UK 66

Quite a rarity amongst the rare beasts that are Ithaca this side of the pond, I am happy to have found a 20g model 66 in fairly decent shape. The wood seems wonderfully figured, beautiful and faultless, other than stripping and Danish oiling, most of the work will be a barrel re-blue and restoring the paintwork on the lever. It comes up to the eye remarkably well and for a small gun feels just about right. I'm looking forward to shooting this latest addition to my Ithaca stable and also reloading for the '20

Good looking 66! Too bad Ithaca didn't make a 410 66.

I agree, and, if they had followed the Russian Baikal trend of using the same sized barrel stock and different bore then we would have an indestructible .410!

Edit........ according to the schematic they did make a .410 though!
...........and Numrich have a barrel in stock!

Opps I do have one. I thought it was a 20 gauge, nope it is a 410. I've got too many to remember. Old age setting in!
