The lefever Nitro special was made by Ithaca Arms from 1921-1948.That being said i believe that yours was made in 1927.I do know that you can contact Ithaca arms and they will date your shotgun for you.
You can get parts for a Nitro Special shotgun made by Fall Arms Co. at specific gun dealers in your area. You can also check with pawn shops to find used parts to fit your firearm.
the best that I can do is say that the lefever nitro special was made between the years 1921-1948. I contacted Ithaca Arms and they said that My shot gun was made in 1929.
Ithaca Guns manufactured the Lefever Nitro Special after it acquired Lefever Arms in 1916. This model was made between 1921 and 1947; the serial number indicates yours was made in 1924.
It was made by J. Stevens Arms (division of Savage Arms) sometime after 1920.
The "Nitro" refers to smokeless powder, so certainly not much before 1900, probably a few years later. The "and Tool" part of the name was not used after 1916.
Never. 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.
