The Ithaca Gun Company Model 37 Home Defense pump-action shotgun comes in 12-gauge or 20-gauge. The 12-gauge has 18.5” and 20” length barrel options, while the 20-gauge is 18.5” only. The barrels are lengthened with forcing cones, reducing shot deformation and recoil. All back to a 3” chamber in a machined steel receiver. These will handle either 2 ¾” or 3” shells.

Note: Model 37s have been made for eons. While no longer in production, past models included 16-gauge and 28-gauge. These had 2 ¾” chambers and could only handle 2 ¾” shells!

The 20” barrel gun has an 8-shot capacity while the 18.5” barrel gun has a 5-shot capacity. Each configuration comes with a trio of Briley choke tubes (full, improved and modified).

In all cases, you get a brass bead front site, tube magazine under the barrel, a nice American-style curved grip stock, and a thick black rubber pad in back. The curved trigger has a 4-to-6-pound trigger pull and sits inside a classic racetrack oval trigger guard. The trigger sits in a steel trigger housing. The safety is at the back of the trigger guard.

No matter how you get one configured, it has a walnut stock. But the nice thing is you can get it with its big metal components having either a matte blued or a nitride finish.

The magazine is loaded from below. Ejection happens there too!

Ithaca Guns has been in business over 125 years and is located in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. Model 37s are Made in USA.
