The Ithaca Flues was never America’s sexiest shotgun. But was one of the country’s most popular. Introduced in 1908 and made until 1926, 223,000 of these side-by-side shotguns were built by Ithaca. Of those, the 20 gauge 4E is one of the hardest models to find (especially at this price).
An American gunsmith named Emil Flues came up with the Flues design and Ithaca turned it into a simple, reliable double available at a price point well below other quality shotguns available at the time.
