Are you sure that its a 16? The MAG prefix means it will take a 3" shell. In this country they don't make 3" 16ga shells. I am thinking its a 12.


Your serial numbers according to the chart I have show it was made in 1986.


Hope this helps

Go to www.ithacaowners.com or www.ithacagun.com in either site the serial number listing can be found. The serial you have given shows up as a 1986 gun.
