ns do think that you have a Flues. Serial numbers match up. If it was a Lefever, it would certainly be marked as such.What condition are the bores in? do you have plans come shoot it? If you do, make sure that you have the chamber size checked by a experienced gunsmith.
thank you really much! ns don"t arrangement on shoot a shutgun indigenous 1915. Particularly with the condition of the barrels. Right now I arrangement on maintaining it in my safe till I decide to market it. The is insured <*>for a couple of hundred dollars. Is the the correct ballpark? I know it is nice banged up. Can you estimate an insurance/sale value...if I uncover the best collector.
If the shotgun is in an excellent shape, just due to the fact that it to be made in 1915 shouldn"t store you from shoot it. I shoot a Crass design from 1900, and also wife shoot a Stevens made before 1916. She additionally shoots an initial muzzleloader, circa 1850"s.But you room right worrying the value. That does look at a little rough, but restorable.
Thanks, BPskeeter.I evaluate your time and expertise. Right now I have no plans come fire a 96-year-old shotgun. I arrangement on maintaining it in storage till I decision to store it or market it. Ns will proceed to research study the family members history. If that is worth keeping, i will. Through the photos, carry out you have any type of idea what the is worth? Is the worth acquisition it come an appraiser or sending it come Ithaca because that appraisal? many thanks again,--Joey G.
Sorry about the twin post...I wasn"t certain the various other one took. Give thanks to you because that the e-mail reply.--JoeyG.

it is a Flues field grade model. If that is a 2 in the an initial number of your serial number, it was made in 1915. Ns would have this gun watched ( by a knowledgeable smith/person who knows dual barrels)before using. From friend pics, it shows up there is some major pitting on the exterior of the barrels. If there is pitting on the inside together well, I would not be firing it. Also, exactly how tight is the action. Even if the gun is it s okay to use, perform not shoot modern high pressure tons in it. This gun to be designed for the loads back in the day which used various powders than today. It probably has brief chambers together well. They have to be measured as well as barrel wall thickness. You have the right to buy low press vintage loads from polywad or RST. They are designed because that these old guns. Also, the frame on the Flues is vulnerable to cracked if using hefty loads. One additionally has come remember that the timber is almost 100 year old. Hefty loads will most likely crack the stock in the wrist area. These guns are vintage guns and are funny to shooting (if safe) and also should it is in treated through respect to their age. As much as value, these firearms aren"t worth that much. A pistol in the condition of yours would certainly not bring more than $150.00 wherein I am. In fact there is a reasonably nice original Flues 12 gauge for sale currently for $300.00.
