I just ran into a double rifle I'm curios about. I'm mostly curious as to what the caliber might be, as there are no markings that I can find designationg this. The seller says it's an Ithaca, unknown model, double rifle in some 8mm caliber, rimmed I believe. This seems odd for an American gun but I didn't know Ithaca made double rifles. The owner can't tell me much about it as this is an estate sale and I can't find much about it with what I have on hand. The seller won't let me take it to a gunsmith for chamber measurements either so I'm kind of guessing. It is in fairly used shape, about equal to many similar field guns of the 1920s and 30s today. Bluing is mostly worn off, the writing on the reciever is fairly worn also, enough that it is difficult to make out much of it (it does look like it says Ithaca on the side though), and the stock needs finishing and plenty of TLC. It is a bit loose in the action but not as bad as on a Ruger Red Label. It as dual leaf sights, one folding, claw type scope mounts, and sling swivels. I'm thinking it is a war trophy from a company whose name is similar to Ithaca and it is hard to tell by the wear. If anybody has an idea on this gun I'd surely appreciate hearing them.
