Joe, a brass bristle brush with a good cleaning solution (I like BoreTech Eliminator) should shine the walls right up. Then just dry patch her til they come through clean.

Sidebyside16,

It seems at least a few of us are of the same mind on this. Based on my observed list, my current guess is 2-4% of production could be Ithaca assembled. My actual observation is on ...

Daryl,

Ive got a "GE" stamped water table. But the plates say Syracuse. I think the "Ithaca,NY" plates are ULTRA rare. Ejector stamps are more prevalent. And other Ithaca in ...

Joe,

No, Lefever never marked for ejectors.

And while i peraonally believe that the number of guns people attribute to Ithaca production is overestimated...in this case, an E stamp after the gra ...

Thx Dr. Bob.

I have to check and see if i have the DGJ articles that Hans P. apparently did. I'll be interested to see what, if any, association he drew to Lefever beyond using the patent.

Also ...

OK, well there is a lot of conflicting terminology about what constitutes a "gunmaker," and that seems to be the source of some confusion. It seems part of the confusion about why H.A. Lind ...

Yes, those are the generally cited facts. There either was some additional Ferlach connection, or im just confusing my Austrians and their cities (Kornbrath was from Ferlach). I do not know if all o ...

Dr. Bob,

Yes, i know about the H.A. Lindner Daly's. I also recall that there has been some debate about who he actually was. Im thinking of a forum thread (maybe on DoubleGunShop...?...cant recall ...
