Cased Lefever Upland 12

Postby Silvers » Thu Feb 18, 2021 4:09 pm

I finally got around to taking pics of a recent score. G-Grade Syracuse Lefever in 12-gauge made about 1901 with 28" damascus tubes and excellent bores. She came cased with the old time loading tools and accessories. Tubes touch at the muzzle and original chokes are full tapered at 15 and 21 points = about Light Mod and Mod. Weight 6 -15 with 2-5/8 drop at heel and 14 LOP over the HRBP.

Rats! Too late for this past grouse season. :(

That's a beauty Frank. Pretty light too considering the damascus barrels.

A fine addition to any gun cabinet. Be careful....the Lefever bug is really hard to shake. No known cure.

Very nice. What are the chamber lengths on that beauty?

Mike, the chambers measure a hair short of 2-5/8". Also for two gents who asked separately about loads; my regular loading for 12 ga damascus and twist barrels that check out for wall thickness is the Rem Gun Club hull with CB 8100-12 wad (TGT-12 equivalent), 1 ounce of shot and pushed by IMR "PB" single-base powder. It’s about a 2-3/4 DE load. I was fortunate to have gotten a good supply of PB before it was discontinued. :)
