A good tactical light/laser dot which uses AA batteries.

A handguard , retainer ring and lug for the AR15 which would allow you to stow a cleaning rod under the barrel.
( I hate assembling the GI one, and have stripped the threading on several segments...just give me a solid cleaning rod)

Red dot or maybe even between a 2-3x optic with an adjustable MOA dot.

You'd have to have it thread or fold. The rod's got to be longer than the barrel or it will get stuck. Personally I use a boresnake and call it a day.


I'd like to see a rail mounted (or keymod) battery container for that useless area right next to the receiver where nothing else can be mounted. Or spare parts (cotter pin, firing pin, extractor rebuild) so I can throw batteries in the grip.

I too would not be averse to Mossberg putting out their MVP in x39 and AK mag compatible. I'd also like to see a pump-action AR upper for absolutely no reason other than it can be done. Bonus points if there's a .22 conversion kit for it.

nah, there's room, as long as the brush is at least two inches long when it attaches it'll be usable. same as AK short rod, works with the screw on brush, and it's shorter than barrel. can be done. boresnake no good for stuck case emergencies, not good for lug cleaning

Check out the retro section on Arfcom, some VN era soldiers would drill a hole in the back of their triangular hand guards to slip the cleaning rod into it, then taping the back end of the rod to the buttstock. Or just tape it to the side.

Good thinking. That rod could then be as long as you would need, figure a 20" barrel would have 12" handguard and the rod could extend all the way to the end of it, which would be longer than the barrel if I'm doing lazy estimation right. I'd probably skip the rubber band as the rod is attached to the buttstock and it would make collapsing it slightly harder.

I think one of those rail-mount offset sling loops would work well as a front keeper for the rod, then you'd just screw it into the buttplate to secure it. Sorry for the big pic.

ETA: maybe this would make the rod stick out too far. Too bad nobody makes one that snugs the loop in the gap between the side and bottom rails.

How about one of those rail mounted, spare mag holders? Take the spring and follower out of a mag and you have a little storage. Need just a little space? Use a five round mag. Need more? Go up to 42. Don't have to worry about reliable feeding, so Promags are GTG. Still not enough room? Go camping with a Beta mag. :awesome:

IMO the ruger SP101 in boot grips is absolute sex, especially the Gemeni Customs models.

Why is there no lightweight option on this gun? Can we get one made from some exotic metal or polymer?

The LCR isn't close enough to a polymer SP101? Especially the new one with the exposed hammer?

The function is probably close enough, but the looks are nowhere close. The current polymer revolvers look like ugly j-frames to me. The SP101 is elegant and muscular vs the utilitarian LCR.

So,.. what would a polymer SP101 look like, then?

I think my biggest style beefs with the LCR are the weird humpback portion around the top of the cylinder and the way that the barrel and supporting frame look so small as opposed to the more slab sided look on the SP101.

That being said, I'm sure that there are totally valid reasons that the designers did that. The LCR is awesome, and I'll probably get one but I still think it's ugly. The design in my head would probably add bulk, increase weight, and add nothing to the functionality of the pistol but it would still be sexier.

Not quite what you were wanting, but here you go. Pump action .22 caliber (.223) rifle that will also shoot 12 gauge rounds.

I think I have already mention this one but it bears repeating.

Irons for the FNAR!

More pistol caliber rifles

A wider selection of lever action guns

More budget 1911's, besides the awesome Rock Island's

A .45 single stack Glock, about 8 round mag about the size as a Model 17

Better selection for foldable/collapsible stocks for shotguns

A folding stock with a conventional rifle grip a la the Kel Tec SU-16

More take down rifles

.22's with heaver, beefier parts; think a Marlin 795 with a bolt and recoil spring on steroids

A .22 magnum semi auto that was still around --- semi auto magnum rifle, both used to be made by Ruger

A Mini 14/30 chambered in .308 --- like a budget M14.....and probably not made by Ruger

More bolt action rifles chambered in magnum rounds, well at least cheaper than the one Ruger makes

A wider acceptance of budget shotguns; Stevens H&R, Charles Daly, Escort; etc.

I know I already mentioned this, but I really want a new modern version of the COP pistol. I was rewatching some battle star and someone whipped one out.

I don't care if the old ones sucked, I'm probably going to have to buy the next functional one that I see. The quad barrel is just really freaking cool.

Does anyone actually have one of these things? Any idea of a fair price on a functional model?

A glock "S" version that came with a frame mounted, 1911 style safety.........

Don't own one, but put a few rounds through one. Not fun. Barely ejected. Trigger on par with a poorly made staplegun. Cheapest one I've seen was $700, because of the novelty.
