Leaders of the Smith & Wesson had to faced with their financial difficulties, however they were forced to sell their company to a shirt producer by the name of Oliver Winchester. In 1866, using the original lever action design created by the Smith & Wesson, Winchester’s company emerged as the famous Winchester Repeating Arms Co. The Smith & Wesson formed their second partnership in 1856 to manufacture a small revolver which was designed to fire the Rimfire cartridge they patented in 1854.

Actually, the two most important customers for the new revolver were the United States Cavalry, that purchased 1,000 units for usage on the Western Frontier and the Russian Imperial Government.
