    A few months ago I saw a beautifull LC Smith Eagle Grade with a 32" barrel in at least 90% condition, metal and wood, at La Mesa Collectibles in San Diego, Ca, here is the link to their website:

    Thought I would use this opportunity to try to re-post a photo of 3 L.C.Smith SBT trap guns (they are not for sale). From top to bottom -Specialty, Eagle, Crown. Tom S. (welderman)

    So is it safe to say that L.C. Smith never made a sidelock trapgun in a single barrel? Beautiful workmanship in those guns Welderman.

    The old L.C.Smith SBTs are great guns. I don't shoot mine regularly. Their original owners were not built like me, so they don't fit me very well, and I don't want to change them. They are still fun to shoot. Value of an Eagle SBT is difficult to judge. It is not listed in the Blue Book or the Standard Catalogue. According to Brophy, there were 56 of them made which makes them rarer than the Crown grade (88 made). I would guess $3-6k depending on condition and how badly the buyer wants it. Anyone seriously interested in a better estimate might consult the L.C.Smith Collectors Association (www.lcsmith.org). Tom S. (welderman)

    Made a deal with the man at La Mesa collectables and he backed out so I am still looking. Would like one of the higher grade guns. Thanks, Bill

    Too bad the man backed out of the deal, was he asking something under 4 grand? I know he has had that Elsie Eagle Grade in the shop for over a year.

    Did he send you pictures of the gun?
