.22 Extra Long - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It's wiki, but it has some dates on the .22 "extra long".
The .22 Extra Long ceased to be offered commercially in 1935.[1]
Introduced around 1880, the .22 Extra Long was used in Remington, Ballard, Wesson, Stevens, and later (1916) models of Winchester's M1903 and M1904 single shot bolt action rifles,[1] as well as in Smith & Wesson revolvers.[1]
Thanks, i had never heard of the .22 "extra long".


Nowhere near new. Nice collection!

Just got a response from Ithaca.

Dear Linda,


Your Ithaca double barrel side by side shotgun is a Flues Model, which was built in 1913.



Here is a little history on the Flues Model:



The Flues Model

The Flues Model was introduced in 1906 and remained in production through 1926; it enjoyed the longest production life of any Ithaca double gun. The Flues was built on a three piece lock mechanism designed and patented by Emil Flues. The lock mechanism was comprised of a sear, a hammer with integral cocking arm, and a coil spring. The frame of the Flues model was stronger than that of its predecessors, because the simpler lock mechanism required less metal to be milled from it; making reinforcement around the water table and standing breech no longer necessary.

The Flues Model was offered in 10, 12, 16, 20 and 28 gauges; and in several different grades beginning with the Field grade and ending with the Sousa Special grade.

Approximately 223,000 guns were produced between1908 and the end of 1925.

A Field Grade Flues Model currently in excellent condition is booked price to be worth an estimated $1000; the Sousa Special in excellent condition is listed to be worth and estimated $15000.



Thank you for contacting

Ithaca Gun Company

The "long" and the "long rifle" are different animals. The "long rifle" cartridge is longer than the long that's why I thought "extra long" may be the same or very similar to the LR.
