    Ithaca pump shotguns. I know there are lot of them still around, but they should still be building them. I used one a few times when I was a teenager and I loved it. It was light weight and felt good.

    Browning BPS is the M37 reborn.

    Every Taurus that takes a Smith and Wesson design, and then lets whatever blind squirrel that is charge of quality control send out clunky, unreliable paperweights instead.

    The Bren Ten and its various descendants. The Vltor version recently showed promise, but apparently they're cursed as well.

    So much promise and so poorly made.

    The Mitchell/Stoeger stainless steel Lugers of 1990-1993. Gorgeous guns, stunning to behold, most did everything but function. I've owned 2, neither was as good as my 1917 DWM, but I learn hard. I'll try again with another one when I can afford it.

    That seems like a great design to you?

    No, a great Idea and potential money maker if we were all forced to use them or nothing.
