Default American-Made Firearms

I am just curious which firearms manufacturers are still truly American-Made. I used to think Springfield was all American, but found out their XDs are made in Croatia.

I'm a big supporter of American made stuff, so I don't want to buy a pistol that is made in some far off European country.

Here's a few off the top of my head.

Nighthawk Customs - Berryville, Ark

Kimber ( Pistols ) are American Made

Les Baer - Pistols & AR's

Dave Lauck ( D&L Sports ) - Pistols & AR's

I think Wilson Combat are 100% American Made - Pretty sure on that one.

Any of the good custom rifle stuff:

Lawton Actions / Hart Barrels & Actions / Krieger Barrels / Mike Rock 5R / BAT actions / Bartlein Barrels / probably forgetting a few but it's early...

Badger Ord. Action & parts

Barrett Rifles - Pretty proud about their USA made stuff

Chey-Tac ( Probably going backrupt - but still all made at home )

There are several AR production houses that are mostly USA made parts and labor, but to name any would just lead to someone pointing out they get take down pins from Argentina or something.

Some more will come to me later I am sure...

JD

Wilson 1911's are made here. I think Kimber makes em here as well. 1911's are a matter of Pride for the US.

Thanks for the input, everyone.

I'm building a new firearm collection, and I making sure it's going to be all American made. Kinda getting tired of supporting overseas operations....lol.
