Yes, Rifles from S&W: Models A, B, C, D, and E (1968)

For years, hunters who admire Smith & Wesson sidearms have sworn: "If they ever come out with a rifle, I'll be the first man at the store"

Well stop swearing.

Yes, Rifles from Smith & Wesson - 1968 Print Advertisement

Now Smith & Wesson brings you a family of rifles in 4 great calibers, with the game-wise features you look for in a gun.

They're light enough to tote up mountains … handy enough to swing on a bouncing buck in the brush.

Their safety is fumble-proof … low, to clear any scope … so silent it wouldn't spook game a foot away.

Use the sturdy, open rear sight and silver bead up front. Or add most any scope mount or receiver sight; the holes are already drilled and tapped.

A clean trigger lets off when you want it to; a fast striker helps make sure you're still on target when the gun fires. An extremely strong, modern action and hammer-forged barrel … carefully inletted … deliver the goods in accuracy.

You also get a smooth-feeding, 5-shot magazine with hinged floor plate, a real bragging stock with 16-line checkering.

Plus the kind of workmanship you've found in Smith & Wesson handguns.

Model A: Deluxe grade. About 7 lbs. 233/4" barrel. Monte Carlo buttstock.

Model B: Lightweight. About 6 lbs. 10 ozs. 233/4" barrel. Monte Carlo buttstock.
