I just want to buy firearms that is 100% made here. I already volunteer, I'm in the military, I'm currently going through the process of getting certified to teach hunter-safety classes, and there's a few other things in the works.

I'm just tired of everytime I turn around there's a made in (insert foreign country here) tag on something. I would like to own some 100% American-made firearms. Just my preference, that's all.

You know Sarge, the dinosaurs only ate delivered Pizza and look what happened to them... LOL

In order to get 100% "made in USA" ANYTHING these days, you'll probably have to get into your time machine and go back several dacades minimum. Even the steel used by US gun makers comes from China...

Bottom line is I want my firearms to have the stamp "Made in the USA" on them.

I don't even think my Nighthawks say that on them. But I know some guys in the Vendor section will be more than happy to give you some quotes on engraving.

Save up the coin and get yourself a good 1911. Nothing more American than that in the last 100 plus years.

Office Depot, "Made in the USA" stamp $6.95, Ink pad $2.59

All kidding aside Sarge, I understand what you're saying...

Yes sir, JD a 1911 is as American as you can get. A buddy of mine has one... it says Norinco MADE IN CHINA on the side. It's still a great shooting gun!

It's getting harder and harder to find a good Colt 1911 in my neck of the woods.

I'm still looking for a plain Colt 1991A1 .45 Auto. That's still my favorite handgun by far.

Well, there is his problem, he bought a Norinco.....

Name one good American made product the Chinese HAVEN'T ripped off and produced mass quantities of look-a-like shi'ite of.

Just because it LOOKS like a 1911, doesn't mean it IS a 1911....

Errrr.....

I don't think they've copied Preparation H yet..


Yeah but they CALL it a 1911...
So JD, you are saying that: "if it LOOKS like a duck, QUACKS like a duck, but FARTS like a dog... it's Chinese..."

I'm saying if you are buying a 1911 pistol, from a Chinese company like Norinco, you probably don't understand the heritage of the weapon in question.

But, at least your friend had the forethought to buy the best handgun platform going....
