Smith gun.  We did restore the butt stock as the finish was not on par with the rest of the gun.  All parts are original to the gun.  The screws are perfect, the bores are perfect, the engraving is crisp and clear, the triggers break like glass, the barrels are tight on the breech face and hinge pin like a new gun, the case color is bold and strong and everywhere, the wood to metal fit is superb…and those loooong 32″ barrels. Price: $22,950
