Keith, in case you see this, you know what would be an awesome final touch to your already terrific lineup?

A 4-inch bull barrel 1911. If you added that to everything else you already make, I don't think I'd ever have to even look at another 1911 manufacturer again.

Just think of it: a Wilson Professional, but by Dan Wesson. And you wouldn't have to mortgage your firstborn to own it!

I say - every model should have some runs with a round butt!

What do you think is the advantage of 4" bull versus 4.25" bushing barrels? I have guns with both and prefer the regular barrel guns.

4' bulls have less flip due to increased mass at the muzzle (not just my impression, but one shared by some of the pros and industry folks around here).

Well, if we are putting a wish list together for Keith, I'll add an Officers frame with a full lenght dust cover, with a commander slide. Ala Les Baer Stinger

I love the CCO but not the scalloped front strap/mainspring housing. I like the valkyre but not the cuts in the end of the slide.. can we get a CCO with 25 lpi checkering and all black small parts, trigger, barrel bushing, hammer, saftey, slide stop, and grip saftey?

If they're taking requests... I'd LOVE a CCO with a rail and an ambidextrous safety. I'd buy it right now.
I'd consider a Guardian 45 with the same.

Keep them coming boys and Girls!

Many of these things are already on my drafting board but the more suggestions the better. Plus they are always great reads on the forums.

How about different sight options on most models. Ledge, Adjustable (rear/fo), fixed low mount night. That would probably win you more business. That way most models could be adapted to the purpose that the shooter has intended based on the model they like.

Would like to see a PM-C in 10mm. Love my old CBOB but find I shoot more consistently with the square (rounded) compact frame.

How about a Specialist with no rail, many sight options and the clark style rib in Duty Treat or stainless in 9mm, 45acp, 10mm.

Additional color options on more models as you did on the test version of the Heritage.

A lightweight full size 5" 1911 in 9mm and 45acp.

More revolvers. I got the 715 reissue and I'd love a .44 mag. Also like to see a colt royal blue level bluing on the blued valors, and more blued model options.

It would be nice to see more models with a limited run of ambidextrous safeties (valor, vbob). I would be much more likely to buy a pistol without having to install an ambidextrous safety after the fact.
