Unfortunately, many US companies don’t have much native private investment so are purchased or invested in by foreign companies.

Belgian FN (formerly Fabrique Nationale) manufactures the squad automatic weapon (SAW) and M-16 in the US presently. FN has a long history with Browning since they were connected through the manufacture of the Superposed over/under shotguns as well as other Browning designs.
