Lefever EE Grade 12ga. SxS Shotgun – BEAUTIFUL DAMASCUS, GREAT DIMENSIONS: 1901, 12 Gauge, 7lbs 10oz, SxS Serial Number: 35307E. Most who pursue American doubles are aware that Lefever Arms Co. of Syracuse, N.Y. produced very elegant shotguns.  The engraving is better than most in its tasteful application, the frames were ornately sculpted and shaped, and the workmanship overall was superior to the competition of the day.  With the last Lefever being produced in 1919, Lefever produced relatively few guns; in the range of 50.000 or so in all grades and gauges, most being lower grade guns.  Mr. Elliot’s book “Uncle Dan Lefever—Master Gunmaker” notes few high-grade Lefevers were produced, and most gunners that search for fine American vintage double guns are aware that there are few Lefever EE Grade guns ever seen for sale, especially in great original condition.  MOST IMPORTANTLY, THIS LEFEVER, SN35307 MADE IN 1901, RETAINS PLENTY OF  FACTORY ORIGINAL CASE COLORS. Price: $4,450

Ruger Red Label 28 gauge, OU Shotgun, 1st year NIB

Summer’s just getting started and that’s great news. It means we’re getting closer to grouse & woodcock season.

As you daydream about fall colors and flushing birds, you’re probably thinking about the right shotgun to carry, too. Well, this new-to-you 28g Ruger Red Label OU would be the perfect choice.

I remember dreaming about Red Labels decades, ago. Back when I was a kid, they were the only OUs most gunshops carried. I spent a lot of time leaning across counters and trying to get a closer look at them.

I don’t think I ever saw a 28g. If I had, I’m sure I would have fallen in love with it. While the Ruger Red Label 12s & 20s can have more warts than a Halloween witch, the 28s are as close to perfect as these guns get. They’re fairly priced, too.

This one is on Gunbroker.com now and the auction ends 6/5/2016 @ 3:45:18 PM ET.
