I have probably mentioned this already but lever actions chambered for pistol cartridges(9mm, 10mm, 357sig, 40S&W, 45 acp) would be brilliant and eminently doable since all it requires is a different breech/bolt face and chamber.
Whatever works!

a hand tool that will knock out all of the rounds from a revolver full moon clip all at once, with one twist.

10 round magazines for the Ruger 77/357. It's my go to rifle, but I don't want to have to reload every 5 rounds when zombies are chasing me.

I don't know if it is still being made but there used to be one available, it was more of a desk top tool though, sort of looked like one of those rubber stamp carousels with a lever on the side.

I believe I'm going to ponder this a minute.
Remove the detent ball and put the spring on backwards. The housing that held the detent ball will still throw the cover open and the case should be ejected before the cover shuts. Prolly not ready for prime time, but it's a start. If I get around to trying it I'll let you know how it goes. ;)
Planning on heading to the range later and try this, wanted to dig this thread back up so I can find it when/if I have something to report.

So, yeah, in semi, up to reasonably rapid fire, it works pretty good. I didn't even remove the detent ball, it'd pop open and let the case out when fired, then pop back shut. Looked kinda cool. Then I got greedy, and put the SlideFire stock in bumpfire position. Ran a few rounds, then the spent case didn't get out of the way of the fresh round. Pulled the mag, cleared the jam, and finished the mag with the stock in the fixed position. Functioned great, without further incident. Not sure it was the port cover, could have been the mag wasn't up to simulated full-auto, it had a couple stoppages after I removed the cover. All-in-all, a fun little mod that warrants further investigation, I'll probably try it on another range toy AR.

An optic mount for pistols that clamps onto the foreend rail, wraps around top, and provides a picatinny rail up top to mount a scope or RDS. I should add the qualifiers "decent quality" and "reasonably priced". I picked up a couple from Keepshooting.com for $20 each, and for that price I can't complain, but I will state the fact that they were the lowest of Chinese quality. The others I've seen generally seem to be Airsoft copies, overpriced, or both.

Can't speak to the quality, but my only complaint with my Sig rds is that it was expensive for being no better than a PA micro.

Mako also makes a universal and a Glock-specific mount.

I always assumed that even if it were technically feasible, it would be pointless because .22lr is so cheap and widely available.

Sadly, I was wrong.
