Probably Springfield.

I woudl bring out a Hi-Power clone that actually has two of he most popular mods on it.
Extended thumb safety
No-bite hammer

One of the major reasons that the Hi-Power is no longer in production, except for the BR9 clone made by Tisas, is the cost of manufacturing. However, I honestly can't believe that it could be any more expensive to manufacture than the 1911 with modern CNC manufacturing.

The Hi-Power has almost identical ergonomics to the 1911 and came primarily in 9mm.

Actually, nobody was buying them.

I have 2 thoughts. Colt would be nice. I would bring back the Anaconda....Maybe even a .454 version. Another thing that I would really like to see is from KelTec. If they could make a kind of stack and a half magazine, (ala Sig 365), for their little P32 to give it 10+1 in the standard size I think a bunch more people would consider carrying the tiny pocket pistol.

That would be appealing, nice idea!
