Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Thanks Walt; beautiful. So why does Ithaca sometimes use those shocked sisty uglers (apologies to Archie Campbell)?

Walt, can you tell me how this search turned out? Did you interview the Grandson?

Edh, Sorry to say I wasn't able to meet with him. I dropped the ball on this subject and will see if I can pick it back up. Thanks for reminding me.

And Edh, thanks for resurrecting the thread. I missed it on its first run and have enjoyed reading through the thoughts/comments while the snow flies outside. (And I might add, the comments on GlacierJohn’s upland gun thread as well.). They’ve both certainly given me some joy as I think back over my Ithaca SXS’s.

And, Walt, good to see you on board again. You’re missed. Hope you’re doing well.

I've owned exactly one Flues double a few years ago (a 20) and it left me wanting to know more about them. A 1 1/2 grade gun, it was petite and lovely and...it had aged quite gracefully. It was a bit short for me (and it also had more drop than I normally prefer) but I shot it fairly well. I got tendered in a deal for another gun but I've never forgotten it.

I have but one Flues, a 20 gauge, sweet shooting gun with a leather comb added.
I do shoot 2 1/2 inch ammo in this one.

Not the most stylish to some but they are good basic guns that you can feed fairly stiff loads in without worry about missing fingers or split wood or barrels. Find a graded gun and they are a real nice looking gun for the money.

I know this is an old thread, but this post interest me. I’m one of those guys that when I do a google search to dream about a new gun, I look for Foxes, LC’s, Parker’s and Levefer, but never Ithaca. I now realize I have a kind of built in prejudice against them and I don’t know why.
