This was my grandfather's that he used for hunting for many years. I'm not sure of the actuall date of production but I'm guessing late 50's early 60's from other serial numbers that were dated on the web. Anyway, it's an Ithaca Model 37 Featherlight. I think it's in great shape for it's age compared to others I see at shows that are rusted, or have many blemishes along with crappy stocks. What do you guys think? I'm going to take the gun out sometime this week to the range to try it out. The only thing I added was the recoil pad..just yesterday. **Edit- I just called Ithaca and was told it was made in 1957. Retail was $58 or so according to the rep. Here is a shot of it with the rest of my starting collection.
