Hello,
I suppose my post here will be a sort of introduction. I'm an avid Ithaca fan, and there is truly is a wealth of information here.

Anyways, here are a few photos of my Ithaca shotguns currently:

1950 Ithaca 37T in pieces, and the stock photos are of the wood from that gun. I'll need to restore this gun entirely, and I have a NOS factory forend blank that I'll have the checkering on the existing one duplicated on. Not a bad project gun for $125

1941 37S with gorgeous wood and a Herter's Polychoke.

1952 37 with a replaced forend. The original one is in great shape, but I stumbled on this one online and decided to toss it on. Scored this one for $150 at a small shop.

1949 37 in 16. My first shotgun.

Ithaca/SKB 900 XL in 12.

Nice guns, but I might be a little confused; the auto looks just like my two 900's which are recoil operated guns. The XL900 should be gas operated.
Still really nice guns
Thanks for the post

You're right. It's a 900. My mistake!

Well I just bought my first M37. I’ve wanted one for a long time. It’s a 1976 field model with 28” barrel choked mod. Image

Good deal that the barrel has modified choke, you should be able to do anything you want with it.

I recently got my first M37, I'm using it for trap. It's nice but I still shoot my M12 better.

I'm thinking of getting a 20 ga for pheasants.

This one shoots high, so I'll probably give it a try at trap. I would love to have a 20 gauge as well. I can see taking this one dove hunting.

Have you tried a 16 for pheasants? I have a Flues sxs, a couple of M37's, a Marlin 90 over under and a Citori o/u, all in 16 and that's all I bring to my annual South Dakota trip. I really like the Marlin and Flues because they are double trigger guns. Front trigger for close flushes, back trigger for longer flushes. The Flues is IC and Mod and the Marlin is M and F. I switch it up depending on the cover. I used to bring my 20 gauge Ithaca M51 semi-auto but it weighs as much as the 16's. I wish Ithaca had made the 51 in 16.

That is beautiful! Sure turned out well.

LOL I just listed my Marlin 90 16 ga. on Gunbroker last night. The only 16 ga. I'm getting rid of. But also listed some 20 ga. guns just now both Ultralight 37's one a deerslayer. Pretty much replacing all my 20 ga. guns with 16's. And need to make room in the safe. You give some good advice, I much prefer the 16 over the 20 on SD roosters.

I should keep up on this thread more often. Do you still have the ultralights?

Yeah I just happened to see someone (you) posted in here myself, don't check here like I should. Some great guns pictured in this thread. I still have the 20 ga. deerslayer UL but sold the 20 ga. 25" UL. Have another 20 ga. UL that has been drilled and tapped for a scope and has sling swivels in it so it is not a collector item, but a good shooter in IC. Don't think I will ever shoot it however as the 16's are keeping me busy.

Gentlemen,

I own a one of a kind LeFever/Ithaca early double gun, the gun is a 12 gauge made on a 16 gauge frame, has DT with modified Brown Rotary Bolt, and was Engraved by Kraus & Spangler. The gun was made in the 1920's, unfortunately that is all the documented information I have been able to acquire about this gun, nobody seems to know who did the Oak leaf checkering on the old guns stocks. William Brophy owned a similar LeFever/Ithaca double gun with similar Engraving and Oak Leaf checkering. The gun is incredible in both the Grouse woods and Pheasant fields, it seriously kills flying birds.

The LeFever/Ithaca double gun is part of my American Classic double gun collection, not for sale at any price.

The pictures of the detailed engraving do not due the Classic American double gun justice.

It's true: 16 ga, carries like a 20 and hits like a 12.
