I have an Ithaca M-49R .22 repeater which I just got. I wanted to go completely through the gun even though it looked in excellent condition.
I looked everywhere and could not find any take down info on it. I saw a lot of good comments for the 49 and positive comments about the 49R but zero info about servicing. I even contacted Ithaca and a former gunsmith from Ithaca and I bought a CD of 2100 gun manuals but still came up empty. Being very mechanical and have had success with my other rifles so I decided to figure it out myself. I sat down and found the secret to take it all down. I then took pictures and wrote a take down procedure. So if you need the take down for the Ithaca M-49R or the M-49 contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
