    Top firearm brands.

    I can not personally vouch for this story, but I came across it in a newsletter, "Page Nine", by Alan Korwin.

    Southwick Associates has completed an extensive survey of the top brands in the shooting sports. It is part of a 238-page report that received so much coverage you have never even heard of it. Are you using the top brands? Here they are:

    Top rifle brand: Remington (17.5% of all purchases)
    Top shotgun brand: Remington & Mossberg (virtual tie with 21.5% of all purchases)
    Top muzzleloader brand: Thompson Center (31.9% of all purchases)
    Top handgun brand: Sturm Ruger (16.7% of all purchases)
    Top scope for firearms: Bushnell (17.1% of all purchases)
    Top rifle ammunition brand: Remington (25.3% of all purchases)
    Top shotgun ammunition brand: Winchester (31.9% of all purchases)
    Top handgun ammunition brand: Winchester (22.0% of all purchases)
    Top blackpowder brand: Pyrodex (38.7% of all purchases)
    Top balls, bullets, or shot brand: Hornady (28.4% of all purchases)
    Top reloading bullet brand: Hornady (31.7% of all purchases)
    Top reloading primer brand: CCI (38.2% of all purchases)

    I won't say that they are necessarily the "best" but for a few of those that apply to me, YES.

    My pistols are Rugers.

    My HD shotgun is a Remington 870 Magnum

    And I have a few Uncle Mike's holsters I use on occassion.

    I think the word "Top" should be substituted by "Most Mass Produced with the Most Sales". Not that there aren't some good brands on that list. Can't say that I am surprised at all by this list, though.

    A lot of Glock owners are not going to like catagory, TOP HANDGUNS, results. With respect to warranty though I have to agree though. Ruger is right up there.

    In reality, to be at the TOP, you would have to be 100% in every catagory. Warranty, Customer Service, Failure Rate, Accuracy, Retained Value etc, etc.
    As far as I know, no firearm company has acheived that to date.

    Best!

    Top brands in the newsletter refers to top % of sales. It's interesting but shouldn't have much meaning to anyone on a quest for a desireable quality firearm.

    Interesting post, as much a gauge of popularity as anything.

    Of course it bears little resemblance to my personal collection.
