Description: Ithaca 4E Single Barrel Trap- KNICK, MCGRAW SIGNED, AS NEW

The Ithaca Gun Co. produced the most iconic trap gun ever invented, the Knickerbocker or NID Single Barrel Trap Gun. In production from 1922 until the last Knick was made in 1982, 5740 were produced. By 1935 the Knick in the hands of able shooters won the Grand American Handicap six times, by 1976 was responsible for over 25% of the total wins at the Grand American, and has been the most well known single barrel trap gun in American history. Bill McGraw was the famous master engraver employed by Ithaca from 1907 until he retired in 1969 and was responsible for most of the high end engraving. He did not sign much of his work, but this one he did. To own a signed version of the famous “KNICK” done by McGraw is a must for the Ithaca collector or as a representation of Ithaca in any American shotgun collection.

In as new condition and made in 1961, the gun is still a dominant shooter for competitive trap. IT IS ONE OF 6 ITHACA SBT’S FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTOR IN ITHACA, N.Y.. LOOK ON THIS WEBSITE FOR THE OTHER 5 AND BUY THE WHOLE COLLECTION! These are all investment quality guns in as new or unfired condition. This 4E is near new, still “kicks tail” on the trap line, and will appreciate as you enjoy its use. THIS AND THE OTHERS WILL BE SOLD INDIVIDUALLY OR AS A GROUP, WHATEVER OCCURS FIRST. LAYAWAY TERMS ARE AVAILABLE.
