Ithaca Model 37 Featherlight Upland Shotgun


The M37 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. At the new Ithaca Gun Company, we have brought a previously unknown level of precision and strength to the venerable Ithaca pump gun.

The Ithaca upland gun is available in 12 gauge, 16 gauge, 20 gauge, and 28 gauge.

The Model 37 Featherlight®

•A receiver that is machined from a single block of steel (or aluminum)

•Solderless Barrel System : strongest, truest barrel of any shotgun

•A lengthened forcing cone to reduce recoil and shot deformation

•Crisp 4-6lb. trigger pull

•The classic game scene engraving

•Choke threads that are machined true and straight (Briley Chokes)

•Fancy black walnut stock and forend





Ithaca Solderless Barrel System close-up


The new Ithaca upland shotgun sets itself apart from the pack in this crucial way: It has absolutely no soldering or other heat-induced joints. Our Ithaca SBS (Solderless Barrel System) vent rib barrel is the straightest, strongest barrel you can get because it is entirely a machined component--that means the barrel has never warped from heat and it does not require any corrective straightening. The attachment of the vent rib to the barrel is accomplished with a single screw, allowing easy replacement. This approach to barrel making also allows us to use a better grade of steel than what is commonly found on shotguns.

Originally drawn by Bill McGraw--perhaps the most well known of the Ithaca Gun Company factory engravers--the game scene above has graced the sides of Model 37® receivers since Ithaca started producing the gun in 1937. This game scene comes standard on all new Ithaca Featherlight® shotguns and is now precision machined to ensure uniform depth and position and a crisp overall appearance.
