To get a parts breakdown you would need to take the shotgun into a gun store. The store will be able to provide an estimate, or order new parts.

Ithaca Firearms manufactured the Lefever Nitro Special shotgun with serial numbers between 101600 and 119899 in 1922.

I would say that with the serial number 1321XX,we are looking at your shotgun being made by ithaca(who made the lefever nitro special) in 1924.

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.

If it doesn't say Lefever somewhere on the gun, I don't think you have a Lefever.

The Lefever Nitro special shotgun was made from 1921-1948.During this time frame the lefever shotguns were owned by the Ithaca Firearms Company.The price range of your shotgun if it has between 60%-90% of its original factory finish remaining is from 300-450 dollars.I hope you find this info helpful.

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.

The reference material I have on the "Lefever Arms Co." lists the last s/n number issued for the "Lefever Shotgun" to be in the 73000 range. This accured after Lefever Arms Co. was purchased by the Ithaca Gun Co. in 1915. For the most part the Lefever product line died out ending with the 73000 range s/n listed above. Ithaca did continue to make shotguns marked "Lefever" off and on for many years after that, but I can find no info. on the s/n numbers issued, but I doubt very much if they ever reached the 300,000 range. Ithaca did make a low cost box lock gun they refered to as Lefever Nitro Special (which in no way can be considered a real Lefever) from 1922 to 1947 the last s/n being in the 360,000 range. Assuming that your gun is a Nitro Special and that Ithaca made very few doubles during the war years then your gun was probably made in the early 1940's.

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.

The Ithaca Gun Company acquired Lefever Arms in 1916, and manufactured the Lefever Nitro Special between 1921 and 1947. The serial number on your gun indicates it is an "A Grade" made in 1937.

This was apparently prior to the acquisition of Lefever by Ithaca, since it appears that the first Ithaca Lefever serial numbers contain 6 digits (Lefever Nitro Special - 1921)

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 Gun Company manufactured the Lefever Nitro Special under the Lefever Arms Co. brand from 1921 through 1947, except 1943 through 1945. The serial number indicates your gun was made in 1925.

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.

Ithaca Gun Co. manufactured the Lefever Nitro Special from 1921 until 1947 (except in 1943 through 1945). The serial number indicates your gun was made in 1929.

Depends on if it is sidelock or boxlock. Generally, 1916-1948. sales@countrygunsmith.net

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.
