    I want a semi-automatic revolver that also has auto ejection in the cycling.

    IIRC, the 10/22 was based on the M1 Carbine to begin with. The 10/22 has been scaled up to 9mm and .40, orginally in the late 90s with the PC9 & PC4 which was redesigned and released again in its current breakdown form.

    Not sure how the ballistics in the .30 compare to other pistol calibers (I have heard it compares to .357 in some way, though I have never researched it).

    Maybe track down a "cheap" Webley-Fosbury to do some carving on to develop a prototype...

    I would like a break top revolver in .380.

    I would also like to see a 5.7x28mm dedicated AR lower using proprietary straight box mags, not FN pistol mags.

    For FN to reintroduce the FAL.

    No more Century Arms Frankinfal's and from what I read DSArms have their problems also.

    Now that you mention it, that should have occurred to me. I guess I'm just looking for a slightly updated M1 carbine.

    (Not the Universal, although the one I bought really cheap runs well after I replaced the recoil springs with ones from Wolff).

    A pistol to compete with the FN Five Seven in 5.7. Actually, if you can keep the price near most polymer striker pistols, I think it would sell very well.

    A new single action revolver in .401 Herter's PowerMag. "It will kill any beast that walks the earth and flatten any man no matter where you hit him"...or something like that. What's not too like??

    Or at least produce some ammo for it.....even just brass will help.

    I am a big fan of the original Ruger PC. I have it in 40 and will probably get one of the new ones eventually- I like some of the mods too.

    I would love an M1 Carbine, but they are as pricey as the Garand and I think they are specifically listed on the NJ AWB law. My brother bought one in PA, but it was all tacti-cooled out with an aftermarket folding synthetic stock. Hideous looking. I would rather have the original look (even the original paratrooper version looks better than his monstrosity).

    A re-designed Mini 14 that could rival an AR15 in accuracy.

    A striker fired Keltec P-11.
