I own firearms made in the US, Argentina, and Japan. And while I've often thought it would be neat to own a Belgian-made Browning, I'm not sure the quality would be any better than any firearms now in my safe. I do know Italian-made shotguns can be very expensive, and that some guys seem to have man crushes over any gun made in Sweden.

So then, which country or countries do you believe make the best firearms? Have you ever purchased a particular firearm model because it was manufactured in a specific location?

I have two Winchesters that I purchased because they were manufactured in the company's New York facility before it was closed, and another Winchester because it was made during a brief time in Columbia, South Carolina.

Well I used to coach junior smallbore and air rifle teams. No one makes rifles that can compete with the Germans like Anschutz, Walther, or Feinwerkbau on the target range.

If you've never heard the name, there's a good chance you can't affort it.

England and Germany and maybe Italy I think are tied at the top.
USA, Belgium, and Finland tied at #2.
Japan, Czechia, and Russia for #3.
