The famous US weapon. Pistols and rifles.

The famous US weapon. Pistols and rifles.

To some extent, the history of the United States is connected with the development of weapons. Starting from colonization and ending with modern wars, weapons influenced the progress of science and production. They gave impetus to the country's story and the emergence of new technologies and materials. Every critical period in US history has been associated with the advent of a new type of weapon. It should be noted that armament directly forms the image and perception of the country by other states. Our article will highlight the most iconic moments in the history of the development of American weapons and publish a ranking of the most popular pistols and shotguns in the United States.

General history of American weapons.

The roots of American weapons are steeped in the history of the conquest of the lands of North America with the help of a European shotgun with a muzzle like a funnel and a musket with a fuse. The guns guaranteed every settlement's survival, security, and food supply. It can be said that the colonization of America would have been impossible without firearms. Although, at first, the Americans copied the French .69 caliber musket by 1795. they upgraded the weapon with a rounded hammer and slanted bowl.

During the Revolutionary War, George Washington, while still a general, ordered the creation of the Springfield Armory, which later began to manufacture muskets. This 1795 model was put into serial production and served until the Mexican War. During this same period, Congress established the Harper's Ferry Arsenal in West Virginia to stockpile munitions and manufacture weapons. Thus, a weapons base was laid, which ensured the country's superiority on the battlefield and became the guarantor of independence.

A big plus for the industry was that the state did not monopolize the development of new types of weapons but allowed the most gifted artisans and entrepreneurs to contribute to the weapons business. They received government orders and could improve their offspring.

Eliphalet Remington was one of the first to put the manufacture of flintlocks on a grand scale. Over 206 years of work, he turned a small workshop into a weapons empire with the most legendary weapons in history. Among the outstanding specimens, the Remington 870 and its modifications are worth highlighting. Based on it, options appeared for law enforcement agencies, hunters, athletes, or property protection. Reliability, smooth operation, and comfortable ergonomics have made it the best-selling weapon in the world.

Remington was not the only supplier for the state. In addition to him, Henry Derringer and Eli Whitney supplied flintlock rifles to the army. Henry later became famous as a master of concealed carry pistols, and Eli was not a professional. He laid the foundation for the cost of weapons and popularized the idea of interchangeable parts.

The National Arsenal released the first weapon with interchangeable parts. Its feature was a shock ignition system and a significant batch of 275 thousand units. Parallel to this, the Model 1841 was produced, in .54 calibers, with a 33-inch barrel, without bayonet attachment. It was designed for rifle regiments and worked well in the Mexican War.

In 1855 Minister J. Davis initiated the mass production of the first .58 caliber rifled musket for the army. An innovation was the introduction of a roll of primers in the lock compartment, which was sequentially fed when the weapon was cocked. This idea was continued in 1936 when Samuel Colt released a pistol with a self-loading firing system. In addition, he introduced a method for stamping hull parts in molds, which made it possible to establish mass production and significantly reduce the cost. Colt became the father of the .45 caliber Army revolver, which was used by the army and the National Guard until the early 20th century. He received patents for a gun, shotgun, and rifle, becoming a monopoly in his niche. Everyone used the Colt revolver, from the army to gold miners and farmers. His name became a household name for the pistol, and the saucy slogan of his advertising company, "God made man, and Sam Colt made them equal," formed the foundation of American gun culture.

In addition to the revolver, the 1888 rifle and the 1884 carbine, caliber .45, were popular. During the Spanish-American War, they were supplanted by the Krag-Jorgensen model 1896 carbine. It was improved, and the cavalry in the Philippine Islands used the following 1898 and 1899 models.

After 1850, Colt's patent expired, and Smith and Wesson came to grips with the release of revolver-type weapons. They introduced a tilting system to the side of the drum to extract and load cartridges. This made it possible to speed up weapons reloading and make them significantly more competitive. The next hundred years practically did not change the design of the revolver.

