12 gauge Lefever Arms Co Double Barrel SxS Shotgun

12 gauge Lefever Arms Co Double Barrel SxS Shotgun

Here’s a great looking American double that’s coming to auction tomorrow, 7/25 @ 9am EST. Morphy’s Auctions in Denver, PA, has the gun. From what I can see, it looks like a nice, old SXS. The only problem I can see is the bbls look like they may have been blued at one time – but I could be wrong.

Daniel Myron Lefever was a prolific American inventor and he patented the design this shotgun is built on in 1880.

12 gauge Lefever Arms Co Double Barrel SxS Shotgun: Serial # 26295 This early C grade reads Lefever Arms Company on the right barrel and Fine Damascus Steel on the left barrel. The 30″ barrels have 2 – 1/2″ chambers and a bore diameter of .742 on both tubes. With a choke constriction of .036 on each tube this makes it choked full and full. The highly engraved receiver has hunting scenes with a dog in a circle on both the right and left side plate. The gun features double triggers, automatic ejectors, cocking indicators, tear drop side panels and a checkered capped pistol grip. The highly figured walnut buttstock has a LOP of 14 – 1/4″ to a leather pad. A silver oval shaped inlay is located 5″ from the toe. With a little TLC this gun will be ready for the October woods.
