L.C. Smith – Hunter Arms Field Grade 16 ga 27.5” VG Mfg ca Late 1920s  Guns > Shotguns > L.C. Smith Shotguns
Description: First, as is our custom, we will list the detracting aspects. Beginning with the frame, this shotgun has a brown patina finish, less so with the side plates whose finish has been buffed but whose L.C. Smith insignia is still sharp and clear. Right sideplate has a few surface nicks. Left sideplate screw is only moderately stressed. Bottom of receiver is also about 80 percent brown patina, 20 percent gray. Screw forward of trigger guard is round and slightly flattened, probably not original. Rear of trigger guard has a metal crack on the left side of metal, and its screw is recessed and slightly stressed. Rear lower guard screw is flush with fitting indications. Top of receiver has about 10 percent dings. Lever is well fitted, with about 40 percent light but buffed ding indications at its center. Metal checkering on left of lever is strong. Safety lever is in Very Good condition, gunmetal gray. Barrels are nice, even dark brown patina with strong hints of bluing underneath. Rib edge contact evidence is only moderate. Steel barrels are 27.5 inches long, right barrel with .651 Modified and Left with .630 Full constriction. Evidently there is about a half inch missing. There are no obvious dings in the barrels, although sighting down it one gets a bit of a wavy effect. Bores and chambers are very clean, with only about 20 percent of internal surface showing scouring – or very modest pitting – for about 10 inches forward of the chambers. Words Armor Steel on right barrel top and Hunter Arms Co. Makers, Fulton, NY, on left barrel top are dim but legible. Shotgun has been re-stocked, and wood and checkering are excellent as is their fit. There is some gappiness to the forend fit underneath the barrel on the left side for about 4 inches, and only in the corner on the right side. Length-of-pull is 13 ¾” from the forward trigger. Bore, as we have pointed out, is Very Good if not excellent. Mechanism locks solidly and crisply. On the strength of these positive features; on the expertise involved in the restocking of this shotgun; and on the unique and pleasing feel of an L.C. Smith, we feel that our price is warranted. Own this fine old L.C. for only $1289.95
