Ithaca Grade 4E 16 Gauge SxS Shotgun
FLUES, 97% FACTORY CASE COLOR, NICE!
General Specs: Ithaca Flues, Year 1920, 16 Gauge, 7lbs 4oz, Side by Side
Serial Number: 330025
The Ithaca Gun Co. sold more double shotguns than any other American maker of its time, and by a very long margin. The prices, grade for grade, were competitive with the other makers, i.e. Parker, L.C. Smith, Lefever, A.H. Fox, but they sold soooo many more guns. The buying public found Ithaca a better gun. My own observation is that, grade for grade, Ithaca doubles had better wood, far better checkering, often superior engraving, and equal mechanics and handling characteristics than all of the other makers. In today’s world of vintage American doubles, Ithaca is an undervalued, under-appreciated shotgun.
This gun, sn330025 built in 1920 is a great example, with 97% vivid factory case color, 92% factory barrel blue, 98% factory trigger guard blue, and near new highly figured factory finished wood with beautiful flor-de-lis checkering. This is a HIGH CONDITION FACTORY ORIGINAL GUN. Even the jewelling at the breech face is still evident. The only thing that seems to be altered since the gun left the factory are the chokes, as the gun is stamped "4 & 4" which would indicate F/F chokes. The 28" barrels are presently choked IC/M (.007/.017) with their double ivory beads and mirror bores. This is a gun for heavy work, with minimum wall thickness of 36 thousandths and weighing 7 1/4lbs. What a great sporting clays gun or pheasant gun for heavy loads! Engraved by the famous Joseph Loy, with his trademark signature, the gun is near new in all ways, including being tight on breech face and hinge pin like a new gun. This is a single trigger gun that still has the ornate factory butt plate and great stock dimensions. A great investment in an American treasure.
