Taurus: Brazil. Rock Island Armory: Philippines. Norinco: China. Armscor: Philippines. American Classic: Made by Armscor. Firestorm: Made by Metro Arms, Philippines. This one is heart-breaking: Springfield Armory: Imbel makes the receivers and apparently some other parts . Imbel: Brazil! :banghead: The only company that as far as I can tell makes everything in the USA is Kimber! Don't get me wrong. It's not that I think 1911's made elsewhere in the world are sub-standard. I don't believe they make a bad pistol. If they did they wouldn't be getting glittering reviews. Rock Island Armory for one is an amazingly popular 1911 here in Western Missouri. I almost always see one at the range. But the 1911 is an American designed icon! What the AK-47 is to rifles, and the Remington 870 is to shotguns, the 1911 is to pistols. Yet I could only turn up one stinking company that makes a completely American 1911? When searching for companies those are the ones I found. Did I miss one? Any one at all?
