Just bought this one last week and love it. I`m guessing it`s birthdate to be around 1917, serial no. 2692XX. It`s a 12 ga Flues. Barrels are pristine as well as the action. It fits me like a glove.

A guy I work with just brought in a Flues &Nig, 1913, serial number : 239763. The stock is busted up pretty bad. The barrel is rusted some but fixable. Question, worth much as is? Replace stock, blue the barrel and hunt with it? Back ground: looks like someone tried to fix the stock a long time ago. Terrible job. I wouldn't trust it as it is to hunt with. What say you guys?

I would say "AS-IS", not much. $50-$100, tops. Put a new stock on it and get the barrels rust blued and you will have a fine hunter.

You're welcome. Part of the problem of their relatively low value is that there are still alot of them around. The actions do not break under normal instances. The good news is that they are still very useable and if you are looking for a side by side that is of very high quality, they cannot be beat.

Went to a gun show on March 9th, found and bought an Ithaca Flues 10 gauge 1 1/2 grade with Damascus barrels. Serial number 208842. The gun has ejectors and is in mint shape. Paid $500 for it, so it was a great deal. Here are the pictures.

Well I didn't hold out much hope, but, wrongly spelled and mis-identified at a UK Auction I have now what I believe is a Flues 10g 1911 vintage. Cosmetically a little rough and not a high grade, I am nonetheless thrilled to have found an Ithaca Double. Ser. No. 207775 (all matching), its a great lump of a gun, 28" plain barrels 1/4 and 3/4 choke, 3" (76mm) chambers, wide machined rib, non ejector, all working and as tight a lock-up as you could wish for. I love it!
I should be grateful for the forums input, particularly if I have wrongly identified it myself!

Edit........... Paid £110 (about $150) for it, seems a bargain to me :D

Thanks Donald, I guess that Damascus barrels add a lot of value. Would you say that mine was 'Field Grade'? it does have the retriever engraving, although not deep (maybe just worn) but no fancy stars or scrolls

Don't think it would be a 1.5 like mine, but looks like a 1. A field gradse is very plain. Very strong guns, almost unbreakable. Will be a great shooter for you. It will take a bit of getting used to, be will be a comfortable gun to shoot. Thanks Donald
