The rotary-fastening top bolt was invented by Alexander T. Brown in 1883. A year later it found its first use on the side-by-side shotguns made […]

I used to be hot for Lefevers – especially ones in 16 gauge.  I owned three F-grades 16s at one point, including one that was practically new. These days, my passion for Uncle Dan’s doubles has cooled a bit. But I have to say, the Lefever you see here does get my heart pumping. Its […]
