Stevens 350 shotgun who's got one ?
Thinking about buying one.
Dose anyone own one of theses, and if so how do you like it ?
A freind of mine bought one. It works, seems solid. Out of the box fired >100 rds (wally world target, a few buck and slugs) on the first day No complaints.except that its a sign more sporting shotguns in the future may be made in China.
Used Ithaca's in the shop I frequent are from $150 - $250. So used Ithaca's are an option in the same price range too.
I'm close to buying the Savage myself - at the price they offer, its hard to resist.
Shot one a few months back,
Loved the ghost ring sight (alot)
Trigger needs some work, very hard pull although I can see why if its a HD gun
I liked the bottom eject/feed and had no problems with rapid loading
Got one for ~$225 OTD about a year and a half ago. Ghost-ring model, 4+1 and 18.5" barrel––wish I'd waited til this year, looks like they extended the mag tube for 5+1.
Haven't put it through much use, though. Initial impressions are that it seems decently solid, feed seems smooth if a little "loose." Liking the stock drop and the sights are about 95% of what I want, though I'd prefer a square-topped front sight blade.
Need to figure out a flashlight mounting solution, though, and pattern-test some different buckshot loads, see what will wind up being my HD load.
Love it. Good value for the money. Updated Ithaca design with dual action bars. The trigger pull was absolutely awful. Learned how to take the thing apart and removed the monstrous Chinese burrs on the trigger group. The trigger pull is much improved! Now I'm looking at real Ithacas!

PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! Tell us how you did this / show us with pictures. I like mine, but the trigger feels like it is a manly 52 1/2 LBS!
Here's a good place to start. There are a number of Ithaca related videos and web sites that can be of help. After you get the trigger group out you''l have to drift out pins that are under spring pressure. Be careful. Take it easy on the burr removal, as well. Don't over-do it. Procede at your own risk. Replacement parts for the Stevens are probably non-existent.
