The figures reported in the ATFs report above also include this proviso...

* FOR PURPOSES OF THIS REPORT ONLY, "PRODUCTION" IS DEFINED AS:
FIREARMS, INCLUDING SEPARATE FRAMES OR RECEIVERS, ACTIONS OR
BARRELED ACTIONS, MANUFACTURED AND DISPOSED OF IN COMMERCE
DURING THE CALENDAR YEAR.
Which means they count both completed firearms and separate frames or receivers as those are what are serial numbered. They count them as being produced in that year though they may not be ready to ship.

So when they count 114,132 semiauto pistols being produced by Taurus in Miami for example, it means that many complete pistols and frames were produced that year.
