At clay targets Ithaca dominated the single barrel trap gun market for decades, but one doesn't find Ithaca doubles making any showing at all at the Grand American Handicaps at live birds from 1893 to 1902. In 1901 even a Baltimore Arms Co. double was one of the guns to go 25 straight, but Ithaca don't appear at all at the fore.

I will have a pic of my new 16ga 37 ordered with AAA wood and multi barrel's including a double stacked rib trap barrel. The only one I have ever seen. Way cool. I pick up the Trap barrel later today.

Not one of the old ones but I do shoot one of the new 37 trap guns. I ordered mine with the AAA wood, the 70/30 and 60/40 ribs. I did so for nostalgia as I used my uncles 37T for my first trap shoot in 1955. I shoot the same scores as I do with my O/U and SBT. I added an adjustable comb and butt plate to get the fit I needed.

I seem to shoot my Ithaca 4e and 5e the best of any of my trap guns. I think they are amazing in the quality and finish of each gun.

Just picked up the barrel. Just so you know. the gun is new to me and dang near new unfired. It is a King Ferry produced gun special ordered with the AAA wood and barrel's. You won't find many 16's like this and this may be one of the only two barrel guns ever ordered in 16 gauge.

I deleted my Photobucket account. IMO, pretty sad deal when a site this big has no photo host.

Very nice flues indeed. Do you shoot trap with it? I've heard that you shouldn't use modern pressure loads in the flues doubles. Is the same true for the sbt?

I noticed the locking system; looks great. is the same one implemented into the Phoenix?

Jiganator, I am still waiting to see this 16ga Trap. Please keep us posted

Cedar, the Phoenix is not a Flues derived design. The Knickerbocker, over 400,000 serial number, is the source of the Phoenix design as well as the design of the new single barrel trap.

I shoot my Victory Grade Knick a little but not much as I don't want to get any serious wear on it due to it's pristine condition.(see pix on Ithaca picture thread #8). Mostly I use it in "vintager" shoots as well as my doubles in trap and field configurations. I know I can't hurt it but one doesn't necessarily drive their "Sunday" car all week either. Ah the crankiness of old age!! Lee. :D
