*On 1929, just eight years after the introduction of the Lefever Nitro Special, and on the eve of the Great Depression, the Ithaca Gun Company created a new corporation. the Western Arms Corporation, Ithaca, New York.
The new company produced one model shotgun, the low-cost Long Range Double.
With this introduction, the company then participated in the high-, middle-, and low-priced markets.
The new model was well received. More than 65,000 guns were made before the model was discontinued in 1946.
