What year was a 12 gauge Lefever Nitro Special SxS serial number 168787 made?

The Ithaca-Lefever Nitro Specials with serial numbers between 158700 and 185399 were manufactured in 1924. Ithaca acquired the Lefever company in 1916, but manufactured two models of double-barrel guns (the Lefever Nitro Special and the Lefever A Grade) under the original company name between 1921 and 1947. Firearms expert Charles Gage estimated the collector value of another piece from that year to be between $200 and $500, depending on condition whether all parts are original.

What is the value of a 16 gauge double barrel double nitro special with serial number 106570 under the barrels and one barrel stamped 2 the other stamped 4 manufactured by Lefever Arms?

Your LeFever 16 in good shape is worth about $300. In excellent shape about $450. It is hard to grade a shotgun without seeing it. Most of the ones I have were good to poor. Your Lefever Nitro Special was actually mfg'd by Ithaca Arms Co about late 1921 or 1922. Ithaca Arms purchased the assets of Lefever Arms in 1916 and started Mfg Nitro Special in 1921. A friend of mine recently purch'd a 12 GA in fair to good condtion for $150.

What is the value of 1931 western arms double barrel 12ga serial number 27639?

The Lefever Arms Co., Inc. that made the Nitro Special Double and Western Arms Corp. that made the Long Range Double began as seperate corporations that were owned by the same folks that owned Ithaca Gun Co., and the guns were built in the Ithaca factory. The early Nitro Specials were marked "Lefever Arms Co., Inc., Ithaca, N.Y." and the early Long Range Doubles were marked "Western Arms Corp., Ithaca, N.Y." Around 1933, they lumped the brands together and the later Lefevers were marked "Lefever Arms Branch, Ithaca Gun Co., Inc." and the Long Range Doubles were marked "Western Arms Branch Ithaca Gun Co., Inc." The Western Arms Long Range Double had a frame made of malleable iron. These were utility grade shotguns- value in 95% condition is about $225.


What is the value of a LeFever Nitro Special shotgun?

LeFever Nitro Specials are not Manufactured By Dan Lefever. They are made by Ithaca Arms Co. Ithaca bought out The Lefever Arms Co. in 1916. Starting with serial #100000 in 1921 and ending in 1947 with #361199. These #'s encompass all bores. No manufacture during WWII. 12 gauges are not extremely rare. I bought one in good to very good condition Aug of 2002 for $400.00. A great book for Lefever history is "Uncle Dan Lefever, Master Gunmaker" by Robert Elliot. The last guy wanted that gun. Those can be found in abundance in mint condition for less than 350.00/that's not to say it's a bad shotgun, these were built for the working man and not real fancy. If you want a hunting double, there are few that compare "bang for buck".

What is the value of the Lefever Nitro Special shotgun?

Built between 1921-1927. By Ithica. Need to know single or double trigger, and checkering on stock, and forearm. Standard double trigger, standard checkering in good to excellent condition worth 1200.00. (Avid double barrel collector) Looking for nitro special 16 ga or 20 ga and Uncle Dan 20 ga. The question of the Lefever Nitro Special can be simply answered by a Blue Book of Guns. 12ga. double trigger in this era 1921-1948 at 70% may bring 400.00 to 500.00. 16ga. has to deduct 10%. An Uncle Dan Lefever will bring considerably more money since it was built by Lefever and not Ithaca, NY. Your s/n indicates it was mfg'd around 1921 to 1922. A friend recently purchased one in fair to good conditon for $150. By-the-way, your Lefever was mfg'd by Ithaca Arms Co after they purchased the assets of Lefever Arms Co in 1916. I just bough one built in 1937 in very good original condition for $210.00. It locks up tight as new, the checkering is not worn, and the geese on the sides and the printing on top the barrels is excellent. They can be found cheap if you have the patience to wait. This one shoots great. A much better gun than the new ones from Turkey, for half the price!


What is the value of a Lefever Nitro Special LLH No 328725?

Made in 1936. Value is dependent on condition, but if in very good condition it might bring around $500 from a collector looking for one. Watch auctions at www.gunbroker.com for comparables.


What is the value of a 16 gauge Ithaca Lefever Nitro Special double barrel 354581?

Made in 1941. 16 GA usually worth a little more than 12 GA, so suspect it would bring $500, plus or minus, if in good condition. Monitor www.gunbroker.com for comparable offerings to see what they are going for.


What is the age and value of a Lefever 410 347908?

Should be a boxlock gun, made by Ithaca using the Lefever name. Probably manufactured in the 1930's. They made two grades in .410, the Nitro Special and the Grade A Field. The .410 is VERY desireable, and condition is so very important to value. You may well be in the $1500-$2000 range or more. We are always interested buyers in early American doubles, and would be interested in seeing digital pictures. sales@countrygunsmith.net

What is the value of 12 gauge lafever arms shotgun?

That's "LeFever." Not "Lafever." And the price depends on many things... Many were custom made. The old ones were of extreme top quality. Latter models that say NITRO are good quality, but inexpensive and made by Ithaca in high quantity.Beware of copies!

What is a Lefever Nitro Special 12 gauge double barrel single trigger sn286651 worth and when was it made?

I also have a Lefever Nitro Special 12 guage, serial #337... which was made between 1936 and 1937, and it's also a single trigger (which I think is rare). Yours was made around 1929. While these are not expensive guns, they are considered high grade American made shot guns and they still shoot great to this day. Lefever made some of America's most collected shotguns as did the Ithaca Gun Company which made your gun. But the double guns made by the Lefever Arms Company are much more rare and much more valuable. They can sell for thousands, and even hundreds of thousands for some of the rarest. The Ithaca Gun Company made about 236,000 Nitro Specials between 1921 and 1948 after they acquired the Lefever name. They came in different gauges but the most common was the 12 gauge with a double trigger. If it were a 16 gauge, it would be worth about 20% more. I'm not sure how much the single trigger adds if anything. Mine is in good to very good condition and I think it's worth around $450. The fact that yours is older should not make much of a difference. The determining factor is the condition. If you do a little research on the internet you can find out everything you need to know about determining the condition and value of your gun. That's what I did after I inherited mine and I've been an admirer of collectable side by sides ever since.


What is the value of Lefever Nitro Special double barrel 16 gauge shotgon serial 354531?

Well, Iam no expert, but I do have one myself. My grandfather gave it to me 37 years ago. I will never sell it for that reason. I have seen them for sale for 350.00 to 550.00. Nice gun, I don't shoot much anymore.
