Default Smith and Wesson

Ok, I have a friend who said he bought a Smith and Wesson Muzzleloader. I think he is full of crap. So my question is this does Smith and Wesson make a muzzleloader or is my friend a lying peice of dog crap. Thanks.

To the best of my knowledge, Smith & Wesson (the famous handgun company) is not making any muzzleloaders. I cannot not recall them making any muzzleloaders in the past 20-25 years either. I cannot state with any degree of certinaty that they have not made a muzzleloader at some point in their past. After all when S&W was first establisted, back in the 1850's, muzzleloaders rifles still the most produced firearms of that era.

I'm with 1 shot. I have seen or ever heard of a S&W muzzleloader.I think your friend is pulling you're leg. Savage Remington and Ruger make inlines. Maybe he's getting names mixed up.?????

Interesting link, I expected to see Robert E Lee's autographed AK-47 there too! Of course, it would be "absolutely authentic", just like all his other stuff!

S&W didn't make muzzleloaders in the early days. Why would they? The S&W partnership was formed for the express purpose of producing cartridge revolvers. Why would they take a step back to an earlier technology?
