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.

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

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