First Look: Ithaca Precision Rifle

Ithaca Gun Company has long been known for its classic Model 37, an innovative bottom-loading, bottom-ejecting pump-action shotgun produced since the late 1930s. Recently, however, the American manufacturer based in Sandusky, Ohio, has branched out by developing and releasing its very first rifle design.

Ithaca Precision Rifle-FDubbed the Ithaca Precision Rifle, the gun is built off of the classic Remington Model 700 design and has been tailor-made for long-range work. Each rifle features a 4340 chromoly steel billet receiver, a 4140 single piece billet non-welded bolt, and a competition-grade barrel
and trigger.

Ithaca produces the new Precision Rifle’s action entirely in-house using high-quality CNC-machining equipment, and the bolt raceway is wire electrical discharge machined (EDM) for added precision. Each barrel is also paired to the action by experienced craftsmen and comes with 1/2 MOA guarantee.
