Smith and Wesson

Smith & Wesson has been a storied American gunmaker since 1852 when Horace Smith and D.B. Wesson partnered in a quest to manufacture a firearm that could fire a fully self-contained cartridge.

Since that time the company has produced a number of firearms that are recognized worldwide. The Volcanic, introduced in 1854 was the first repeating American firearm that met the requirement of firing a fully self-contained cartridge.

Then in 1877 they introduced The .38 Safety Hammerless. The first double-action concealed-hammer revolver.

The introduction of the .38 S&W Special may be the most well know of them all. This model went on to become a standard for police and military and resulted in over 6 million units bring produced since the creation in 1899.
