Ran across a 20 gauge smith the other day, it looked real danity and trim and felt real light and when it threw it to my shoulder it was spot on i did not need another 20 gauge smith but i just liked if and bought it and brought it home, this is what i found SR# 10774R 26 INCH BARRELS MOD AND IMP MOD, DROP AT COMB 1 3/8 DROP AT HEEL 2 3/8 14 INCH PULL TO BUTT PLATE, ON MY POSTAGE SCALES IT WEIGHTS 5 LB 7 OZ, ABOUT 1 LB LIGHTER THAN MY OTHER 20 GAGE SMITHS OF LATER SR# DATES, MY QUESTION IS HOW DID SMITH TAKE ABOUT A 1LB WEIGHT OFF THIS 20 GAGE, AND COULD YOU SPECIAL ORDER A ULTRA LIGHT 20 WITH THOSE STOCK DIM. BACK ABOUT 1912 OR 13.
