I am trying to obtain a clear understanding of the L.C. Smith Long Rang/Wild Fowl production for an article that I am working on. Long Range production started in about 1924. The records show that the first Wild Fowl model was Serial Number 191104 finished on June 26, 1940. From that date on, WF or Wild Fowl appears in the records, but LR or Long Range is no longer recorded.
I would like to determine if there is an overlap in WF and LR production. Do any of you have a shotgun marked Long Range on the barrel lug with a serial number above 191104?
I would really appreciate your help in answering this question.
