    Domestically manufactured Firearms

    With the recent election it seems as the second wave of buying frenzy has started, one question that I have gotten lately is “what firearms are domestically manufactured”. Without getting into a debate on the how’s and why’s of who or what is better help me with a refresh my memory, getting old sucks.

    And to muddy the waters just a bit. Are we going to count those firearms manufactured in the US in plants owned by foreign corporations?

    This is like saying which American cars are made in the U.S. Here are a couple of examples:

    Winchester--(firearms only) Owned by a Belgian company. Some are made here, some in Japan, some in Belgium.

    Springfield Armory--some are made here, some in Croatia, some in the Philipines.

    The list goes on!

    Does the whole gun have to be made domestically? A lot of manufacturers get different parts from different places/countries.

    The XD is made in Croatia.

    The SA 1911's are either made in Brazil by Imbel or assembled in the US from parts manufactured by Imbel and shipped to the US. Not exactly made in the USA.

    I don't know who makes their M1A receivers.

    There are ARs manufactured all over the place, they're just not available in the US.

    Here's one made in China:

    The Libertarian in me says don't worry about it. Buy what you want. If some of the profit goes to a foreign company, that's okay. Trade is good. When civilizations trade, they tend not to war.

    Oly Arms makes numerous models of AR-15's, One of the finest 1911 clones around, and I believe they still make 10-22 clones and a magnum bolt gun, all in the USA.

    What about Kahr Arms? American made, Korean-owned. But the money you spend goes to pay American workers.

    Buying 100% Made in America is great, but not realistic anymore. Even so called "American" Cars are made using parts purchased from Canadian suppliers.

    I suggest that you just go ahead and buy the best firearms that you can afford to keep & shoot.

    And even so called "Japanese" Cars are made in large part in American plants by American workers. Subaru even advertises it.

    FN Herstal makes its FN pistols in South Carolina, along with M249 light machine guns, M240 medium machine guns and M16 rifles. Don't know where FNH civilian rifles are made (might be made there, too, but I don't know for sure). I'm about 99.2% sure that their PS90 and FS2000 personal defense rifles are made in South Carlina. FN Herstal also owns the Browning brand.

    Some Brownings are made here, others in Belgium (and maybe Japan?)...the home of F.N. Herstal.
