The 16's are nice guns. My very first shotgun was an A H Fox in
16g. Had that nice gun stolen when I was in college and have been crying about it for 40 years.
Don't know why 16's are not more popular in this country.

Ithaca turned out by two or three times more guns than either Parker, Fox, or LC Smith. I would expect to see more cracked Ithaca actions.

I especially like the engraving, wood, and checkering on the early Grade 4 Flues.

Best,

Mike



I am glad to be here.

What we call the "breech face" was aptly named by the British "the breakoff"--for a very good reason!

If you take a look at what Steve Lamboy was doing at Ithaca Classic Doubles when that operation closed its doors, you'll see some mighty fine looking (and well-made) guns. That NID design looks awfully good in those clothes.

Say it aint so joE! Chain damascus on the grade 4 above does catch the eye. Mine's got a swamped rib and little ramps fore and aft on fluid steel barrels like a Frenchie Charlin or Manufrance. (And that's Hollenbeck, Pete.
