While Ithaca Gun Company is primarily known for its shotguns, the company is no stranger to pistols and rifles. In fact, between 1942 and 1945, Ithaca made 382,000 Model 1911A1 pistols for the U.S. military.

In 2010, on the eve of the 100th anniversary of the John Browning design, Ithaca introduced its modern version of the venerable 1911.

CARRY 1911

Based on the success of its full-sized 1911s, Ithaca is now offering a Carry version. This pistol comes standard with a full-sized grip frame and a 4.25-inch barrel.

These pistols feature Series 70 trigger systems; billet steel slides with lowered and flared ejection ports; billet steel frames; match-grade barrels and bushings; tool-steel hammers, sears and disconnectors; lightened aluminum triggers; checkered steel mainspring housings; wooden grips and seven-round magazines. And Ithaca’s custom shop offers various finish, grip and sight options.


Ithaca’s also developing precision rifles in conjunction with a world-record-holding marksman.

Each rifle features a chrome-moly steel billet receiver, a 4140 bolt, and match-grade barrels and triggers. Every action is CNC-machined in-house, and the rifles are assembled by hand for 0.5-MOA.
