    I Wish Ruger Would Make...

    Ruger used to march to their own drum when Bill Sr. ran things. He once said that the Ruger Old Army was "...one gun that we would ALWAYS make." Now he's gone and so is the Ruger Old Army. Anyhow, here are a few guns I wish Ruger would make or remake:

    • Ruger Old Army percussion revolver
    • The Model 77 with a top tang safety (who said the new safety was ever an improvement?)
    • A bolt action in .256 Winchester Magnum
    • The Mini-14 in 6.8 SPC
    • The Deerstalker semiauto .44 Magnum
    • Gold Label Shotgun Side by Side
    • Red Label Shotgun O/U
    • Stainless Blackhawk in .30 Carbine

    A Flattop Blackhawk Convertible in 45 Colt, 45 ACP, and 45 Schofield!

    I'd settle for a Flattop Blackhawk or NM Vaquero in 45 Schofield..

    Second on the Stainless Blackhawk 30 carbine and the 77/Hawkeye with a tang safety.
    Bolt guns with integral silencers like their SilentSR for 10/22.
    Grip panels that fit the grip frames they supply on their revolvers.
    Proper Marlin lever guns that work and shoot.

    I would also like to see a Ruger 10/22 with a 1:9" barrel twist. I know I can buy a barrel, but I hate to tear apart a gun just to make a different gun.

    Ruger model 96 in 44 Magnum.

    But then, mine wouldn't be worth
    as much.

    GP100s and Flattop Blackhawks in .41 (yes, forty-one) Ruger Special. With front sights that match the 220 gr./1000 fps factory load.

    Staked in sights on their blued Blackhawks, so they can be changed like their SS models.

    dont have much use for the rest of your list but i too like the tang safety and id sure find a way to buy a red label side by side. make mine a side lock 25 inch 20 gauge.

    I received word from high up that the target roll out date for the new Marlin Leverguns will be end of 3rd quarter beginning of 4th quarter this year.

    They are not fooling around and intend to make the best Marlin Leverguns ever made!

    Any idea on the pricing? Similar to what they were before?

    I'd like to see them make a single-shot rifle with wood that competes with one costing a thousand dollars less.

    I would like to see a Ruger #1.5 rifle. Between a #1 & #3 with rifle length barrels in some moderate cartridges and rifle friendly to target type sights & scope mounting.
