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
