Might need to shelve this idea. :oops:

Lightweight ballistic helmet for a reasonable price.

You'd have to start by making helmets that are ballistic rated to begin with.

Essentially. Not a helmet on the market that's actually bullet rated. Unless you're facing IEDs/blast fragmentation, a bump helmet tends to be a better investment. Barring that, you're going to pay for anything that's going to be light and bullet resistant. Wishing for cheap, lightweight, and ballistic is like wishign for a .22Mag Glock that fits your hands perfectly firing loads that act like .223 does from a carbine barrel with no recoil with $10 mags and $.20/rd ammo that can be had NIB for $350. It's just not happening.

I know Doc, I was agreeing with you. Even a bullet rated helmet wouldn't be that helpful. Abrasions, knocks to the cranium, inderect graze or bounce from a round or fragment is all gravy, maybe even a direct fragmentation hit that is moving rather slow and lost most of it's "ummphh". Direct shot to the cranium from a high power rifle? Good luck. Hell, they got the nickname "brain buckets" for a reason. Holds the skull together when its split open.
EDIT: Spelling.

If I am not mistaken, the title of this post is: "Firearm accessories that you want that are not on the market"

So, that's what I want. You don't have to agree with it but THAT'S WHAT I WANT. That's no right or wrong to it.

Mighty specific simile, there. I take it someone wants a PMR-22 that doesn't suck.

I wish armor technology was as good as firearms technology, too. War would be a much more enticing proposition if a non-powered Iron Man suit was real and cheap enough to produce (in before Canadian bear suit guy with his Halo outfit and DUAL WIELD PISTOLS derp).

The helmet is both something you really hope for, and a weird problem, because a helmet that can stop ~2000 ft/lb-f from a 30-caliber rifle round (say, an SVT) might break your neck or crack your skull anyway. Still, an heroic super-concussion beats the alternative.

Just get a two ring binder. It's perfect for close range paper holding, and it won't go through drywall. Not to mention the sound of you opening and closing it will make the paper automatically fall in line.
