Our Assessment: The Ithaca Mag-10 was a purpose-built hunting shotgun, perfect for the longest shots on the biggest birds. Firing 3 1/2″ 10 gauge shells, it will throw a lot of lead out with each shot, and with its semi-automatic action, it can quickly follow up. The CounterCoil gas system built into the front of the gas system combined with a weight of nearly twelve pounds ought to help keep the recoil down. The weight will also help you appreciate the padding on the included sling when you’re out in the field! This shotgun is in Very Good-Fine condition and is ready to throw one heck of a lot of lead downrange. Please see our photos and good luck!
