The L.C. Smith shotgun is an American classic and is unquestionably one of the finest shotguns ever made. The L.C. Smith Collectors Association was formed to (1) stimulate and educate members and the public in their knowledge of the history and production of the L.C. Smith shotgun, (2) encourage the value of good sportsmanship to shooter and collector members and the public, (3) promote a positive, responsible use of firearms to members and the public, and (4) encourage creation of an L.C. Smith museum.
The L.C. Smith Collectors Association provides this website to members and nonmembers. However, we encourage you to become a member to be able to enjoy the L.C. Smith Journal and all of the other benefits associated with membership.
We believe that you will enjoy exploring this website to learn more about the rich history and many grades of the L.C. Smith shotgun. It will be especially valuable if you are searching for information about the L.C. Smith you inherited from your grandfather, the one you have been shooting for many years, or the one you have just acquired or are thinking about purchasing. MEMBERS ONLY: One of the benefits of membership in the L.C. Smith Collectors Association is that you may request basic information (such as barrel length or options) about a shotgun. If you are a MEMBER, you may email the serial number and questions to email@example.com. If you are not a member of the L.C. Smith Collectors Association, you may request a research letter.
To obtain all of the existing information about your shotgun, the Research Division of the L.C. Smith Collectors Association can search the factory production records and can provide this information in a letter. Order a research letter by completing a form and sending a check ($50 for members, $75 for others).
