I'm holding a set of .410 barrels engraved "Ithaca Co Ithaca NY". The owner of the barrels believes that they are for an Ithaca "Flues"and should fit onto an Ithaca Flues 28 ga frame. As one can see, they do not. The barrels in the background of both photos are from my Ithaca 28 ga Flues. Note how different they are. The barrels in question are stamped E. Flues.
Does anyone have any knowledge of Ithaca Co as opposed to the "Ithaca Gun Co"? Mr Snyder? Anyone?

In the second photo the real Flues barrels are on the bottom.

I had hoped to purchase these to make up a 28/410 two barrel set on my grade 2 -28 gauge Ithaca Flues.

It also appears that the mystery gun must have been a crossbolted gun judging by the rib extension. A prototype perhaps? Does the owner of the barrels have the rest of the gun?


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

No, he has only the barrels and was selling them as "Flues" barrels, I believe because of the Flues stamp.

Emil was in Ithaca of course BUT I am not aware of him producing anything on his own at that time. His last gun was a .410 that he was working on at the time of his death in Michigan. I never found an "Ithaca Company" while doing my research. The marking on the barrels looks strange to me. The barrels may be associated with Emil but the rest looks suspicious IMO.

Those .410 barrels are made for a gun that has:

1 - a Purdey-style sliding underbolt
2 - side clips
3 - Greener-type crossbolt
4 - D&E type forend latch
4 - ejectors

I suspect that they're from a Spanish gun. They're certainly not for any American-made gun. The "Ithaca" markings appear to have been done by a diamond drag, the method employed by most trophy engraving shops.
The stippled rib matting also appears very un-American-made.

Yes these are fake
As soon as I saw the engraving that was a dead give away
I have seen things like this before done on guns

I know of someone who had made up a complete set of original parker
Marking dies made,all the original marks

Also there were 2 sets of English proof marking dies in the US
