The Model 37 has gained the reputation of being an easy gun to handle and point and its reliable bottom-eject action has long made it a favorite of both right and left-handed shooters. The M37 features a receiver that is machined from a single block of steel and etched with classic game scene engraving. Ithaca's solderless barrel system gives the 37 the strongest, truest barrel of any shotgun and a lengthened forcing cone reduces recoil and shot deformation. The Deerslayer variant of the Model 37 provides a fully-rifled or smoothbore barrel. This shotgun features a 24" fully-rifled barrel, a red bar front sight with a missing rear sight, a Weaver-style scope-mounting base, and a cross-bolt safety. Its stock and metal are in good condition and its bore is in very good condition.
