Ithaca Grade 4E Single Barrel Trap Gun 12 Gauge
Serial #290153-T, 12 Ga. (2 3/4"), 32" VR barrel choked full with a fine, bright bore that has very mild freckling ahead of the forcing cone. The barrel retains about 95-97% original blue, with some silvering at the muzzle, as well as along some of the high edges. The Grade 4 engraved frame retains 60-70% of the original color case-hardening, still quite vivid on the top of the frame and the left flat, with the right side toning to mottled plum-gray, the carry point on the bottom of the frame has a warm plum-brown patina. The typical open flowing Ithaca foliate engraving is crisp with the right flat featuring the American Eagle, land derby-wearing trap shooter on the left. The straight grip American walnut buttstock rates very fine with scattered light handling marks and small blemishes in the origial varnish, and a very nice fleur-de-lis checkering pattern which has nice grain and figure. The shield-shaped monogram plate along the toeline is blank, and the length of pull to the period recoil pad is 14 1/2 inches with drops of 1 1/2' and 2 1/2 inches respectively. The semi-beavertail target style forearm rates very good and has four small cracks at the iron. The fit is a bit loose. The lock-up is still quite tight, with the lever at about dead center with the gun closed. There is a slight amount of lateral play, but the barrel remains on-face. The rib features dual ivory target beads and the gun is functional, with a robust ejector. This is a handsome Grade 4 Trap and rates very good plus condition overall.
