Good gun alert — early L.C. Smith 2E…

Pre-1913 L.C. Smiths are some of the nicest double barrel shotguns ever made in America. As the only sidelock ever mass produced in North America, they have some of the elegance of a British gun, and a lot of the “practical” that I like about America firearms.

This L.C. Smith side-by-side is a perfect example. It’s an early No. 2 grade, probably made in 1898. It has Smith’s first style ejectors and a ton of original condition.

Overall, it looks like a nice gun.
