    I picked up a pretty nice Ithaca Century Trap 32" Fixed full choke for what I thought was a good price for quality of the gun. It looks like a gun that should cost thousands at first glance. Does anyone have one or have an opinion on them? Are there any spare parts i should track down to keep on hand? I have been told they shoot pretty flat but other than that I know very little. Either way it will look nice in the safe beside my MX2000 and TM1.

    I have owned several over the years. For the money they shot and functioned very well.

    Last year I sent my son's Century to Sycamore Hill Designs in Victor NY to restore the stock and Fore-end. They did an outstanding job and for a very reasonable price.

    Sycamore Hills did have replacement parts if needed.

    I had one that I bought new when they first came out and it was and still is a good gun for the money. I recently sold it to someone as a first/starter trap gun and they are doing well with it. The only down side is parts are not as readily available but they are available.

    I have owned several. I like shooting them, thet seem to fit. Quality is ok, not excellent but for a $600 gun they are a good buy. They do throw a good pattern and make a great handicap gun. Like the 870 and mod 12 they kick some

    Thanks for all the great info guys. Ill probably keep it for a 3rd string gun but I will bust it out a few times a year if I can hit with it.

    I just bought one and am very impressed. I think its a better gun than my BT99. Someone who wants a trap gun without spending a load of cash should give this a hard look.
