Suddenly I've been thrust into the world of LC Smith shotguns.I have little experience with these guns and now I've come across a gem. I'm hoping for a little direction where to go with it. This gun, ser#60643 is in fantastic working condition. Tight and other than patina and dust and a little wear the metal is all present and in great condition. Where should I go with this gun? (What would you do). The gun was a shooter
The wear is consistent in the wood and metal. The stock could use repair but I feel it could still withstand use. I have everything for a complete restoration except making a new stock. I can fit and finish but not manufacture one. I can color, blue etc. everything but nitride. Should I repair the stock and clean the gun leaving all of the character in it, or go full blown restore? Never saw one before and I kind of like it. I'm not a collector. I use the few guns I have but this gun is sticking to me.
