Hi all. I own a XL900 .12 ga. It is about 40 years old now. I find it to be the best shotgun I ever had...and I had several shotguns the last 40 years. Sold or traded every one of them but NEVER my XL900 !! :D It has burned thousands of rounds especially the first 5 years as I used it for trap shooting.
Never had the slightest problem with it.

Today I am looking to find another barrel to put on it. I would like a 26" I/C. I live in Quebec so I can't order one from US. Can somebody tell me where I could find one in Canada? I would really appreciate.

Tks

There is a fellow by the name of Ron Sharp up in Canada. He was associated with the former Ithaca gun co., and is considered the expert up there. Also does Ebay sell gun parts in Canada? Ebay is a good source here in the states.

Ebay does not allow any gun parts of any kind shipped to USA.

I have sent a PM to burn 20100 with Ron Sharp's phone number, as he does not have internet. He does have loads of Ithaca parts and a lot of Ithaca SKB parts. And boy does he have a great knowledge of Ithacas.

I got in touch with Ron Sharp and he had a last one in stock. But it would have cost me $320 to get it...almost the price of a whole xl900 on the net. So I decided to have my 30" cut to 26" and it cost me $65 !!
Tks anyway Don.

Here is the result. Very good job done. Very satisfied. The barrel is now 25 1/4" long. Had to fit the tip of barrel with rib support.
The choke is now right at the edge of I/C - MOD. I am very happy with that.
