Default Some old shotguns of my father and grandfather

(Broken up because of the 4 image limit)

I don't know much about them, so if anyone knows anything please speak up. They used them for hunting, except for the first one, which was kept in the house for self defense (Grandfather was in the Navy during WWII, Pacific theatre).

First one (my dad said it was a mossberg, but I don't know) 12Ga. :

Some of the pictures might be a little blurry because it was a droid x cell camera.

Very nice. That Ithaca is sweet.

I know it was made in japan but it still shoots very well. IIRC I overheard a conversation about the earlier ones being made in the USA, and this is one of the later ones. (I think it was when they were in financial trouble)

No degredation of the Ithica because it is MIJ, it may even be better!! I'm sure they maintained their exceptionally high quality control.

The 16ga model 37 is a classic--hold onto that one!

I know this is unrelated to the topic, But does Ithica make a single-shot .410? My .410 is atleast 40 years old, so the markings are worn off. The only thing I saw on the side was Miami,FL and Hiroshima, Japan...

Nice Semi-auto! That thing just looks sweet! Shoot good?
