Our Assessment: This is certainly a beautiful looking shotgun and with the legendary Ithaca / SKB name, it probably shoots as well as it looks. It is an easy gun to shoulder and comes right up with your head down on the stock. This may prove to be a fine sporting clays shotgun. Of course it will perform on upland game as well. It’s a head turner...
