    I wasn't aware the ATF kept a list of firearm manufacturers and their yearly production numbers on their website. While the list lags behind a couple years, I found the data kinda interesting. It breaks down the numbers by pistols, revolvers, rifles, shotguns, etc. Being a 1911 guy I zoned in on these:


    •Guncrafter Industries, LLC - 107

    •Nighthawk Custom, LLC - 1,709

    •Ed Brown Products, Inc. - 2,196

    •Wilson Combat - 2,723

    •Les Baer Custom, Inc. - 3,296

    •Dan Wesson (CZ Norwich) - 3,861

    •STI International, Inc. - 7,017

    •Para USA, Inc. - 14,287

    •Kimber MFG, Inc. - 104,303


    Kimber doesn't f*** around! I wish I could see Sigs 1911 numbers but it doesn't give those specifics, just their total semi-autos produced (357,728).

    If you think Kimber builds a lot of guns, look at Sturm Ruger's numbers...

    I'm just blown away by how many 1911's they produce compared to STI, Para and the custom 1911 guys. I know Ruger and S&W and such are pushing over a half million semi-autos out yearly, but those numbers reflect a bunch of poly garbage nobody's impressed with. :)
