White Smoke Double Rifle by Sherman Bell Page 80
The effect of black powder fouling on accuracy, that I dreaded
turned out to be a nonexistent problem. A priming charge of SR 4759 smokeless powder has
kept bore fouling to a minimum. I routinely fire a box of 20 shells through the rifle
before stopping to clean the barrels. I have not experienced a reduction in accuracy from
bore fouling. Twenty shots before cleaning is a practical maximum, for my hunting rifle.
If I haven't bagged game after a full box of these boomers, I will retire for the day,
clean the rifle, and set out fresh in the morning!

That can only be answered by Messrs. R.C. Fay and G.E. Humphreys who patented this action
on October 30, 1894. There is somewhat of a remarkable similarity to Westley Richards. If
you have my book Remington Double Shotguns, you will see an 1894, Grade C, that for
whatever reason, was converted by Westely Richards and Company to accept their forend.
Changes had to be made within the action to accept their cocking levers and auto safety.
Everything else is Remington, and Westely Richards kept the "ordnance" steel
barrels on the gun, opening the chambers to three inches; barrels and frame were proved in
A Kaleidoscope For the Ithaca Collector by Walter C. Snyder Page 196
Collecting Ithaca Gun Company "things" is somewhat
like peering into a kaleidoscope; each turn presents a new and exciting scene. There is a
scene of varied engraving patterns; the scene of beautiful colors from the Case-hardening
process; the scene of delicate checkering panels; the scene of Damascus barrels; the scene
of finely illustrated catalogues. each turn delights the senses.
