This Lefever H has a lot going for it. It’s hard to find hundred year old guns with symmetrical wear patterns. The 30” uncut Damascus barrels have 2 ¾” chambers with extractors and cocking indicators. Bores are bright. Right choke .725, left .699, I’d say that’s M/F. The barrels were in nice original condition except for a worn area mid way toward the muzzle that lost all its patina. So I sent them to Kody Kearcher for a professional rebrowning. They came out beautiful. The receiver has nice patina with little to no case coloring. The lock plates retain about 80% case color. The finish is all original with very symmetrical wear, like a well cared for honest field gun should look like after a hundred years. Grip cap and butt plate are original. LOP 13 ¾” DAC 1 7/8” DAH 2 ½” neutral cast. Action locks up like a vault and the barrels ring like chimes. This gun should hold its own at any antique SxS shooting event. Great piece of American history. $1795 trozzo51@yahoo.com At the turn of the 20th century, I was told that a SxS shotgun on a variety store shelf cost $5. A Lefever SxS cost $75. DM Lefever was a no compromise master gun maker. It’s reasonable to assume that buyers at that time with the money to buy a Lefever were likely to keep them clean and maintained and take very good care of them. This appears to hold true based on the condition of the several Lefevers that I have acquired. I say that for the original owners. But shotguns this old have gone through three generations and I think subsequent owners maybe did not keep the guns up to par and as such there a many run down Lefevers out there. The cherry guns are as tight as the day they left the factory. They are harder to find and worth a premium to collectors. Speaking for myself, of all the shotguns I shoot, the Lefever SxS out performs everything. The balance, feel and shootability allow me to hit the clays so well, that I really don’t shoot anything other than the Lefevers now.
