Hear, hear, Grousen...what you said!Grousen said:Yippee!!!
Seeing as I have already arranged for a new Ohio made 20 gauge Model 37, I was quite pleased to see they are selling 20 gauge fully rifled barrels. I definitely need one of those too! It looks like the new Ithaca Gun Company has made a long overdue upgrade to the open sights on the Deerslayer barrels. The open sights were my only complaint on the Deerslayers that were being sold from the early 70's and on.
I have a sneaking suspicion Ithaca Gun Co. will not be letting any grass grow under their feet in getting the 16 gauge M37 out. I would guess that will probably happen in the next 12-18 months. Please let me stress I have NO INSIDE INFORMATION on this, it's just my S.W.A.G., scientific wild a$$ guess!
It's a good feeling knowing Ithaca Gun is back in the game, and producing a HIGH QUALITY AMERICAN MADE shotgun. Dang, I can't wait for that 20 gauge now. I really do think when people experience FIRST HAND just how slick these actions are, the wonderful trigger, and the gorgeous fit, finish and wood these new Ithaca 37s have, many will rekindle their love affair with Ithaca pump action shotguns. I know I surely have. I have four very nice Browning O/Us that haven't been getting much use this past year, because I am having too much fun shooting the Ithaca pumps on skeet, trap, and sporting clays.
There's a lot to be said about living a second childhood in one's fifties.
