    It’s important to know where your firearms come from if you are a conscious consumer who wants to make sure your money is only going to places you support.

    IMPORTANT NOTE! I took the time to call about 90% of the companies on this list to verify which models are “Made in the USA.” I’ve gone to every extent I can to find each product’s origin; however, I can’t know who their suppliers are. You will need to do additional research if you wish to know where each component comes from, where the metals come from, etc.
