I received LC Smith receivers #96240 and FW 101876 today. Both appear to be in 12 gauge matching the engineering drawings available on the forum pretty closely. #96240 is a roller joint 00 grade with 3 position safety mechanical unit in place. Smooth with traces of case color in protected places, some spotty light pitting here and there and some minor surface rust. The only serious flaw has been some rough treatment directly in front of the trigger plate to the lug recess in the receiver bottom. Here where the bottom metal is very thin this area has been "peened?" with tiny cracks forming in corners. Receiver FW101876 is marked field. Very rusty with top snap/roller lock assembly rusted in might be in a forged unfinished condition and never assembled into a gun.
