okay, here's just something for fun. if you could ask the powers to be or they asked you, what rifle or caliber would you like to be offered as a new model, what would it be? you can answer with a gun they offer but in a caliber they don't or some type of gun they don't currently offer. here are my suggestions. the X7 series offered in 6.5x55 Swedish, the X7 in 7x57 and the XS7VH in 220 Swift. the other suggestion would be for Marlin to come out with their version of the Colt 1911.
