    Default My New Pea Shooter

    Just received my LC Smith 16 ga field grade, 28" barrels, built in 1938. I cant wait to get this out in the grouse wood and SD fields next fall. Going to pattern it tomorrow and try and break a few clays with it. She fits so nicely in my gun cabinet. My dad made the cabinet for me and the ends are made specifically for sxs's now just need to fill the other end.

    Yeah it is KS, I have double trigger 20 ga o/u. It will be fun to send lead down the barrels this fall.

    Beautiful gun... do you know what the chokes are? I have an Ithaca 16 sxs in improved cylinder and modified and it is perfect for pheasants. I like being able to match the barrel to the flush.

    Ithaca NID 16 gauge (1935)
    Ithaca Two Bolt hammer side by side 12 gauge (1912)
    Ithaca 51 Magnum 20 gauge
    Browning Citori 16 gauge
    Savage 720 16 gauge (1939)
    Marlin 90 16 gauge (1944)
    Ithaca 37's pump 16 gauge (1941 and 1952)

    Beautiful looking gun. Is it all original or has it been refinished? I've never shot a double trigger and don't plan to try and learn at my age.

    Zeb I bet you would enjoy a Double trigger gun , say when a bird gets up long when your Britt tracked him over a 1/4 mile , it's nice touch off the back trigger and send the bird tumbling .

    I've got a 1896 smith, that was bought by my great gramma 16 guage, 28 inch barrels. Great gun.
