SPRINGFIELD, Mass.--( We’ve faced tyranny on the battlefield together; helped tame the Wild West; kept the streets safe; and shared in successful days afield and fun trips to the range.

America celebrates its 237th birthday this week and its relationship with Smith & Wesson remains a close and longstanding one, as evidenced by a recent survey that listed the iconic firearms manufacturer as one of the country’s most patriotic brands.

The survey of 4,500 consumers was conducted by a New York-based brand research firm, Brand Keys and published in the July 3 issue of USA Today. The survey results indicated that the Smith & Wesson brand is one of the 25 most patriotic brands in America, a result the company credits to its 161-year commitment to consumers, law enforcement and military customers, as well as its tireless support of Second Amendment freedoms.

Founded in 1852, Smith & Wesson is the third-oldest brand on the list and the only firearms manufacturer to be named. The list also included a host of other industry-leading brands and top market performers across multiple product categories.

““We have always considered our company to be an American Classic,” said James Debney, Smith & Wesson President and CEO. “To be included on this list of most patriotic companies is a great honor. Our strong relationships with our customers and our commitment to serving our country will always remain our top priorities.””

      This is quite a turnaround for a company that seemingly had betrayed its customer base in its infamous deal with the Clinton Administration, a deal that clearly jeopardized the continued existence of the company, forcing its sale for dimes-on-the-Dollar back to U.S. owners.

      Well Done, to the current Management of Smith & Wesson Holdings, for their critical attention to restoring the trust and support of their customers.

      They also make excellent quality firearms. Moving S&W away from Springfield will punish Western Massachusetts for The Boston area.

      They would be higher on the list if they moved.

      Moving S&W out of Ma, benefits who?
      I’m a proud ma, resident with my m&p c40 on my side in public right now, and nobody seems to hate me.
      Massachusetts is not a perfect state. Patriotic absolutely! History kinda proves that fairly easily. A conceal/carry and stand your ground state. How much more do you really need
      You boys down south and out west don’t have it any better. Gun wise.
      Seeing as they’re the only gun manufacturer on the list and have had a hundred years to move somewhere else, I’d say they seem happy right here, and so are we.
