Post subject:  Just bought a new Ithaca 37

Hi guys

I just bought a new Ithaca 37. I have to say this gun is much lighter and slimmer than I thought. It’s a home defense version with synthetic stock (plan to swap it out for wood furniture). Gun is sharp as can be minus the slide release/lock. It has some rust on that spot and that spot only. I sprayed some CLP and only got a little off. Anyone know a good way to remove it without marking up the finish? It’s matte blued. Thanks.

Saturate some 0000 steel wool with Barricade, rub the spot gently. Works for me.

Thanks I’ll give that a shot when I get home. I also used some barricade in a cloth. Still a little came off. I’m always hesitant with the steel wool especially on blued surfaces but I’ll give it a try.

Kind of odd that’s the one spot on a brand new gun that has rust.

I think the slide release is maybe hardened and doesn't like taking finish or is a different alloy steel. Seen it on the NY guns too. I've just cleaned them up, removing the finish and keeping them well oiled. Looks fine.

Thanks guys.

I’m just amazed how light this is versus my Mossberg 590A1 I had.

So I wet some 0000 steel wool with barricade. Gently rubbed it and did not get anymore off. It doesn’t feel coarse whatsoever but smooth. I’d just touch it up with a birch wood and Casey pen but I don’t want the rust to resurface.

Have you considered contacting Ithaca Gun Company?

Does it have a barrel length magazine?

It is yes. 7+1 capacity. Barrel is removable too.

I can't say enough about the very positive response and service that I received from the new Ithaca Gun Company. My new M37 had a feeding problem and after a phone call, I was sent a shipping box to return the gun to them. In a reasonable period of time, the gun was returned to me in wonderful condition; cycling super slick at no charge to me.

I did register the gun with Ithaca at time of purchase and the factory did look up that registration.
