I'll be buying my first Ithaca in coming weeks and will be buying a rifled cantelever scope barrel for it as well. The money isn't much different between the Ithaca and Hastings barrels. Is anything gained by chosing one over the other? If the two are of equal quality, I'd buy the Ithaca in order to match bluing. I'd buy the Hastings if they were a significantly better choice. Any recommendations?? Thanks in advance! DL

I am sure there is nothing wrong with the Hastings barrel I just feel that if the prices is about the same I would go with the original Equipment Manufacturer.

hastings is considered by many to be the best shot and slug barrels available. but they are unlikely to be much better. i shoot an older model 37, and am still proud that this model was the first to have a barrel made specifically for slugs, so i would probably go with ithaca, but it probably won't make much difference which one you choose.

does hasting have additional barrel lengths that you would prefer over the ithaca line? and vice versa?
