This disaster of a gun was the first thing I thought of when I saw the title to this post. I think it got up to 4K in the auction before they finally agreed to pull it.

Wish I could find an Elsie .410. I mean find it, like in a garage sale or an elderly relative's closet, not buy one off the internet!..Geo

Just remembered, I have no elderly relatives, I'm the oldest guy in the family. Well, that's a revolting development!

So I purchased a nice original but well used Lefever Nitro 410 from early 20's 203104. I believe the stock was cut to 13 1/2" so I added a silvers pad. My gun has the rounded pistol grip, it appears that later guns had better stock dimensions and a capped pistol grip. What did the early Ithaca catalogs or ads say about LOP?? I have turned my nose up at Lefever Nitro's but they really are solid guns but modestly (I won't say poorly because they were price sensitive entry level shotguns) finished. It's always fun to discover something new in vintage American made shotguns.

One of my guilty pleasures is a no-name Spanish .410 SxS that I picked up for little money. PG, splinter, DT, but 28” barrels and tight chokes. Took it out for doves in September with skeet loads and it killed 15 birds in short order and then jammed shut on the last bird. Repairs cost more than the gun would be worth to anyone else, but it’s a keeper for me.

The first Lefever Arms Co., Inc. flyer to include the .410-bore, states the length-of-pull for the .410-bore stocks was 13 1/2 inches --



The 1928 dated flyer still pictures the half-pistol grip stock. The 1929 dated Lefever poster shows the capped pistol grip on the Nitro Specials. The Oct. 1, 1930 poster is the last to mention the 13 1/2 inch length-of-pull stocks for the .410-bore. Between the 1934 and 1935 posters the drop-at-heel goes from 2 7/8 inch to 2 3/4 inch.
