Gun is sold pending receipt of funds. I have on consignment a wonderful Ithaca 5E in unbelievable condition. This gun was one of the last 5E's built in 1986 and it has been kept in wonderful condition. The nice thing about these late guns is that they put wonderful stock dimensions, beautiful wood, and modern barrel bores making for a great shooting trap gun. These later guns were engraved by Bill Mains. Normally I will go into great detail about the guns I'm listing, but in this case I'm going to let the pictures do the talking for me. The specifics on this gun are, barrel length is 32", bore is .744, choke measures .706 giving you a .038 constriction. Barrel has been Pro Ported. Stock dimensions are 1 3/8 X 1 3/8 X 14 5/8. Weight of the gun is 8 pounds 8 ounces. As you can see in the pictures the top lever is way to the right and this is a one owner gun. Owner said it has been fired very little and looking at the gun I have to agree. The only thing I can find wrong with the gun is a piece of the black spacer next to the pad has chipped out (shown in right side stock picture). This can easily be replaced for minimal cost. Other than that I would say the gun is in 98-99% condition in bluing, case coloring, and stock finish. You will be hard pressed to find a nicer 5E. Price of this wonderful gun was $4250 plus $50 shipping, now $3800 including shipping to your FFL. As always, there is a three day non-firing inspection on this gun. Contact me at [email protected] with any questions you might have on this gun.

That's A GREAT GUN...What Trap Shooting was All About Back in the Day. Very Sad
to see that someone Thought they could Improve something that was a Masterpiece
from the Start.
The person that comes up with the way to fix all those Improved gun barrels...
Will go down in History, Along with a Very Large Bankroll and the Thanks from many of US. Shoot well..Shoot Often, Bart

I'm going to try one more price on this beautiful gun and if it doesn't sell I'll send it back to the owner. Too nice of a gun to allow it to sell below $3800 so we'll set that as the bottom dollar price. Price does not include shipping to your FFL.
