  • There are some pre-war european origin companies: Heckler und Koch, Glock, Rheinmetal and Mauser so there is another piece of info about European Commonwealth. Gauss rifle and pistol were of German design also.
  • Sig Sauer, headquartered in Exeter, New Hampshire, has just european roots (the largest member of a worldwide business group of firearms manufacturers that includes J.P. Sauer & Sohn and Blaser, Gmbh. in Germany and Swiss Arms AG in Switzerland; SIG is for Swiss Industrial Company).
  • In the 1990s Mauser is bought by Rheinmetall Berlin AG, completed in 1996. (Rheinmetall Berlin AG renamed Rheinmetall AG that same year). In 1999 the firearms maker is split off from the Rheinmetall. The Mauser name is divided between the traditional civilian rifle company and a division of Rheinmetall (however Mauser C 96 is unique weapon, so Mauser company don't have to be present in the Fallout world).
  • Desert Eagle was manufactured primarily in Israel by IMI (Israel Military Industries) for Magnum Research, Inc. Magnum Research, based in the USA, developed and patented the original Desert Eagle design and this design was further refined by IMI. Manufacturing was moved to Saco Defense in the state of Maine from 1995 to 2000, but shifted back to Israel when Saco was acquired by General Dynamics.
  • MEC Gauss MiniGun was developed by Chinese (present in Fallout Tactics world).
  • During the late 1980s and 1990s, many countries decommissioned the FAL from their armouries and sold them en masse to United States importers as surplus. The rifles were imported to the United States as fully-automatic machine guns. Once in the U.S., the FAL's were "de-militarized" (upper receiver destroyed) to eliminate the rifles' character as an automatic rifle. Thousands of the resulting "parts kits" were sold at generally low prices ($90 - $250) to hobbyists. The hobbyists rebuilt the parts kits to legal and functional semi-automatic rifles on new semi-automatic upper receivers. FAL rifles are still commercially available from a few domestic firms in semi-auto configuration: Entreprise Arms, DSA, and Century Arms until recently.

"SIG SAUER (SIGARMS until October 2007) is the US representative of Swiss/German manufacturing firm Swiss Arms AG, which was split off of Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft (SIG) in 2000. SIGARMS was established in 1985 to import and distribute SIG firearms into the United States although it now also has some manufacturing capabilities. As of 2000 it has been a separate entity. The original SIG Arms AG parent company was simultaneously renamed as Swiss Arms AG." Shaur M. S. Grizlin 20:54, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

So may be Sig Sauer should be placed together with US weapons manufacturers (it seems it is US headquartered company, despite of its european affiliations). --dotz 00:43, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Be careful with Colt and Winchester - isn't it weapon systems (like CAWS; it is said that Polish VIS pistol used some Colt features also)?--dotz 08:40, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Google Colt and Winchester. Shaur M. S. Grizlin 21:33, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

Sig Sauer is a Swiss/German company. Up until 2008 the US importer of Sig Sauer firearms was know as Sigarms. In May of 2008 the importer was given permission to use the name Sig Sauer in the US. Still Sig Sauer is a Swiss/German company.

Super-Duper Mart[edit source]

I honestly do not think that the Super-Duper Mart was modeled after Wal-Mart. Remember, this is a game where the world is stuck in a 1950's era timeframe. The actual equivalent would be Longs Drug or Safeway. Safeway would be a more appropriate example as it has been in business in the 1930's. Wal-mart is a discount retailer. I am planning on changing it but in want other peoples thoughts as well. --Kingclyde 07:54, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Super-Duper Mart seems more of a reference to supermarkets in general, which were popping up all over the suburban landscape in the period after WW2. I don't think it really references any one chain in particular. Ishotamaninnewreno 08:11, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
Why is there a "real-world equivalent" column anyway? I'll take it out. The fact that there is, for example, a real-world Heckler and Coch can be noted on the particular article page.--Gothemasticator 08:46, February 7, 2010 (UTC)
True. Thanks for doing that.--Kingclyde 08:47, February 7, 2010 (UTC)

Bethesda[edit source]

Why is Bethesda on this list? I have a feeling it is because of Bethesda Offices West and Bethesda Offices East but that is just referring to Bethesda the location. JonCollins 01:47, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Category[edit source]

This should probably be reconciled with "Category:Pre-war companies". All companies in that category should be added here and vice versa. JonCollins 10:08, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Smith & Wesson[edit source]

Is S&W a canon pre-war company or not? If so we need to do a page on it, if not why is it mentioned under several .44 Magnum articles? --70.27.190.148 20:15, March 17, 2011 (UTC)

Brands vs. Corporations[edit source]

I'll be cleaning up the article and dividing the list into companies and brands. Eg. LaserGrafter is a brand, not a company, as is Corvega and so on. We've had this problem for far too long. Tagaziel (talk) 19:55, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Planes Air[edit source]

Where is "Planes Air" from?--Ant2242 (talk) 03:30, 2 October 2016 (UTC)
