I've heard the TC bolt guns are nice.
They are good for the $400-$600 range.

Remington!! Hands down if I could only choose one manufacturer. They have some of the best shotguns. AR's and bolt action rifles. They have also added the 1911 to their arsenal.

For general product line diversity FN is pretty hard to beat. They make everything from pistols to shotguns to .50 caliber machine guns. If they don't make the particular type of platform you're after, you probably don't need it.

Most of my collection is Colt, but Colt decided to stop making Pythons, Anacondas, and Troopers, which is a damn shame if you ask me.

I would probably move to another planet or start making firearms myself to offer an alternative to a state arms corporation. Life's too short not to be able to get the toys, ahem tools, that you want.

Remington for bolt action rifles and shotguns. Great rifles for very reasonable prices.

Winchester for M70's. Buttery smooth.

Colt for pistols, revolvers, and carbines. Nothing like a Colt for quality American workmanship at an affordable price.

FN for SCAR's. Who doesn't love an 8 pound .308?

SA for 1903's and M1's. Who's bright idea was it to shut down SA, anyway? Someone should have been shot over that, that's all I'm saying.

SEI for M14's. Since the rocket surgeons shut down SA, somebody has to keep the beast alive.

KAC for SR-25's. Stoner had great ideas and his buddy Reed maintains his legacy.

Ruger for GP100's. If it ever fails, not that it will, you can still beat someone to death with it.

There's no way I could live without those brands. I might as well move to Mars.

Ruger. I don't like that they don't have any lever guns in their lineup though. They did make the Red Label which I would love to own an example of, so if you consider that I would say Ruger. I can do without an AR with the Mini 14 taking its place. I don't consider the SR556 to be an acceptable substitute for the AR, though I have no basis for that (never held one, let alone fired it).

Default FN makes HI-Powers

Browning Hi Power, since Colt was _other. S&W would be in my top 3.

What Scott said! They are my New Fave American Company.
