The Volcanic Repeater is a very important gun in history. At the time, most other firearms were muzzle loaded. A joint venture led to the creation. The Jennings Rifle Company had Horace Smith and Daniel Wesson working for them, and they teamed up on this pistol. This led to the partnership of Smith and Wesson a year later in 1854. Oliver Winchester, one of the company's investors, effectively dissolved the Volcanic Repeating Arms company in 1857, later relaunching the company as the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. The Volcanic Repeater mechanism was heavily influential on Winchester's classic lever-action rifles, including the Henry rifle (1860) and the Winchester Model 1866 "Yellow Boy". Two of the world's largest gun companies are here because of this collaboration.

The Volcanic lever action magazine firearm was patented February 14, 1854 by Smith and Wesson and manufactured by Smith & Wesson, The Volcanic Repeating Arms, and New Haven Arms Companies until 1860.
