Ithaca NID 4E 20 Gauge SxS Shotgun
32" VENT RIB, ALL OPTIONS, FACTORY 99%
General Specs: Ithaca, Year 1929, 20 Gauge, 7lbs 4oz, Side by Side
Serial Number: 455798
According to Walt Snyder's book, "The Ithaca Gun Company; From the Beginning" there were only 45,000 Ithaca NID (New Ithaca Doubles) produced from 1926 to 1946. But when analyzing the production of Grade 4 and above guns, there were only 560 Grade 4 guns produced in all gauges, with about 150 or less in 20ga. guns. This gun, sn455798 built in 1929, is a FULLY OPTIONED TRAP CONFIGURED GUN, AND IS ONE OF A TINY HANDFUL OF GUNS SO PRODUCED. In near mint condition, with ULTRA RARE 32" vent rib barrels, beavertail forend, SST, ejectors, double ivory beads, factory pad, this is a true investment quality shotgun with CONDITION, RARITY, AND DESIRABLE AND RARE OPTIONS. And of course, it has that fully figured Ithaca walnut with the fancy flor-de-lis checkering that sets the Ithaca guns apart from all others. This is a great gun!
The gun weighs 7 1/4lbs. and balances nicely between the hands. This is not a lightweight field gun you would want to walk all day with, but a fantastic gun for ducks or doves, high volume pigeon or crows, and maybe the perfect sporting clays or trap gun. The weight will greatly reduce felt recoil and the long weight forward barrels will keep your swing smooth and moving; the perfect scenario for the above mentioned uses.