But the restless minds of gunsmiths could not sit idle and decided to double the power of weapons by using not one barrel but two on one bed. So there were double-barreled guns. Burnside, Maynard, and Sharps packed gunpowder and bullet into one cartridge that was water resistant. Cartridges began to be loaded from the back of the muzzle without using a ramrod and a wad, which revolutionized the army's rate of fire and combat effectiveness.

During the Civil War, another fundamentally new way of storing and feeding ammunition into a pistol was invented. The idea of holding cartridges in the pistol grip and not in the drum belongs to Spencer Gun. Each cartridge was fed mechanically, one at a time, but allowed several shots to be fired in a row. One of the famous owners of the Spencer pistol was Abraham Lincoln, and you will agree that he chose the best possible.

Benjamin Henry improved Hahn's design and received a patent for it. Benji's rifles served faithfully throughout the Civil War and became a meme of the time. There were jokes about his rifle being loaded on Sunday and fired all week.

The idea of fast reloading was in the air and haunted John Browning. In 1883 he designed the revolutionary pump action shotgun for the Winchester Company. Despite almost 140 years of design history, pump action shotguns still have their ardent fans. A little later, in 1817, John released the Browning M1918 portable light machine gun, chambered in .30-06 Springfield. Browning was exceptionally talented and received 128 gun patents. The most famous was a patent for an automatic method of loading weapons. The ejection energy from the departing bullet began to be used to eject the cartridge case and reload without manual control. The Browning rifle, the M1911 pistol, and the .50 caliber M2 machine gun are among his most famous creations. All of them, at one time, were in service with the US Army and received the most enthusiastic reviews among professional weapon users.

Undergoing minor modifications, these models participated in the Vietnam Company, World War II, and the Korean War.

Progress did not stand still, and by the new era of warfare, the US Army received a light submachine gun from John Thompson. It was the first portable, fully automatic, a light weapon that can be considered the first machine gun. Colt produced the pistol under the name M1921. It had two versions of the magazine: a box-type magazine for 20 and 30 rounds and a drum magazine for 50 and 100 games. In 1918 Marines landed on the coast of Honduras armed with Tommy pistols. In addition, Tommy appeared in the Banana Wars and the Chinese Civil War.

Interestingly, the machine has received a series of nicknames: Tommy Gun, Trench Broom, Chicago Piano, or The Thompson. From the handles, it is clear that he liked the army, the police, and the criminals. Most of the gangsters of that time preferred him. Bonnie and Clyde were robbing banks, brandishing .45 Thompson rifles. Thus, it is not just a weapon but a milestone in history, pop culture, and literature.

At the moment, the most common weapon of the US Army is the 5.56 mm M16 (Rifle) rifle and its modifications from the Colt company. The circulation has exceeded 8 million units, and the M16 is in service with all US military branches.

Weapon. Pistols.

1. Colt M1911.

Perhaps America's most famous pistol is the Colt M1911. This is a semi-automatic 7-shot pistol chambered in .45ACP. The total number of copies exceeded 2.7 million. In 1911, the Savage and Colt companies competed to receive a state order for a pistol. The goal was to get a weapon with a fast load and a large magazine capacity. As a result of the competition, the famous John Browning, who works for Colt, won. He created, according to many, the best pistol in the world. Reliable operation in the most adverse conditions, great stopping power, accuracy, excellent ergonomics, and a large magazine are everything one can only dream of. It is worth noting that some modifications of the M1911 have a magazine for 7,9,17, 19, and 33 rounds. The US Army, FBI, and police are currently armed with upgraded versions of this pistol. And citizens use it for sports competitions and personal protection.

