Many have asked this question, never found an answer. DW claims they are made in the U.S.A., not that matters to me where they are made, but the origin of their frames, slides, barrels...is unknown. I wouldn't care if they were made in Brazil, Turkey, U.S.A. ... as long as I knew upfront! I believe all other manufactureres will tell you where their parts come from, why so much secrecy from DW? Makes me wonder!
