I don't know if this will help because my gun is a Flues. On the flues with the bottom of the receiver off. I layed the receiver upside down on my bench. I put the spring in and the hammer on top of it. I then cut a small peice of wood the width of the hammer that was about 1 inch high off of the top of the hammer. Then I positioned the receiver right at the edge of the bench so I could use a 6 ingh c clamp positioning the one side under the receiver on the underside of the bench. And the othe side on the small peice of wood placed on top of the hammer. I was able to easily compress the spring by tightening the c clamp until I had the holes lined up to insert the pin. I hope I have helped you. But as I said I have a Flues not an NID. Good luck. Glen.

With the serial number that you have supplied,it sounds as if you have a N.I.D.model Ithaca double barrel shotgun made in either 1928,or 1929.The Initials N.I.D.stand for the words New Ithaca double While you have not provided a detailed description of the shotguns overall condition,including the amount of original finish remaining.I can say that the price range is between 315-825 dollars,depending on the gauge and grade of the shotgun in question.If you choose to repost your question with the grade and correct gauge of your shotgun along with the choice of triggers supplied,and if the barrels are plain or vent rib,I could more define the value for you.

Assuming it is the Stoeger import, made in Spain, it would sell in the $300 range.

That particular gun was made in 1937. The Ithaca Western Long Range was made from 1929 to the start of WW II. I cannot help with the exact date.
