How many other companies make a Model 19 or 22? The XD was not in the original question.
you are correct - i didn't put it on the list because i know it is way way down the list - study the ATF data published each year and you'll see it.

heck - the XD couldn't sell before springfield bought it and is spending a lot of money advertising it.
i know the Glock 19 and 22 is the biggest sellers of glock by a large majority and i have read that 32% of LEO have Sigs but didn't know which model

I need a friggin' vacation from the Interwebz.

Based on shear length of sales, the 1911 would win. Based on current sales, worldwide, the Glock is probably the easy leader based on military and LEO contracts and their pricing.

You can't compare a purchase based on what the most people buy. Remington's 700 model ( boltgun ) probably has more models in use than a lot of other boltguns combined. That doesn't make it the best.

As for the love/hate-1911/Glock threads lately....
Thank you JD, I couldn't have said it better.

Anyone that thinks that there are more Glocks, and clones, having been purchased since inception than 1911 and it's variants is delusional.

No way. Bottom line. Absolutely no way. Ever.

Come on JD, that didn't make you smile at least a little?

I do agree with you but still, not even a curl in the corner of your mouth?

No. Not even a little. I grow sick of these threads & even sicker of the reports generated by them.

Misinformation, opinions stated as fact and out right lies are beginning to creep into a forum that has tried very hard to make sure the information contained here was factual and could be verified.

There is a reason we let "hot" threads run much further than a lot of other forums.

I have never, EVER, seen someone work so hard at being a fanboy douchebag.

This forum gave G37 every quarter, let him run on and on and on about all his shooting buddies and all his experience with very little fact ever being given.

He stated his opinion as fact over and over and over again - and today it would appear the high horse got a bit too high.

If you like Glock, great. If you like the 1911, great. If you love both, or either one, great. No one here is disputing that.

When you want to talk out of your ass and state your jaded little opinion as fact - we have to call a spade a black card from the deck.

http://www.coolgunsite.com/pistols/colt%20production.htm

This chart only covers up till the end of ww2.
Anybody feel like adding these up?
Looks like in 1943 alone there were nearly 500,000 1911's made
1944 over 500,000.
Thats over 1,000,000 produced in just two out of its 100 years in production
