Smith & Wesson has a "modern facility" in Springfield, Massachusetts. They don't call it an "arms factory".

"Great traditions tend to be deeply rooted. The American tradition of owning and using firearms is an excellent example. For 135 years, Smith & Wesson has been part of that tradition, making fine, innovative, functional handguns to satisfy the country's -- and the world's -- evolving needs."

Emphasis on safety and "commitment" to the "sport".

Blow up of a Semiauto. "The first thing you liked about them was the sleek styling and clean contemporary lines. A closer look showed you the high ammo capacity, easy reloading, and the excitement of rapid fire."

Half the shooting competitors at the 1987 Masters International used the Model 41: Carbon steel 7 inch barrel pistol with checkered walnut handle with modified thumb rest, concealed hammer, 22 long rifle caliber with 365" grooved trigger and adjustable trigger stop and rear sight.

One out of every two double-action revolvers purchased in the United States is a Smith & Wesson. 29 revolver models to choose from. Blow up of 357 magnum. Choices of 32 and 38 caliber revolvers. Nice detail with the shrouded hammers that won't "catch on purse or pocket lining".

A black finish .38 Bodyguard Airweight 2" barrel $368.
