I'd prefer the fluted cylinder for a tad less weight. These are smaller than K frames and maybe a tad larger than, is it D frames? that Colt used for the Diamondback and Detective Specials? As much financial trouble as Rossi seems to be in, it's probably a never gonna happen thing; especially without Interarms help again.

    I'll second bringing back the Rossi M720. I carried mine today.

    It fits in a nice sweet spot at 29-30 oz. Heavier than a 19-21 oz Charter Bulldog so it soaks up more recoil. Lighter than the 36-39 oz GP100 and various S&W L frame 44 SPLs so easier for carry with the same capacity. Mine just sits right in the hand, the factory grips as pictured above fit me perfectly and the gun just points naturally for me.

    I would definitely be on board with the return of the P7...and this time, HK...release the P7M7 (.45acp). While they’re at it, I wouldn’t mind seeing the P9/P9S and HK4 come back.

    Wouldn’t break my heart to see Colt re-release the Python and Diamondback, either...but not the modernized version like the Cobras...the originals, with the same quality.

    Yeah. It’s good to want things...

    Can you imagine the MSRP on those today? Well north of $800 I bet.

    Sig P239

    I was also disappointed when Sig recently discontinued the P239 model, a gun I have owned for about 20 years, shown below. This is a traditional P series Sig with aluminum frame and DA/SA trigger with decocker. It is a slim gun with single stack magazine, so the capacity is 8+1 in 9mm caliber. It weighs about 28 ounces empty. But I think the market for 9mm compacts has shifted towards polymer frames, lighter weight and higher capacity. For example, the new Sig P365 gun has a polymer frame, weighs 18 ounces empty and has a 10+1 capacity. I presume that very few people were still buying the P239, so Sig discontinued the model.

    I still like my P239, however, as the extra weight absorbs recoil and makes the gun easier to shoot accurately, it is small enough and not hard to conceal, and I can live with 8+1 round capacity for 99% of my anticipated needs. I guess I have become old fashioned.
