IMHO, it will be a while, there haven't been any imported here since the original facility in Ithaca, NY closed down.SKB 1900 said:Even better,when they exporting them,put me down for a new one....
From "Ithaca plans a 28 gauge!" (I have added the bolding to emphasize the dates), reports by posters on telephone conversations;ithacanut said:I don't recall any "empty" promises from the new company. Maybe I have missed something. I think you will hear from the new compqny when they have product in the warehouse.
Since the post was May 2006, I assume the 2nd Aug. reference was Aug. 2006.Haiwee said:Spoke with Matt at the factory today (btw, these guys are real helpfull) to get in line for one of the new 16 gauge guns, and he told me of their plans to produce a 28 gauge Model 37 on a proportional frame. He says they hope to have it out by November, but that it may have to be a 2007 introduction. So now I'm buying two new Ithacas!
He also told me the new 16's and 20's should be ready by August, so I should have mine in time for dove season. Can't wait!
Skookumchuk said:Yes - I spoke with him also and was told the same just two days ago. A English-stocked 28 in time for fall would be just the ticket.
They are also going to be doing custom wood. I've got a request in for a 16 gauge stock with left hand cast-on and a sunburst pad.
There are other things in development also - some of the traditional stuff like the Knickerbocker trap and maybe an entirely new auto.
These guys are a very pleasant change, quick to respond to questions and great to deal with, BTW.
True, but but people remember the promises and lack of delivery over the past 1 1/2 years.ithacanut said:I am referring to the 'new' or current owners.
