Our Assessment: L. C. Smith shotguns were made in the United States as early as 1878 by W. H. Baker Co. and L. C. Smith . From 1890-1946, L. C. Smith shotguns were manufactured by Hunter Arms Company, and then by the L. C. Smith Gun Co. from 1946-1950. In 1968 Marlin acquired the label and began making them, but by 2004, they were manufactured in Italy. This shotgun is a good example of the outstanding quality possible in an American made firearm. The fitting of all parts is tight, and the bores are like mirrors. Although the metal shows a little wear, the wood is nice looking. This shotgun still has a lot of years left for someone who appreciates a quality firearm.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This C&R eligible shotgun can be transferred in California.
