U.S. manufactured the most guns ever in 2016

American gun manufacturers made more than 11 million firearms in 2016 — the most ever recorded, federal statistics indicate.

The Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Export Report compiled last month shows Gun Makers distributed 11,497,441 firearms into the commercial market that year, including 4.7 million handguns and 4.2 million rifles.

AMFER releases on a two-year delay and has been tracking firearm manufacturing in the United States for more than 30 years. Manufacturing increased nearly 23 percent over 2015, according to the report, and has nearly quadrupled since 1986 — the first year for data is available.
