I'm sure someone has LeFever's serial lists but they don't seem to be readily available. The Nitro Special was manufactured from 1921 to 1948 if that's close enough for you.

Answer

Ithaca manufactured the Lefever Nitro Specials with serial numbers between 185400 and 214399 in 1925.

Ithaca Firearms manufactured the Lefever Nitro Special after it purchased Lefever Arms Co. in 1916. This model was made between 1921 and 1947; the serial number indicates yours 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.


The Nitro Special was introduced in 1921 and discontinued in 1947. Yours is fairly late, probably late 1930's.AnswerIthaca Firearms manufactured the Lefever Nitro Special (A Grade) with serial numbers between 357300 and 361199 in 1947. This was the last year that model was made.


I can only say that the Lefever model nitro special was made from 1921-1948.maybe another person with more intricate records of production will be able to give you a more accurate year of production.


Ithaca Gun Co. manufactured the Lefever Nitro Special after it acquired the Lefever Arms Co. in 1916. This model was manufactured from 1921 until 1947, except during WW 2, from 1943 through 1945. The serial number indicates your gun was made in 1929.


According to doublegunshop.com you gun (model # 157078) was made in 1923. Lefever Nitro Special - (Made by Ithaca Gun Co.) 1922 119899 Lefever Nitro Special - (Made by Ithaca Gun Co.) 1923 158699 If you are interested in selling it, reply to paladin-six@hotmail.com. Sincerely,


I can say that the LeFever Nitro Special was made from 1921-1948.I do not know if the serial numbers by year of production are available in the public domain.You may have the Grade A field model due to the engraved ducks on the side.These were made from 1934-1942.Barrel length was available from 26in.-32in,of which your shotgun fits.



I have a 16 guage nitro special with serial 149296. i have pinpointed it in the area of 1925-6. nitro specials were created from 1923-1946 serial numbers 100000-360000. since yours is 206508, it wold probaly be an early to mid 30's model. sadly, nitro specials aren't worth much. Lucky to get $300 off one, because a. it's not a real lefever (made by ithica, who bought the company out) and b. it was originally a cheap weapon. my advice: use it for hunting. my nitro shoots great and it's a fun gun. keep it in good condition. the're starting to make new parts for them, so the ones with all stock parts (like ours) will go up in PRICE


there is one made by I thaca, model nitro special, sold under the name Lefever manufactured between 1922 and 1948, hammers are not showing. RG


yeah, i shoot my 1923 model 12 ga. all the time, buy the AA rounds at walmart, they are lower presure than normal, and they are cheaper. just make sure they are 2 3/4 LEAD shot.


The value of ANY gun is based on 3 factors- exact MAKE, MODEL, and CONDITION. You gave us ONE of the THREE factors we need. There were several models of the Lefever shotgun- value may range from $100 to $900. You will need a "hands-on" appraisal to determine actual value.


The Dodge Nitro ceased production in 2012. The last Nitro was the 2012 year model.


The Lefever single barrel trap gun was discontinued in 1942. Any Lefever in better than 90% condition is extremely rare and difficult to evaluate. In 90% condition it would be worth about $550; in 10%, $195.


The Ithaca Gun Co manufactured the Lefever single barrel shotguns under the Lefever Arms Co. name after it acquired the company in 1916. This model was made between 1927 and 1942; the serial number indicates yours was made in 1928.


Yes, Nitro model planes are radio controlled. All of the Nitro planes are sold in kits that you have to put together before you try to fly them. They also can be gas controlled.


Your Shotgun was made by Lefever from 1885-1919.Lefever started business in the year 1885.A (G grade) model hammerless 12 gauge shotgun will range in price from 800-1,400 dollars for a gun showing between 10%-70% of its original finish remaining,and a good set of bores.


The model number is on the water table directly after the serial number, usually a letter ranging from A thru I with I the least fancy.


The best answer is to google it or wiki it. Is this what u want or do u mean what is nitro fuel used for? It can be used for model cars, helicopters, planes etc.


You can legally fly a nitro airplane in the United States. The recommendation is to fly with membership of the AMA (Academy of Model Aeronatics), www.modelaircraft.org


Have it checked over by a competent gunsmith


An early model Lefever single-barrel 12-gauge shotgun with a 30-inch plain barrel can be found for sale online for $300. This is the price for one that is in excellent condition.


There are on road and off road models of nitro RC trucks. Choose an off road model for dirt roads. More information is available at http://www.rccartalk.com/nitro-rc-cars.html


I have the exact same gun. I'm not sure exactly how old it is but it was my great grandfathers so it's probably 80+ years. These Guns were made until 1942 and ceased after the war was in full swing. newtest3 I have nearly the same shotgun as well, from all info I have gathered, it is a true Lefever design, which means it is pre-1921 and assembled by Ithica using left over parts from their buyout of Lefever Syracuse, NY. After '21, all info I have found point to Ithica selling a less than wonderful Ithica designed shotgun under the Lefever name. Ithaca bought out Lefever in 1916. In 1927 they intorduced the Lefever Single Barrel Long Range field and Trap model. Serial No. 11697 was mfg. in 1928 and the model was produced until 1942.
