1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    I have a plastic T&S shell catcher that say's XL 900 on the bottom rail. On the back on masking tape someone wrote XL 900 Ithaca. Call T&S and see if this one will fit the model 51. If it does PM me

    The shell catcher for a M51 Ithaca comes with a modified bolt handle to allow the bolt to close. The Ithaca 900 model will not work. ThEy are very scarce and not seen very often. I sold one a out 6 months ago.

    I found that I have a pair of unused Ithaca 51 shell catcher sets that include the modified bolt handle.

    Looks like one of the two that I have is considered SPF.

    I also found that I have one regular Remington Trap 1100 shell catcher that fits standard 12 and 20 frames.

    Hmmm,,, I always just removed the gas piston from my 51 Mag and the bolt never opened until I pulled it back. Then it latched open so I could drop my next shell into the chamber and hit the bolt release. Memories from simpler times,,,before I could afford a real trap gun with a hinge.

    One point to ponder when removing a piece of the gas mechanism is that then all of the gas is no longer confined for any length of time and is free to vent at full pressure into the mechanism through the barrel ports. Fouling is bound to be increased to some extent in that situation.

    At the same time, no gas is driving the mechanism and providing the delayed recoil impulse that all shooters recognize as the hallmark of the gas-operated self-loader vs. the recoil-driven self-loader or fixed breech firearm.

    The heavier the bolt/action slide etc. components of the mechanism, the more reaction of the gun to the gas delay recoil effect. While the bolt etc. is being driven rearward, the rest of the gun is driven slightly forward for a fraction of a second, thus delaying the impulse until the bolt components complete the first part of the stroke.
