Looked at Ithaca’s website today and see the price of field 37s is now $1,200; up $300 from last month.

Ouch!

Sad. But there a lot of fine M-37 guns on the market for a fraction of the new ones. :D

.

FWIW, I don't know of ANY factory worker that doesn't want a pay or benefit raise - which drives up the cost of whatever they're making.

True.

Could be that since Remington is done, Ithaca sees the potential for a spike in demand. Based on the construction, the 37 is probably worth the increased price. It’s not made from stamped sheet metal and aluminum, like most semi autos that bring a comparable or higher price.

Ithacas are not the only item that took a big price increase.

A transmission part I wanted for my Corvette jumped $300.00. I see this across a lot of different types of goods.

Fortunately for me I knew of a business that had them still in stock at the old price so I bought one.

$300.00 can be a deal breaker. They are already on the ragged edge of what folks are wanting to pay for a heavy, pump action shotgun. No matter how nice they are.

Back when I was getting into Ithacas for hunting I was looking at a 16ga one. It was heavy and the length of pull was too long for me. That forced me into looking at the used Ithaca market, which I am glad I did.

I hate being old but at least I own all the guns I will ever need and that feels good right now.

It's a good time to liquidate the guns that don't get used or don't give you the same thrill that they once did. I've got all the guns I'll ever need too and the extras are going away.

I am going to put some of my 16ga guns on Gunbroker. I cannot believe how much they are selling for right now.

We're thinning the guns down a bit. We sold a few, some I've listed if they do not sell that's fine too.
