L.C. Smith, snS42004C, 1921, 12 Gauge, 8lbs. 2oz., Choke F

The Hunter Arms Co. was the maker of the famed L.C. Smith double barreled shotguns from the late 1800’s until the sale of the company to Marlin Arms Company in 1947.  The L.C. Smith guns were built in numbers far greater than their competitors, and their guns have been sought after and coveted by knowledgeable shotgunners for nearly 130 years.  In the early 1900’s the shotgun sport of Trap shooting was growing rapidly, and most of high society paid attention to the tournaments as they became grand social events.  By the late teens the sport was very popular and American gunmakers began making trap specific guns for shooting clay target trap with long single barrels and designed to win from the 16-yard line to the 27-yard line in handicap events.  Single barrel trap guns were built with great care, as the maker’s name and reputation were made by the notable wins in these highly competitive, high money trap shoots.  The guns were made to pattern and shoot better than most trap guns we have today and were hand tuned before leaving the factory.  This fine L.C. Smith Crown Grade Single Barrel Trap is an excellent example of L.C. Smiths finely engraved offering that was available in their catalogs from 1917 until the close of business in 1950.  This gun, snS42004C made in 1921, is in 99% beautiful condition as professionally restored to historically correct finishes.  The metal and wood all rate 99%, screws and wood to metal fit are superb, and the wood has a hand-rubbed oil finish that makes the highly figured factory wood stand out.   The barrel is tight as new on the hinge pin and breech face, the bore is excellent mirror shiny, and the ventilated rib is tight and sound.  The gun left the factory with a recoil pad and along the way it was replaced with a brown Old English pad.  IF YOU PREFER A VINTAGE PAD (REPRODUCTION THAT IS AVAILABLE) LET US KNOW AND WE CAN CHANGE THE PAD BEFORE SHIPPING THE GUN.  The stock dimensions are modern and very shootable.  See the stats below.  Everything about this gun is as new and it is a stunning gun for being almost 103 years old.  THIS IS A VFI CERTIFIED GUN WITH A 90 DAY MECHANICAL WARRANTY.  IT HAS BEEN STRIPPED TO ITS SMALLEST PART, CLEANED IN THE ULTRASONIC CLEANER, EACH PART INSPECTED FOR INTEGRITY AND FUNCTION, PROPERLY LUBRICATED AND REASSEMBLED.  This is a $375 service in our shop.  She is ready for heavy use or casual use without need of repair.  They only made a total of 86 Crown Grade SBT’s. To find a pristine, investment quality example is a treasure, and this gun will continue to go up in value as you enjoy its use.  Thanks for looking!
