All Springfields except the GIs are now made in the USA. So I was advised last week when I called and asked the same thing. I think they said the GIs are made in Brazil.

I have a loaded black stainless model that has "Made in Brazil" electro-penciled on the dustcover.

I dont really mind that it was made in Brazil. It is just such an ugly marking.

It's only the frame of the 1911s that are made in Brazil and they are polished and finished by Springfield in their plant, all the rest of the parts are made in USA and all their M1As are made in the US.

Imbel of Brazil, is a quality firearms manufactuer. I have two of their G.I.
1911's*; as well as a MIL-SPEC model. All of 'em say, BRAZIL- so what's
the fuss~? :scrutiny: ;)

Imbel does the steel work (including on the M1A), Springfield may or may not finish assembly here. Isn't the XD still made in Croatia?

Correct Re: the SA XDs. I was speaking only of the 1911s. They told me that within the past couple of years that they have brought back all 1911 manufacturing back to the US except the GI. Those remain in Brazil.

I was looking at the TRP, I think it's called. Wow, is that thing nice. The fit was unbelievable.

Does anyone know if Springfield uses forged receivers and slides?

Thanks for any info,

ALA Dan I respect you a great deal but for some of us buying american means a great deal. It is actually one of the buying points I run through my head when deciding if I should purchase or not. I am not saying I do not have any non american made but they are few very few. The springfield rep (so take it for what it is worth) informed me that all of the springfield frames are made in Brazil but the assembly takes place here in the US for all of them except for the TRP and Custom supposedly that is all done hear in the states. I have not been able to validate this but I have noticed that these two models are the only ones I do not see the Brazil stamp on the frame. Even the EMP I looked at had the Brazil frame stamp on it.

Att: Mr. Revolverguy-

Many thanks for the respect, but seriously some weapons coming into the
U.S. from other countries are very fine weapons. Some that I can think of:
SIG-SAUER, HECKLER & KOCH, WALTHER (old ones) come from Germany,
GLOCK's and Steyr's come from Austria, even Desert Eagles from Israel,
and FN's from Belgium; as well as Browning's from Japan are quality type
weapons. I don't limit myself just to weapons made within the U.S.; as I
see it, to do so would limit my knowledge. Now grant it, I don't own any
"junk firearms" foregin or domestic~! ;) :D

As I understand it, the guns above the 1911 loadeds are made in the US (ie..TRP, Operator etc)
