    Where were your guns, the ones you bought new, made? Are there countries you prefer or avoid? Does it matter to you?

    Here's my tally -

    US: 14
    Austria: 2
    Czech Republic: 2
    Germany: 2
    Russia: 1

    Hey! Two to one US!

    I have a Browning stamped with "Made in Japan". :banghead:

    Sorry, that's just wrong. Shoots great but I try not to look at that stamping.

    Today the manufactoring industry is a global effort. Parts are made all over the world. A company will use the least expensive part it can get to it's specification no matter where it's made. So does it even matter where it may be assembled?

    No, they have an autoloader .22LR. Very nice shooting rifle, but made in Japan.

    Mine is like this one:

    My father has one exactly like it, same grade, but his was bought in 1968. It is not made in Japan
    but I can't talk him out of it. Yet :evil:

    If you are only counting NEW guns then this is the breakbown

    Japan - Howa 1500 .223 (Sold it, good gun, just hated the .223.)
    Saiga 7.62x39 - Russia (Just finished the pistol grip conversion tonight.:evil: )
    Ruger 10/22 - USA (Really tricked it out.)

    As far as I know these are the only "new" guns that I own.

    The Japanese make very high quality guitars. I can't imagine their machining in guns is any less than awesome.
