Default Old Ithaca

I recently picked up an gun off a friend who needed a little cash it's a semi-auto model 51-Featherlight 12 gauge 2 3/4 inch chamber made by Ithaca gun co, Ithaca NY. Serial number 510055916 I picked it up for 150 dollars which I thought was a pretty good deal its in about 75% to 80% conditionany ideas what it's worth?

I started my quest to seek out information for my 1908 Ithaca Flues by first looking up my serial number

http://www.ithacagun.com/pdfs/serialnumbers.pdf

Then head over to

http://www.diamondgunsmithing.com/IGRC/IGRC.html


To continue your quest

as far as value...you're goin to get a LOT of different answers. My recommendation - be glad you own an Ithaca...my first started an obsession with me, and i'll NEVER sell any of the ones I own.

Yeah now that I have found a little more information on it I've found a good one in new condition is worth about 200-to-230 soo I didn't get a steal at 150 like I had thought but I paid about what it is worth at 75 to 80 percent condition

That's about right for that gun.

I have the o/u model 500 featherlight in 20 ga. I love those old Ithacas they are just good solid guns.
