I'm pretty sure Sig makes their gun here as do others.Noooo! I've been holding off on buying a Sig P365 in the hopes that walther would come out with a similar offering. If other manufacturers can make small guns then walther really doesn't have much excuse.
Others will know this better than I but I think in 1968 a points system was put in place to regulate what small guns could be imported into the USA.
So it sounds like Walther is looking to expand their manufacturing here.
