10-19-2010, 08:42 PM
just came across this. i love this company but only making pumps really limits the consumer. The picture of the gun from the show looks fantastic in my opinion. nice article, they really seemed to enjoy the gun. Anyone got more info on this gun or have experience with it?
i would love to see an ithaca autoloader with the classic black reciever and no nonsense style.....

I'm typically a bigger fan of pumps because they are more in my price range right now, but this may sway me to purchase an O/U.

Had Ithica autoloaders Model 51 in a 20 and 12 at one time and they were not good guns.

If I recall correctly those guns were heavy--8 pounds or more. Maybe a nice gun for clay pigeons--but not something I would think of toting into the field with me.

what is the average weight of a 12 gauge over and under?

i sure like to carry a light gun. But, I like to shoot a heavy gun! The numbers I have seen on the Ithaca Phoenix are in the 7.5 to 8.5 pound range. I suspect balance is more of an issue in all guns, as opposed to actual weight. My old Parker's and L.C Smith's 12's average between 8 and 9 pounds, but I have walked a lot of miles and never felt like leaving them behind! Balance is the key. On the other hand the 20's in Ithaca flues, L.C. Smith featherweight, and Parker "0" frame guns are all around 6.4 pounds down to about 5.5 pounds dependent upon wood.
