Allan, I tried to enlarge the one picture that you show the receiver that has the slots on each side. I could not enlarge it but under the serial number should have a number stamp. |
This gun has the engraving of an early Fulton Quality 2. The barrels look to be what is referred to as Good Damascus.
L.C. Smith Gun Company was sold to John Hunter in 1888-89 and the machinery was moved from Syracuse to Fulton. The Transition guns are from this movement and most do not have a makers name on the barrels and some of the lugs that protrude through the receiver still had squared corners. This one has the rounded corners as the Fulton guns had.
Here is a picture of that insert. It is the top picture.
If you could show a picture of the top of the barrels, and a closer picture of the side plates, and the flat on the receiver where the serial number is, we could help you better.
