I have been sitting the sidelines here at 16ga.com for a long time. I have picked up a lot of worthy information from these pages and feel it is time to join in.
I am a machinist by trade. I collect and shoot vintage American SxS's when time allows. I do gunsmthing by appointment(precision rifles), and study and document the lesser known American SxS mechanisms.
Among my aquistions are several 16ga guns and this is the year I have chosen to christen them back into the fields.
Welcome in. The Cabelas in LaVista has an Ithaca double marked New Ithaca Gun (it's a 12ga). First one I'd seen, always something interesting popping up out there.
I checked Cabelas site but came up empty for any NIG's.
NIG normally refers to the Hammer models after the Baker and before the Two-Bolt HG. But some of the first Ithaca Hammerless guns had the "NEW ITHACA GUN" roll stamp.
There are three variants of the NIG Hammer gun. I am still looking for the first two types.

Welcome to the best sporting forum on the net, glade to have another American Classic double gun collector posting. I have a nice Classic American double gun collection also, and use the guns to bird hunt with each and every season. 90% of my bird hunting is done on Grouse and woodcock.
A little Classic LeFever/Ithaca eye candy for ya from the 1920's.
