Is this a genuine L.C. Smith No. 3 Pigeon Gun? Maybe….

Here’s an interesting L.C. Smith that just popped up on the market. It sure looks like an old pigeon/trap gun to me, and I bet it’s a rare gun.

Smith made just 3,042 No 3s side by sides, and 2,432 of these guns had ejectors. I sure just a handful of those also had a straight-grip stock, single trigger, and a missing safety.

Here’s the rest of the info on it from the seller:
