CHEAP AMERICAN MADE GUNS!!

Recommended Posts

I know some of you could care less where your guns are made; but many of us do; this discussion is for those members.

:usa:Buy American, Hire American, America First. :usa:

More and more we see guns in the bottom feeder category that are American Made. Lets face it, until the last few years the only decent American Made gun that is low cost and wasn’t (arguably) junk was the Hi Point. We have come a long way.

The thread about the Stoger and the Canik (both made in Turkey) being under $300 made me think that we have better options for less money; even American Made options.

So if you like to buy cheap guns, and want to buy American; now is a good time. Even prices on some of the top quality, best sellers in the Industry have dropped.

The SCCY CPX we routinely see selling below $200. It’s currently made in Florida with the company in the process of moving to Tennessee. And it gets good reviews

Kel-Tec PF-9 right at $200 and the P-11 just over, and made here.

Diamondback at just over $200.

New models like the Remington R51 (brought back after a bad start) at just over $200 and the Mossberg MC1SC at around $300; we shall see.

Ruger EC9 at around $250 and Security 9 and SR9 at $300.

MOSSBERG MC1SC at $300; we shall see.

All the Highpoints at around $175. They have a big following… bless their heart.

And even Smith & Wesson Shields at $250 and Full Size models dropping below $300!! Proven performers.

I can’t wait to get a Yeet Cannon for myself. 

 

This is morning I delivered across the street from the S&W factory in Springfield, MA. Sadly, tours were not available.

Yeet Cannon! I might have to get one. 🤔

Some other cheap, American made pistols are the Ruger LCP and LCPII, and the Charter Arms line of revolvers, many of which can be found for under $300.

If you are not in a rush and not picky about looks or exact model you can pick up some good U. S. Made revolvers on the used market. Either locally or like @A.J. Holst mentioned. 

I think H&R and Iver Johnson revolvers usually come in priced under their worth. Just older style models. I have an Iver .38 S&W top break that is solid.

I can say I've got a Hi Point JHP .45 and its never gave me any problems at all. And I have put about 500 rounds through it with not one hiccup.   I can't say that for some of my other guns. I gave $175 for it out the door. I'm looking forward to the new Hi Point.

I have much more expensive pistols, but a Shield is on my belt today.

That RUGER WRANGLER at $199 has to give Heritage a sinking feeling. I suspect the saving grace will be that the Rugers will be hard to get.

I will have one of those this fall. I will also spend way to much money setting it up with an optic too.

If Heritage spent an extra $20 per gun and passed along at hard cost, could they improve them enough to give Ruger a sinking feeling?

I doubt it. I’ve not seen and held a Ruger Wrangler yet, but I’ve seen and held a Heritage. I can’t imagine Ruger making anything that low end, but I guess it’s possible.

Maybe we’ll get sub $200 Smith & Wesson revolvers. :woohoo:

I wish SCCY would make something like a .40 cal. They are real big on 9mm.

So is the buying public.

I’m sure they will. They just came out with the .380. So after all the wives & girlfriends have the .380’s and 9mm; the company will be wanting to sell to the guys also.

FTFY.

      I've got about 350 rounds downrange with the Masada as of today.  
      Basics:
      2 x 17 round magazines, with remarkably stiff springs. Comes with 2 backstraps (small and large), and optic mounting kit with 4 RDS-specific spacer plates and appropriate screws.   The optic cut cover and all the mounting plates are plastic. The RDS plates included are for: Deltapoint, RMR, Venom, and Romeo 1. Trigger pull is 4 lbs, about 4.5mm worth of takeup and another 4mm of smooth, non-stacking creep. Ambi mag release and ambi slide release. Steel 3-dot sights. Handling and shooting impressions:
      Good hand feel for me, I left the large backstrap installed. Trigger has a great pull, but trigger slap does occur on mine.   Out of the box, shooting a few mags of mildly hot 9mm earns you a stinging trigger finger.    After mounting a RDS, the trigger slap was softened and all but unnoticeable.  The Glock-type safety dingus isn't really a problem.  I'd put about 100 rounds through it before I installed the Vortex Venom RDS, and the trigger slap was unpleasant enough that I was considering getting rid of the gun.  After installing the RDS and putting 250 more rounds through it with considerably tamed trigger slap, I feel like it was built and intended for RDS use exclusively. Sights are very much a "combat hold" setup, where the POI is about where the white dot on the front sight is.   I was using a 6'oclock hold at about 10 yards and my group was about 1.5"-2" below the 1" dot that I was resting atop my front sight. Accuracy was about average for your typical $400 polymer combat pistol, about on par with my S&W M&P 1.0s, at least while shooting irons. The rear sight notch is a bit too wide for me, so that likely contributed.  With the RDS, accuracy seemed to tighten up to the point I had no complaints. Reloads were not as fast as I'd have liked.   The front of the magazine extends up into a "tab" that is prone to catch on the frontstrap side of the mag opening.  The mag opening has a pretty good bevel on the rear but not on the sides or front, which are thin; and the recessed area on both sides doesn't do you any favors, either.  The mag release button is a bit small and requires me to twist the gun just a bit to hit it reliably, but since this is an ambi mag button, I may just work on hitting it with my trigger finger instead.  At least the mags eject briskly. Slide release is large and easy to hit but not big enough to be in the way. The gun doesn't seem all that fat, but the only holster it would fit in is the one for my Steyr M9, which, along with the Beretta APX, has the fattest slide of any gun I own.  Fortunately, the Steyr, APX, and Masada all fit very nicely into the same holster, so that what I'll use. Reliability was 100% with my ammo, which are 115 gr coated lead reloads running about 1200 FPS. Summary:
      An exceptional value at a little over $400.   Trigger slap is something to watch out for, maybe it was just my gun, but installing a RDS made that a non-issue.  Due to its magwell, mag changes are a little slow.  Accuracy and reliability earn an "A" for me.  Sights adequate but not optimal.

      Thinking about getting a 9mm revolver. Needs to be ss, short barrel. what is a good buy? Taurus model 905 ss 2", or the Ruger sp101 ss 2.25, Charter arms Pitbull ss or there other short barrel 9mm revolver out there? Opinions, likes and dislikes. What say you?

      Seems like 2020 may be the year of the RMR. Seeing a lot of new guns pre-milled. Never been a RMR guy but this may create an interest now that I won’t need to get it milled and recoated. Just curious if RMRs are all standardized hole patterns and footprints though...
