In the previous article, we discussed some of the leading manufacturers of guns with global supply chains. Let us take a look at a few other manufacturers who have contributed significantly to the  firearms industry. 


Sig Sauer was founded in 1976. It was a joint venture of two mega industries namely Schweizerische Industries Gesellschaft (SIG) of Switzerland and J.P. Sauer & Sohn of Germany. Hence, the name ‘Sig Sauer’ is used by both these sister companies. Sig Sauer was originally a small-scale company that produced wagons and railcars for trains. However, to meet the demands of the Swiss army, they changed their line of manufacturing and started producing rifles. Sig Sauer is now one of the leading manufacturers of firearms. 

What sets Sig Sauer apart from other manufacturers is the excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail. Sig Sauer is credited for making some of the most exquisite and reliable handguns like the Sig Sauer P226 Elite Platinum and the Sig Sauer 1911 Super Target. They also manufacture semi-automatic pistols, rifles, electro-optics, gear, and accessories for guns. 

Some of the most noteworthy models produced by Sig Sauers are as follows:

Keep in mind that Sig Sauer rifles and handguns can be pricier than their counterparts.
