    I was looking at buying a Mossberg SA-28, when I saw a video by Randy Wakeman, where he mentioned that the SA-20 is actually made on contract by Armsan (in Turkey, obviously). This got me thinking, is there a clearinghouse for this information? I am particularly interested in semi-automatic guns, if it changes anything.

    I have a 390 -- the receiver is marked "Made in USA" and the barrel "Made in Italy." I wonder if the A300 is the same.

    You forgot to mention the many English brands that command very big
    bucks to buy.

    Henry single shot break open shotguns are made in the USA, and I think the Fox SxS was returned to production a few years back ($$$)
    Several Stoeger models are/were from Brazil.
    Squires-Bingham (now Armscore?) are from the Philippines.

    would buy a dozen or so Mossberg's..

    The price of the A-10 would buy several dozen Mossbergs - and deciedly so. And I would take the A10 over any Mossberg

    The Baikal MP153/155 or the Remington import Spartan 453 are very reliable. They're modelled after the Rem 1100 and you just switch gas pistons for Hi vs Lo pressure shells, no O-ring. I think they're chrome lined bores as well. I'm not sure if you Americans can still get these given the import ban of Russian firearms.

    The famous Canuck test video (the dude is Quebecois):


    For something more refined in the mid-range, get an older Winchester SX3.

    New: Beretta A400 or Browning Maxus

    If you want a more refined Winchester, get the SX-1 - that was their best version
