I am requesting any assistance in determining value on my Ithaca Shotgun, so I'm approaching you riot gun Guru's to help shed some light on this shotgun.
The internet is too spotty and info isn't clear enough on these older guns, they just dont show up enough. Gunbroker only has a few listings and they're all the newer guns currently being manufactured.
I do know the company ownership has changed hands many times and has moved manufacturing location. I also know the current Ithaca company has been manufacturing a new version of the gun sometime after 2000.
This gun appears to be your classic military LE riot gun.
* Ithaca Model 37 Featherlight details as follows;
-Truley Excellent plus condition, no refinished gun, no marks or mares except on mag tube from slide action
-Serial number range puts it manufactured in 1981 (371713XXX)
-20 inch barrel with bead sight, 2 3/4 inch chamber, cylinder bore, marked CYL
-8 shot magazine
-Smooth Walnut stock and corncob type forgrip, no cushion butt pad, just standard black "Ithacagun" inscripted butt plate with "in air" shot pattern above I.
-Dark charcoal gray parkerizing, looks greenish in certain light
-Only markings on the receiver is the serial number on the right side above trigger and .......forward right side of receiver, appears to be an anvil shaped image with a P in the middle struck in steel, same struck image on the barrel just forward of the receiver same side.
Any info would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance, JB
