Smith & Wesson Firearm Reviews

What are the best S&W firearms you can buy?

If there’s a more well-known name in American firearms than Smith & Wesson we couldn’t tell you who it is.

Originally founded in 1856 in Springfield, Massachusetts by Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson as the “Smith & Wesson Revolver Company” – the current Smith & Wesson wasn’t the first – the duo had previously started the “Smith & Wesson Company” which was sold to Winchester  – and eventually became the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. That’s right  – the original Smith & Wesson is now Winchester. Small world!

While Smith & Wesson’s history is rooted in revolvers that shaped the American west, these days the company makes a variety of firearms – from revolvers and pistols to long guns and even their own version of the famous AR-15 platform.
