    Is there a product that you can't believe no one makes? Maybe there is a product that is way too expensive for what is intended for; what is it? We're looking to fill the needs of the civilian market and the best way to get ideas is to ask folk directly what they are interested in seeing. There already be a thread for this but I was unable to find it during a quick skim. I will be posting this on other forums as well to get a larger sample of replies.

    An inexpensive single-shot bolt action rifle in popular lower-power calibers. Herters made one years ago in .22 hornet and (I think) .32-20. No buttplate even. A .38/.357 would be welcome on my farm.

    Genius!

    How about retro-looking rifles in modern cartridges?

    My mid-20s aged son is convinced that if someone were to manufacture functioning weapons from popular video games the manufacture could charge boutique prices for them. Auto pistol from Halo for example. Various weapons from Fallout (not 76)

    Combat wise, i have long had an idea of a chain gun firing .22 long rifle. I cannot think through getting the chain or belt light enough to not make the idea stupid.

    Resurrect the idea of the 44Automag but without the suck. It looks so cool! Put a wiser cartrige in it and trim out the operational kinks.

    Can the Kriss action work with rifle cartridges?

    Hell I'd buy that today

    I need a hammer for a American Western Arms, Dakota in 45. There are none to be found. Costs to much to produce for the amount one would be able to sell. K

    I collect WWI era rifles. I duplicate that era ammo. I cannot find online any company who makes WWI FMJ round nose bullets like the originals. I can get quite close with some, but cupie doll. Probably 'seasonally' would be nice. Limited consumer base, but more than likely loyal.

    Universal brass catcher that fits all guns & can be attached by clamp or strap quickly that really works. Every one that I have seen that works has to have a mount. Those Velcro strap types sag after the first few shots & you loose all the brass after that.

    I recently bought on a brass retriever. It works good. For a brass catcher i took a coal ash tin. And lined it with rubber roofing. I use that when shooting from a bench.

    I think a replacement front blade sight that could be easily installed and would be micro-adjusted for windage w/o a sight vice or punch & hammer.

    John, you are not supposed to be throwing the decoys that high!

    Mossberg 22 rifles from the 40's and 50 often had 3 sights- front, a receiver mounted V and a rear mounted peep. The rear peeps were often removed (and lost) when scoping. Finding a used one can run $50-$75. Havlin sales has some. Same for box mags for Mossbergs.

    a rifle variant of the Thomson Center Contender. one receiver, as many barrels as you can pay for. so you can have something that fires every round you come across, without paying full price for calibers you rarely use.
