I picked up a 20-bore LC the other day, ser.#11443R, Field grade, 28 in.barrels, 1914 manufacture, I believe. This Elsie came to me with a push-button forearm release, it being at the front of the forearm, like you would expect to see on many English doubles. It also uses the normal J-spring such as a standard snap-off forearm uses. It is plainly not something that was added on---it is the original forearm. Were these at all common to L. C. Smiths, or is rather rare? I haven't seen many Smiths with this type forearm release---Anybody familiar with this type forearm?
