Can someone give me some info/value on this shotgun?

I have an old 16 gauge, side by side Lefever shotgun. I have found out that is was made in 1925, but this is the only info I have found. Can anyone here tell me anything about this gun (hopefully including what the value might be)

Need more info. If the dating is correct......Nitro special, 26-32 inch barrels, varous chokes, box lock, extractors, checkered pistol grip stock.

Condition determines value....from $200 to $450.

Add $75 for single trigger
Add 20 percent for 16 ga.\

It should not have auto ejectors, just extractors if date is right.

Hope this is some help.

Lots of Lefever shotguns. The company was bought out by Ithaca in the mid-20's, but the old man continued to make shotguns under the name of D.M. Lefever, Sons and Company. One reference I have puts prices anywhere between $100 and $8,000 depending on grade, condition, rarity, etc.

I'd suggest taking it to a reputable dealer and have it appraised.
