Star Firearms: Chart of all Firearms by Caliber
 

Star Firearms Data Summary

This is very, very in progress, as is much of the site since it's a hobby. I am replacing a known-unreliable table with this one I am deriving from the best sources I have already published. Empty data is unknown or too unreliable to put in the table. Click column headers to sort if you want to mess with the data display to find things.

There is much unknown still, or confusing, or conflicting. Visit the series page for more details and discussion.

Note: Some series names are of my own devising, and are not factory information — Some may draw distinctions or similarities that are not true, and these may well change in the future.
