Regarding your inquiry concerning the Ithaca Lightning 12 ga. shotgun.  Lightning was  a name used by Ithaca over the years.  These guns were manufactured in Japan. 

The barrel you are referring to, item# 589820 12 ga. 28" Modified Type II, fits the Ithaca/SKB 300 and 900 series of "recoil operated" semi-auto shotguns.   It will not fit any of the Ithaca/SKB XL 300 and 900 "gas operated" semi-auto shotguns.

Even though the barrels look very similar there are differences in the tang shape and ejector type.

Hope this clarifies things for you.
