When will the firearms industry get off its laurels and...
« on: October 29, 2019, 01:55:11 pm »
...introduce something really new?   :hmm

Like an upscaled M1 Carbine clone chambered for the Winchester 350 Legend!  This would be a really "heavy" new rifle - like one pound more than the original M1 Carbine.

Naturally the new improved 350 M1 Carbine would have to come equiped with a folding polymer stock, picatinny rail and directed-sound flash hider.  :doh

Magpul could become a major player in the industry after designing some really heavy duty 15 and 30 round P-Mags for the next generation of ultra powerful M1 Carbines!  :o

Wow,  :whistle  think of all the bulk FMJ 350 Legend ammo sales volume required just to feed the potentially millions of new 350 caliber M1 Carbines!    :cool

Man! This could become the Best Li'l Hog Gun in Dixie!   :clap


What "really new" guns would you like to see?     :coffee

    Stranger things have happened - like Mossberg introducing a subcompact 380 pocket pistol that can be disassembled without pulling the trigger.

    Apparently it's been done as a one-off.

    EAA WITNESS CUSTOM 7.62X25 TOKAREV BARREL

    HERE IS A CUSTOM BARREL I HAD MADE FOR AN EAA WITNESS IN 7.62X25 TOKAREV. IT IS PRETTY COOL TO HAVE A MODERN HI CAP PISTOL IN TORAKEV - SHOULD FIT ALL WITNESS FULL SIZE MODELS,BUT YOU WILL NEED A .38 SUPER UPPER & MAGS. the gunsmith made this turning down a new Tokarev barrel into a sleeve he then bored a new EAA barrel to match and pressed them together. he made a step in the chamber area, press fit and then pinned them so there is zero chance the sleeve will ever come out. between the 2 barrels and the smith it cost well over $200 THE TOK ROUNDS ARE ABOUT .030 TOO LONG FOR THE .38 SUPER MAGS- you can either press the bullets a little deeper into the cases or shave the tips off the bullets making flat points or even hollow points

    I'm not that fancy. I just want multiple revolvers with 3 inch barrels, 6 or 7 round capacity, and round butt compact grips. I also want it to come standard with night sites and a good trigger pull. Chambered in .357 magnum in K or L frame size. I also want options of deep blue, stainless steel, and even scandium.
    Texas
    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    What's the smallest pistol, able to fire 4-8 rounds rounds,  you could come up with that would fit up a sleeve in a caliber suitable  for defensive use at ranges of 0-10 yards.

    When forced to go to wife’s semi formal work events, I normally slip a naa .22 mag Pug in my pocket. Sometimes a Kahr 380.  Unlike others, I’m not able to dress around a Glock 19, not even a 43 or shield. So, I’m open to suggestions.

    I still want a CZ-97B in 10mm.

    I know, some guy did one as a conversion.  I want a production model from CZ.

    I just want a 10mm S&W M&P. I know there is a Glock available, but I was hoping for someone else to make a striker 10mm polymer pistol.

    What "really new" guns would you like to see?     :coffee

    Until we have a tech break though, ammo or battery are most likely, there will be nothing "Really New".

    I want all guns, but lack the funds to support the "daring" currently out there.  I don't remember foreseeing any innovation, it is always a surprise to me.  I am okay with that.

    It would be nice to see a semi-auto belt fed that didn't cost a fortune.   Every once in awhile someone makes one,  but then the MSRP is something like $6,000.

    Yeah I even have some belts for one of those already.   CMP had the ammo cheap a few years back, so I bought a couple cans.

    Dislike the XDm completely. It just fits my hand wrong, and the triggers are almost always mushy.

    Here's something I'd love to see.
    A simple to use (i.e. plug and play) CNC set up which could machine something in the 12x12 inch range by just sticking in an SD card with the appropriate file.
    Not an "80%" whatever.  Something that could start with a block of metal 12x12 and turn out the receiver/frame  without much fuss.

    Shouldn't need to be able to turn out hundreds or thousands in a short period of time,  just enough to supply a family with long guns and pistols of their choice  from now until the end of time.

    That would be nice.  I think some CNC machines can do some of that stuff, but they are expensive and require stuff like 3 phase power hookups.

    Talk about mushy triggers, I have a a new Sig P365 and it has the worst damn trigger I’ve ever had. I don’t know why people gush over it. I’ve never experienced so much creep ever. I know mine is an example of one but damn.
