Ithaca SKB Model 800

3 posts in this topic

A co-worker of mine wants to sell me his Ithaca SKB Model 800 O/U 12 gauge shotgun. From what I know, these guns were manufactured in Japan for Ithaca from the mid 60's to the mid 70's. I shot it at the range and smashed the clays nicely, A very nice looking firearm - seems to be in great shape with only a deep scratch on the stock. Not much info on the web on this O/U. I think I can get it for $500 which I think is a good deal.

Anyone know anything about this Ithaca SKB ?

SKB is the gunsmith firm Shigyo Sakaba in Japan. They have been around since 1855. SKB history


The 800 is a high grade skeet or trap gun that SKB made for Ithaca. (They also made O/U's for Weatherby for a number of years. The Orion model name should come to mind for some.) SKB's are excellent shotguns. There is a forum on ShotgunWorld dedicated for just SKB shotguns if you have more questions or want to research your model more.


For $500, this is a very good price for this used gun. It has an extremely strong lockup and is as good in quality as any 68X Beretta or Citori O/U and I'd pick it over the Ruger O/U any day.


The Brits take their shotguns seriously, and the SKB models sold across the pond would be considered exquisite in quality. SKB - UK

    • The HK Web Shop advised this morning there's a 3-for-2 magazine sale with free shipping on orders over $50 until Monday. Since almost every H&K mag lists at $50, this amounts to three magazines at a 33% discount with free shipping. Note that the discount and free shipping did not appear in my shopping cart, but should be reflected in the final order, as noted on their home page. Update: The correct discounted charge was made. Only sales tax added.
