How about a thread where we can all post up pics of our Model 37s?

My two little sawed-off guns...

On top is a 1961 vintage 20ga M37 and on the bottom is 16ga born in 1956, both have barrels cut down to 19-inches.

Image

The second pic is a bit older as things have changed around a tad in the last few months.

On top is the same 20ga as pictured above before it had its snout shortened, then a 1965 vintage 12ga, middle is an absolutely beautiful and pristine 1952 built 16ga with Poly Choke (its since been sold). A 1970 vintage 12ga Riot Gun that is slowly being turned into a Trench Gun forgery ...and to mess it all up an 870 Super Mag project.

I'd like to say the Trench Gun is my favorite, but its an ongoing project, kinda a basket case and I spend a lot of time over thinking the thing. Its only ben fired a few times to make sure everything is working properly, so its definitely not the most used.

It seems that the little 20ga goes out with us every time we go shooting and has even completed a couple rounds of skeet, so it is the most used by a long shot and at this point probably the most loved. I imagine that once a trench gun is complete in the little collection that will be the favorite and most used... by me anyway

Those are very nice! I bought mine with a sawed off barrel, 20" I have to clean it up tomorrow because I was out hunting with it this past weekend. I'll put up a picture or two of it.

Just picked her up about an hour ago...

A 1969 vintage Ithaca Model 37 Trench Gun. All seems right, the bore looks like a mirror. SN is not in the range of guns that went to Vietnam, seller said he thought the gun came out of a prison armory.
