No one knows an exact number. Many nations have no registration of privately owned firearms, and governments do not like to publish defense information on how many weapons they have.

In 2007, it was ESTIMATED that there are ABOUT 875 million firearms in the world, of which ABOUT 270 million are in the US. There are about 1,135 companies world wide that make about 8 million firearms a year.

Above information is taken from the report of the Small Arms Survey by the Graduate Institute of International Studies in Geneva, Switzerland.

The term "small arms" denotes firearms fired by one person from the shoulder or hand, such as rifles, pistols and shotguns. It does not include crew served weapons, weapons mounted on boats, aircraft, or vehicles.
