Lefever E grade with in frame ejectors. The wood severely oil soaked like a railroad tie. Stock work to remove the heavy oil and grime and re-checker done by Buck Hamlin. Buck commented how much oil there was it was weeping from the grip cap. Fine Damascus barrels restored by Brad Bachelder. Case colors are original.

Beautiful gun! It would have been a real shame if oil munching bacteria or fungi destroyed that striking piece of wood. Nice save Stub Twist. I really like your gun photography skills too.

Great old girl!! I wish I could find one like that! They really put some fine sticks of wood on in those days. Lee Wink
