My LeFever is an Ithaca. The markings on both sides of the receiver says - LEFEVER ARMS CO ITHACA, N.Y. I’m glad that you asked about it. The serial # is 12496 & was manufactured in 1928. It has no rib on it so it’s more of a ‘field’ gun then a ‘trap’ gun & has a safety. Nevertheless, it hits clay trap targets as it would a rabbit. I have to use 1oz. loads or sometimes the hull gets stuck in the barrel.
At our recent Hunter Arms Homecoming I happened upon a Ithaca made Lefever Grade A sxs. A pleasure to shoot & choked IC/M - a nice combination. A WWII friend has several Lefevers & would like to move them to a friend (me). But I ask myself - “Do I ‘need’ another sxs?” I think I’ll call him. 😁 HAPPY TRAILS! Roger
