Ithaca Field Grade 10ga – SxS Fantastic and near mint. Fabulous all original gun with bold vivid original case color

Ithaca Field Grade 10ga – SxS Fantastic and near mint. Fabulous all original gun with bold vivid original case color: Easily the very best 10ga NID Model Field Grade Gun I have seen, this one made before the era of the 10ga Magnums in the 500k SN range.  This gun made with 32″ fluid steel barrels, checkered splinter forend, double triggers, extractors and safety. The case hardened frame is lightly border engraved.  Capped pistol grip buttstock is point pattern checkered through the wrist and terminates with the original lined lined hard rubber buttplate. Overall, the gun remains in near mint original condition.  Barrels retain nearly all of their original blue with only a very minor rub or two.  Receiver retains virtually all of its bold original case color as seen in the photos.  Stocks are sound and retain virtually all of their original finish with only very minor handling marks.  Bores are brilliant and shiny and mechanics are crisp.  This is a very near mint gun which has been scarcely fired.  Breech face shows almost no shell ring evidence. Price: $4,695

Good gun alert: a 12 gauge Ruger Stainless Steel O/U…

12 gauge Ruger Stainless Steel Double Barrel Over Under Shotgun

I’ve had a passion for double-barrels my whole life. Ruger’s Red Labels were the shotguns that lit that flame for me, and even though I’ve a lot of negative things about these Over-and-Unders, I’ve always liked them. I’ve toyed with the idea of buying one in 28-gauge, but never followed through with the whim.

Introduced in 1977, the Red Label was America’s first mass-made O/U. As a kid, I remember seeing them at the local gunshop. They were usually the finest shotgun there, and they were always behind the counter. I could only admire them with my eyes, but I could see enough to know that I wanted one.

I’m not sure when Ruger introduced their stainless-steel line of “All Weather” Red Labels (the actions on Red Labels were always stainless steel). With black synthetic stocks, the All Weather are as close to a Black Gun as I’ve ever seen in a double. That being said, they do look perfect for sea ducks, or for hunting from a blind in crappy, waterfowling weather.

Here’s more about this one from the seller:

Ruger Red Label, 12 Gauge, Stainless Game Gun: 28″ bbls, 3″ chambers, Ruger screw-in chokes, Synthetic stock, 14 1/4″ LOP, 8lbs, Selective single trigger. Excellent condition overall with original box. All Stainless Steel barrel and action with synthetic stock. Price: $1,349.99
