Lefever Side Plate 12 Ga SXS Shotgun 1894 Antique

This Lefever side plate 12 gauge shotgun was made in 1894 (SN 22972) and is a G grade featuring 26 Damascus barrels with 2-3/4 chambers and CYL & CYL chokes (though it does not appear that they have been cut see photo) with matted rib and brass bead, push button forend release, cocking indicators, automatic safety and checkered walnut stocks with grip cap and original round logo butt plate. It retains about 90% Damascus figure while the bores are mostly perfect mirrors with some very slight, very shallow pitting in the right tube towards the breech end and the stocks are completely sound with thinly scattered light to moderate handling marks and scratches. The barrels ring nicely, the triggers, automatic safety and cocking indicators work as they should. Lock-up is 100% on-face with zero movement (tested with forearm removed) and the top lever comes to rest just slightly to the right of center. All serial numbers match. Considering his 124 year stay on the planet this old fella is in extraordinary condition.
