So I'm 20 years old and was handed this shotgun when I was younger. My dad gave it to me and I knew it was from his uncle. I knew it was a Lefever Nitro Special made by Ithaca Gun Co. I never really knew more than that the shells are hard to find in stores for a 16. My buddy texted me that Dicks had them in stock, long story short I killed my limit of squirrels on Monday.I couldn't help but wanting to know more. I broke it down Monday night and did some research. I found it was made in 1941, the reason for this post is just to see if this can be verified. I love hunting but I'm no gun expert.
