I'm familiar with that particular Ithaca, Mills, and saw it very recently. I'm happy it went to you.

From what I understand, the larger gauge Flues guns don't suffer the frame breakage that seems to plague the smaller gauges. Is the frame breakage in the small gauges a rumor or is it for real? The pictured ten is a wonderful gun.

I may be wrong but, I believe it was the earlier small gauge guns that had the cracking problem. Supposedly, after several of these came to light, Ithaca made the frames a little beefier. I have a 20 ga. with 28" twist barrels made in 1910 that is really pretty light. The underside of the barrels are stamped "Nitro Powder Proved". So far the only shells I've fired in it have been Gamebore 24 gram (less than 7/8 oz) black powder shells; it's been good so far.

Eightbore seems to be fishing for me to post my set of fall 1932 letters about the 1921 vintage Flues No. 4 10-gauge, 350977, with a frame cracked on both sides.

I have been known to hunt, but don't fish.

the only thing that is going to crack with the Ithaca NID Mag 10 is the shooters back

Ha! The head of the stock on mine has enough glass in it now to hopefully prove that correct. It was beaten up pretty badly
