Ithaca Mag-10

The Ithaca Mag-10 is a gas-operated, semi-automatic shotgun chambered in 10-gauge (3½"). The CounterCoil system built into the front of the magazine tube reduced the recoil from the round to allow easier second shots but cut the magazine size in half to 2 shells. Regular models had jeweled-finish bolts, engraved barrels and checkered stocks. It was produced until 1989, at which point Remington Arms bought the design and used it as the basis for the Remington Model SP-10.

The RoadBlocker, featuring a shorter 21" barrel, was designed for the law enforcement market, but met with little commercial success. It had a parkerized finish on the barrel, trigger group and bolt and plain walnut stocks. The barrel was rollmarked "RoadBlocker" and the weapon had a serial number with an RB prefix. The 1985 model could be ordered with a ribbed barrel for an extra $34.


The DeerSlayer featured a 22" barrel and rifle sights and was optimized for firing slugs. It came in a blued or parkerized finish and a plain stock.
