    I have a 16 Ga LeFever Nitro. It says Nirto Pro with a serial # 226828. Can't seem to find a value for it anywhere. Any info would be appreciated

    You have a Le Fever made by Ithaca. I'm not sure what a Nitro Pro is, but a Nitro Special Le Ferver runs from 600 if in excellent condition ( like new ) down to 200 in poor. Since you did not include any pictures or indications of condition, best I can do.l

    I believe, from having seen a number of Le Fever shotguns over the years, that the stamping actually used to read NITRO PROOF. I'm agreeing with RJay's valuations - except I've seen some in fairly poor condition sell at live auction for closer to 100 bucks.

    Thank you for your info. This gun is in excellent shape so were hoping to sell it for the $600.00

    The only way to see top money is a private sale and/or an auction site.If you sale to an gun shop, they will offer you approx 60 percent of value { it might set on their racks for a year and they still have to pay rent. If you assign it on commission you will have to pay the assignment fee. Good luck on which ever way you go.l
