The 1972-73 production passed 8,250 when the model was again discontinued. Guy Hubbard, a historian of Windsor, Vermont where Robbins and Lawrence made the Jennings repeater, stated in 1924 that he had been informed by principals of the company that only 1,000 Jennings and Smith Jennings rifles were made between 18 and of this number many were converted to single shots and many more were scrapped for parts.Total production of about 1,600 guns, 600 were transferred to the Volcanic Company for assembly, according to remaining Winchester records.Horace Smith and Daniel Wesson of Norwich, Connecticut, acquired the Jennings patent from Robbins & Lawrence, as well as shop foreman Benjamin Tyler Henry.Smith made several improvements to the Jennings design, and in 1855 Smith and Wesson together with several investors formed a corporation, the Volcanic Repeating Arms Company, to manufacture Smith's modification of the Hunt-Jennings, the Volcanic lever-action pistol and rifle. For the Volcanic rifle, Smith added a primer charge to Hunt's "Rocket Ball" and thus created one of the first fixed metallic cartridges which incorporated bullet, primer and powder in one self-contained unit.
