I am finally going next week to go examine this Ithaca Model 37 Featherweight in 20 gauge a guy wants to sell.

What is the serial number range of years of manufacture of the Ithaca 37?

Thank you.

How about this one?

Mom and Dad bought it at the Rich's Store in Atlanta, Ga and gave it to me on my 13th Birthday.

Oops. I must have been 14.

The gun is now at Ithaca being repaired and reblued. I'll be like a 14 year old again when it gets home.

Thanks.

I've got an old 37 I inherited from my neighbor who taught me to hunt back in the 60s. Serial # is 175524. Can you tell me how old it is? Also, are new barrells available for guns this old? I'd like to get a modified choke for it. BTW, it's a 20 gauge. Thanks.

1948.

And since it's an older one ("pre 855,000" serial number) any replacement barrel will have to be fit by a qualified gunsmith.

OK I have two that I would like to know the age!

20ga 4537xx

12ga 767xx R

Wondering if the 20 is old enough to be worth a restoration?? How much does something like that cost??

The 12ga looks like the stock has been refinished & the blue is probably 95% ++. I love this one, it has been in our family for 30+ years.

Thanks in advance!

The 20-1952 and the 12 1960. Les Hovencamp who posts on this site can discuss restoration prices. He is one of the best.
