    The season is coming up so I would like to offer up a nice shotgun to a new home. I do realize this is not the place to post for sale but i figured what the hell. I have a 1940 Lc Smith field grade 12ga, with 30" barrels choked mod and full. It swings very well and is bad news for pheasants. Im looking to get $900 but am open for offers. feel free to Pm me for pics or questions.

    What? Did you find a 32" extra full and turkey for those 60 yard flushes?

    Ahh, Elsies; in my opinion, only Parkers are better guns. Pity it's a 12; I'd really like to have a 20. Her Ladyship owns one, inlaid with ducks on one side of the sidelock plate, and pheasants on the other. Field grades are the entry model for L.C. Smith, but don't anyone think they're cheap guns! Here's what Doug Turnbull can do with one

    Hers seems to be developing a problem with the recoil-actuated second barrel, and if I need it reworked, Turnbull will get the nod. They're worth the $$! it's the color case-hardening you're after. Doug spent a huge amount of time and research, even to the extent of learning from those few folks still alive who worked at the factory doing the hardening. As a result, he's the best in the world!

    Your right Alex they are great shotguns. 20's are going to cost a bit more. It won't break my heart not to sell it.
