I personally would love to see a new run of Mauser broomhandles in .30 carbine again at a reasonable price. I would buy two in a heartbeat. What would it take to do that? Buying the rights or blueprints or whatever?

What would you like to see repro'd that you'd jump on in a heart beat (dont say Marilyn Monroe )

I saw a show about it on the History Channel and they were pronouncing it "pep-a-shah" which was supposedly what the ruskies called it.

None.
Leave them alone.
They can never get it right.
Ever wonder why commercial garands are shit?
Ever wonder why commercial M1 carbines don't work right?
Everything is out of spec, as producing parts to GI tolerances is not cost effective.

Now, if you were talking new recievers, hey I'm all for it.
Recievers can be produced with exacting detail, like LRB recievers or the early Springfield Armory recievers.

Uh... what?

I thought the US military bought all of its guns from the commercial sector.

If we're talking only about guns that don't require special paperwork, then I'll join you in asking for the C-96. May I have mine in 45 ACP?

I originally thought this was reserved to firearms only, but since classic automobiles have made the list why not classic airframes?

I'd like to add a Boeing STERMAN to the list.

erm, have you ever heard of the Springfield Armory? The real one in Springfield, Mass, not the company in illinois that uses the name was a gov't armory that designed and built many of our small arms including the garand until it was closed in 1968.

Used to work for Bass Pro and found in the backroom this old shotgun circa 1900 or so that was a lever action 12ga. or maybe 10ga i dont quite remember. Anyways when you pushed forward the lever the entire bolt would come out of the rear of the gun to chamber the next round. PRetty sweet lookin, they wouldnt sell it to me for anything! I would like a bolt action 12 in production...Terminator on a motorcycle here I come!

(It requires a lot of machining, I wonder if CNC could keep the price under $1000.)
