LC Smith Long Range Trap Grade 12 gauge
- Very Good
- 12 ga
This is a very rare and unique shotgun. LC Smith made very high quality shotguns and this is a Trap Grade making it better than most Elsies. It is also the Long Range model which gives it 32" barrels, both full choked and 3" chambers which was incredibly rare when this gun was made in 1926. Aside from beautiful machining it also features the Hunter One Trigger upgrade and automatic ejectors.
While not original, it has been tastefully and skillfully restored . According to my research it is one of only 59 LC Smith Long Range Trap Grade shotguns ever made.
I have shot skeet with it twice. It works perfectly and swings beautifully. With appropriate non-toxic loads it could still be a remarkable waterfowl gun.
I'm looking to get $1850 for it before I try to sell it in the U.S market where I believe it is worth $2000 -$2500.
