Cogswell & Harrison, 20b. Victor Model Sidelock SxS
Cogswell & Harrison, 20b. Victor Model Sidelock SxS

Cogswell & Harrison, 20b. Victor Model Sidelock SxS: COGSWELL & HARRISON, 20 b., EARLY “VICTOR” MODEL, MADE IN 1880 (Victor Models first introduced in 1879). This is a back-action full sidelock ; likely one of the first made in this small gauge which is rare in any English shotgun. Original Damascus barrels have updated “BNP” nitro proofs (see pix) and measure 28-1/8″, have 2-1/2″ chambers, and are in excellent condition inside and out.  Min. barrel-wall thicknesses are at least 20 thousandths at the very IC/IC muzzle, where there is little pressure. Then graduating to 30 and much greater when measuring towards the chambers. Nevertheless, I have always shot low-pressure RST cartridges in this gun — and since it was built in 1880 it has been fed with black powder for at least a few years prior to my 20 years as owner …it has been with me since I purchased from Holt’s in England — this gun has been cleaned of the black powder and babied throughout its Nitro years! English stock has:  14-3/8″ LOP, 1-1/2″ DAC; 2″ DAH.  This gun weighs 5lb.-10 Oz. and is originally cased with label. Price: $5,250*

John Wilkes 28g boxlock SxS with exquisite engraving and features and also a long length of pull

John Wilkes 28g boxlock SxS with exquisite engraving and features and also a long length of pull: Boxlocks – Built between the wars (1928) this little 28g. has many hard-to-find features as well as wonderful wood and engraving. The game scene engraving, the high grade wood, and the long length of pull make this petite flower a rare find. Wilkes was a highly respected London gun maker. Serial Number: 10181 Ejectors: Yes Barrels: 26″ Barrel Type: Steel Action: Boxlock Ejector Gauge: 28 gauge Stock Comb: 1 7/16″ Stock Heel: 2 3/16″ Stock Cast: 1/8″ LOP: 15″ Weight: 5 lbs 14 ozs Choke Left: .018 full in 28g Choke Right: .013″ Mod Proof:Nitro: 2 3/4″ Minimum Wall Thickness Left: .032″ Minimum Wall Thickness Right: .033.  It is said in the UK that of all the double guns built there before WWII that 90% were 12g. guns. The next most common gauge among the remaining 10% were 20g. guns, the next were 16g. guns, and the next .410 doubles. Interesting that 28g. were the smallest and rarest gauge of guns built in the UK during this period. This explains why they are so hard for us to find and why it is common when we are searching for them that when asking a dealer they often say “Dont you know that 28g. guns made in the UK are rare as rocking horse shit?” Price: $12,600*

It is the ultimate bird or small gauge skeet gun. I am selling this one on consignment and as such lay-a-way can’t be used. It does of course have the standard 3-day inspection. Price: $6,799*

EXCEPTIONAL LEFEVER 8 GAUGE REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN OWNED BY PRESIDENT GROVER CLEVELAND
EXCEPTIONAL LEFEVER 8 GAUGE REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN OWNED BY PRESIDENT GROVER CLEVELAND

This 8g Lefever is one of my favorite American doubles out there right now. It has it all — original condition, scarcity, and a celebrity connection. It’s coming on Monday in Guyetter and Deeter’s Sept 2023 Fine Sporting Arms auction.

Guyette and Deeter, Firearms and decoy auctioneers
Guyette and Deeter, Firearms and decoy auctioneers

Lefevers built some of the best-looking American shotguns of all time. If these SxSs have a downside, it’s that nice ones are extremely hard to find. Compared to other American makers, the Lefever Arms Co. didn’t build many guns. And also like the other American makers, Lefever built a handful of shotguns in 8 gauge. All that makes this Lefever is one of the most collectible out there.

1938 Vintage Lefever Arms Ithaca "A" Grade .410 Double w/ 26" Barrels, Ejectors, & Single Trigger ** RARE w/ Factory Letter! **
1938 Vintage Lefever Arms Ithaca “A” Grade .410 Double w/ 26″ Barrels, Ejectors, & Single Trigger ** RARE w/ Factory Letter! **

