The Lefever Arms Collector’s Association

The Lefever Arms Collector’s Association is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation incorporated in North Carolina dedicated to the Study, Collection, and Preservation of Lefever Firearms. Membership is $35 per year and includes at least 6 high quality color newsletters per year (mid-year applications will be prorated for the remainder of the year) and access to previously issued newsletters via this website.  There is an annual business meeting at the Antique Gunshow in Las Vegas in January of each year. Any LACA member is welcome to attend.

The Lefever Arms Collectors Association is governed by a seven member Board of Directors. The Board of Directors are:

Bob Decker- Executive Director

Ken Snyder- Secretary

Jason Marks- Treasurer

Bob Noble- Director

Daryl Hallquist- Director

Terry Buffum- Director

Shane Lee- Director

In addition to the January Las Vegas Antique Arms Show the LACA strives to make a presence at the Spring Southern Side by Side in Sanford, NC and at the Northeast Side by Side in Friendsville, PA each year. Other venues may be attended based on opportunity.

Members who are hosting a table at a regional gun show can request a Gun Show Kit which will include a 17 X 11 poster, some LACA business cards, and several issues of past newletters for promotional purposes. Just E-mail the LACA at

Members can advertise any Lefever items for sale in the newsletter at no cost.

Members are encouraged to write about and submit photos of any subject of interest to Lefever collectors to be published in the newsletter. Members are also privileged to the Newsletter Archives page which is kept under the Resources menu. These newsletters started in 1993 and contain a wealth of information.


The LACA manages the Lefever Forum on the web. The goal of the forum is to allow an on-line discussion of Lefever related subjects in a setting more conducive to back and forth conversation than is the newsletter. The forum is free to any who wish to register. Registration must be under one’s first and last name. We firmly believe that this reduces rude or inappropriate comments from those who might otherwise abuse the forum through anonymity.

The LACA does not maintain a serial number list. However, there was one published by the LACA and is included on this website under the Newsletter Archives page originally put together by Roy Eckrose. However, that list is out of date and there may be some errors. There are LACA members who, through their own efforts, have maintained serial number lists. There has been a lot of discussion about these lists. It is the opinion of the LACA that publishing these lists may lead to more harm than good. Counterfeiting of high grade Lefevers is unfortunately out there. Publishing lists of known serial numbers allows them to use unaccounted for numbers to produce upgraded or faked guns. However, those who keep the lists are generally more than happy to share what they know about a specific gun. If there is a question, or there is a specific gun you would like researched as to authenticity, email the RP and we will do what we can to find an answer for you.
