Wish phoenix would bring back the raven

Postby Holiday009 » Wed Mar 25, 2015 11:47 am

Wonder if enough of us contacted them, if it would help?

There's a market for it !

Figure they discontinued it due to the whole sns label though.

I wish they would and would sign a petition but I'd just love for them to slightly strengthen the frame on the HP22a and sell a "Pro" version without the ridiculous safeties, even though I'm so used to them it barely matters.

I'd love a new Raven. I wouldn't mind if they made a Raven with a polymer frame much like Cobra did when they revamped the CA380 in polymer and named it the Denali.

Why don't your head this project up for us, get a petition started, I guess it's worth a try.

All they can do is say no.

Thing is, I'm not sure if we could get enough signatures to matter. Besides that I wonder if they could even produce a Raven easily with all of that red tape wrapped around their factory since it is in California.

True.

Forgot about them being in California.

I wonder if the Phoenix model Raven (with the mag safety) would help. They might have to do a loaded chamber indicator. I have no idea how they'd make a loaded chamber indicator on that model because you really wouldn't want to put a hole in the top of the chamber. Maybe some sort of a firing pin block on the slide as an extra safety. I'm thinking almost like how a crossbolt safety works, but just to keep the firing pin from going forward in the slide.

Someone must still have the molds and the rights to the design.

It definitely would have to have the mag safety feature, and as for a loaded chamber indicator I bet a modified extractor could be engineered to accomplish the task. A second safety on the slide like the HP-22 has could be worked out as well. But all that work? I think the .25 Auto market is just too small for them to undertake it.
