I think some very simple changes could go a long way...

For example, the "Ladies" stock with the short LOP could easily be renamed. The Ithaca "Tactical" stock or simply the "short LOP" or "12" LOP stock". There are many advantages to guys like me of average build where the standard LOP is too much. In the colder and winter, with heavy clothes when alot of hunting is done. On the tactical side of things, a shorter LOP is great with a LBV or modular vest, even a shooting vest. These kinds of clothing are worn for competition by civies, not just LEO and military. So rather than marketing the "Ladies" stock, go ahead and inform the buyers of the benefits not just to ladies and youth shooters, but from the hunting end, or for a home owner that needs a shorter and quicker pointing firearm, or guys like me who are of average build and find themselves really stretching to achieve a proper shooting stance with a 14" + LOP.

Hard to sell a guy a "Ladies" short LOP stock! ;)

I would like to see the grooved, beavertail type forend, like those Ithaca offered in the 50s and 60s, as an option on the new model 37s.

An extension to the rear of the forend would be nice.Especially for those with shorter arms. :)

I think they should work with Blackhawk and come up with a tactical stock with the recoil reduction system. And if they really wanted to be innovative they could come up with a traditional style stock with a recoil reduction system. That would be a bestseller guaranteed.

Ripjack, I think youre right about the aftermarket stocks. A large part of that is up to folks like BlackHawk who will do the R&D when there is significant interest in a particular firearm.. Sort of a catch 22 when aftermarket support helps drive interest...

But hopefully with the forum we can affect someof that! ;)

I would LOVE to see the Model 51 semi-auto back in production. This was a great gun and I believe there is a place in the market, if the price point isn't prohibitive.

I'd like to see this too! Especially supported with a couple different barrel options, and perhaps one in the 20" range, maybe a 22" vent rib? and a threaded magazine tube for magazine extensions like Nordic Comp for example! A guy could have a decent competition gun! ;)
