Wanted to buy Ithaca single any condition for restoration (first attempt)
must be shootable and fairly priced.Will consider Safe queen only if its cheap thanks Also looking for major parts for same thanks again
I'm not saying they aren't out there, but trying to find a Ithaca SBT gun for cheap/fairly priced may take a while. If you are talking about either the Flues or Knick models, they are collectable and also shooters. Given you say that this is your first attempt at a restoration, take 2 things into consideration. First, is that a restoration by anyone other than a pro will kill it's value, as originality counts when something is a collectable. Second, these weren't mass produced guns, so if there's any mechanical wear it's going to require making/fitting of parts versus a remove & replace.
Good luck -- these are wonderful guns, and you'll be shooting a piece of history.
