  • I have a Mdl 37 Ithaca Featheweight w/ Polychoke, factory replaced tiger walnut stock w/ recoil pad can place a value on this?

    The serial number is 357184. This gun was sent back and reconditioned at Ithaca in the 1970's. They damaged the original stock and replaced it with the tiger walnut stock.It also has a polychoke on it.

      Welcome to F&S Steve Szabo
      Your Tiger Stock Ithaca Model 37 Featherweight was made in 1951(357184) I'm Guessing it a 12ga 2.3/4" Chamber. Would be worth more in a 20Ga, 28Ga or 410 Bore.
      Most Upland Hunters or Duck Hunters added a Poly-Chokes it was a $30.00 add-on
      This is an unseen Value $300.00+/- Conduction is every thing. The tiger Stock is a +.

          Steve, I see them at gun shows in nice condition for around $600. Unfortunately, yours is so old you can never get an after market barrel for it. Ithaca changed the thread size/pitch - I don't remember the S.N. cut off but I am sure a dealer would know. I had one as my primary gun for several years. 12ga mod. I shot Remington 'punkin balls and had good accuracy for 60 or 70 yds. It kicked like a mule.

            I run across one in nice shape once in a while, for $4-$500. I have a'73 , 20 gauge mod 37 that I wouldn't sell for anything. I'd keep it and shoot the snot out of it, if it were me. They're great guns.

              Won't get that much for one with a barrel booger. That really wrecked the value. Sad but true. Even the fancy wood won't compensate much. I'd say try to get three hundred bucks and see what happens. Or look for another barrel in good shape. Problem there is most of them are full choke and those are of limited use as they won't handle steel shot. An IC choked barrel with vent rib would be great. Added to that fancy wood it could sell as a skeet or clays gun. Full choke even with a rib is not a popular trap gun because they are a pain to load on the line (shove the shell up the magazine and then rattle the slide for every shot).

                What gauge is it and do you have a pic of it?

                  Just seen one of these on gunbroker about a day ago, it had a replaced stock which looked really nice without a poly choke for 475.00. I seen another original ithica model 37 for 315.00

                    He has a very low serial # so none of the late model barrels will fit. Can't remember the serial # cut off but I am sure a gunsmith or Ithaca could tell you.

                      Tree you should tell people that is a dealer value, market value on his shotgun is almost twice that.

                            Jimbo, Treestand appears to be one of the many casualties of the transition to new site format. Haven't heard from him since before Christmas.
