    Assuming you could pick three firearms to bring to, or back to, production, which three and why?

    There are a lot of very interesting firearms that either didn't make it to production or were discontinued.

    Can't think of individuals but as a group--- all the classic .22's from the 50's & 60's.
    Remington 511,512,513,514 and the nylon autos.
    Winchester 9422, 67,68,69, 52,74
    Mossberg. The ones made in the 40's&50's that had all the neat sight options
    Ruger. Bring back the long barrel(10"+) in the autos and revolvers
    The Marlin 39a and Brownings bl22 I think are still made, just stupid expensive
    I would add the Remington 788 might be interesting

      If I brought anything back into production, it would be a classic.
      Parker or "Elsie" (L.C. Smith) double guns.
      Just about any scatter gun in 16 gauge, especially the Win M12.
      Would LOVE to see another run of the Winchester "low wall" falling block rifles in a variety of calibers.

        I started deer hunting 12 years ago with a Remington 788 .243Win. A great rifle aside from the hard plastic butt-plate.

          The Winchester 62 or 62A, and in a .22 Mag. option, also.
          The Savage 99, in any and all modern calibers.
          The Model 12 Winchester, and include 16 and 28 gauge.
          Three is not enough!

            I think the Remington 600 series would be interesting. Also the .35 rem pump action. Some of the original Belgium firearms were of exceptional quality and value. The Springfield 03-A3 and 98 Mauser sportorized would sell. The Remington 742 in .280 Rem and 6mm would be nice. JMO

                Went on an extemporaneous bear hunt in the Adirondacks with a Guide friend of mine. He loaned me a Winchester 71 and gave me 4 shells saying don't waste them. He made me take off a ring before he gave me the rifle. P.S. He had us on the bears but nobody had a good shot at one - thick ground cover.

                  I agree with JHJIMBO that the 1903a3 would sell, but, JMO, it would need to be chambered for more than .30-06 in order to sell well.
                  The Burgess folding shotgun, because who wouldn't want a concealable, folding, pump-action shotgun?

                  The rifle I'd really like to be brought into production is John Wayne's .22 rifle. IMHO it would do quite well if it could be produced and marketed in a comparable price range to Henry's and CZ's.

                    Was that ring given as security for the loan of the gun?

                          My Father worked for Savage and needless to say we had some interesting models in the house.

                            I had the Marlin 39A, beautiful rifle, would not shoot for sheet. Also, IMO, it was a witch to clean. Got ride of it in less than a year.

                              There were several double gun manufacturers in upstate NY and the NE making them but I never owned one. I shot a few and never really got good with them. Never had a need for the Model 12 either as I am left hand and the 37 fit the bill for me. Also I always thought the 12 was overated.
