General Specs: Ithaca, Year 1929, 12 Gauge., 7lbs. 11oz., Choked Full, LOP 14″, DAH 1 7/8″, DAC 1 5/8″
Serial Number:  402219

The Ithaca Gun Co. produced the most iconic trap gun ever invented, the Knickerbocker Single Barrel Trap Gun.  In production from 1922 until the last Knick was made in 1982, 5740 were produced.  By 1935 the Knick in the hands of able shooters won the Grand American Handicap six times, by 1976 was responsible for over 25% of the total wins at the Grand American and has been the most well-known and most sought-after single barrel trap gun in American history.  The Knick we show here, sn402219 built in 1929, is in excellent condition, with 90% factory case color, 95% factory blue, and beautifully figured wood and excellent checkering recently restored by Vintage Firearms with a hand-rubbed oil finish.  The mechanics are superb, with a 3.25 crisp trigger pull and well-timed ejector, barrel tight on the hinge pin and breech face, top lever to the right of center, and excellent screws properly clocked on the axis of the gun.  This is a VFI CERTIFIED GUN, meaning we stripped the action and forend iron to the smallest part, cleaned all in the Ultrasonic cleaner, scrubbed each part and inspected all for function and integrity, properly lubricated and reassembled.  VFI CERTIFIED guns have a 90-day mechanical warranty (a $375 service in our shop).  There is nothing needed to be done to this gun except take it to the club and show your trap friends why the Ithaca Knickerbocker was such and amazing trap gun.  With its 4” long tapered choke these older guns pattern far better than most modern guns.  The Knick will compete side by side with any Krieghoff, Kolar, or Perazzi for the trophy at your next shoot.  Hand engraved and elaborately hand checkered, a modern trap gun so adorned would cost well over $12,000.  You can have this beautiful Ithaca for a small fraction of that price!  Thanks for looking.
