Add my thanks for posting this article. It's great to see Ithaca diversifying their line of products, and especially with a high quality American made O/U that's affordable for many folks.

Just heard from the company today. "The O/U that has been built is a prototype and we are hoping to start production at the beginning of the year with the release estimate of early 2010."

I had the opportunity to shoot the Phoenix during a recent plant visit. A wonderful shooting gun. low recoil because of internal design features and a easy handling. I will buy one and I am a sxs and pump shooter. I think they have a winner here!

Hello Don,
I did not ask that question but see no reason why not. The company has state of the art capabilities in both manufacturing and design.

I'm sure they "can" but will the bean counters "let" them?

It would be nice if they realized that were is a very large group of hunters and shooters who use the small gauges and have no want or need for another 12 gauge gun.

A better question is will the sub-gauge guns be built (if they are planned) on smaller frames?

If not I am not interested.

Hello, hello, is anyone out there from Ithaca listening?

Ithaca is comitted to doing things right!

Our testing of new O/U has been put thru its paces, changes were made and the production process has begun!

We will manufacture a 28 gauge O/U on its in frame, it will follow the 12 gauge pheonix!

Walt, thanks for spending the day with us, soon you can shot our other prototype

Dave:

That is news, right there. I am in the market for a 28 o/u, and will wait. Any guess as to time frame on the12 and 28?

Again, thanks for the info.

Last night I went to Bass Pro. I looked at all the new crop of semi autos and pump shotguns. What a sorry, sad, plastic and aluminum bunch of overpriced stuff!!! An $859 Ithaca Model 37 is cheap on today's market, considering you actually get a beautiful chrome moly steel and black walnut gun that's not got a cheap part inside or out.

Now, if Ithaca can make an over and under to rival the last really good American made over and under, the Remington Model 32,,,,I think there will be a market for it.

We seem to be hungry for quality products that are made here, and made right. Hats off to the new Ithaca gun company!!!

I saw one at the Cardinal Center this summer. It was built like a tank. Most people I talked to there about the gun agreed with me that it had too much bulk. I am curious what changes were done to the gun. Ithaca is putting out quality guns in Upper Sandusky. They also loaned some 37's to our PF shoot this summer for the kids to try out. I live close to the plant and hope they continue to do well.

Super X 1, the gun does have split bbls like the Model 32 Remington. If they can match the feel and balance of the 32, they will have a winner.

Doug

Ole Cowboy,

I could not agree more.