2. Remington R1 Enhanced .45 ACP.

The famous Remington did not want to lag behind any less legendary Colt with their M1911. They released their version of the Remington 1911 R1 semi-automatic pistol chambered in the powerful .45 ACP cartridge. The R1 was produced until 2010. Versions of this pistol differ in frame material, the presence of a silencer, a fiber optic red front sight, and more convenient fuses. Frames come in several types: stamped steel, lightweight titanium-coated aluminum, or carbon composite materials. The R1 100th Anniversary Collector's Models feature rich 24K and 14K gold finishes, inlays, and a fancy blue case. The pistol is distinguished by its trouble-free operation, excellent accuracy, and shooting accuracy. Despite the P+ cartridges, the R1 is a pleasure to work with.

3. Beretta M9.

The Beretta M9 has been produced since 1987 in Maryland for the US Army. The total number of pistols exceeded 700 thousand units. It is a self-loading pistol chambered for 9×19 mm Parabellum and has an enlarged magazine of up to 17 rounds. In terms of accuracy and shooting, it surpasses the M1911 but loses to it in terms of reliability in difficult field conditions. Beretta is compact, well balanced, easy to use by both sexes, and has moderate recoil, despite solid cartridges. There are options with an elongated barrel to install a silencer. Using the Piccatini rail, you can install a laser pointer, an IR flashlight, etc. The Beretta 92F modification is the standard weapon of the American armed forces.

4. SIG Sauer P320.

The SIG Sauer P320 has replaced the Beretta M9, which has dominated America's armed forces for 30 years. The contract for 580 million dollars and truly German quality is worth paying attention to. The model has more compact dimensions than its predecessors. Through the use of carbon fiber parts, it was possible to reduce the weight of the product. The main feature is the modular system. You can change different calibers at the shooter's request (9 × 19 mm Parabellum; .357 SIG, and .40 S&W) without using tools. Various sizes of handles with interchangeable forearms are offered to your attention. A wide range of models allows you to choose the required magazine capacity. Magazines are available for 6, 7, 10, 12, 14, and 17 rounds. The Picatinny rail allows you to use accessories and easily change optics. The pistol is in service with the US Army and Police.

5. Heckler & Koch HK45 pistol.

The HK45 was created by the German company Heckler & Koch as part of the Joint Combat Pistol competition for the primary pistol in the US Army. Let us draw your attention to the fact that over the past 100 years such a competition has been held only twice. The first competition was won by the M1911, and the second by the Koch HK45. His goal was to get a universal pistol, equally effective for the army's unique services and needs. The officers wanted to increase the stopping power of the Beretta M9, get a built-in Picatinny rail, and the ability to install a silencer. The gunsmiths did a great job reloading the HK45 with the .45 ACP round, adding some exciting details. For example, a very comfortable handle with an interchangeable part. The shutter delay button was specially designed for ambidexterity use. This self-loading pistol has a magazine for ten rounds and a decent service life of 20,000 shots. The German quality of the main parts ensures stable operation in all weather conditions and reasonable fire accuracy. The HK45 Tactical allows a silencer and is available in khaki and brown in addition to the traditional black.

6. Ruger LCP.

We can't get enough of this super-compact handgun that fits perfectly in a lady's purse. Ruger LCP (Lightweight Compact Pistol) was released in 2008 by the American company Sturm, Ruger & Co. This little one is mighty due to the high muzzle velocity of the .380 ACP caliber bullet. The pistol is used by the police as a backup or is suitable for the population for concealed carry and personal defense. A distinctive feature was a lightweight nylon frame, a Glock front sight, a blued steel slide, and a two-finger grip. Light weight - 9.4 ounces and short length - 5.16 inches, allows you to carry a pistol in a holster on your leg. Modern models have received very nice bonuses in the form of an extended magazine up to 10 or 12 rounds, tritium sights, and improved magazine removal characteristics.

7. Glock 19.

The Glock 19 was designed to compete for the best pistol for the US Army and Special Forces (MHS) but lost out to its competitor, the SIG P320. However, it is popular among female military personnel and as an alternative pistol in law enforcement agencies. The compact size and light weight made it possible to carry a gun covertly for plainclothes agents and ordinary people for self-defense. Glock 19 has a caliber of 9 * 19 mm, can fire 50 rounds per minute, and has high shooting accuracy. At the same time, it works like a Swiss watch, even in difficult weather conditions. The gun attracts with its versatility of settings. Lasers, IR illumination, mounting of any optic, a wide choice of magazines from regular to high capacity (33 pcs.), and many other accessories will inspire the most avid shooters. This is one of the most common handguns in America.

