I am thinking about buying a Lefever 16 gauge Nitro special side x side. The owner doesn't know what the chokes are but says that each barrel is stamped with a number, #2 and #4. Does anyone know if these are Lefever choke identifications? If so, does anyone know how they would correlate to 'cylinder,' 'improved,' 'modified,' etc?

Thanks,
dmc

I am not familiar with those numbers, however, if you have access to a dial caliper, I have the sizes for various chokes in 16 ga. Cylinder=.617, skeet 1 =.613, improved cylinder=.611, skeet 2= .608, modified= .603, full= .592.

Choke markings for whatever it was choked when it left the factory should be stamped at the forward edge of each barrel flat, likely a 4 on the left flat and a 2 on the right flat.

Ithaca choke markings were as follows:

4 = Full Choke
3 = Improved Modified
2 = Modified
1 = Improved Cylinder
0 = Cylinder
S = Skeet

And those should correspond to your LeFever.
