The Smith-Winchester company was basically a hardware store that sold many things, including firearms and ammunition from the (unrelated) Winchester Repeating Arms company.  The original name was changed to Smith-Winchester in 1905 so catalogue #19 may, or may not be from 1924ish.

Here is a link to more information about Smith-Winchester.

If Winchester had been as maniacally aggressive as McDonalds (left-wing to the core–check it out), they’d have sued this company, or any other with the same name, into bankruptcy for the coincidence of having the same name.

Winchester would have lost the case if they had sued… the co-owner of the Smith-Winchester business was man named Samuel Winchester.
