Synopsis

This detailed history of the Smith & Wesson firm chronicles one of the most famous and controversial firearms manufacturers. Smith & Wesson was founded in 1852 by Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson. Their dream to develop a firearm capable of firing repeatedly without the annoyance of reloading with loose powder, ball and primer, transformed the firearms industry. The firm has gone on to produce countless pistols and revolvers. This work contains technical evaluations on every firearm produced by Smith & Wesson over the last 150 years. It is illustrated with clear photographs and cutaways drawings showing the mechanisms of the firearms.
