Tinker is a gunsmith and sword maker. Does beautiful work. Oh and an author.
Cool, do they make guns?
He makes some one off, unique guns.
Whoa, I would like to see some pics if you have any or links.
He used to be somewhat active on our FB page. I haven’t been on FB for a few months. Taking a break.

All my bases are covered here. Just didn’t want to remain silent like I wasn’t listening.
Your vote counts though, especially if any gun company folks stumble upon this thread. Also I’m curious what people want that isn’t available(aside from ammo currently wah wah..)

You can search for some things he’s worked on here...

That’s one. He’s made some from scratch handguns as well.

I'd like to see S&W bring back the 547 9mm revolver.
I'd like to see Chiappa sell THEIR 9mm revolvers like they weren't made out of "unobtanium".

More 380acp conversions of common 9mm carry pistols. 380acp is statistically just as effective at breaking contact with an assailant as 9mm is, yet it's lighter and significantly more enjoyable to shoot out of small pistols. So 380acp P365, Springfield Hellcat, Glock 43x, etc. Also, some more full-size 380acp pistols for mostly the same reasons.

I'd like to see the SIG P232 brought back. It was perhaps the most elegant handgun ever produced.

Tinker doesn't build from scratch firearms. He does do some really nice conversions though.

He made at least one one shot from scratch.

Really? How about a P-08 with an improved trigger and better sights?

I agree with rolandson on the P232, the SIG competitor to the Walther PPK. The H&K P7 was a pistol I'd like to see come back, it had some unique features like a grip safety and it was available in 9 mm, 380 ACP and 32 ACP.

Of all the Sig Sauers I've owned my P230 is by far my favorite.

A gun that shoots invisible 9mm, because that's all I've been able to find at stores....and 22lr, and .223...and .45ACP.
No shit.

I'd like to see 'em make a Luger. In .45acp.

LCR in .44 mag. I wouldn't want to shoot it, mind. But it might be fun to watch.

Full size revolvers in 5.7x28. Why not?

I find the number of mentions of 32acp as something desirable interesting.

sure, why not? smaller cartridge. "adequate" for sd, less recoil, larger capacity or smaller gun

I would settle for being able to find .32acp on the shelf at the nearby academy.

Does anyone make a full size 32? I don't care for compact and sub-compact firearms. My hands are just too damn big. I've never seen a .32 in anything that didn't look like a toy.

The Beretta Cheetah is the largest one I’m aware of. I think they still make them but they are very expensive. The military surplus ones are way cheaper. Meanwhile there is a variety of full size 22s, not as good for penetration for self defense of course but so much cheaper to shoot.

Not in stock here, but you might chase on gunbroker or similar

Just remember, .32 is good enough for Big Jim Walker:
