Just curious, what precentage of your handguns are from foreign manufacturers. So a Sig that was made in the USA counts as foreign.

Two Sigs, one Heckler & Koch, and two Glocks.
Love my 1911's, but there's something about German pistols that attracts me, too.
March 6, 2008, 04:54 PM
3 out of my 6 handguns are made in the USA. 3 S&W revolvers. Then a Glock, FN and Sig.
March 6, 2008, 05:08 PM
Two, both are C&R - a Mak and a Nagant.
All the rest of my handguns are made in the USA - Colt, Kimber, Dan Wesson and S&W.
March 6, 2008, 05:16 PM
I have some made in the USA by foreign owned companies, such as Sig and FN, at least one made abround for a US Company (BHP) and a number made abroad by foreign companies. Canada, Germany, Spain, Israel, Argentina, Switzerland, Slavic Republic, Italy, Russia and Bulgaria come to mind. Then there are the "all US" Colts, Kimber, Ruger, Springfield, Smith & Wesson, Marlin, DPM, Bushmaster, Rock River, Winchester and Browning offerings.
I may be in the 50% range, by your way of counting. 100% were bought from either a US businessman or an individual US citizen.

11 of 15 are foreign (I'm including the RIA 1911, since it's Philippine-made). Most are Cold War era East European, plus a commercial Russian and a West German.
March 6, 2008, 06:27 PM
2 SIG's and 1 Mak here
March 6, 2008, 06:51 PM
100% but that's only because I only own 1 handgun. Mine was made in Germany and is an HK. My next handgun will be made in the U.S. however. Counting long guns as well, only 20% of all my firearms are foreign
March 6, 2008, 06:51 PM
I have 12 guns all made in USA.My next gun might be a CZ

Three domestic, three furrin. Soon to be 4 domestic.
March 6, 2008, 08:45 PM
You need to have "a whole mess of 'em" as a selection, cause that's how many I have.
March 6, 2008, 09:00 PM
Ummm, let's see...there's the Glock...no, I sold that one. Ah, the P7, nah, sold that too.
Oh! How about the Huglu...no, that's a shotgun; doesn't count.
And the XD? Well actually, that belongs to the GF.
So, where does that leave me? Zero? Yep...
Glock-free since '08... :)
March 6, 2008, 09:07 PM
10 Glocks (17's and 19's), 5 H&K' USP's (9mm and .45Auto), 2 NIB S&W 5906's and a stainless Ruger MK II Gov't. 6 7/8"
83.33% "Foreign make" handguns.
Glad to have them, too.
March 6, 2008, 09:18 PM
A Sig and a Mak - but a S&W wheel gun is in my future.
only 2 american guns and they're s&w 642 and a 442.

March 6, 2008, 09:24 PM
12 Domestic, 2 Foreign:

March 6, 2008, 09:26 PM
2 Maks, 2 Glocks, 1 Mauser, 1 Enfield, 1 FEG, 3 Norinco - about 1/3 of mine
March 6, 2008, 09:59 PM
What does it matter?
March 6, 2008, 11:10 PM
So a Sig that was made in the USA counts as foreign.So conversely, would a Springfield Armory handgun that was made in Brazil or Croatia count as American? ;)
My number is a little over 50% made off shore.
Argentina, Austria, Belgium/Portugal, Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, England, Germany, Italy, Japan, Massachusetts :rolleyes:, Russia, Spain.
Is this a great country or what? :D
March 6, 2008, 11:13 PM
Wow. I never really thought about it. I have multiples of HK, SIG, Walther, Browning, Glock, a Makorov and a Polish P64. And, thinking about it in depth, All my revolvers are American made, but, the majority of my autos are foreign.
March 7, 2008, 02:40 AM
Both of my guns are domestic. The third gun that will be added in a few weeks will also be domestic (either another Ruger Revolver or a Remington 870).
March 7, 2008, 04:25 AM
Two: a Glock 27, and a Taurus Ultralite made in Brazil. (of 6 total.)
March 7, 2008, 09:41 AM
I haven't taken possession of my P99 yet, so technically all are US made. All my handguns. Not counting the air pistols.
March 7, 2008, 09:49 AM
1 of 5. 20%
March 7, 2008, 11:57 AM
I don't think any of my 3 handguns are made in the USA. Springfield XD45, Walther P22, and CZ75B.
Croatia, Germany, and Czech Republic
I actually didn't plan it that way though, and I definitely have the itch to buy a true "Made in USA" handgun.
March 7, 2008, 02:16 PM
33% right now.
One XD and two Ruger revolvers.
On my to buy this year list (i allot myself 2 gun purchases a year) are a Ruger Redhawk .44 and EAA Witness .45
Domestics for my revolvers and foreign for my semiautos...not by plan those particular guns just appeal to me
March 7, 2008, 03:00 PM
2-3 Para, H&K
March 7, 2008, 03:10 PM
What about the Sigs that have a frame that was made in Germany and the rest of the gun was made here in NH?
March 7, 2008, 05:28 PM
Not as many as I thought: 4/11
1 Argentinian (Ballester-Molina)
1 South Korean (Daewoo DH40)
1 German (Luger P08)
1 Bulgarian (Arcus 94)
The balance are from Ruger, H&R, Colt, S&W, and AMT.
March 7, 2008, 06:54 PM
It's all about Austria baby!
March 8, 2008, 01:29 AM
Between my HKs, Berettas and Glocks, I have almost 50% of my handguns are imports :D
March 8, 2008, 07:45 AM
Only 1 of 17.
March 8, 2008, 10:44 AM
Let's see .....
Browning HP, "made in Belgium, assembled in Portugal"
Walther PP, pre-Nazi Germany
Mauser P-08, Germany
March 8, 2008, 10:57 AM
90 % of my guns are US made so I voted : 90% Foreign. What difference does it make? Nobodys going to solve the US trade deficit by buying US made guns only. Guns, gun design and gun quality is not limited to a particular country.
The Lone Haranguer
March 8, 2008, 11:07 AM
87% U.S.-made, represented by Smith & Wesson, Ruger, Colt and Kahr. Then one each of a Czech, Austrian and Italian.
March 8, 2008, 02:22 PM
All my handguns are foreign "make". There is no now days made in Finland handguns. There was Sako three ace competition pitol.
March 8, 2008, 02:50 PM
Most of my revolvers are US made, four S&Ws and three Rugers. I just have two foreign made revolvers, both made by Taurus.
However, only two of my semi-autos are US made, one Colt CCO, one Keltec P32. The rest are a half dozen CZs, two Walthers, two Argentine Sistemas, one Star B, one Makarov, and a Tokarev.
Interestingly, my primary CCWs are all US made (Colt CCO, S&W 642, and Ruger SP101).
March 8, 2008, 04:54 PM
3 HK USPs
March 8, 2008, 11:24 PM
Glocks are made in the USA as are many Beretta's. My Colt Juniors were made in Spain. But then, the barrel and action of my Weatherby Mark XXII bolt was made in Germany and the Mark XXII semi- was made in Japan. My CZ was made in well... Czech Rep. But these are all rifles.
March 9, 2008, 03:57 AM
I thought it ws 50/50, but actual count shows:
CZ, Pietta, Lyman, Rossi, Star
S&W(4), Ruger(3), AMT(2), Colt/Essex, NAA
March 9, 2008, 10:53 AM
Are any complete guns still made here?
March 9, 2008, 11:29 AM
2X West German SIG-SAUERS~! ;)
March 9, 2008, 12:52 PM
more than 1
March 9, 2008, 04:52 PM
March 9, 2008, 05:44 PM
I don't have any guns yet. I'm just lurking around this board to learn about what I should purchase first. ;)
March 9, 2008, 06:10 PM
I have one, an Argentine M1927, which is an M1911A1 made in Argentina on Colt machinery, under Colt supervision -- basically a 1930s-era Colt.
