They do, along with cars. I know their car division is owned by Hyundai not sure about the rest of their goods. Along with that Hyundai's car division only makes up a small amount of what they do. I believe most their income is from steel and other goods. Bottom line I think they make close to everything in S. Korea. And there's are little S. Korea economics lesson for the day.

Side note: Ford use to make ammo...and it was really good stuff, but they didn't want that to be part of their image so they got out of the business.

Yep, they sure do make TVs. That pistol is a bit on the heavy side though, as I remember it. Thye also made it in 9MM a while back.

In addition to cars and electronics they make some decent household appliances. (The AC in one of my apartments was a Daewoo.) My question is, what is a "SINGLE/DOUBLE/FAST ACTION SEMI-AUTO" ?

while looks maybe deceiving, I dare say it looks like a solid, decent pistol.....

The Dewoo guns are very solid. That weapon in the pic is D/A and S/A after the first shot. Hi Cap mags as well. Something similar to the Sig 226 but with a steel frame.

I put a mag-full through one of the 9mm models that some guy had at the range one day. Even though I've never been a fan of DA/SA I thought it was a pretty decent-shooting gun. It was very comfortable to shoot (of course, it was just a 9), the sights were pretty good (from what I remember) and the accuracy was satisfactory.

They also make some of the best Heavy Equip. around. Mining/tunneling and other types of machinery. Very good quality.
The guns are very very good....Century arms is the importer for DaeWoo.......Ive had a 9mm and a 40...the 9mm was a shooter.
Shoot well.

It is not unusual for a non-traditional manufacturer to produce firearms, but it usually happens during times of war. The M1 carbine was made by companies from Underwood (typewriters) to Rock-Ola to IBM. In the case of Korea, I am guessing every plant there may have something to do with weapons or military having such a weird and unstable neighbor to the north.
It sure looks like a nice gun to me!

I own a WWII 1911 .45 made by Remington Rand. They made typewriters and sewing machines before the war.

If I'm not mistaken, Remington Rand acquired the machinery from Singer (sewing machines) after Singer produced 500 pistols. Which, by the way, are some of the most valuable guns around (because there were only 500 made).

You're correct Matt, Singer's equipment was place in the "equipment pool" at Rem-Rand on, 25 May 1942.

Remington Rand was formed Jan. 1927, from the Remington Typewriter Co.

I saw one of these Daewoos at a gun show. It looked stout. I was tempted to buy it just to match my TV and VCR.
