It is a short barrel, pistol grip side by side in 20 gauge. What were the years of production and how many units were made? Ithaca gun link (http://www.ncc-1776.com/tle1997/le970315-03.html)

Not sure of the numbers, but they are one handful to fire.

Mac Scott had an article about them a couple of years ago in one of his catalogs. I'll see if I still have it.

According to The World's Fighting Shotguns by Thomas F. Swearengen the Auto & Burglar was made from 1922 until 1934. Approximately 4500 were fabricated. However, not all were actually sold.
This book has a several page writeup on the Ithaca, among many other shotguns of this style; including the Handy Gun, Holland Auto Burglar, The Defiance Anti-
Bandit Gun P-50 etc.
