Re: Odd LC Smith
Without seeing comparison pics of the forearms, this is what I believe will account for the differences. The original Damascus barrels were fitted with Hunter's Type I auto-ejector mechanism; and the later replacement steel barrel set with Hunter's Type II auto-ejector mechanism. Forearms from Type I and Type II auto ejector guns are mechanically different, but post comparison pics and we can advise you if my theory is indeed correct. In the interim, consider coming to the Southern Side x Side/LC Smith vs. Parker Challenge; there you can shoot lead loaded shot shells till your body can't take any more. This is a great event and the best fun you'll ever experience at a vintage shooting event.
