HERE ***** L.C. SMITH SPECIALITY GRADE 12 GAUGE HAMMERLESS SxS SPORTING GUN SN 134296. Letter from L.C. Sith Collectors Association states: "The Hunter Arms Company manufacturing records for Serial Number 134296 are contained in the Shipping Records and show that it is a 12 gauge Speciality Grade that was originall shipped with 32 inch barrels (now 26-3/4 inch). It was started on October 16, 1930, proofed on July 10, 1931, and patterned on July 16. It was finished on August 12, 1931. This was the time of the Great Depression, and 134296 remained in the Hunter Arms inventory until it was shipped on December 9, 1937 to the R.S. Elliot Arms Company, Kansas City, MO. to complete order number 41002. The letters REOBV in the ledger indicate that it is a regular weight shotgun with ejectors, a Hunter One Trigger, beavertail forend, and a ventilated rib. The 26-inch barrels were likely fitted by the Hunter Arms Company to Serial Number 134296 at a later date. (see more in letter) All contained in it's own canvas & leather trimmed trunk case!
Condition: Excellant overall.
