28" BARRELS ARE CHOKED MOD AND FULL. 2 3/4" CHAMBERS. EXCELLENT BORES. 14" LENGTH OF PULL WITH A 3" DROP. WEIGHS SEVEN POUNDS. SERIAL #353XXX. THIS IS A LATE MODEL, POST WW1 MADE FLUES GUN. IT HAS A HEAVIER RECEIVER AND BARRELS THAN DO THE PRE WAR MADE GUNS. ONE OF THE RESULTS OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR WAS THE DEVELOPMENT OF GUN POWDERS THAT GENERATED MUCH HIGHER PRESSURES. THE OLDER, PRE WAR FLUES GUNS ARE NICE AND LIGHT, BUT DID NOT HOLD UP WELL WHEN FIRED WITH THE NEWER, HIGHER PRESSURE SHELLS. AS A RESULT, ITHACA BEEFED UP THE FLUES IN ORDER TO COMPENSATE. AS THIS GUN IS NICE AND TIGHT, WITH NO CRACKS IN THE WOOD, IT APPEARS THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED. THIS EXAMPLE IS IN ABOUT 90% OVERALL EXCELLENT ORIGINAL CONDITION. ABOUT 60% CASE COLORS REMAIN. A NICE ONE FOR THE COLLECTOR. PLUS, YOU CAN SHOOT IT WITH MODERN SHELLS WITHOUT FEAR OF DAMAGE. SHIP TO FFL OR C&R.
