    Bought a old LC hammer to fool around with. Gun was solid but was your typical 100 plus year old gun. Had a friend who is also a Master Engraver do a little of his magic on it. His brother restored the barrels. Engraver also did the stock and fore arm they are the original wood enhanced with paint and stain.

    Just so the fellas would know Bill, here's the Smith version of William Harnden Foster's Skeet Symbol; found on the left lockplate of the Skeet Special introduced in 1928

    You've got some stunning old shotguns Bill, and this beautiful Elsie is no exception. I'm a little jealous ;)

    Drew, I got the idea after seeing the article in DGJ. Can't remember if you wrote that article or not? But you are correct.

    Thanks guys! Glad you enjoy it. Gun was redone by Kim and Clark Alyworth. Kim advertises in Double Gun Journal. Not sure who does their case colors. Kim's phone no is 906-396-4029. That is a twist steel barrel on my gun. Their work on daqmacus is outstanding also! Regards, Bill
