Description:

Produced between 1925 and 1934, the Auto & Burglar was marketed as a personal defense weapon for civilians, more potent than a standard handgun but easier to maneuver in a bedroom or a car than a full length shotgun. Single brass bead sight, solid rib between the "SMOKELESS POWDER STEEL" and "MADE IN U.S.A." marked barrels, and both sides of the frame decorated with a pointer in a field over the "AUTO & BURGLAR GUN/ITHACA GUN CO. ITHACA, N.Y." markings. Checkered forearm and pistol grip stock, with the latter showing a very sharp angle and pronounced web knuckle for recoil management. NOTE: This weapon is registered as a National Firearms Act (NFA), AOW (Any Other Weapon). Although NOT a fully automatic weapon it is still controlled like a NFA weapon that is registered with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, (BATFE) under the provisions of 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44 and 27 CFR part 478. It is also classified as a "Curios or Relic" as defined in 27 CFR, 478.11. These weapons are also subject to the provisions of 18 U.S.C.