8. FN Five-seveN.

The FN Five-seveN is the standard weapon in US law enforcement and police. Special Forces and the American Secret Service also use Five-seveN. Civilians carry a pistol for self-defense and use it at sporting events.
Five-seveN is a lightweight semi-automatic pistol, caliber 5.7*28mm, with a roomy magazine and recoil reduced by a third. The 5.7*28mm cartridge in the SS190 variant can penetrate the Kevlar bulletproof vest that NATO troops are equipped with. The dimensions of the pistol remained the same as those of the Beretta M9, but the handling and weight of the weapon were reduced. Due to lighter cartridges, it became possible to have more ammunition. Stores are designed for 10, 20, and 30 rounds. The pistol is intended for ambidexterity use. The Picatinny rail allows you to hang a tactical flashlight or other equipment. Among the excellent additions, we highlight the presence of a safety mechanism that does not allow the pistol to fire on a sharp blow or when the magazine is extended. Tritium inserts in the scope greatly simplify aiming at night. When using a replaceable elongated barrel, it is possible to wind the muffler. According to professionals, the FN Five-seveN is a functional, convenient, efficient pistol.

9. Kel-Tec PMR-30.

This is one of the most convenient and thin pistols widely used in the USA. It was released in 2010 by the American company Kel-Tec for civilian use. This semi-automatic pistol fires .22 WMR cartridges and is suitable for those who can't handle the high recoil from more powerful cartridges. A large 30-round magazine allows rapid fire on a dynamic target. Kel-Tec PMR-30 is perfect for hunting small game, shooting varmints, shooting competitions, as well as for self-defense and home protection. Its light weight and size make it an excellent choice for concealed carry. The Picatinny rail under the barrel allows you to attach a laser pointer or an IR flashlight. The Kel-Tec PMR-30 pistol is one of the most powerful, efficient, and compact in its class.

10. Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolver.

After the Colt 1911 pistol, the most popular model is the Smith & Wesson revolver. It has been produced since 1899, by our time. This iconic revolver was tested during World War II, the Vietnam War, and the Korean War. Initially, it was designed for the army and police, but after the war, it became trendy among the population. The total circulation is 9 million pieces. This classically shaped revolver has a modern twist and combines the best of both worlds. The walnut grip is paired with a blue 4" gunmetal barrel and blue frame. The 10 model fires .38 caliber cartridges in a traditional flip-up six-shot turret. This is not the most penetrating caliber, but the revolver shows an excellent rate of fire. At the same time, trouble-free and accurate work is guaranteed from one of the most prominent firms in history. Smith & Wesson provides every customer with lifetime service for their products. The revolver is excellent for concealed carry due to the lack of a protruding rear sight. The J-Frame is also very popular due to its reduced size. It is perfect for competition and self-defense.

11. Smith & Wesson M&P (Military & Police).

A more modern model from Smith & Wesson from 2005. It is focused on the needs of the army and police but is available for sale to the public.

12. Springfield XD-S Mod.2.

This is a compact pistol with considerable abilities. The XD-S Mod.2 is extremely common in the USA. Due to its small dimensions (16.5*11*2.5cm) and weight of 23 ounces, the gun is invisible under clothing. This little guy has some seriously destructive power in .45 but also uses 9mm, .40sw. Of the features, it is worth highlighting the presence of Drop Proo, a smooth trigger stroke, and a unique non-slip texture of the handle. The pistol has three sights: fiber optic front sight, rear sight with three points/tritium front sight / LCC. The optics are mounted on the slide without a mounting plate and do not interfere with using a mechanical sight if necessary. It has two magazines for 5 and 6 rounds.

