someone already makes a pump action AR15 for California buyers. the slide bar goes through the upper receiver where the gas tube would normally be...pushes the gas key.

someone already makes an AR in .30-06 as well ( like a giant stretched .308 AR receiver, dedicated lower). I want to see them make one in 8mm mauser or 7.62x54r, to take advantage of the cheap surplus ammo.
How much would you spend on it?

I wouldn't spend 10 cents on a pump AR....but the $3500 price tag on the .30-06 AR.....maybe....that's like a garand on steroids minus the BAR weight. id spend that kind of money for the other calibers.... 8mm in particular, cause I stocked deep when it was $8 a bandolier.

Ok... Here's another one. I'd like to see an Otis type cleaning kit pouch for the triangular UBR stock. Maybe there is one out there or maybe I can cut one out of foam. Just a thought though.
If guns are outlawed, can we use swords?

Yeah...I could see a .30-06 or a .270 AR being a lot of fun. Of course, now it's only a matter of time before somebody wants a 7.62x54r AR.





Time's up. :mrgreen:

.300BO, you -SHOULD- only need to do the barrel, since that's a slide action gun. Don't quote me though.

Glock factory pistols with slide cuts for RDO.

More calibers for the mini mauser action like 300 blackout and 6.5 grendel. With threaded barrel and quality full length top rails.

Sub sonic 6.5 loads for above rifle.

Carmax works decent too. Takes a little away from the lumen power and hurts the clarity slightly, but it works real well in real light doses then cleans right off. Probably wouldn't use it in any "tactical" application but for training it keeps the lens clean.

As for stuff that isn't made...
A striker fired 1911 (Incoming purist rage) would be cool. Sure single action is just as near no nonsense as striker fired, but glocks, M&P's, XD's, ext... All have less parts. Less shit to break.

I'm not sure what you want here. Going striker fired means you don't have a hammer, which means just about the entire 1911 design would get thrown out. IF you want a 1911 look alike, get the Chiappa (or ne of the other) rimfire 1911-look alikes and call it a day.

If it had a metal trigger and a proper(tuneable) 1911 trigger pull then a striker fired 1911 would be interesting, the hammer is something that can be grabbed and blocked in a scuffle(have heard of a few cases where cop's/good guys did just that, if they can do it so can someone else)..............

A modern and well designed .410 walking stick. Designed to look like a gentlemen's cane - functional safety and a trigger that doesn't obviously stick out.... And here is the kicker - easy to reload with space in the handle for more and easily accessible rounds.

Something that if House MD came back - no one would know its a gun.

That's what I want that isn't being made or available.

There's a reason. They are AoWs (any gun that looks like it's not a gun is) and there's a $200 manufacture tax and $5 transfer tax+wait time. Factoring in the length, recoil, and propensity for something bad to happen, caneguns lose out to a proper CCW piece with a well practiced draw. That, and AoWs require special paperwork be filed if you move, want to take it out of state, and certain legislatures may prevent their carry, in addition to having to have the tax stamp (or a copy) with it any time it goes with you.

They are kinda neat novelty pieces, but a plain old cane backed by a concealed handgun wins in the defense department.

OT: a way for me to practice Glcok trigger pulls without having to recock it every time, that doesn't cost $100 or more.

I hear you. I wish that Sirt training pistol wasn't so expensive.

I want a Glock 9 single stack, and a Glock rail camera the size of a TLR3 that auto turns on and records clear audio and 720p POV video when I draw. The current ones are physically too big.

I want to be issued the 25 ft Taser Swat cartridges instead of the bullshit ones, which I think are 10-15 feet. Or just the same type non lethal device without wires, like a nausea laser or something.

10mm tracer rounds, 10mm AR upper. Glock factory 25-30 round 10mm magazine.

Mostly agree with what Doc. That said with enough work, ingenuity, an excellent metal and or woodworker, you could probably get a tube fed repeating cane put together.

Sure. Contact a manufacturer of AoWs and I'm sure it can be done. It will have to be a one-off because the market isn't there. Also try NFA listing websites, might find an old one.

An Aimpoint with an etched reticule(perhaps a central ring around the dot, or a chevron post with horizontal lines inside it) so that it still had some use without batteries, this is something I would pay top dollar for and that would sway many of the people that are "uneasy" about being dependent upon batteries, it is a simple thing that would genuinely earn Aimpoint more money...

The .410 walking stick has me thinking....

A pump action carbine, probably using a miniature Remington action, in .454, that will reliably feed .45 LC as well, and has a long enough bolt that even if they won't feed you can still single load .410 if you really want. Don't know why I want to, but I do. :lol:

new made Colt hammerless pocket pistol in 9mm, with buttery edges.

a long slide, compensated desert eagle in .44 mag or 50 ae...just because it's already so big...add three inches to the front end and square it off. put a rail under the frame.

a Kriss carbine that takes 30 round, indestructible greasegun mags.

More Hogue ruberized stocks, specifically for Marlin lever guns and AK/Saigas.

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.
