About the Manufacturer:
Established as a trading company in 1905 and known as Squires Bingham Co. at the time, the company found a market in importing and retailing motorcycles and sporting goods - including firearms and ammunition. In 1952 the President of the Philippines granted the company permission to manufacture its own line firearms and ammunition locally, as it was in line with his government's thrust towards industrialization. Known as Armscor today, the company touts that it is the largest arms and ammunition manufacturer in SouthEast Asia.
About the Cartridge:
Developed by Smith & Wesson and introduced along with its Military & Police Model revolver in 1902, this was originally a military cartridge intended to replace the unsatisfactory .38 Long Colt then in use by the Army. Colt brought out its own version of the .38 Special in 1909, which differs from the original only in bullet shape, being a flat-point style. The .38 Special is considered one of the best-balanced, all-round handgun cartridges ever designed. It is also one of the most accurate and very widely used for match shooting.
