The New Ithaca Double was made from 1926 to 1948, and was the last double gun manufactured by the factory. External cocking indicators were standard until 1934, when they were eliminated from the design. Selective and non-selective single triggers and ejectors were optional at additional cost. Lke most collectible shotguns, the smaller guages command a price premium (with the exception of the Magnum 10 of which only 850 were made). It was produced in 8 different grades. This gun deserves the attention of an expert appraiser, as some grades in excellent condition could put your kid through college.

You would need to include the model number or name of your Ithaca firearm,along with the serial number to get the correct answer.

If it doesn't say Lefever somewhere on the gun, I don't think you have a Lefever.

I have no idea what you mean. Every Remington shotgun ever made was designated as a shotgun, and had a model name or number. If you clarify your question, maybe someone can help.

I have no records of a Browning 16ga shotgun having a A prefix to the serial number.Please check and list the model number(or name model) of your shotgun in your next post.

The model will be stamped on the barrel right after the Winchester name.

The Ithaca Gun Co manufactured the Lefever single barrel shotguns under the Lefever Arms Co. name after it acquired the company in 1916. This model was made between 1927 and 1942; the serial number indicates yours was made in 1928.

No way of knowing without you providing the model number/name of the shotgun and the serial number that goes with it.

The Ithaca model 37 has been manufactured pretty much unchanged since 1937, so you be the judge if it's a good gun. The name was changed to model 87 in 1987 but changed back to model 37 around the year 2000. I see no listing for "Featherweight" although there is a "Featherlight".

Triplet Steel was a mark used by Syracuse Arms and Western Arms Corp was a trade name used by Ithaca about 1928-1945. I can't remember all the history right now, but somewhere Syracuse became a part of Ithaca, so I'd say your shotgun was probably made around 1928-30. It's purpose was most likely for hunting but possibly for trap shooting.

Impossible to answer without the name of the maker and serial number.

It is the model name of the first Over/under shotgun that Browning made. "Superposed" in the dictionary means "one on top or over another".

If we had a manufacturer's name and model name or number we might be able to answer you.

YEAR OF MANUFACTURE OF A ITHACA 49 RIFLEThe Ithaca Model 49 Single Shot Lever Action rifle was marketed from 1961 to 1978. I have a December 1961 "Guns" Magazine that has a new products section and one item listed as a new product, "Just in time for Christmas," was the Ithaca Model 49 selling for $19.95 and, of course, aimed at the boy's market. I have two Ithaca 49s that I just bought two days ago. They are serial numbered 246xxx and 277xxx (following standard practice the last digits of the serial numbers are kept secret to prevent any scams)so I am of the opinion that one in the 400,000 serial number range is a later one. I have found a person on the internet who is a gunsmith in Ithaca, New York and was a gunsmith for the Ithaca Gun Company for 28 years and advertises to help with telling you the year your Ithaca gun was made if you send him the model and serial number of the Ithaca Gun. I can't think of his web site name but if you use the key words "Ithaca Gun Repair" it will probably come up. Coincidentally, I just emailed him with my serial numbers yesterday, March 12, so I have not heard from him yet. I also want to add that his emphasis is on the Ithaca Shotguns, for which they are somewhat famous, so I am not sure if he has information on the Ithaca 49 rifle. I will also add that the Ithaca 49 was made in Germany by Erma Werke and the wood stock and forearm were reportedly put on in the USA. I guess that is why Ithaca could put on the gun, "Made in USA." Note that the frame of the Model 49 is made of anodized aluminum, not blued steel, so if you think it looks different that is the reason. It appears the lever and the front sight are also aluminum. In my opinion the Model 49 is a wonderful little gun. Moe Wadle 3-13-06 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.

I purchased the field maintenance instructions for Model 37 and 87 pump action shotguns on Ebay. It is a complete guide to disassenbling and reassembling these model guns. It was inexpensive and very clear and detailed. You need a book by Walt Snyder that covers the M37 in GREAT detail including serial numbers. Google his name with "37" or go to gunshop.com
