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.

I would submit that Hi-Points have gotten expensive, lol.

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.

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.

      Just picked up one.
      Nice pistol.
      Comes with regular 3-dot sights (rear is height adjustable), two 17 round magazines. Mags are made in Italy and look like Mec-Gar with anti friction coating.
      Pistol has a external safety (ambi) and magazine disconnect.
      The loaded chamber indicator is on top of the slide and sticks up quite a bit with a round chambered.
      None of this really bothers me and the mag disconnect is easy to remove if so desired.
      Pistol has good accuracy and is easy to shoot well.
      Grip is thinner than a lot of similar pistols.
      Full take down requires punches/hammer so not as easy as some others.
      Field strip does not require a trigger pull but you must push the ejector down to remove the slide, and either pull it up or insert a mag to raise the ejector back into operational position when reassembled.
      Overall a decent pistol and after 600 rounds there has been no pistol related problems
      This pistol is as accurate or a little more so than my Glock 48, which I like a lot and carry.
      May put the Ruger SR9 into carry rotation.

      I was really surprised about a week ago when I got the call. I thought they had sold out this years batch. But the lady told me that some people had changed their minds and they still have some. 
      I picked it up last Friday and took it to the range yesterday.
      Its a 1942 Colt frame with an Ithaca slide. Finish is about 80% with some noticeable wear and scratches. The #1 is painted on the grips. However the bore is perfect. So while it has seen some serious use, its seems to have been well taken care of.  While it is a mix master, I noticed that there are no arsenal rebuild marks on it.  No, its not as pretty as some of the fresh arsenal rebuilds some folks got. But this gun has been there and done that for 77 years. Its got character.   
      It shoots just like an average military issue 1911. Nothing to brag about, but I was able to keep most of my shots in the black on a 12'X12" target. I attribute that to the small sights and a really heavy trigger. By my gauge the trigger is 8 lbs 12 oz.   Which is perfectly normal for a G.I. issue pistol.  I've got a set of new springs ordered. I may work on that trigger a little while I have it apart. Haven't really decided yet as I may leave it just like Uncle Sam issued it. 
      Yeah, I'm aware that some of you spoke poorly of the guns and the whole program. But I now own a piece of history. I like it!

      Anybody have one of these? What do you think is a decent price on one ? Looks to be excellent condition.
