    On a whim I bought an Ithaca Century trap gun with 32" barrel, and I now realize that I know nothing about them. Anyone still shooting them, where do you get parts, what gunsmiths specialize in them, what do you like or dislike about them, etc?
    Thank you.

    I thought they were great guns. Broke my first 100 straight with a 32 in. Century Trap.

    dju, just sold A 34" in 99% condition This Past Sunday.These are great guns and are nice looking and most people that shoot them shoot good scores. Maybe a little "light" but a C&H Mercury reducer in the stock tames them down.Most any good gunsmith can work on it IF-IF it ever needs it.You sir Have Bought a "GOOD" Gun. JMO Joe joe90t

    Sharpe's Gun Shop has parts. He is located in Canada. Someone should have his number.

    Dear joe90t

    If you don't mind---How much (approx) does a gun of that caliber go for?

    Thanks,

    Roger

    The Century 11 is the most desireable. It has up-dates over the
    original Century. I've bought a couple for about $500.00 each.
