Introducing the latest in our Model 37® family of shotguns
The Model 37 - 28 Gauge, available by special order only and built on its own exclusive frame with either 26" or 28" barrel lengths.

The 28 Gauge retains the famed M37 reputation of being an easy gun to handle and point, and its reliable bottom-eject action makes it a favorite of both right and left handed shooters.

The Fancy "A" grade gun is always in stock and available for immediate delivery, however, the Fancy "AA" and "AAA" grades are custom "built to order" only. Call us at

Anyone else besides myself own one of the Ithaca 28 gauge Model 37 shotguns?

Besides the 28 gauge Ithaca Model 37 I have the following 28 gauge pump shotguns.Winchester Model 12,Remington Model 870,Browning BPS and Browning Model 12.Of them all the Ithaca Model 37 is my favourite.There is just something magicial about the 28 gauge Ithaca Model 37 in my opinion. :)

I just wish they would manufacture it in an ultralight version as well as the featherweight.If an ultralight version was available I know of at least one that would be headed to Nova Scotia. :)

Yes I am a big fan of the 28 gauge.Have 4 autoloaders,4 pumps,2 doubles,2 over/unders and 2 single shots.

I like my hunting 28 gauges to be as light as I can get them,thats why I would love to have an ultralight 28 gauge Model 37.

My 28 gauge Ithaca is the Grade A version with Grade A wood and a 26 inch barrel.I like the shorter barrels for hunting and they are a bit(not much) but lighter.

What version are you thinking about purchasing for a 28 gauge Ithaca Model 37?

I bought a 28 ga last Feb. and had not fired it until this past Saturday when Dove season opened here in Alabama. Beautiful gun, great drop. Unfortunately major problems. Every time gun fired, it jamed. Calling Ithaca tomorrow for advice. I'm sure I will have to send it in. Real disappointed as I have been waiting since Feb. to use it. Now with dove season here, I can't use it. Hopefully a good service dept. will get the problem fixed quickly.

Hope they took care of your problem. I had a problem with my 28 as well but they fixed it right away. I upgraded the Fancy AA Grade model to a AAA stock. The checkering on the stock was not defined with the stock finish bleeding into the field. While I had it at Ithaca, I had them add a nice mid bead and smooth up the action for me. It felt like it wanted to hang up when I ejected a shell.

It seems to work fine now and the stock is beautiful.

Good luck with your repair. Zak took care of me and gave it his personal attention.

Thanks Zak,
