The Ithaca Gun Co. produced the most iconic trap gun ever invented, the Knickerbocker or “Knick” Single Barrel Trap Gun. In production from 1922 until the last Knick was made in 1982, 5740 were produced. By 1935 the Knick had 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. If you scan the internet for Ithaca Single Barrel Trap (SBT) guns, they are fairly easy to find, and many of them will be considerably less money than this fine Ithaca SBT, sn404113made in 1955. There are reasons for this; some are less desirable Flues Model SBT's with serial numbers under 400,000. There are many Grade 4E guns, few Grade 5E guns. The Grade 5 guns had solid gold inlays, highly figured walnut, fancier checkering, and fancier engraving. Most have been shot A LOT and show much wear. Now make no mistake, there are few shotguns, modern or vintage, that can come to the traps with the patterns and shooting characteristics, including brute strength, that has been seen in the Ithaca known as the Knick. These are shooting machines! Most of the 5E Knicks you see were engraved by Bill McGraw and have a standardized pattern. The barrels are 32” full choke and retain 99% factory blue with perfect mirror bore, the receiver retains 90% factory case color, excellent screws, the mechanics are perfect including a RELEASE TRIGGER FOR THOSE WHO PREFER THAT SYSTEM (we can convert it to the standard pull trigger, just ask), the barrel is tight on the hinge pin and breach face…AND THE WOOD IS EXHIBITION WALNUT WITH FULL FLAME FEATHER CROTCH…STUNNING, with original factory stock dimensions. This gun has it all; high condition factory original metal finishes, gorgeous wood, heavy raised gold inlays, and 32” barrel choked the perfect Improved Modified. If you ever wanted to own the perfect example of a finely engraved Ithaca Knick SBT, this one is investment quality and sure to increase in value as you enjoy its use. Thanks for looking!