The front, rear, and trigger are designed so that the parts cannot catch on clothing, and the gun will be invisible under clothing. The primary use is for personal safety.

15. Stance 9mm.

Savage Arms released the Stance pistol for the first time in a hundred years. She entered the competition for a new semi-automatic pistol for the US Army but was overtaken by Colt with her model M1911. The gun turned out to be relatively light, compact, and suitable for concealed carry—overall length 15.2 cm, weight 620 gr., barrel length 3.2 inches. The steel magazine can hold 7, 8, and 10 rounds and has a polymer heel with an extension. The pistol is chambered for 9x19mm or .45 ACP.

This is an excellent weapon for the second line of defense; inexpensive, reliable, and adapted for single and quick shooting.

Weapon. Shotguns.

16. Remington 870.

The Remington 870 is one of the most famous pump-action shotguns in American history. Its numerous modifications have found application in all spheres of American life. Hunters and homeowners consider it the leader in the rate of fire and stopping power. The police received a gun that could fire shots, rubber bullets, gas grenades, and conventional ammunition. Although the Remington 870 was initially positioned as a hunting rifle, in 1966, the army adopted an improved model, police, and the FBI.

Among the features, we note the manufacture of parts from a single piece of high-quality steel. This made the gun phenomenally durable and virtually unkillable in the most unstable weather conditions. In addition to options with a single barrel, there are also double-barreled ones—multiple modifications allowed to expand the list of ammunition. There are 12, 16, 20, and 28 gauges among them. The magazine will hold from 3 to 8 rounds. More than 15 models can be modified to your liking by changing the barrel, stock, and magazine. This is the most reliable, convenient, and budgeted weapon, created with the idea that good things should not cost sky-high money and must serve more than one generation.

17. Kel-Tec KSG (Kel-Tec Shotgun).

The Kel-Tec KSG is a rather curious modern shotgun with an exciting design. It includes not one but two stores located on the same plane. But only one of them remains working. The switch regulates the supply of cartridges from a particular store. Each store holds seven pcs. 12 gauge or 6 pcs. 18.5 gauge. It is worth noting that it is possible to quickly change the caliber using the same switch, throwing all the cartridges out of the magazine. Loading cartridges is done manually, one at a time. The derailleur bullpup system works equally well for right or left-hand dominant people. The stock is equipped with a soft butt pad that softens the recoil. And, of course, without the Picotinni bar, it is difficult to imagine a modern weapon. So, it is possible to hang various day and night optics. Among the advantages, we note a short barrel, increased magazine capacity, fast reloading, good ballistic qualities, and excellent uptime.

18. Mossberg 500.

We would like to introduce you to another legendary shotgun in American history, the Mossberg 500. Its inventor was fantastically gifted both technically and entrepreneurially. Mossberg patented about 100 gunsmithing inventions and propelled his company into a million-dollar profit during the Great Depression. An incredible number of Mossberg 500 shotguns in 11 million pieces were sold at home and outside the States. Note that these weapons are wholly produced in the United States and are famous for their impeccable quality.

The Mossberg 500 is an interchangeable pump-action shotgun from which 41 models have been created. You can create your shotgun for individual needs with a base in the form of a receiver and bolt. Adding barrels of different lengths to the design, with the different caliber and choke options, changing the magazine's capacity, or upgrading the stock makes it possible to save money on buying a couple of guns. Mossberg has created a fantastic construction set, with many build options regularly updated with new items. This way, it became possible to meet every shooter's needs, from severe military operations to home security. Mossberg 500 uses the latest technology and offers products for every taste, budget, and body structure.

19. Marlin Glenfield Model 60.

The Marlin Glenfield Model 60 is manufactured by Remington Arms in Huntsville, Alabama. This is a semi-automatic rifle in .22 LR. It is extremely popular with small game hunters and target shooters. Due to its low price and large ammo capacity, it is suitable as the first weapon for inexperienced hunters. Despite the modest budget, the rifle has good accuracy and durability. This fact made it one of the most widely used rifles in the country.

