In the early sixties, my Dad and I answered an ad in the Washington Post offering L.C. Smith Premier Skeet guns for sale. We visited a gentleman in Wheaton, Maryland who had several 12 gauge Premier Skeet Grade 12 gauges, all brand new, for $225.00 each. The guns were poorly fitted, had obviously been put together from unrelated parts without hand fitting. My Dad and I decided not to take advantage and never ran into the seller again. I have always had the idea that the guns were put together at N.F. Strebe gun works in District Heights, Maryland. Mr. Strebe bought surplus parts from many gun companies and made guns from some. He was quite a Fox collector and bought the remaining Fox parts from Savage Arms.
