Faded Glory...Lefever Nito Special

I posted a couple of cell phone pictures of a Lefever Nitro Special, 16 ga I had put on layaway last week. I picked it up, bought it home, and cleaned it up a little. Got a lot of dust, fine rust, and general crud off it. It locks tight, the bores are bright and shiney. The chambers have been reamed out for 2 3/4" shells, and the stock/forearm most likely have been replaced at some point along the line. Still for $200.00, not too bad.

I could get bit by the double shotgun bug if I'm not careful.

A few slightly better pictures.

The wood really looks nice from this side.

It won't win a beauty contest, that's for sure, but who knows. Maybe it will become a project gun somewhere down the line.

Anytime I see a classic American double it makes me think of the first gun I bought with my own money. It was a field grade L.C. Smith 12 gauge. I sold it like an idiot and regret it to this day.

The first gun I ever bought with money I made working was a Sears-Roebuck 12 ga double (rebadged Stevens 311). 30" mod/full barrels, 2 3/4" chambers.

I sold it the first Christmas I was married to buy Christmas presents for my wife. Now wife and gun are both gone.

I'd like to have the gun back.
