DescriptionThe serial number for this shotgun falls into the serial number range of South Vietnamese contract Model 37 riot shotguns (50,000-71,999). However, this shotgun was apparently not delivered to South Vietnam since Ithaca marked the front receiver ledge and barrel with a different serial number (S9254), a serial number that falls into the serial number range of a 1963 U.S. government contract for 22,000 Model 37 riot shotguns (serial number S1,000-S23,000). Standard Ithaca barrel markings, with 2 3/4" chamber, choked full, parkerized finish. The "P" proof is marked on the barrel and receiver, with a questionable "U.S." stamped on the right side of the receiver. 16 groove forearm with oil finished pistol grip stock, sling swivels, canvas sling, and plastic buttplate.

ConditionArsenal refurbished. The shotgun retains 98% parkerized finish with some minor slide wear and some finished over scattered minor pitting. The wood is excellent with a few minor handling marks.
