SRH
I use that Lawry’s Hawaiian stuff on chicken breast with water chestnuts and mushrooms .

That certainly is a nice example, John. It also has the "trap" forend that my other one has. It will look much like yours after the full refurbishing it's getting.

JFYI, there are many internal parts still available for them, probably because of the plethora of "Champions" still around. Internals are the same. One thing that usually needs attention on them is the top lever linkage.

Thanks for posting those pics.

Here's the story of my Special Trap, the one pictured in Frank Conley's book. One of my shooting buddies had a gun store some years ago, in the basement of an office building in Bethesda, Maryland. He sold everything up to and including Class lll and wheeled cannons, as well as being our source of loading components for shotguns. I was in the store one day and he said that he had taken in three guns, coated in shallow red rust. One was a high condition EE Krupp barrel Lefever, cut off at 20". Another was a wonderful Damascus Neumann in good condition. The last one was an Iver Johnson Special Trap. I asked the price for all three. He said "What is thirty nine times three?" I paid him $117.00 for the three guns. I didn't mind losing the Iver Johnson, but I sure would like that Lefever back. I sold it to a friend for $300 and he immediately turned it around for twice that.

Funny thing about sawed-off high-condition Lefevers... I have a set of Bernard barrels from Lefever No. 3026 or 6026 or 8026... (can't read that first digit) that were cut off at 21.75" and they are in otherwise beautiful condition inside and out.

Dean, in today's world, I would be happy to have a 20" EE grade Lefever, to go along with my 18" BH Parker World's Fair gun, and my 3" magnum 20" Model 21 Winchester.

It scares me to know there are people out there who have such disrespect for such works of art as to destroy them in making a home defense or cowboy action gun out of them.
