ITHACA 16 GA SIDE x SIDE FLUES MODEL, CASED - EXCELLENT

ITHACA 16 GA SIDE x SIDE FLUES MODEL, CASED – EXCELLENT

I’ve always loved Ithaca’s Flues-grade SxSs. I don’t what it is about them, but every I see one, I get that urge to buy it — especially when I see one as nice as this.

The Flues was introduced in 1908 to 1926 when it was replaced by the NID.  Ithaca made a ton of them in that period — 223,000 — and it was certainly one of the most popular side-by-sides ever made in America.

Today, ones like this are great little grouse guns. Just be sure you shoot them with lightweight, low pressure shells.

ITHACA 16 GA SIDE x SIDE FLUES MODEL, CASED – EXCELLENT

ITHACA 16 GA SIDE x SIDE FLUES MODEL, CASED – EXCELLENTThis is a very unusual gun, in what I believe to be a factory fitted hard case from the period of manufacture – even though it does not have a factory label inside. This so called Flues Model Ithaca side by side is a 1&1/2 grade and so marked. Gun has 28 inch barrels with modified and full chokes, and plain extractors.  Barrels are like new in and out except for one small spot on the left barrel at breech which appears to be a rub mark from the case. Forearm is likewise like new.  Factory engraved receiver has just about all the case color with the exception of one small spot of pitting on top of the receiver to the right of the front of the toplever – hardly noticeable. Stock finish is original and excellent with slight bubbling – perhaps caused by heat in storage. Could easily be hand rubbed out to a wonderful finish – ditto for the forearm which has all the finish presently.  This gun and its wonderful case have definitely been in storage for many, many years and that is the reason it has most all of the original rust blue and vivid case colors. Even has the original Ithaca hard rubber buttplate.  Priced to sell quickly. Shipping will be $50.00 because of the weight of the hard case.  Price: $1,295
