    Anyone ever own or shoot one of those things?

    It's the lever-action-looking single shot.

    Is it a rolling-block, or a break-action?

    Worth $50 as a "truck gun"?

    Break action I'm pretty sure, its been a long time since I've seen one. Just about any shotgun in fair shape is worth $50

    Here's a pic from the net.

    Let's see.

    Old hunting bud used one in 20 gauge with slugs for years despite owning other shotguns. It Brenneked lots of meat. His just had a bead. Recoil was emphatic but survivable.

    For $50, heck yes....

    No way you can go wrong for that price. I've always used mostly pump shotguns for hunting but as I've gotten older and a bit gimpy, I find myself using an old lightweight single barrel more and more.

    My son killed his first canada goose with the same gun when he was 12 years old on Kent Island. He's 39 now. Now it goes to his son. How can you go wrong.

    I bought a new Model 66/20ga in early 70's for $34.95 and in 3" magnum. Great for small game. Owned a Iver Johnson 16 gauge but like the Model 66 for rabbit and squirrel hunting.

    Like new, a Model 66 Ithaca can bring an easy $200 now.
    They have a bit of a collector following.

    Average used gun will bring an easy $125 retail.
