Smith Wesson’s 1st Auto Ejecting Revolver- The Smith Wesson Model 1 ½ in .32 centerfire was caught in the middle of SW's many models and variations. So what set it apart from the others? It was SW’s first .32 caliber revolver equipped with automatic ejection. This particular gun has a 3 ½ inch barrel and has an early SW logo variation on the grips with block letters. Later in the production run, the grips had script letters. NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, VA.
Pond Single Action Belt Revolver- This .32 ca rimfire gun made between 1861-70. Due to the similarity with Smith Wesson revolvers, inventor Lucius W. Pond was sued for patent infringement forced to cease production. After the order came, Pond still had an inventory of nearly 4,000 revolvers remaining in his possession. Instead of forcing him to destroy the guns, he was allowed to continue selling them under one condition - they were to be marked "MANUF'D FOR SMITH WESSON" prior to sale.
