Finding out who are the biggest gun manufacturers in the world is not any easy task. This kind of companies usually keep their financial and production data as a secret, and this is understandable. Nevertheless, browsing the Internet for hours, we have managed to find one article that has conducted the most thorough research, providing a list of 10 biggest gun producers in the world. Their list is based on the number of guns made for the US market in 2014, and since they have as well included the estimates of the global revenue in 2014 for those companies, we decided to take this factor into account as well and create a slightly different ranking.  We combine those two factors and out of 10 companies we have listed 6 largest gun manufacturers in the world. Most of the gun brands you’ll see here, come as no surprise, as we have all heard of them, at least from James Bond, and Dirty Harry movies. Without further ado, we start our list with the 6th biggest gun producer, according to data we could find!
