Ithaca NID Retro-Fit Ejectors

Post by Researcher »

A late NID No. 2(E) 16-gauge appeared on GI today. It appears to me that the ejectors were retrofitted. Instead of the normally seen separate stem for each ejector --

it has a split stem through the hole an extractor stem would use, like Fox or Parker used --

Instead of the widely spaced ejector hammers for the separate stems --

the gun offered has the ejector hammers bent towards the center for the split stem --

Also, the forearm doesn't have the lever and the rocking bloc the lever actuates (as in Charkes King's design for the Parker Bros. forearm latch) but we can see the hole for the pin the block would pivot on in the forearm iron. The forearm just has the "Baker" J-spring as used on the late extractor forearms. No serial number on the forearm iron either. Anyone seen this before? Done by Ithaca Gun Co.?

Dave,

I’m not sure I can add anything other than, no, I’ve never seen an Ithaca like this before. My first opinion would be, this was not done by Ithaca.

Only my opinion,
