Solid price for a 20g Lefever EE grade shotgun…

The Lefever Arms Co. turned out some of the nicest double barrel shotguns ever made in America. From 1880 to 1919 they made close to 70,000 side-by-sides. Of all these guns, 20 gauges like this one that was just on Gunbroker are the hardest to find.

This 20 gauge is an E-grade–a middle-grade model for Lefever. E-grade Lefever are my favorite American doubles. Take a look at the pics and you’ll see why.

And BTW, there’s something real wrong with the buttstock on this gun. If it was right and original, I bet this gun would have sold for at least 1/3 more.

As is, it went for $6,325.
