    I have a 1916 Ithaca 4E that I am looking for information on, in perticular, the forend has a white or ivory inlay where as, all of the early 4Es that I have seen have a ebony inlay. Does anyone know if there is any significance to this or was it specific to the 1916? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks, Larry

    Larry, Pictures would help. I have not seen this mentioned in any books. The factory would do whatever the customer wanted in that era also. Bill

    That inlay looks factory original. Don't mess with it. Nash Buckingham liked ivory inlays. It might be his gun. Check with Walt Snyder.

    By the way, my latest project gun will include an ivory inlay at the forend tip. Do the Walt Snyder contact to provenance your gun. He reads and posts the Ithaca area of shotgunworld.com

    That White One Glows in the dark so you can find it in the gun rack if the lights go out.

    No I think it could be Ivory inletted, but I have only seen the Black ones.
