LC Smith 20Ga Feather Wt

Here is a rather special gun! Though "in the white" and shootable, the original intention was to create a unique, elaborately engraved, "over the top" custom gun. The project started several years ago with, already at the time, a relatively rare 20 gauge featherweight LC Smith, double triggers, with ejectors! After extensive custom metal work and fabrication, by the late William "Bill" Crowley, the gun now sports one of a kind hand detachable sidelocks with no exposed pins, extended forend latch plate, extended beaded trigger guard and hand fitted heel and toe clips on the checkered butt.
Larry Amrine crafted the custom fore end and buttstock from beautifully figured walnut, with the following dimensions:
14-1/4" pull, 1-3/8" drop at comb, 2-1/2" drop at heel, six degrees pitch and no detectible cast.
Wood and metal fit, finish and sculpting are truly "American Best Quality" as demonstrated on the perfect drop points, checkering and the mini "shelves where wood meets the frame and the bottom of the barrels...Just superb and awe-inspiring craftsmanship!
This lively 6-1/4 pound beauty wears 26" "Armor Steel" barrels with 2-3/4" chambers, choked right 0.017" and left 0.027"
The previous owner, World-renowned Master Firearms Engraver Terry Wallace, unfortunately passed away, before applying his engraving tools and extreme talent for gold inlays to this perfect "Engraver's Dream of a Steel Canvas." Since this was to be his own personal firearm, for use in the field, he spared no expense when it came to metal and stock fabrication.
It is now our pleasure to offer this unique piece for sale to the discriminating collector or aspiring or seasoned engraver, to continue on the path of completion with lavish engraving (to take advantage of the pinless sidelocks) or to simply black the gun, producing an American style "Funereal" gun, similar to some Purdeys, or to finish in any style desired! The "canvas" is here, waiting for an artist! Offered at $12000, reasonable offers will be considered. SOLD
