1914 - 1922

The Ithaca Gun Company first produced a single-barrel trap gun in 1914. Their guns were based on the Emil Flues three piece lock design and known as the Flues Single-Barrel Trap up until 1922 when it was replaced with a New Improved Design (NID) created by Frank Knickerbocker.

Remington, Browning and Parker Shotguns are usually my favorite Shotguns, but I fell in love with this Ithaca 4E Flues antique Trap gun at first sight. I've read that Ithaca made a habit of producing guns for which Remington patents had expired. Ithaca really hit home runs with the Flues and Knickerbocker trap guns as far as I'm concerned!
