L.C. Smith "O" Grade 16 Gauge - 1899 GUN, 70% CASE 70% CASE COLOR, CONDITION!
L.C. Smith “O” Grade 16 Gauge – 1899 GUN, 70% CASE 70% CASE COLOR, CONDITION!

L.C. Smith “O” Grade 16 Gauge – 1899 GUN, 70% CASE 70% CASE COLOR, CONDITION: 6lbs 14oz, Side by Side, Serial Number 60594.  The L.C. Smith “O” Grade, a “pre-1913” name given to this grade by Hunter Arms prior to 1913 (too obvious?) was a step above the Field Grade that came out in 1913 from Hunter Arms in that it had a bit nicer wood and checkering, a black ebony inlay in the forend tip, and a set of nice damascus steel barrels.  This gun, sn60594 built in 1899, is in remarkable condition for its 118 years of age, with lots of case color, perfect screws, perfect wood to metal fit, nicely figured European walnut (book says English walnut, looks like French to me), factory original checkering is excellent, no cracks anywhere, full length butt stock to the factory butt plate, 30″ damascus barrels that still retain 98% of their original black and white pattern, and tight as new mechanically.  With the long barrels and 1/2 round pistol grip, this is a great sporting clays or upland gun, and weighing 6lbs. 14oz. is not too heavy to carry all day.  They only made about 3100 of these guns in 16ga., likely less than 2500 or so left on the planet, so it is not a common gun, especially with this much factory condition remaining.  Price: $1,995
