My Ithaca Mag10 is coming out as expected, or maybe better. I bought an un-fired standard grade gun, then found a seconf gun that was slightly damaged buy a fire. I had the barrel from the second gun cut down to 28" and had Briley install extended choke tubes. My handloads with BBs are great performers and with 3s are deadly on ducks. I notice that especially on cripples, the gun is more effective then a 12ga. 3" gun. I am stripping the wood from the second gun, it looks like it is high grade. It is going to be an attractice gun when finished and I will have spare parts. I am going to spend part of the off season developing more handloads, and pattern testing. I am very pleased so far. eGrant
