Lefevers aren't sidelocks. They are a sideplated boxlock.

American made?? I'll bet you're waiting on a Baker......

My brother-in-law has a AJ Aubrey 12 gauge with 30" barrels he inherited from his grandfather.  His is in great shape.

I think this one has 2 3/4 chambers but I will check it when it gets here.  

These are really great guns... and I should say, built on a scaled 16 ga frame.....  a bit of an LC clone if you will...

I am really looking forward to "playing" with this gun.  The 30" barrels should make it interesting.  It certainly has a bit more weight than my 5.5lb Sauer but I think that will be good.

It is stocked in somewhat old dimensions with a good bit of drop but I think it can be bent up enough to fix it.  

I am actually considering very strongly a complete restock on this gun.  Taking it to a straight stock and "correcting" drop etc.  The gun is going to weigh close to 7lbs as is.

Sounds great, I have one 16 SxS with 30" barrels and it is a Western Arms Long Range by Ithaca.  Mine's choked F&F and great duck gun with bismuth and Kent Matrix.  Am sure you will have many days enjoyment with it, sure would like to find one like yours.
