Certainly better and best known for its shotguns, including the famous Model 37, there were, once upon a time, Ithaca rifles as well.

This was Ithaca's first endeavor into rifle making. Eventually the firm produced a single-shot, a lever-action, and a fine bolt-action.

“The Ithaca Gun Company of Ithica, N.Y., is best remembered for the double barreled shotguns they once manufactured. If your father or grandfather was a waterfowl or upland bird hunter he might have used one. If he also enjoyed the sport of trap shooting he might have started the game with an Ithaca single-barrel trap gun. … Up until about 1958 Ithaca never bothered with a rifle, but in that year they introduced the Model X5 Lightning, a semi-automoatic 22 rimfire … .Then they introduced the Model 49 single shot 22, and after that the Model 72 lever action repeater. But the Ithaca rifle that interested me most was the LSA-55, a centerfire bolt action.” Frank de Haas, from the Gun Digest/Krause Publications book “Bolt Action Rifles 4th Edition,” by Frank de Haas and Wayne van Zwoll
