    That is a beautiful gun.

    These have an interesting feature. The engraving is not the same on all of them. Some show a right hand shooter and some show a left hand shooter. One day I hope to put my hands on one with the lefty pictured on there.

    Good thing I got to it before the Virginia Creeper covered it completely!

    I just picked up two of these today. One is a two-barrel set and the other one looks to be maybe a grade higher than the first one. Where can I get dates of manufacture and details on which grade they are?

    I will only be keeping the higher-grade gun and sell the two barrel set gun. Both guns came in fitted leather cases, and both have release triggers.

    The red Ithaca sunburst is very handsome, and would look great, but it was not yet available in 1927.

    Here is the sunburst that Tron fitted to my Model 37:

    I was thinking of a Hawkins Model 35 (heart shaped cut outs) available from Galazan

    Here are a few pic's of the 5 E that just came to live at our house. This one came out of the factory in 1928

    Jim R,

    Would you please get a closer pic of the left side of the receiver on the 4E? If you're interested in selling, I may be interested in it if the engraving is correct.

    Are you the sinister fellow looking everywhere for a left handed trapshooter on a 4e?

    The 4E is headed out in a couple of weeks to be completly refinished. It is a right handed shooter on it and it is signed by McGraw. I wasn't going to keep it but a two barrel set is just too hard to pass up. It should be gone for about 2 months when it comes back I will post some pictures
