    At our local dealer recently and they had a Ithaca 'Victory' single barrel trap gun. Was quite old but in decent shape. Never heard of this model, was it a bare bones version of thier 4E/5E? It look very much like an 'E' but with plain receiver, the forearm looks almost identical to the 4E. anyone know the history on this model. Thanks

    Mac,I shot one for two years and yes it was the bare bones model of the 4 and 5 E,it shot just as good as the fancy models with no engraving.The problem was keeping it shooting,I would shoot it on the week end and have it worked on all week to fix what broke.This guns serial # was over 400,000 but still broke pretty regularly.It shot soft and patterned great.

    While on the subject of Ithaca, recently shot with a friend who had pulled a 4E out of his safe after many years, it had a straight or 'English' type stock, i.e. no pistol grip. Most 4E's and 5E's I have seen had a pistol type grip, Was this straight stock common with early 4's and 5's?

    Dave, Not as common as the pistol grip but you do see a number of them around. The info I gave you came out of a book"The American Single Barrel Trap Gun" by Frank F. Conley. If you are interested in history of trap shooting and guns it is a Must Have.

    Dave, I have the books on Parker on my wish list. I already have the Ithaca, LC Smith, And Fox Gun Co. books in posession so I am a lucky guy. I got interested in these guns a couple of years ago. My goal is to have a single and double barrel TRAP gun in both by Parker,LC Smith,Ithaca, and Fox. so far I have a single in all and a double in Fox and Ithaca. I also shot my first 100 straight at registered this summer with a Ithaca 4e. Bill
