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 fancy black walnut stock and forend is finely checkered. This 12-gauge features a red raybar front sight, a trigger guard safety, and a fixed full choke. There are some light rust spots on the shotgun's barrel. Over all, its wood and metal are in good condition and its bore is in very good condition.
