    Hello Folks,

    I ended up bring home an old 12 ga. SxS from an auction this weekend. Only problem, there is not a name stamped anywhere that I can see. Any idea what brand it might be?


    Thanks, Kevin @ 402-463-3415

    It appears to be a Stevens 310 style or predecessor or Savage/Fox equivalent.

    An old, very old Seminole perhaps.

    Its a brand new Holland & Holland 16 ga. In order to shoot it you need to develop a 16ga wad for 7/8 to 1oz of shot. It should have a larger base than the R16 or the AA16.

    Just a guess, but it looks a lot like a LeFever Nitro Long Range.

    I have one in the gun safe somewhere. Good shooting, low stocked and kicks

    like a mule, killed a lot of ducks with it before the switch to steel shot.

    Yep, Le Fever Nitro. Should be some real faded out ducks on the side of the receiver.

    I have one also.

    Thanks everyone,

    Looks like it is a 1925 LeFever Nitro. Still for the life of me I can't find any markings.

    b12, Just what do I say?!?!?!?!


    Thanks Again!! Kevin @ 402-463-3415

    On top of the barrels, just either side of the rib at the standing breech, it should have lefever stamped into the barrels.
