I am 75 years old and received this L C Smith from my
father who received it from his father. According to
the L C Smith owners website, the serial number 79100
was produced in 1925. The last time it was shot was in
1953 when I was 16 years old. It had a lot of kick for
a young shooter, therefore, I put it back in the gun
cabinet where it has remained since 1953, except for
occasional cleaning and oiling.
The letters on the left barrel are: HUNTER ARMS CO.
FULTON, N.Y. The right barrel has ROYAL STEEL. The three serial numbers (79100) on the bottom of the barrel
inside the receiver, and inside the forearm. I guess that makes it numbers matching?? This L C Smith has
dual triggers, extractor, 30 inch barrels, minor to
average pitting in the lower parts of barrels, otherwise
bright and shiney. Chamber is 2 3/4 with modified and
full choke. All parts are original as far as I know, and
the stock and forearm are in excellant shape. The bluing
on the barrels in my estimate are 95% good. The action
on this shotgun is very tight, open or closed, and makes
a strong CLICK when shuting.
Must be returned in the same
condition and with all the
original parts as shiped.