20. Thompson/Center Encore 209x50 Magnum Muzzleloader.

This luxurious American weapon is known for having multiple clones. Encore has a stylish and elegant appearance without losing high quality and ballistic performance. Thompson has never skimped on materials and has always taken only the best. Encore 209x50 is no exception.

It does not need to be configured, just take it out of the package, and that's it; it's ready to use. Simple, comfortable, beautiful, and made to last - that's what we look for in the best products.

21. AR-15.

Ignoring one more purely American weapon - the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle is impossible. The circulation of 15 million pieces across America speaks of exceptional value and affordability. As conceived by the designer, it was supposed to cover the needs of the army, police, and special forces as an assault rifle. Under the name M16, it is still the primary type of small arm of the US Army. It was distinguished by low weight, rate of fire, reduced recoil force, two modes of use (automatic and semi-automatic), increased penetrating power, and exceptional accuracy. The company faced financial problems and brought the AR-15 to the civilian market. Naturally, several changes were made, designed for practical use. The design received a more modest caliber of cartridges and a reduced magazine. By reducing the weight of the cartridges, the initial speed increased, which led to an increase in lethal force and the distance of destruction. These qualities attracted the attention of big game hunters throughout the country. In addition, it began to be used for self-defense and protection. The general excitement was fueled by a ban on using more than 15 rounds in the store.

Increased demand contributed to the fact that, in addition to Colt, Daniel Defense, Barrett Firearms, ArmaLite, Smith & Wesson, ArmaLite, Bushmaster Firearms International, and a dozen other foreign companies took up the production of AR-15. It is worth noting that the same weapon has subtle differences and many Americans prefer the AR-15 from a particular manufacturer. So, for example, the rifle from Bushmaster, in the Predator model, is very much appreciated by many hunters. We understand the AR-15 for its versatility. It is excellent for multi-purpose use. With it, you feel confident on the hunt when protecting a business, at competitions, or at a tactical event.

23. Remington 700.

The Remington 700 is what is on the wish list for any shooter. It is produced by one of the oldest arms companies in America - Remington Arms. From a technical point of view, this is a bolt-action bolt action rifle. Since 1962 more than 700 variants have been produced, aimed at security officials, athletes, snipers, and hunters. Cartridges with calibers from .17 Rem to .338 Lapua Magnum allow you to hunt any kind of game except bear. The Americans liked the Remington 700 so much that they customized their samples.

24. 1911 Moonshot.

And finally, we want to bring to your attention the most expensive pistol in the world. On the 50th anniversary of the landing of American astronauts on the moon, Cabot Guns released a collectible firearm, 1911 Moonshot, worth about 250 thousand dollars. The entire body of the pistol is covered with engravings and bas-reliefs on the theme of landing on the moon. Imitation of the lunar surface is made in gray, blue glaze. Small diamonds depict stars, rubies, sapphires, and gold - the Sun, Jupiter, and Saturn. But the most precious stone in this product is an iron piece of the lunar surface, with an age of 4.5 billion years. The front sight and the rear sight are made of it. This is a unique piece, made in a single copy with great skill and love for American values and traditions. Moonshot has become a bridge that connects the past and the present. The traditional model has been read with the help of modern materials and technologies.

The culture of America is closely intertwined with the history of the development of firearms. A unique culture of handling weapons and deep traditions have significantly influenced the population's number of guns. By and large, every citizen ensures their security with the help of firearms. He is interested in the latest weapons industry and replenishes his arsenal when necessary. We will note the growing trend toward more deadly weapons that are compact, light, and inexpensive. Pistol aficionados want the perfect weapon for self-defense, sports, and concealed carry. Gun aficionados dream of excellent penetration, range, and decent accuracy. The American firearms market more than covers those and other requests. American weapons firms boast the most advanced designs and honor traditional weapons.
