    A cousin of mine had one of the M66 12 gauge, but went missing the day after he passed away. I called the police on this matter but we have yet to get any results.

    Did Ithaca make a 22. LR single shot lever rifle? I seem to remember at the YMCA 22 rimfire range a good 45+ years ago a boy had one. At that time I thought it was odd.
    Yes the YMCA 22LR. range was in Brooklyn NY.
    TNY

    PS. I WAS ALSO A BOY 45+ YEARS AGO!

    Yep; the model 49. Had the falling block with a fake magazine tube. I believe that they later offered a repeater designated the M-49R; they also imported another one from Germany called the M-72, which was basically the original version of what Henry is making today.
    The world is much better with a pair of calipers.

    Same here, that old M49 was pretty beat up, sights were banged around to the point I'd have to dope the wind even on a calm day as if it were 15mph from left to right. Even had a system of quick reloading worked out. Oh to be 10 years old again.

    I miss that old Ithaca...
