Lefever Nitro Special 16 Ga Shotgun 26” IC & IM

The Lefever Nitro Special shotgun is one of the workhorse shotguns of the early to mid-20th century and brought down untold tons of game. A basic boxlock it proved to be a strong, reliable, durable and good handling gun. This example features 28” barrels with modified and full chokes and 2-3/4” chambers, automatic safety and checkered walnut stocks. At six pounds, six ounces it’s a pleaser to carry and handle. LOP is 12-7/8” & 13-3/4”. It retains about 80% blue with scattered scratches, generalized handling loss and some tiny oxidation spotting, the frame retains about 25% case color while the bores are perfect mirrors and the stocks are completely sound with scattered light to moderate handling marks and a shallow chip from the right top of the forend. It is 100% on-face and lock-up is tight as a tick (tested with the forend removed), the action works as it should and the top lever comes to rest well right of center.
