Here's my list of (left handed) firearms I wished they'd make one day:
 
1. Savage Mark II BTV L-Hed in 22LR. They make it in a stainless version (BTVS) but I hate stainless.
2. Remington CDL L-Hed in .308 Win.
3. Remington SPS Varmint L-Hed with either a Hogue or Bell and Carlson stock. I looked but can't find either maker doing this stock.
 
What's your's???

I'd love to see a commercial manufactured .416 Taylor...along with commercial made ammo.
 
I'd like to see a few things come back.
 
Savage 99  and make it in the new .338 Federal
Winchester 88  in the same as above
Remington 700 BDL in .35 Whelen
 
Winchester model 71 in .348 again...but also offer .450 and .500 Alaskan

a 2" magnetic rail gun that would fit in the back of my pickup, shooting 1 lb projectiles in the vicinity of 20,000 fps. Oh and it would have to run on batteries. Anything else can be made by a gunsmith.

+1 on the Savage 99!  how about in a .260!

A .17 Hornet in a Rem 700 or a New Browning/FN A-Bolt type.

A .260 in Rem 700 CDL

Ruger GP-100 in .327 Federal Mag - as far as I know these are not available.

Must have a bigger pickup than me if you can haul those batteries! Nice thought Dale, but what do you want to shoot a 1lb projectile at?

current pickup will carry the gun-- but the generator needs a double duallys. Anything that needs 100,000 ft/lbs to put down.

Too slow of recycle time -- this is semi auto. (would need some good shielding the arc jump from that large of a capacitor would be nasty)

 On the Colt 380 they used to have three of them

 1- governet model (of which I have one)
 2-the Mustang
 3- the Pony
 It wasn't that nobody wanted them it was just that demand for Colts went down and they ran scared with all the law suits filed against the gun companies. If enough interest was brought back towards these models I am sure Colt would bring back at least 1 of them.
 Colt is located 20 miles from my house and from what I've been told they work with skeleton crews, layoffs where never brought back. You would think in this economy with gun sales higher than any time in history Colt would be running 3 shifts and producing as many civillian guns as possible.

Would like to see Cooper build some sort of mountain rifle aka SS/Synthetic that didn't weigh 8 lbs. Chambered in some of the short mags would be nice as well.

Would also like to see some more upper crust bolt action 22 lr.'s as well.

Puma makes .454 lever guns...I saw one for sale the other day.  I don't know if they are still in production, but there are a few on Gunbroker...$400-500.

Agreed. For a while, some of the gun rags where pimping them and sales were stronger and now they have fallen off. I don't even think that Kimber is making 22's anymore which is a shame.

Nope, the Kimber (of NY) .22 was indeed dropped a couple years ago.  A shame, as it was a fine rifle.  One of my most prized rifles is my Kimber of Oregon M82 Super America.  I dreamed of owning one in the 1980's, but I never crossed paths with the right one, until I began to accept that it would never happen.  I finally found one in mint condition at a reasonable price 12 years after the company went bankrupt.  I didn't plan to buy a rifle that day, but my guard was down, and it was just too irresistable to pass up!  The Cooper M57, especially the one you have, is probably a better rifle, but I still love the K of O 82, as much as anything for the feeling of nostalgia it evokes in me!

2. AR-10 flat top in 260 Rem. with free floated 20 inch barrel and picatiny rails on forearm.
3. 22 rimfire conversion unit for the Steyr AUG or STG 556.

2.  Colt Python.  Please start making these again!
3.  Smith & Wesson L frame in 327 FedMag.  Good for 8 or 9 shots!
