The L.C. Smith Journal, the official publication of the L.C. Smith Collectors Association, is a major benefit of membership. Published quarterly (March, June, September, and December), it is the forum for the organization. Articles about collecting L.C. Smith shotguns and information about individual shotguns, grades, options, accessories, the company, or its employees are featured. Some articles call on you to help with the research by measuring or noting details about shotguns in your collection. Other articles are about hunting and shooting L.C. Smith double guns and single barrel trap guns. Shooting and collecting events of special interest to the members are presented. The Journal allows members to advertise L.C. Smith shotguns, parts, and memorabilia they want to sell and those they wish to purchase. The Journal lists contact information for dealers, gunsmiths, restoration specialists, publications, and accessories.
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 an L.C. Smith shotgun. E-mail the serial number and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. This benefit 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.
Another benefit of membership is the reduced cost of L.C. Smith research letters. The Research Division of the L.C. Smith Collectors Association will search the factory production records for information on individual shotguns and provide all of the existing information in a letter. The cost for members is $50 while others pay $75.
