List of most-produced firearms

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page lists more than 100 small arms designs which have been produced in numbers exceeding one million since the late 18th century. Many more types have been made in the hundreds of thousands. Many of the firearms on this list are military weapons which were used during both World Wars, so it is unsurprising that they were manufactured in such high numbers. Others are civilian hunting and sporting weapons, which generally sell very well in countries such as the U.S. and Canada. Many of those produced have been destroyed, deactivated or fallen into disrepair, but others will have been kept in working order and sold or passed on from one generation to another down the years.[1]

In 2018, Small Arms Survey reported that there are over one billion small arms distributed globally, of which 857 million (about 85 percent) are in civilian hands.[2][3] U.S. civilians alone account for 393 million (about 46 percent) of the worldwide total of civilian held firearms.[4] This amounts to "120.5 firearms for every 100 residents."[5] The World’s armed forces control about 133 million (about 13 percent) of the global total of small arms, of which over 43 percent belonging to two countries the Russian Federation (30.3 million) and China (27.5 million).[6] Law enforcement agencies control about 23 million (about 2 percent) of the global total of small arms.[7]

When the US transitioned to the Springfield Model 1903, the US began to give and sell many of its Krag rifles to Caribbean nations including Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Nicaragua. The Norwegians used the Krag from the early 1890's up until the Germans invaded in WWII, whereupon they built limited numbers for the Germans. The rifle would also see limited use in the Boer War in Liberia.[167]
