Re: Dog Head “Grip” cap for L.C. Smith
I haven't seen all the surviving Smith guns still in circulation, but have likely seen more than my share; and those examples would be from all production periods to include early examples that might be more inclined to have odd grip caps. And for whatever my opinion is worth, I've never seen an example of the grip cap depicted. All two screw grip caps I've seen are checkered in the area where this example features a dogs head. Thus, and because I haven't "seen them all", I'd never emphatically claim this cap is not an original style, but I sure have my doubts. Maybe someone will post a pic of their original gun with this grip cap.
