LEFEVER FE 20 GAUGE SxS DOUBLE BARREL AMERICAN SHOTGUN

LEFEVER FE 20 GAUGE SxS DOUBLE BARREL AMERICAN SHOTGUN

Here’s one of the hardest classic American doubles to find. Twenty-gauges by the Lefever Arms Co. are scarcer than Republican Presidential candidates with sound economic plans.

Of all the major American shotgun makers — Parker. L.C. Smith, Ithaca, Fox — the Lefever Arms Co made the fewest guns. The total number was fewer than 74,000. And because they were built before twenty gauges became popular, very few were made in that gauge — especially in grades F & up.

With damascus barrels and a single-selective trigger, this 20g FE is very curious. My gut tells me it went back to the factory at one point,  but who knows?

    It certainly might be a stretch before you see another of these for sure. Very cool piece.

  2. Gregg says:

    Yeah – especially on the open market. The guns usually sell before a dealer can put them in his inventory.

    I have inherited a shotgun like the one above, with only 1 difference; the gun I have has a straight English or European stock. The serial number is 72417, which should be a 1914 production.
    It is not for sale at any price, but for insurance purposes, what would you think is a fair price?
