    Interarms was a major importer and the Dragoon was initially made by Hammerli but as of 1976 the Dragoon was made in the US, see the following:
    MIDLAND, VIRGINIA & THE DRAGOON
    In 1976, production was assumed by Interarms Industries of
    Midland, VA. The decision to break ties with Hammerli was largely based on
    dollar depreciation as experienced in the mid-1970s. In other words, as U.S.
    currency was devalued, it became unprofitable to import the Virginian. Sam
    Cumming’s solution involved a 25,000 square foot plant that was built on the
    edge of a 350 acre farm. Ten of the 350 acres was for the production site, while
    the remaining 340 was farmed. At its peak, the staff totaled around 70, with
    most of the workers being long-time residents of Fauquier County.
