    Latest U.S. market leaders for semi-automatic pistol sales

    Here's an article showing latest BATF data for the largest firearms manufacturers for the U.S. market. The data is broken down by type of firearm, and what I found most interesting was the sales data for pistols, which are broken out separately from revolvers. The largest pistol manufacturers for the U.S. market are:

    S&W: 1,032,450
    Ruger: 781,704
    SIG: 536,774
    Glock: 175,696
    SCCY: 150,647
    Springfield: 81,377
    Taurus: 69,123
    FN: 61,510
    KelTec: 58,982
    Remington: 58,450
    Beretta: 57,411
    Browning: 50,331
    Walther: 43,248
    Colt: 31,987
    Diamondback: 24,270

    As someone who owns (and loves) a SCCY pistol, it's nice to see them not only in the top 5, but waaay ahead of everyone behind them.

    Sig vs Glock - I'm a little surprised. I thought everyone owned a Glock, even people who didn't have a gun owned a Glock.

    Not only that, but all Glock owners have several of them. I own three, myself.

    Shields and EC9/LC9/LCP are selling well.
    Reason why Rugers are selling well is the Price Point
    KTP sells the shields for 349.99,
    Rurger EC9 199.00
    LC9 249.00
    LCP 179.99

    At number five is SCCY!

    Is it really pronounced "sky"?

    I thought it was some insignificant blip on the gunmaker radar. Shows how well I keep up.

    Even people who don't care for Glock have one. Glock is unique here for it's the only firearm I ever acquired despite disliking the brand and design.

    I thought Beretta would be at least a little higher then where they are at.

    The reason for the surprises is because the data is incomplete. It only lists US manufactured firearms. So these companies that have plants overseas, and they import guns from those locations are not being counted.

    Same here...

    But, I also have a bunch of Rugers...I have just stopped buying new Ruger revolvers because of poor quality control.

    I agree with the possibility of the Glock market being saturated. Both Gramps and I had multiple Glocks in our preferred calibers. When we bought most of them there were not an awful lot of choices of other really reliable guns that were lighter weight than the all steel 1911's and such.

    Then all these new, well made, great performing guns hit the market. And: people try them and rave about them, so others try them. As a result those of us who already have several/many Glocks move on to other brands and those brands become the best sellers that perhaps Glock was 15 or so years ago.

    Just a thought.

    Right, but they were Sigs, people just don’t know any better. It’s like calling any personal watercraft a JetSki regardless of actual brand.

    About 90% of my gun purchases have been used Colts. My last new handgun purchase was a Ruger Match Champion GP100 10mm revolver.

    I’d be very surprised if Glock still isn’t the most popular manufacturer. There have been single stack subcompacts out for years now, yet when Glock releases a gun like the 43x or 48, people go crazy. And that’s all after the craze of the 19x and 45.