1938 Vintage Lefever Arms Ithaca “A” Grade .410 Double w/ 26″ Barrels, Ejectors, & Single Trigger ** RARE w/ Factory Letter! **: This is a very special all-original Lefever / Ithaca “A” Grade .410 Ga. double-barrel shotgun made in 1938, complete with an original November of 1975-dated factory letter. One of only 150 made in .410 gauge, this extremely-cool and beautiful little double features a case-colored receiver, a factory gloss blue finish on the barrels, 26″ inch fluid-steel barrels choked “Modified” and “Full” with 3″ inch chambers, a checkered solid rib with a red front bead sight and an ivory mid-bead, automatic ejectors (special order), a single trigger (special order), a tang-mounted automatic safety, and a point-pattern checkered American Walnut stock set with a beavertail forearm and pistol-grip buttstock.  The beavertail forearm has a push-button release and an ebony diamond inlay at the front edge, and the buttstock features a factory black pistol grip cap and a factory black serrated buttplate. While the original Lefever Arms of Syracuse, New York Discontinued operations in 1916, it was bought by the Ithaca Gun Company sometime shortly after.  In 1921 Ithaca decided to use the Lefever name to brand a high-quality but lower-cost field gun they were manufacturing, calling it the Lefever Nitro Special.  This allowed Ithaca to maintain the prestige of the Ithaca name but still produce a lower-cost shotgun.  The Lefever Nitro Special was a big success for the company and by 1934 Ithaca decided to offer an “upgraded” version of the gun, calling it the Lefever “A” Grade.  The “A” Grade guns would feature a color case-hardened frame with some minimal engraving, an improved checkered solid rib design, and a better grade of wood.  Automatic ejectors and a single trigger could be special ordered on this model for an additional cost.  The production run of the Lefever “A” Grade ran from 1934 until 1940, with a total of only 2,350 guns produced.  Out of the 2,350 made, 1,000 were 12 Gauge, 600 were 16 Gauge, 600 were 20 Gauge, and only 150 were .410 Gauge.  This particular example is serial number 301038 and is one of the 150 .410 Gauge guns made.  It was shipped in 1938 to Herbert Hearn Hardware company in Cambridge, Maryland and is listed in their records as it sits now, as a 26″ inch gun choked “Modified” and “Full” with ejectors and a single trigger.  A quick internet search turns up some old pictures of the Hearn building when it was still in business as well as some pictures of what remains of the building today (which was being restored as of 2017).  As you can see from the pictures, this very handsome little Lefever has been used but not abused.  All of the finish that remains on this shotgun is original, and it has not been altered or “improved” in any way.  It is a very classy double with lots of original gloss blue showing on the barrels and patches of case colors still showing on the receiver, particularly in the protected areas.  The factory stampings of “Lefever Arms, Branch Ithaca Gun Co. Inc. Ithaca, N.Y.” and “LEFEVER A GRADE” on the top of the chambers is still clear and legible.  All of the serial numbered parts are matching and original, including the forearm metal, receiver, and barrels.  The stock set is stamped with the serial number as well, with the beavertail forearm stamped on the underside between the barrel channels and the buttstock stamped under the tang of the triggerguard.  The bores in the 26″ inch barrels are perfect and mirror-bright.  They are free from any pitting, dents, bulges, or damage of any kind.  The stock set on this Lefever is in very good condition overall, free from any cracks, chips, repairs, or major damage.  All of the factory stock hardware is intact and nothing has been modified.  The checkered panels on the wrist and forearm are still clean and show only light wear.  This “A” Grade Lefever has a perfect, tight lock-up, and is perfectly “on face” with no wiggle or slop.  The single trigger, automatic ejectors, and automatic safety all work perfectly.  We have no doubt that this Lefever will function just as well today as the day it left the factory, and should do so for many more decades.   If you have been looking for a classy and collectible American-made vintage .410 double, this is your chance to get one of the rarest we have had in decades.  This Lefever Ithaca should not only be an excellent field gun that you can enjoy shooting, but an excellent long-term investment as well.  There can’t be too many of the original 150 .410’s made that are still floating around out there in original condition, much less with special order automatic ejectors and a single trigger like this one! Price: $6,500

Ahhh…so this is how it works. A 10g Lefever sidecocker …

Daniel Myron Lefever was a gun-making genius, and the great-looking side-by-side you see here was one of his creations. This shotgun is a 10-gauge, D-grade Lefever “Sidecocker”. Check out the video above to see how it earned the “Sidecocker” nickname and how it overcame a “problem” hammerless shotguns had when they were introduced in the late 1870s and 1880s.

Extremely rare and fine Lefever D Grade 10 Bore Sidecocker with original Bernard Damascus barrels
Extremely rare and fine Lefever D Grade 10 Bore Sidecocker with original Bernard Damascus barrels

Lefever patented his sidecocker design in 1880. According to the Lefever Arms Collectors Association site, it was the first commercially successful American hammerless shotgun.

While there are several interesting features on these guns — the compensating action, the push-up lever on the top that opens the gun, the cocked-indicator nipples on the locks — the most interesting one is the lever on the left side of the action. That’s the “cocker” in sidecocker. When you push it down, it pushes the into the “cocked” position.

Extremely rare and fine Lefever D Grade 10 Bore Sidecocker with original Bernard Damascus barrels

OK. But doesn’t it eliminate one of the key advantages of the hammerless design  — self cocking? Yes, but back when this gun was introduced, not everyone loved the idea of a shotgun that cocked on its own. Up until the 1870s, almost every firearm had external hammers that shooters manually cocked. People liked the control and sense of security this gave them. The sidecocker design created a hammerless shotgun that retained the hammergun attributes some shooters still wanted in a new gun.

Extremely rare and fine Lefever D Grade 10 Bore Sidecocker with original Bernard Damascus barrels
Extremely rare and fine Lefever D Grade 10 Bore Sidecocker with original Bernard Damascus barrels

Lefever used his sidecocker design from around 1883-1889 to build approximately 750 firearms, including a handful of double rifles and 3-barrel models (two shotgun barrels, one rifle). The shotguns came in six grades: AA, A, B, C, D, & E.

In 1883, the D-grade shown here cost about $125 — a lot of money back when a $5-$6 a week was good wage.

Extremely rare and fine Lefever D Grade 10 Bore Sidecocker with original Bernard Damascus barrels

Extremely rare and fine Lefever D Grade 10 Bore Sidecocker with original Bernard Damascus barrels: Truly a beautiful early sidecocking gun made with original 30″ Bernard Damascus barrels.  The gun made with capped pistol grip buttstock which is of very fancy flame grained American Walnut and terminates with an original checkered horn buttplate.  The splinter forend with triangular horn tip is nicely and finely checkered.  Action is finely engraved, likely by Jacob Glahn with well detailed dogs on both sides as seen in the photos.

The gun remains in fine totally original untouched condition.  Barrels retain about 90-95%.  Frame has toned to a pleasing gray with perhaps as much as 25% color in the protected areas around the lever on the left side, engraving is crisp throughout.  Stocks are excellent, checkering has thinned from handling but is all still present and visible and original.  Buttplate is original and excellent.  Bores are mostly bright and shiny with a hint of frosting ahead of the chambers but overall excellent.  Truly a rare and untouched Sidecocker!
