The Smith & Wesson Model 317 Kit Gun is a perfect choice for sportsmen spending the day in the field. Much like a compass or a knife, a kit gun is a tool of necessity for anyone camping, on a hike, or out fishing.
As most shooters are aware, Smith & Wesson Firearms has undergone major changes in the last few months. The changes reflect a new and improved attitude in the leadership of this corporation, due to the recent change in ownership. S&W is now, once again, American owned. Smith & Wesson has a new leader, America has a new leader, and things are looking brighter for both.
I mean, imagine for a moment this is 1910. In the past five years, you would have witnessed the introduction of the Browning Auto-5, the first successful semiauto shotgun; the Remington Model 8, the first successful semiauto high-power rifle; and the Standard Model G, the first gas-operated autoloading rifle. What’s more, the Colt Model 1911 pistol and Winchester Model 12 pump shotgun would be just around the corner.
