Default Monster Ithaca 10 gauge

I was lucky enough to have picked up this waterfowler of the past. The condition of this gun is impressive, so I thought I would share some pictures with fellow gun lovers. It is a grade #2 Ithaca 10 gauge with 3" chambers and 32" Damascus barrels. The gun was so heavy it bottomed out may little digital scale, so I had to weigh it in pieces. The barrels weigh 7 pounds 9.6 ounces and the whole gun weighs 12 pounds 3 ounces. It's not what I would call a wand in the hands. The barrel wall thickness is truly impressive and the Damascus pattern is still relatively clear and vivid as is the case colors on the receiver. It was made in 1916 during the Flues era.

Default Chokes

The barrel flats are marked 4/4 or full/full. Although, I haven't actually measured them.

The pad gave out under the weight of that thing a long time ago.
