The Model 49 was made in the by Ithaca. The follow-up Model 72 was made in Germany by Erma Werke and then the wood was put on by Ithaca. The Model 72 is a much better made rifle than the alloy cast Model 49 was. The gunsmith you mention is Les Hovencamp, just google Diamond Gunsmithing and you will reach his website. He does not list the serial numbers for the Model 49's or 72's though. Walt Snyder who wrote the 2 books on Ithaca guns was working on a 3rd book addressing the serial numbers for those models and also the Model 66 single shot shotgun among others, but to date that hasn't been completed.
