Walt, hard to tell if it's yours or not. Is yours missing? ;) The woman and gun are somewhat silhouetted in the photo and no details are apparent except for the skinny tube, vent rib, yoke and barrel attaching mechanisms that distinguish it from other pumps. Yes, Walt's is the cream of the crop when it comes to Ithaca M37 28s and a longstanding source of envy that money can cure. :) Gil

My preference would be a stock like Walt's and a plain barrel. Money can buy the stock, but not the barrel. I tried. A vent rib on a game gun is an affectation and not a necessity.

Gil - the barrels are made on a twin turret CNC Okuma lathe that turns the barrel profile and mills the vent rib posts all in one operation. They would have to majorly alter the program to produce a barrel without the vent rib posts. While I take your point about vent ribs on field guns, I can understand why they declined your request.

I would be happy if only they offered it with an English stock. What a sweet little grouse gun that would be...
Found one today online at the Cabela's Gun Library with English stock.

LOP is 13.5" though. Looks like it may be grade AA wood, not sure it is close though. 25" bbl is listed but they only come in 24" and 26" so not sure what is up with that.

I have MEC 9000 reloaders in 20, 16 and 12 but only the 16 is worth reloading for anymore. The 28 would be the other one.
