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.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    That is what is referred as a TM-4, even though it is in reality a TM-1. The four bars on the side make it a TM-4. Imported by Ithaca. Very nice gun, and in great shape for its age. Around 1976 MFG.

    1976 is correct...it was made at the time of the Montreal Olympics.

    TM-4 ??? I've never seen that reference.

    The receiver should be stamped TM1.
    They did come with Perazzi OEM TYPE I choke tubes. If I'm not mistaken this was the last Ithaca import before Winchester began importing the Perazzi TM1.
    They had a tapered rib and competition style forearm and came with or without
    choke tubes. The tubed model was stamped TMS.

    The receiver is stamped TM-1, but they have been referred to as a TM-4. Here is one I restored. I believe there was a MT-6 that was the version of the O/U that had six bars on the receiver, from that same year. There was one for sale on here not to long ago.

    careful Joe, it was the MT-6 that was introduced in '76 Olympics. Not much use for an SBT at Olympic games!

    Oh Elmer...that's why we keep you around! See U 2 Nite...

    StlFlyn...you've got one of my all time favorite SBTs! Nice job on the restoration too!

    Okay...question for both of YOUZ...did all these "MT-4s" have zebra stripes?

    The TM1 with the striped receiver and choke tubes were an Ithaca import. The red Test Certificate and Gurantee card that came with my gun lists the model as TMS and lists the manufacture date as April 7, 1978.

    The frame is stamped TM1. Hope this helps with the discussion.

    Richard,

    Thanks for the update...my TMS was a Winchester import and the frame is
    stamped TMS. I believe your Ithaca "TM-4" was one of the last Ithaca import
    Perazzis before the switch to Winchester.

    Still one of my all time favorite SBTs!

    cl3,

    Comp 4...that's another new one on me. Since you have the 1975 catalogue maybe you can answer my previous question about this series...

    I am of the impression that the receivers were available with "silver" stripes or all blue...I've seen them both ways, although some were obviously re-reblued, I've been told that the silver stripes were an option.

    Nick,

    I think you're right...but I've had people insist otherwise.

    Stripes were usually left in the "white".........but who knows with P. They made exceptions to their catalog photos.

    Stl Flyn started another thread with great pictures of his TM-4 at the same reduced price...I am surprised it's still available, but I doubt it will survive another price cut. Still one of my favorite SBTs.
