LC Smith Hunter Arms Crown Grade 12 Ga 26” IC & MOD, Ejectors, Single Trigger, Wadsworth - Release Made 1924

This is one of the L.C. Smith Crown Grade shotguns that were made to order for the knowledgeable and well-heeled shotgunners of days gone by. One of only 639 produced in 12 gauge, it was made in 1924 and features 26” barrels with 2-3/4” chambers, IC & MOD chokes (.718” & .698”), matted rib with gold inlay, brass bead, automatic ejectors, single selective trigger, ebony forend tip, Wadsworth forend release, a very pleasing mix of geometric, scroll, floral and dog scene engraving, finely checkered top grade walnut stocks and classic Red Head recoil pad. LOP is 14-1/6” and the drops are 2-3/4” & 1-3/4”. The serial number is FWE68549 and all serial numbers match. The gun has had a top-flight restoration and retains about 98% blue with no evidence of old pitting but a small area just back from the outboard side of the left muzzle that had some pre-restoration scratches under the blue (and a few small dings here and there as well) and small patch of oxidation on the left tube as well. If you carefully shadow it, the left tube shows a few very shallow dents which only are just barely visible in the bore. The bores are smooth and shiny and the stocks are sound with one small patch of slight scratches on the left butt and a few scattered light handling marks. The frame retains faint hints of case color in protected areas and the lettering on the barrels is somewhat faint in places. There’s a small pre-restoration chip at the lower right where the butt meets the frame and there’s hairline cracks on either side at the ends of the side plates (these appear stable and look to be nothing more than slight grain checks). The recoil pad is supple. It is 100% on-face and lock-up is vault like with zero lateral or vertical play (tested with the forearm removed), the ejectors work smartly, the trigger selects and the top lever comes to rest just slightly to the left of center. With the balance right at the hinge and a weight of 6 pounds, 12 ounces, it’s a beautifully handling gun that has been beautifully restored.
