Thanks, David. for the data on frame size for the pre-Fulton-Hunter Arms produced Smith guns. Wonder why they reduced the frame size over time- Parker, probably their chief rival for high-end graded guns, went the other route. I have only owned 1 pre-Fulton produced Smith gun- a 12 Quality 2== One of many designs I like, the extractor that worked of a cam in the inset disc in the barrel lug- make removed fired and possibly swollen paper hulls easier- RWTF

Runs, the joint check that was on all Syracuse hammer and hammerless guns carried over to the Fulton era Hunter Arms guns until 1899 when the joint check was eliminated. However Hunter Arms did make another joint check and I did not research how long it was made but a Specialty Grade I own from 1913 has one. I had read that if the spring breaks you will have a tough time removing the barrel from the receiver.

David - All the second type joint check Smith guns I've seen and handled were auto-ejector guns; never seen that device on a manual extractor gun?
