One of the world’s largest manufacturers of quality firearms and firearm safety/security products, Smith & Wesson’s origins can be traced back to 1850, when Horace Smith and D B. Wesson became acquainted and began marketing a lever action repeating pistol with a useful self-contained cartridge. This first venture was not successful, but the company was sold to Winchester. Smith & Wesson then went to work on a second partnership to market the model 1 revolver, designed to fire their rimfire cartridge that contained not only powder, but also a lubricant positioned within the case amid the powder and the ball. The model 1 revolver was the original successfully self-contained cartridge revolver available in the gun marketplace, and it is what led the young company to fame and fortune.
Among the company’s best-known achievements over the years has been the .38 Military & Police revolver. Also known today as the .38 special model 10, it has been in continual production since its development and is used by just about every police agency and military force around the world.
Another Smith & Wesson handgun model, the .44 Magnum revolver, grew in popularity due to Clint Eastwood’s 1971 crime film, Dirty Harry. The .44 Magnum, along with the .357 Magnum, have been some of the most popular lines of revolvers of all time, and launched the era of stainless steel firearms. In 1955, Smith & Wesson introduced model 39, the first American made double action auto-loading pistol.
Today, Smith & Wesson sells a large variety of pistols, revolvers, rifles and more used by law enforcement, militaries and civilians around the world. They also sell many specialty products and accessories including apparel, handcuffs, knives, coffee mugs and watches all bearing the famous company logo.
