Welcome to my website on Lefever Arms. I’m Bob Noble and I discovered the beauty of Lefevers about 20 years ago. I’ve collected a number of other doubles but my first love has always been for Uncle Dans creations. I do like all of the different styles and types of Lefever Arms guns. But my collector interests have been focused on Dan’s guns from the very start up to the time he left the Lefever Arms Co. My goal with this website is to share the Lefever name with others.

A: If the serial number of your gun is above , an interchangeable barrel made in Upper Sandusky will fit your gun, but will likely need to be custom fit by one of our gunsmiths. A: The quickest and easiest fix to this problem is a good thorough cleaning inside the receiver. Illustrated instructions for disassembly and cleaning of the M37 are included in our owners manual.
For years I have been saving Lefever serial numbers. They were built by Ithaca after Ithaca closed down Lefever Arms and I don’t have any interest in them.
Reserved for A Grades. Lefever guns numbered under Company once located in Syracuse, NY. This company went out of business. WW II. The special serial number block for the Model 37R was discontinued after Special serial number blocks were discontinued during for the models 37S and 37T. Unique serial number sequences were established for special edition and commemorative Model 37 and Model 87 guns. Much of the data presented for the Model 37 guns came from microfilm copies of Ithaca shipping records on file at the National Tracing Offices of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and from microfiche copies of invoices from the era that were found at the Ithaca factory.
The Model 87 data came from the serial number records of the Ithaca Acquisition Corporation. LAPD Model Bicentennial Model Centennial Models.
The Ithaca 37 is one of the oldest shotguns still in production. Produced in many calibers and modifications, most popular are 12 gauge Homeland Security model with fixed stock, and Stakeout model with pistol grip, and shortened barrel. Ithaca 37 shotguns feature a patented bottom-ejection Browning system, which protects against ingestion of elements of nature, such as dirt, debris, snow etc.
Reloading occurs through the same ejection port.

I just bought two 12ga S X S and would like to check the numbers to see what they are. One has some light engraving on it and the other does not have any. The late Walter Snyder included a listing of Ithaca double guns through in his book “The Ithaca Gun Company — from the beginning” but made no reference to the SKB doubles sold under the Ithaca name many years after Ithaca ceased double gun production. I have no idea where you could find the info you seek. Are you sure you have SKB guns and not original Ithacas?
They have the stocks just like the SKBs. The older Ithacas had a straight line on the stock where the fit the action I think. I know bad thing for me to do. I think one is a and the other is a I don’t believe the serial numbers identify the models.
