View Full Version : Ithaca Trench Gun
Has anyone ever seen an WW2 Ithaca Trench Gun? I did see one on GB about 6 years ago, and that was the last and only one I have seen. The later Model 37 are everywhere, but the early ones???
I've seen a few of them. But they are quite rare. They only made about 1400 of them.
I am in the middle of a restoration of a WWII Ithaca trench gun and am very interested in what the stock looks like for that vintage shotgun. I want to make sure I have the correct vintage stock on my project. Thanks.
Most WW2 ithicas I have seen had the plain military stocks.I also know of a few that have commercial stocks which are original and numbered to the gun.
Besides the Remington M10 trenchgun the Ithica M37 trenchgun is considered the "Holy Grail" of US martial shotguns. There were approx 1450 produced during WW2 and only a small number survive today. I have one in my collection that I purchased a number of years ago along with the original shipping records. I'm still looking for the Remington M10, someday! Aside from the rarity, I think the Winchester M12 trenchgun in a perfect factory blued finish is just as awesome and a lot less $. Bruce Canfield has an excellent book "Combat Shotguns" that every collector should own.
I have all of Bruce's books. He live just down the road from me.. A model 10 sold on the RIA last year and went for over 10K.. I guess I will have a hard time finding that and the 37, but I will keep looking..
I saw the model 10 trench gun your talking about at the Tulsa show last year.RIA had it on display and it did not look correct ..not worth 10k.
