Ithaca M37 Defense Shotgun opinions?
« on: March 20, 2016, 05:22:52 PM »
Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has any experience or opinion on the Ithaca Model 37 Defense shotgun. I would be looking at the 5-shot model, with synthetic furniture. Reading the specs on it, it seems quite robust, steel receiver and barrel etc. Bottom load and eject which is good for ambi shooters. Thoughts?

Why not a Mossburg 500 or Remington 870?

Reason I ask, is they both are proven & have been around for decades, plenty of after market support. Why reinvent the wheel, is there a blue light special on the Ithaca? Even if there was I wouldn't think saving the money is worth it IMO. That is unless you intend this to be a dumb brother in law gun. You know the brother in law that will show up when things have went to H with nothing.....

Haha nope not for a dumb BIL gun, but was offered it in partial trade for a chain saw, so was just curious.

If its a deal, then why not?

Can someone ever have enough shotguns?

But if it isn't, then what Shawn said

Take your pick, Remy 870 or Mossy 500 series

My fav is the Mossberg. I own several

Agreed, anything that shoots on a trade is usually good....
