I've been thinking about buying one of the new ones made in Ohio to go along with my older ones . Have any of you guys shot the new ones or own one . A wee tad pricey they are but if they're well made who cares . Thank you .

The 28 gauge would be the only appealing one.

Browning BPS is an alternative, and cheaper too.

Otherwise, I’ll stick with my old original Models.

I was unaware of these new 37s. It's certainly nice to see an alternative to the ubiquitous 870. I'd definitely be interested and I'd also like to see additional models come available, i.e. a defensive model.

$1200 and up? Wow. I love the 37, but....

Pass.

I have four 12's and a 20 that I don't use much. Mostly the 20 for grouse.

What I "need" is an inexpensive, used single shot .410 for all those hundreds of rounds of #7 1/2 I have..... smile

I've got this one, but I bought it in the early 1980s. It's made by the original Ithaca Gun Company in New York. Shoots great.

I used to have a 20 gauge sport model, too, with a long, Modified choke, barrel. Sadly, I sold it many years ago. Still have this LAPD model, though.

My early 50s 20 and 16 weigh 6# 1 and 2 ounces. I’ve read the new ones are better than 7#, or at least close to 7.

I found everything about 20ga great except 7lb plus few ounce weight. Not a bad thing if one contemplates shooting 3" shells. Far better quality gun than Remington 870. Strengths: good quality dense walnut (does not crack at back of receiver/trigger guard), quality Pachmayr recoil pad, excellent barrel finish with proprietary vent rib construction, Briley choke system (can use Browning Invector Plus chokes). Second hand guns in excellent condition 12ga or 20ga can be had for around $600. These will be little harder to find than old guns from Ithaca or King Ferry NY because due to initial cost not as many have been sold. Think of it as Remington Model 17 on steroids. One 20ga sold quickly this week for $600 at Gunsinternational. You snooze, you loose.

TRH: That LAPD model is just what I'm looking for. I will attempt to find one. Thanks!

Beautiful gun, Whitebird.

A local gun store had 1 in stock last time I was in. Give them a call & ask for Brian.
