Jack,

My opinion would be that it is definitely not an Ithaca forend, Iím starting to question if that gun originally had a beaver tail forend. Iíve never observed a forend that had those milled areas as yours.
Does the forend have the long screw going from the front of the forend that fastens to the forend metal?

Since it is a 5 with silver birds versus gold, is it in the 454,000 serial # range?

Thanks,
Stan

All I can say is, if it were mine I'd be shooting Doubles trap with it. Maybe a tad open but if you are quick enough.....

And trap shooters don't care what's been done to it.

The few NIDs I've been inside of had the serial number stamped in the head of the stock.

It appears that forearm was highly modified to move the Deeley latch quite a ways forward. A Normal No. 5E forearm --

The OP's forearm --

Odd No. 5 02a.jpg

It appears the base of the forearm iron is an ejector iron with the metal yoke that the screw at the back of the forearm wood goes into.

Odd No. 5 01.jpg

A normal extractor forearm --

I appreciate all of your input. I will be selling this gun for the family of a deceased friend of mine and your information helps me to get a handle on what to ask for it.
