Legendary LC Smith Hammerless Model in Grade No. 0:  1906 Production / Used Condition, Great Historic Scatter Gun For Cowboy Action! 

History From The L.C. Smith Collectors Asso Website:

Production of the No. 0 shotgun began in 1894, and it was the lowest grade available until the introduction of the No. 00 in 1898. The catalog (1900) copy said: "A well-made gun, with all improvements to meet the demands of sportsmen for a reliable gun at a low price. Damascus barrels, choke-bored; English walnut stock; half pistol grip; checkered and well finished . . ." "L.C. Smith" is stamped on the lock plates".

There is no engraving on the receiver. 

Condition:

This shotgun is in very good condition for a 111 year old working gun! The barrels were cut to scatter ( 21" ) and a brass bead sight installed long ago. The exterior of the Damascus barrels are in good condition with little to no surface rust. The interior of the barrels show some medium pitting. Lock-up between the barrels and frame in very tight. There is minor surface rust/ discoloration on the receiver and is visible in the photos. The stock and fore-end are original but were refinished with varnished at some point long ago. The varnish job is good but some of the checking has been filled in a bit. The stock is not cracked and there are no major digs, only some minor imperfections. One of the retaining rings around the left side firing pin is broken in half and would need replacement before the gun can be fired.  ( see photo ) Triggers tight and break crisply. 

Over all this shotgun is in great shape for a gun that clearly saw time as a working gun in the old west. It would be a great candidate for use in cowboy action shooting or as a restoration project.
