I’ve seen a lot of Flues shotguns, but this is the first one I’ve seen like this. It’s a Grade 2 Ithaca Flues. The seller claims it’s a Pigeon Gun.
All I can say is “Perhaps”. With the its 32″ barrels, Full X Full chokes, and high, straight-gripped stock, I can’t imagine what else its owner was going to do with it – shoot ducks and geese? Maybe.
Ithaca’s Flues model SxS shotguns were introduced in 1908 and made until 1926. In all, about 223,000 of them were built – making the Flues one of the most popular double barrel shotguns ever made in America.
