Smith Corona 6 groove quest

Post by Hippycrowe »

How many of the 6 groove barrel Smith Corona were made. I have read 5000 some people say up to 15,000. Mine is right at the 1st 5000.

The metal is in great shape and the sporter stock is pretty nice too.

the barrel has an ever so faint "1" in front of the 2 42 on the SC barrel
