Yes, 20 gauge is the second most common gauge for shotguns in the last few decades.
The shotguns were manufactured by Ithaca from 1921 through 1947. Yours was manufactured in 1928.
KING NITRO Tradename used by Shapleigh Hardware Company of St. Louis, Missouri on shotguns made by Crescent Fire Arms Company and J. Stevens Arms Company
Ithaca made 10 gauge shotguns.
the year this gun was made was 1913. the ds grade is worth $250.00 poor to $1250.00 exe
I can say that Browning started having shotguns made in 16 gauge in the year 1909.Winchester started having the model 12 shotguns made in 16 gauge in the year 1914.so I would surmise that the time frame of 1909-1915 would be the correct time frame for the introduction of the 16 gauge shotguns.
Remington for one.
Yes, they were made.
12 has a bigger bore.
