Our Founders

It was 1852 when Horace Smith and Daniel Baird Wesson made their dream of creating a repeating firearm, using a self-contained cartridge a reality and made history. Over the next 169 years Smith & Wesson perfected the American sidearm to become one of the world’s most respected brand of firearms.
