My brother got this pic on grouse hunt the other day.

Kind of a neat story behind this one. Metal is from 1938. It came into the factory at some point after being on fire for refinishing work. I guess it sat in the rack for quite awhile and no one could be contacted on it. So my grandfather (dad’s dad) inquired into it and ended up buying it. He knew the boys in the wood shop pretty well and had the wood added.

It’s dollar grade. Same grade of wood and checkering patterns. It had a horn grip cap. It’s pretty nice stuff. He had my uncles initials engraved on the trigger guard. It’s got 2 barrels with matching numbers. The gun has shot more game than probably some whole collections. It has a extra full choke barrel that shoots a awesome slug. We grew up on deer, rabbits, pheasants, squirrels, etc. This was really the only shotgun my dad had for quite awhile.

He pulled it back out this year.

Neat story. These were the shotguns that we grew up with. Brings back lots of fun hunts. The really neat ones had the corncob forearm.

Is this for everyone to show their Dad’s 37? I don’t think I have a pic of my dad with his but the gun is with me now.
No fancy wood or horn but it’s got a beautiful Poly-choke!

I don't have a picture of Dad's Model 37, because he never had one. But I do have his Remington Model 17. Manufactured in 1928. The only shotgun he ever had.

The top picture is how I got it when he passed. The bottom is after I had it refinished by Doug Carpenter.

Great story, beautiful gun, and so glad to see it's back out in the field. Hunt 'em up!
