Re: LC Smith Double Barrel info
Contrary to your friends, Smith barrel marked "Royal Steel" are indeed fluid steel barrels and not Damascus; and further the chambers in those barrels are 2 3/4", today's standard length 12-bore shell. Have the gun checked for soundness by a qualified double gun smith; and if it checks out, enjoy shooting with some lower pressure or "lite" loaded shells. You'll have a great time; and if you want to pay the restoration costs, we can recommend gunsmiths who can restore the gun to virtually as new condition so that it's still around for the next 100 years.
