If this Ithaca 37 side folder is what you are looking at, the Choate website makes no distinction between 12 or 20 gauge. It may not matter if I am seeing the second picture correctly, but you could call Choate at 1-800-972-6390, Monday - Friday, 7:00 am - 3:30 pm CST.

Based on Numrich Gun Parts listing two different item numbers, I will guess that the regular synthetic 12 gauge and the regular 20 gauge stocks will not interchange, although these Ithaca specifications show that they must be very similar. Good luck and welcome to the Basement, kdub420!

ITHACA 37, Numrich Item No. 812520, Stock, 12 Ga., Synthetic, w/o Recoil Pad, Retail Price: $130.60

Good deal. The Choate website makes no distinction between 12 or 20 gauge for those stocks either. For the record, please post their reply to your call. Thanks.

Well, called Choat and no luck. Nice (and knowledgeable) lady told me they don't make anything for the Ithaca 20g. She also didn't know who did :(
Time for plan b-when I figure out what that is :?
later,
kdub

I'm baaaack,
went and ordered a John Marson Black Warrior stock for the Ithaca model 37 12g and tried it on my 20g Featherweight for size.It fit! Don't know if it works for everyone-mine is a 1969 Featherweight 20 g. Put 100 rnds thru it still tight.
I did add a second nut as a locker.
thanx all,
kdub

Nice, kdub420! The Ithaca specifications show that the regular 12 gauge Ithaca stocks and the regular 20 gauge Ithaca stocks must be very similar. Since the John Masen #BW01X, Black Warrior full length pistol grip shotgun stock w/recoil pad for Ithaca 37, $41.95 fits both of your Ithaca guns, I guess that rear of the receivers of both gauges are the same. I had supposed that the receiver of the 12 gauge would have been a smidgen wider than the receiver of the 20 gauge. Did your John Masen stock fit exactly the same on both of your guns, sir? Thanks.

Wish I'd found that listing-would have saved me a lot of headaches!
I only own a 20g so I can't talk about the 12. The stock went on no problems. On one side there is less than 1sheet of office laser copier paper thickness proud up from the receiver.I would chalk that up to build quality. Had to trim mold flashing in a couple spots-again build quality.All in All I'm pretty satisfied,
thanx,
ken
