Just read an article about the latest version of the 37. $950 seems high. Has anyone seen one?

    I have an Ithaca model 37 20ga. featherlight made in 1972.

    Can someone tell me what the differences are(if any)between a featherlight and a featherwieght model 37 and whether one has more value over the other?Thank you.

    At what serial number do the threads on old Ithaca barrels not fit the new Ithaca model 37? Thanks for any help.

    Is anyone familiar with these shotguns? When did the circular grooved 'corncob' forearm change to the smooth modern version?

    Same gun. There is an ultralight that usually sells for a little more.

    As to Ambrose's point, the Ultralite has an aluminum receiver.

    the featherlight had a more modern(though questionably better) stock. The Ithica 37 in unaltered 20 guage is sleeper for collecting - I think it will grow in appreciation and value.
