I have an "old" Ithaca Remington shotgun with the letters KK on the barrel and a serial # on the butt of the gun. How would I go about identifying it and getting an estimated value? (p.s. as you can probably tell, I don't know much about guns) Thanks!

Ithaca Remington? I've never heard of a joint venture between these two companies..

Thank you for answering :D

That is what the dealer told my husband when he bought it? (@1985) - the gun was made just before Ithaca/Remington split. He thinks it was made in the 60's.

Is it the serial # or the letters on the barrel that are used to id? The emblem on the butt says "Remington UMC" and letters "KN" "FULL" on the left side of the barrel and a circled REP on the right side of the barrel.

Thanks!

The only Ithaca Remington connection I know of is : Remington Arms purchased certain assets of the former Ithaca Gun Company, including their 10 gauge autoloader. They re-engineered the gun and introduced the SP-10 to the Remington product line in 1989

but to further the ID process, is the gun a pump, semi-auto, over /under , single shot or what?

What ***** is it?

no other writing on it?

It's a slide, 12 *****, has an opening on bottom to put in (approx 4) slugs and a lock on side that closes. In trying to ID it, I read somewhere that the letters on the side would represent the year and month of manufacture. Is that true? Thanks again!

Yes that is true May of 66 although 22 is a possibility since the N repeated itself.

odds are it's an 870

I went to the Remington website and it looks like the newer 870s. Thanks for all of your help!
