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
If only Jack O'Connor had written about the .270's effectiveness on Zombies, he might be known today as a decent gun scribe, and that cartridge might enjoy more widespread use...
