Re: Single Barrel - LC Smith during the period Marlin owned them
It has been my experience that the factory lacked consistency in marking SBT serial numbers. Many higher grade guns such as Crowns and Monograms have a "C" or "M" after the s/n with an "S" at the beginning. I would interpret this as "S" stands for single barrel at the beginning of the s/n However, I don't recall ever seeing a Specialty with a s/n that reads SXXXXS; they are usually marked SXXXX and most of the time no letter at all.
