That's a beauty; any full length pictures?
The leather pad is for Length of pull. I wouldn’t want to modify the wood just so it fit me.
What a beauty! It would be a shame to alter that stock. Thanks for pics.

Thanks for the link. I like the drillings and rifles.Will read it tonight.
Interesting......and accurate re: the Kentucky mule part, at least.
When I was a teenager, went duck hunting with two buddies using a Stevens single shot 12 ga. that looked just like that. I had two boxes of shells and shot most of them. I fired the first shot of the day and got a duck; also the last shot of the day with same results. Should stop there, but in the interest of full disclosure, didn't drop a feather in between. Was black and blue for a week!
It was given to me by my grandfather some time ago. From what I've been able to find, along with family lore, the shotgun was likely produced between 1910 and 1920.
I don't fondle this gun much. Doing so gives me the urge to load some paper hulls with black powder and go shoot it.
My great grandpa left me his L.C.Smith hammer gun. It has fluid steel barrels.
It shoots very even and tight patterns.
I did a little reading to refresh my memory and found out it was Parker that Remington bought rights to, not L C Smith as I stated before.
anything on the underside of the barrel, at first i thought there was a huge chunk missing from the butt stock but it was just a leaf lol. looks like a nice gun tho.
