    Ruger revolver wish...

    8 shot 9mm sporting a 5 1/2" barrel with Bowen style target rear sight and interchangeable front.
    Probably have to be on a slimed down Super Redhawk?

    5" HEAVY barreled Blackhawk in 454 Probably have to mill in or make integral the ejector housing.
    My need to be a 5 hole cylinder. High quality target sights. Bisley grip!

    Agreed. Or even better, the sight set up that the WC 3” GP100s have. Pre cut for moon clips.
    Formerly known as xpd54.

    Many of their models need to come "optics ready", as Glock has done, with a MOS style topstrap.

    The rear sight still in place, but with a removable plate so an RMR type RDO can be added.
    AKA Mackay Sagebrush

    I've lost my tolerance for diversity.

    My only wish is for someone to make a red dot mount for GP100 series guns that actually holds zero.
    I shot the PX4 before it was cool.

    The top-strap thickness of the GP100 is more than sufficient for a removeable optics plate with an integral rear sight. Milling out a recess in the strap also would have the added benefit of eliminating the rear-sight cross-pin which is a perennial failure point.

    With this in mind - we should - create a wishlist.

    In the last few days (literally) I've noted a few things folks would like to see from Ruger

    1) 3" LCR in .327 Magnum
    2) LCR 'xL' a stretched/enlarged LCR frame in .45CP/.44 Special (i.e., a better Charter Bulldog)
    3) Super GP100 in .45 ACP

    ___

    In addition to new models what features/changes/updates to the existing Ruger revolver line would you like made?

    ___

    Also, we need to name a chief lobbyist.
    #2, but I agree with @fatdog that a six shot .38, sort of like a M65 Ladysmith, would be great.

    (Or a 3"Speed Six)
    You do what you can do. Every single day.

    Replace the Redhawk with a revolver that looks like a Redhawk but has the grip stud and lockwork like a Super Redhawk/GP100. Offer it in all the same chamberings as the current Redhawk.

    More revolvers with dovetailed fixed sights like the Wiley Clapp models. Particularly 7-shot .357 GP100's and maybe a .44 special.

    6-shot .38 special LCR

    5-shot .45 GP100 (if it's even possible)

    Carry Hawk on the flat top frame with plowhandle grips.

    Single Six (single five?) .357 mag.

    3" 6-shot .327 LCR (I don't know why this isn't already an option)

    Make something like a Security Six in 22 LR.

    Put the Super Redhawk grip arrangement on the Redhawk.

    No. Because it'll be leaf spring instead of coil spring. Defeating the purpose of the more reliable Ruger action.

    Pretty close to The Super GP100 - 9mm? https://ruger.com/products/superGP10...eets/5066.html

    So basically just get rid of the Redhawk and replace it with the Super GP100.

    More revolvers with dovetailed fixed sights like the Wiley Clapp models. Particularly 7-shot .357 GP100's and maybe a .44 special.
    That would be good.

    6-shot .38 special LCR

    5-shot .45 GP100 (if it's even possible)
    If a 5-shot .44 is possible a 5-shot .45 is possible.

    Carry Hawk on the flat top frame with plowhandle grips.
    All the Blackhawks are basically identical. The only difference between the Carryhawk and a normal Blackhawk is the bird's head grip and v-shaped rear sight which is available easily.

    Single Six (single five?) .357 mag.
    That would be cool.

    3" 6-shot .327 LCR (I don't know why this isn't already an option)
    Me neither.

    Right more Super GP100 versions.

    Security Six in .22 - they make an 8-shot .22 SP101.
    Seriously guys, are we not doing 'phrasing' anymore?

    2 3/4” 6 shot SP101 in 38sp - i.e. an updated Speed Six. Keep it as sleek an as slim lined as possible to show it is different and smaller than a GP100.

    3” LCRx in 32HR mag - without having to deal with 327 level pressure, maybe they could even squeeze in a 7th round. This would be a good “old person gun”, or even a good go-to for the new gun person who never shot but is interested in self-protection
