    What discontinued gun (revolver, pistol, or long gun) would you like to see resurrected? Keep in mind the Feds rules on new production automatic weapons, so lets leave those out.

    Right now I wish I could get a new Sig P232.

    My list is long but ever-growing.

    I'd love to see the Gyro-Jet made again.

    And the aluminum framed version of the Whitney Wolverine.

    The Sirkis SD-9/CAT-9.

    The "Wobly Webly" breaktop in .455.

    Gosh, there are a bunch others.

    Someone needs to make new production M1 Garands.

    I also wish they would bring back the Marlin camp carbine.

    I don't know why Remington didn't just bring back the Model 51. It was a cool pistol. I guess they wanted 9mm instead of .380.

    Because, despite what all the M51 guys were saying when the R51 started having major problems, a reissue of the M51 would have been an epic FLOP. It's larger and heavier than most other .380ACP pistols with similar capacity such as the vast swath of pocket 380s.

    It'd be very niche. What would it be competing against? Basically, the Walther PPK and the Browning 1911-380. The PPK has the classic appeal that the M51 will never have and the Browning makes 1911 guys happy. The M51 wouldn't even compete very well against the Ruger LC380 which is a tad smaller and much lighter.

    Besides, I think that the Remington wonks knew (or guessed) that their own pocket rocket 380 was on the way (which ended up being the RM380) and they knew that they needed a slice of the CC 9mm pie. The Pedderson design was probably the right decision because it really does have a lot of advantages, including not being just another browning lockup design in a frigg'n sea of the same. But their execution of the R51 was definitely lacking. I'm sure they'll get it right, but, daaaang... they're sure taking their sweet time about it. :(

  12. I think they got greedy & wanted to cash-in on the 9mm compact craze. The original 51, was not designed for 9mm Luger. For that matter, 'back in the day', pocket pistols were .25, .32 & .380 acp. Like 'Scotty' said - "I can't change the laws of physics, Captain"..

    I'd like to see the Heckler & Koch HK-4 reintroduced.

    I'd owned the .32 ACP and .380 ACP versions and they shot remarkably well.

    Never got around to buying the .25 ACP or .22 LR versions.

    It's funny how times and places affect things. 6.5X50 was pushing 2500 fps, over 2,000 ft lbs of energy, but was seen as too weak, as it was being compared to the 30-06 and 8mm Mauser.

    But the 6.8 SPC is running a lighter bullet at 2500 fps, 1600 ft lbs, and most Americans now think it would be a good military round.:p

    The 6.5 Creedmore is a modern equivalent, a few millimeters shorter in case and OAL, but faster, with more energy, and is available as an AR.
