Ithaca Model 66

Post  MartyO4570 on Mon Dec 31, 2012 1:10 am

For some reason, I like this gun. It is a lever action, single shot. The lever breaks the gun open. It is chambered for a 3 inch shell. I have several in the 12 and 20 gauge variations. My prize is a rarer model called a "Buck Buster." It is a 20 gauge with an IMP CYL barrel with rifle sights. It comes with a 24 inch smooth bore barrel. Perfect for 50 yard shots. After looking for several years, I lucked out and found one in Kansas City for $200 in very good condition. It had a mirror bore.

My big disappointment is that back in 2004, I had a chance to get a 410 model, but the seller got flaky. I sure would have liked that. You guys know how much more valuable a 410 is over a 12. 28's as well, but Ithaca didn't make a Model 66 in 28 gauge.

I took the Buckbuster out rabbit hunting last Saturday. I still do pretty good for just using a single shot. Nice gun. At 30 yards you can't miss with #6 shot and the IMP CYL barrel.

This is a great starter shotgun and in fact they sold a youth model with a shorter LOP.

There are plenty of 12 and 20 gauge models out there on the market.
