First I'd like to say hello to everybody. I'm new to this site. I am an avid gun lover, but my heart belongs to the shotgun. About sixteen years ago I traded a ruger 10/22 rifle for a Ithaca shotgun from a friend (one who's heart belonged to the rifle). It was a 12 ***** autoloader that had a recoiling vent rib barrel, it had a hunting scene on the sides of the action of a dog flushing a pheasant inlaid with gold. I've been searching the internet trying to find out what model it was in hopes of tracking down one in good shape. It may have been a model 51 featherlight but I have been unable to find a picture of one that looked like mine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
