Ithaca shotguns were originally manufactured in 1937 , in response to the Remington Model 17. Because this pump-action shotgun both loads and ejects shells from the bottom, the Ithaca has become a popular choice for left-handed shooters.
Rich Shoop (The Gun Slinger, Mt. Ayr, Indiana) was hired to restore this antique Ithaca, and discovered a missing piece on the barrel. He called MuggyWeld for assistance, and opted to use SSF-6 Silver Solder to repair the missing piece. After sand-blasting the steel parts, he brazed the steel, then powder coated the part to finish.
