Best Answer

Falls Arms guns were made by the J. Stevens Arms & Tool Company c. 1886-1916. "Nitro" would indicate that it was manufactured for the new smokeless powder shells, so it would have been made no earlier than the late 1890s.

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.
