There are three lengths of action (not including the Model Seven's lightweight action, which is even shorter than the 'standard' short action). There is the short action for cartridges up to 2.800 in (71.12 mm) in overall length like the .308 Winchester cartridge family, the standard action for cartridges up to 3.340 in (84.84 mm) in overall length like the .30-06 Springfield and .300 Winchester Magnum cartridge families and the long action for magnum calibers exceeding 3.340 in (84.84 mm) in overall length like the .300 Remington Ultra Magnum and .375 Holland & Holland cartridge families.

L C Smith dbl SXS 16 field grade shot gun. Left barrel says Hunter Arms Co. Inc. Mfrs Fulton NY USA. Back of barrels and on action are #'s FW 101398. Trying to determine age and value?

Hello, John -

If you have not yet discovered the L. C. Smith Collectors Association web site, then this is the link to the association home page:

Reading the association's article here may prove instructive about your shotgun:

On the association home page, in the left side bar, scroll down to the link for Shotguns. Through that link you will find a link for Year of Manufacture. Click or tap on that link.

On the web page for Year of Manufacture, near the bottom, you will find this sentence:
To obtain all of the existing information about your shotgun, the Research Division of the L.C. Smith Collectors Association can search the factory production records and can provide this information in a letter.
(End quote)
There is a charge for such research, however.

Best wishes.
