    "Marcas Registradas"

    Has anyone wondered why Smith and Wesson's have "Marcas Registradas" on the side of their hand guns? And what and why that is?
    It is Latin not Spanish and it translates to registered trademark. "Marcas Registradas" markings were introduced during the 1930's in response to foreign copies and counterfits that were flooding Mexico, Central America and South America. Smith & Wesson changed their simple "Made In USA" rollmark to a more complex four line bilingual version.

    Interesting facts. So there you have it.

    Sounds classier I guess.
    When I was young my Mother told me I could be anyone I wanted to be. Turns out the police call that 'Identity Theft.'

    About 1948. Why? Who knows. Worse yet it (the 4 line) was put on pre-1921 guns returned for service, even triplelocks!
