Hypothetical thread: if you had to buy all your firearms from only one company, for whatever reason, what would it be and why?

For me, it would be Smith and Wesson. They have terrific firearms and are able to produce a variety of firearms to fill my needs: double action revolvers, polymer framed pistols, quality ARs, even .22 pistols/revolvers. They have a good warranty, great customer service, and good quality products. To me, they have the most versatility. For me, if I had to only buy from one company, it would be S&W.

I know, it would be a nightmare if this came to pass. Just a hypothetical thread.

I like S&W also.

Arrrgh, just one. I guess Ruger.

They're as good as any, and better than

most.

They embrace innovation, and add an additional functional twist.

Like the Nambu-style slide on their

MKI,MKII, and MKIII 22LR pistol series, which enhances scope mounting.

Or the mini-14 started with the M14 action, and married it to the

.223 to create a legendary carbine.

I'd have to go with Ruger. They get the job done.

Ruger for their SR556 and Ruger GP100's

Possibly SIG for its Sig516 and nice pistols (though I am a revolver guy)

I suppose S&W is a pretty good option. Something for everyone.

For an out of the box/out of left field suggestion, I think CZ might be worth a look as well, especially if one can also count their subsidiaries (Dan Wesson, Brno).

Ruger hands down know that they make 1911's. S&W if there 1911's would do away with the external extractor. The company has to build 1911's for entry in my book.

I forgot to mention that S&W makes 1911s also, in my original post.

Ruger, because they seem to have an excellent selection of quality guns and amazing customer service. They cover bolt actions, autoloaders, single shots, revolvers, ect. The only major thing they seem to be missing are shotguns, though they used to make them.

Either Sig or HK. Like them both. Sig probably.
