Great guns that are no longer made

Hi everyone. If you saw my other post here I've been looking for a Fox Sterlingworth SxS recently. But this got me thinking. How many great firearms can you think of that are no longer made for one reason or another. I got to thinking how cool it would be if they came back into production. Here is a list that I can think of right now. However, Fox shotguns can't be on this list since they just came back into production through Fox Savage.

Ruger shotguns- both over and under and side by side

LAR Grizzley pistols in 45 Winchester Mag - I have one of these and they're awesome

H&K P7 - both the m8 and m13

S&W 500 bear gun kits - I always thought they were cool even though I would have a use for it

Bren Ten 10 mm

All the no longer produced Colt revolvers - Anaconda, King Cobra, Python, etc. They make the Cobra now and I thought for sure they would release a new one at the shot show. What a disappointment.

What would you like to see brought back?

Ithica model 37 featherweight (tootsie roll forend) - preferably 16 gauge, but they were all good. They were a pleasure to carry, fast handling, built to last, and the smoothest sliding pump ever made. Sorry Mossberg, Remington, Winchester, Browning and any other company that ever made a pump shotgun - you never even came close to matching the old Ithica pumps.

Marlin X7 rifles. They were probably the best budget rifle of the last 20 years. How about all Marlin (jm) rifles?

Yep, the old ones. If it doesn't have a tootsie roll on the forend it's a different gun !

Winchester Mod12 and 42
Remington Mod 12, 14 and 25
Pretty much any SxS made pre 1950, only way to duplicate that quality now is to get a euro gun with a 5 digit price
Springfield 1898 Krags, only because of how smooth the bolt is
Savage Mod 99

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.
