Lucius W. Pond began making his Belt Revolvers around 1861, at a time when America was fighting itself in the American Civil War.

In 1862, however, Smith & Wesson made a challenge to the Belt Revolver's production. Smith & Wesson's challenge centred on a patent issued for their 'Rollin White' patent, issued in 1855. The court ruled in favour of Smith & Wesson, however Pond (alongside Bacon, Moore and Warner whom were also found infringing that patent) was able to continue producing the Belt Revolver after meeting Royalty agreements with S&W. Ultimately production of Pond’s Belt Revolvers ended in 1870, the final few thousand of which were stamped, "Manuf'd for Smith & Wesson Pat'd April 5, 1855".
