Suggestions for Ruger (Page 1 of 4)

Ruger has proven time and time again that they are open to customer feedback and oftentimes incorporates those ideas into new models. What new product ideas or alterations do y'all have for Ruger/Marlin?

I have a quite a few, but I'll only list a couple so that everyone can play.

1) Fact: standard Hogue rubber finger grips used on various revolvers are tactile and absorb recoil well. Also fact: original rubber grips on GP and SRH are attractive with their wooden insert, but don't fit everyone as well nor reduce felt recoil as well. Suggestion: combine the two with a new rubber finger groove grip with wood insert. Cocobolo, walnut, maple Etc.

2) Bring back the model 39. It's expensive and it won't compete with low end .22s, but it will sell. Make stainless versions as well. A stainless model with laminated grey stock that comes from the factory with a picatinny rail and rear peep sight would be pretty sweet!

That grip suggestion is .

The original rubber/wood grips are perfect. Big, squishy, finger-grooved overmold grips are all fucking terrible.

Use Marlin levergun knowledge + Ruger "making shit" knowledge to produce affordable lever action rifles in .500 S&W and .460S&W/.454Casul/.45Colt.

Get a license to manufacture a distilled copy of the Laugo Alien. Make a distilled version (that works!)and offer it around $1k. This is the way.

Ruger needs to make a double rifle chambered in .45/70, 470 Nitro and 500 Nitro.

Marlin needs to build a .500 S&W chambered lever gun.

I could get behind a SS Model 39.

Ditch the push button safety on the Marlin lever guns.

This,  

marlin style rifle, in pistol calibers, mag fed,  threaded with optic rail. Mag usage could really be a big plus with lever operation.  Use glock mags, or even 1911 / desert eagle style mags for big calibers or rimmed calibers, like 44mag, 357 mag, .   Single stack 5- 10 rd mags for rifle calibers, like 300 blk, 7.62x39, .308 win. etc. The single stack mags keep the slimline lever feel, but make loading / unloading faster / easier, and still 50 state legal.

A model like that , in addition to the usual fuddy style would sell well IMHO, especially in ban states where 10+ mags are frowned on and semi autos heavily restricted, plus tactical / suppressor crowd, hunters, etc.

Most people hate those Hogue grips and the model 39 would be around $800-900 in today’s market. That’s a lot  for a .22...

Ruger needs to ditch the blade style two stage triggers.

Make the Nodak Spud irons a factory option on the American Ranch.  

a walnut stock on the American Ranch that makes it look like a little 1917 Enfield would be cool, too.

I forgot they own Marlin now.  

Slimline mags for rifle cartridges is a good idea, but what hell might as well make a 5.56 that accepts AR mags too...
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 12:11:28 PM EST
I want a Gunsite Scout in 300 BLK.  And the PCC needs additional mag wells such as Sig, HK, CZ, etc.

Marlin levergun in .327 Federal Magnum.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 12:15:08 PM EST
Bring back the Deerfield and medium frame flat top Blackhawks. And while they're at it, take that damned attorney mandated owners manual soliloquy off of the barrels.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 12:16:29 PM EST
Make a .22 magnum/.22LR conversion kit for the 5.7 pistol.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 12:16:47 PM EST
-3" LCRx in 9mm
-Marlin 1894 SBL (1 in 20 twist please) and CSBL, ditch the safeties
-1894 in .480 Ruger using that super steel from the Super Redhawks, 16" gun holding 8 rounds of 400 grain fuck you's
-A magazine in grip, sub-gun style pistol
-Upgrade the Redhawk to the GP100 grip frame, I really don't want the smaller grips of the Redhawk or the larger frame of the SRH. Lacking that, a Toklat in .44.
-a 5 shot Super Blackhawk in .500 Special
-.450 American that takes AR mags
-a 77/45 Colt
-a stainless .30-06 Hawkeye with a hinged floorplate and express style sights
-EC9 or LC9 in .22LR, something a touch bigger than the LCP in .22

An improved P90 to compliment their 57 pistol. Set it up to use P90 mags.

Bring back the 99/44 Deerfield carbine, and make it in 44 and 357. I'm down for one of each.

Make .45acp & 10mm versions of the carbine/pistols. Make Marlins not suck like Remington did. Make some American bolt actions in .357 & .44 mag

This.

I hate hate hate fingergroove-style grips.   Double-hate them on a revolver -- they're just wrong and cheesy-looking on a revolver.  OK, perhaps I'd make an exception for your .500 hand cannons, where you need every trick just to hang on to the stupid thing.  But I digress.

The original Ruger smooth rubber and wood panel insets are perfect, and unmatched by any other factory grip.

Make some quality Marlin lever actions. Make them without safey. Stainless models in 357 and 44 mag.

Ehh. Just do another licensing deal or whatever they did with Keltec for the LCP and do a 5.7 CMR 30.

"Ruger needs to make a double rifle chambered in .45/70, 470 Nitro and 500 Nitro."

Call it the #2?

A #1 in .22LR, scaled down to fit the round.

Revisit the Ithaca 49 .22 single shot design, only an all steel and wood version.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 1:02:08 PM EST
LCP in .32 ACP please
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 1:02:30 PM EST
Non-takedown PCC (I assume this would make it lighter and cheaper)

Folding stock for the above

I would like a new production 39 with a threaded barrel but only if good quality. Would be awesome silencer host. I would feel bad messing with an old one.

^THIS. I could never understand why they discontinued the carbine. Great deer hunting gun for a young person to start with.

I vaguely remember something about jamming/feed issues, but not sure that was the reason for discontinuation.

A small/youth cricket style rifle in 9mm.

SP101 in 10mm.

Lever action 357!
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 1:11:22 PM EST
3" LCR in 9mm and .327 FedMag
.327 FedMag ALL the Marlin things

2" - 3" Super-LCR for larger cartridges that isn't questionable like a Charter or Taurus, like for .44 Special...and .45ACP and 10mm
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 1:13:33 PM EST
Bring back Red Labels and the .44 carbines please

Lever guns in "auto" calibers like 9mm and 45.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 1:25:18 PM EST
I forgot about the .44 carbines! I think I'd prefer the tube mag over the rotary mag. I'm surprised Ruger hasn't made a Mini in .350L or .450BM; they chamber them in just about everything else and Lord knows they've offered Minis in odd calibers before.

I see someone's forgotten the MP9.  I got to shoot one of these at a special operations convention, exactly like an Uzi!  I don't think anyone ever picked it up for use.

I think they suck! Wide at the bottom like 70s bell bottom pants and too short of a grip. The insert wooden panel idea however is sound. Make the wood insert follow the Contour of the grooves guys. I'm not talking about just throwing the insert into the current Hogue finger groove grips. this would be beautiful and functional at the same time.

Get Marlin up and running quickly by kicking out the 1894 in .357 magnum. This must be the most in-demand rifle of that type on the market right now.

I thought the same thing when I saw that post. Just pitch the stock and add a piece of picatinny rail to the rear.
