Description: General Specs: Ithaca, Year 1936, 28 Gauge, 5lbs 9oz, Chokes F/F, LOP 14", DAH 2 3/4", DAC 1 11/16"

Serial Number: 461390

The “New Ithaca Double” was the last rendition of side x side produced by the Ithaca Gun Co. Replacing the prolific Flues model in 1926 and produced through 1949, the NID (as it became known) was touted as Ithaca’s strongest action ever, second in strength and robustness only to the venerable Winchester Model 21. Relatively low production of 45,000 guns over the NID period forecasted the end of the golden years of the American side by side. Only 295 Field Grades were produced in 28ga. and most of these were very plain early guns produced before 1934. There was a noticeable upgrade in the aesthetics and quality of the NID Field Grade in 1934, including semi-fancy walnut with fluted combs, an ebony inlay in the forend, nicer checkering, elimination of the cocking indicators, and some line engraving and stippling on the top of the receiver. This gun, sn4461390 made in 1936, has these nicer features, and even better, was produced as a RARE ENGLISH STOCKED ITHACA NID, with less than 5% of all production being noted with the desirable straight-hand grip. Case color is factory 90%, barrrels 100% rust blue, mirror bores, great stock dimensions, excellent screws, no cracks or repairs. 5lbs. 9oz. and balanced on the hinge pin…AWESOME! As most collectors of American doubles know, the 28ga is very sought after and markedly more expensive than the larger bored guns, even more desirable than the .410 because of its versatility and lethality in the field. Remember, the 28ga. American double was only produced by Parker and Ithaca. For any serious shooter/collector, the small-bore Classic American Doubles are the pinnacle of desirability. The Ithaca NID is an awesome gun with brilliant mechanics, super-strong receiver, and its affordable! A Parker with these features and factory condition would cost well over $20,000! Ithaca NID small bore guns represent the very best value in today’s shooter/collector market with relatively low cost that will surely increase the most in value during the next 5 years. The mechanics of this little NID 28ga. are perfect inside and out, bores are mirrors, no splits or cracks anywhere, excellent screws, barrels are tight on breech face and hinge pin with lever well right of center. The 26” barrels are choked F/F and so marked on the barrel flats. Our onsite gunsmiths can alter the chokes to your preferences within 10 days of purchase. Today’s selection of 28ga. shells spans a wide range of target and upland game loads from RST Woodcock loads in #10 shot to Winchester Super X 1oz. loads for pheasants. They are even available in non-toxic for pheasants and waterfowl. What a great piece of American gun art that is just as fun to shoot today as it was 83 years ago. Thanks for looking!
