Ithaca is done, read several articles today and it is sad indead. Ithaca wasn't much in the rifle market, but they made great shotguns. They were the first to make the 3-1/2" 10 gauge, which came out in their double barrel, many years ago. They were the first to make a 10 gauge autoloader, the "Mag 10". Of course, they are most famous for their Model 37, which was designed by John M. Browning for Remington and came out as the Remington Model 17.
I live here in upstate New York and am sad to see ithica go but it`s what has beeen happening with most of the better paying jobs around here.there has been 10 or more manufacturing companys go under in the last 4 years and i don`t see any other jobs that will replace them other than a new Mc donalds.It`s sad but clinton got his wish that America is to be a service only economy.
