    Hey all,

    For idle curiosity I'm looking to throw together a list of which guns are manufactured in which countries.

    (Ex: Springfield XD .45 = Croatia)

    Please feel free to post where yours was made, or any links to already existing lists- thanks.

    ***UPDATED***

    If you feel adventurous, look in the Wikipedia list and add your gun if it's missing.

    Cool, but also which gun models?

    Example: Taurus PT-145 = Brazil

    (BTW, this list is just for fun, just post if you know or have it handy- not looking to waste folks' time on legwork I'd do myself if I was really intent on researching.)

    with the global manufacturing world we live in, nailing down where all the parts and peices came from and where it was assembled is nearly immpossible.

    It would take me too long to figure it out. Once I did a list of every country I've used ammo from and it was quite impressive, Guatemala, Malaysia, Chile,for examples.

    For guns I've owned or own ones from every continent except Antartica.
