In the last decade or so, I've run into two of the Magnum-Framed NID 12-gauge 3-inch magnums, an optioned up and messed with No. 2E (500144) and a really clean Field Grade, and they were both bulged back of the chokes!?!

People often assume that steel did that, but, faulty reloads and big loads of 1s, 2s, and 3s were doing that before there was any suggestion of steel in shotgun ammunition.

It doesn't necessarily take big loads of big shot, either, as I had a Stevens M311 twenty gauge that bulged both barrels just behind the chokes. This happened in the late 60's so was well before steel shot was ever thought of. Only factory loads were used and no shot size larger than six, mostly 7 1/2s and 8s. They were not big bulges but were definitely noticeable to the naked eye.

I always wanted a NID mag 10 but the ones I see when I got the jingle where more than I wanted to spend for such a specialized hunting implement. I recently picked up a Spanish Zepher for $450. I've seen them on GB for around $900. After a close examination of it these guns are greatly under priced. The lock interior with it's double intersepting sears are like a watch. They would have to go for $3000 or more if they where built today. Mine patterns superbly with bismuth. I only got out once this year with no luck so hope to try her next year on Canadas.

I've waited for years to buy a Magnum NID but I want a 34 inch one which is about like rocking horse shit, mighty rare.

I had a chance at one a couple years ago but the chokes had been fooled with, probably to shoot steel, so I passed.

One of these days.....

Yup. Bob has passed on. I never had any truck with his children, so I have no idea where that gun might be now.

Some years ago, Steve Barnett had this 34-inch No. 1E Magnum-Twelve for sale --

Ten plus years ago, I very briefly I owned two Ithaca NID's.

Both with 32" barrels. One was a 10ga Mag, the other a 12ga w/ Krupp barrels.

I posted on this forum about them. The posts brought what, at the time, seemed like silly offers and I let them go. The 12ga went to New Ithaca Doubles(or whatever the name). As explained, they could not get 32" tubes. I was told it was upgraded to 4E status with only the frame and barrels being re-used. Done for the Sporting Clays shooter they sponsored.

Let me look, I may have a picture or two still on my computer.

Researcher,
would you happen to have pictures of those NID's with bulged barrels, I shoot my couple of NID's on a pretty regular basis and I would be pretty upset if I was to have this happen to one of mine? I know reason for bulge could be many things, but would you say overload would be your guess, steel shot, or a barrel obstruction?
Thanks,
Stan
