    The following LC Smith is a super clean gun, but with a "little problem".

    The fella that owns this gun, purchased it several years ago but never shot it. A few weeks ago, he sold the gun to another local hunter here locally. After two shots, this is what happened.

    I thought...YIKES!!, someone will be going the small claims court, but that was not the case. The original owner refunded the buyers money back. Now he's looking at getting the best offer over $500.

    Upon looking at the split bbl, it is quite obvious someone had the bores reamed and polished (not so well). The wall thickness is .018", a little too thin for my tastes.

    Only the left bbl is damaged, the ribs are still perfectly straight. This would make a good candidate for sleeving, both bbl's of course.

    Email me or call...218-947-3600 if interested.

    Here are some pictures.....

    I had the exact same problem with an L.C. Smith Speciality Grade about 30 years ago. I was shooting geese and a section of the barrel blew away. We never found the piece. I was shooting heavy Winchester goose loads. I called a Winchester rep I knew and told him the story. He arranged with the factory to have me send in the gun and the rest of the shells in the box for inspection and the Winchester Gun Company sent me a new Pigeon Grade 101 in exchange.
