For years now, the Southern SxS has been one of the finest events in the country for fine shotguns and doubles rifles. I’ve been to it many times, and I always come across guns that impress me–and that show me I still have a lot to see and learn.
Last year’s event was virtual. But this year, the Southern SxS year is roaring back. Judging by its solid list of exhibitors, it will be a great event.
If you go, one exhibitor you won’t want to miss is Lion Stone Consulting. Josh Lowensteiner at told me he’s bring a ton of great doubles, including one of the Holy Grails of American shotguns: The awesome Lefever you see here.
This guns is an all original, Special Order 8 gauge with 32″ Whitworth fluid steel bbls. It’s thought to have been made for President Grover Cleveland. If you would like to own an American SxS shotgun that has it all — condition, scarcity, provenance, prestige — talk to Josh. This Lefever has all that and much more.
