Do you have a bayonet to mount?

Wish you had this last week. We had a 1917, post war bayonet at work that they only wanted $80 for. If I see another I'll let you know. Fine looking shotgun btw.

Assume it has a disconnector and won't slam fire?

Not really sure. Could not find or afford an original so this was the next best thing.

Thanks. That was pretty funny.

I was a little surprised that it was looser than I thought it should be. A quick google search that this is common. A little use of electrical tape and much of that looseness is gone. It is locking in good.

Can someone explain the relationship between Inland and Ithaca concerning the M37?

The current reincarnation of Inland contracted with Ithaca to build this shotgun:

The parts are the same for the new and old 37s. One of our gunsmiths spent a week at the factory when they opened.

I shot skeet for a while with a 1970's or 1960's Ithaca. One day the oldest guy that would come out and shoot(retired attorney), brought out a WWII/police surplus model that looked minty. I was impressed that he brought it out just to impress me shooting my Ithaca against their fancy guns.

It looked a lot like what you have there. Lots of parked metal.
