L.C. Smith Ideal 12 Ga Shotgun Made 1914 28 Mod & Mod With Beavertail Forend

This is handsome 12 gauge Ideal grade was made in 1914 and features 28 barrels with 2-3/4 chambers, Mod & Mod chokes (0.700 & 0.691 measured with a Mitutoyo Absolute Digimatic caliper), concave matted rib with mid and front beads, oak leaf pattern engraving, case colored frame and side plates, automatic safety and nicely figured checkered walnut stocks with grip cap, beavertail forend and classic Jostram ventilated recoil pad. Drops are 1-7/16 & 2-5/8 while LOP is 13 & 14 and weight comes in at just under 6 pounds, 15 ounces. The barrels retain bout 68% original blue with generalized thinning, what looks like a professionally repaired dent in the right tube about 6-1/2 from the muzzle and two smaller repaired ones on the opposite tube while the bores are perfect mirrors with a few scattered pits in front the chamber in right tube and only slight evidence of the dent repairs. Both beads require replacement. The guard retains about 85% blue while the frame and side plates are mostly silver-gray patina with some scattered brown patina and perhaps 5% case color hiding in protected areas. The stocks are completely sound with finish loss here and there and thinly scattered light handling marks. Lock-up is 100% on-face with zero lateral or vertical movement (tested with forend removed) with the lever coming to rest in the center. A fine old 12 gauge with the not-often-found beavertail forend. If you have questions please email us at tangoyankee_llc@yahoo.com This will be listed on Gun Broker the evening of July 24th.
