This LC Smith Specialty Grade is such a gorgeous piece of art!! This classic shotgun comes with a rare 2 barrel set of 28" and 26" barrels with matching serial numbers. This is a perfectly balanced gun. The handling is very dynamic!! The wood has the original finish and has wonderfully shaped grain with what is either an ebony or buffalo horn inlay on the forend tip. The metalwork is masterfully done. The barrels are unblemished with bright, shiny bores and look to have ivory beads. The screws are flawless. The engraving is artfully done with quail (left side), duck (right side) and vine & leaf border. The barrels lock up tight on the receiver and are on face. The top lever is right of center. The barrels both ring true indicating solid rib attachment. Manufacturing records indicate this gun to be made in 1920. This gun has a Hunter One trigger and a Featherweight frame. I fired many rounds through this gun and it worked flawlessly. Both barrels have 2 3/4" chambers and there is 1 forend. The stock has the original hard butt plate, LOP is 14" to the single trigger in the middle position which equates to a 14 3/8" LOP to a front trigger. Drop @ comb is 1 1/2", drop @ heel is 2 3/8" and has a Prince of Wales pistol grip. The barrels are both fitted with ejectors and factory tapered chokes.
