Looks like Ithaca is back.

Wish they would come out with an LAPD spec M37 DSPS. No disconnector would be nice, but I could live with one.

Guess till then I'll just have to suffer with my thrashed 37 M&P.

If we thought they had a real chance of getting some law enforcement sales, we'd start making accessories for them. M37 was always a fine tactical shotgun, and often prefered by motor units because of the single port at the bottom of the receiver (one less hole for road dirt to enter).

We'll wait and see for now.

I love the bottom eject, great for lefties as well as righties. I heard they will be introducing a low end set of doubles as well as a semi auto.

hmmm, they're formed under an LLC. I wonder what the parent company is?

There is only ONE Ithaca I want, the Ithaca Roadblocker 10 GA.. Had a chance a few years back on one new in box at a great price, been regretting that ever since. I think when that gun came out they were marketing it to law enforcement as guaranteed to stop a vehicle with one shot, with that matte grey finish and solid build, it just feels badass.

I remember my old 37 w/o disconnect... That thing could throw lead scary-fast. Just careful not to have a hang-fire. :D

Now that would be an official BFG.

We had one of those in the shop about 6 months ago. It was a freakin beast. Really heavy, but it put a big smile on anyone's face who weilded it....

I was chatting with a FFL at the Del Mar gun show about the reproduction Ithaca WW2 "Trench gun" 12 gauge w/ bayo lug he had for sale. It has a 2 3/4" chamber and can cycle/fire all rounds while holding down the trigger(Is that what you guys mean by disconnect?), he said careful around the exposed hammer which can bite if you're not careful. The heat shield is bonus tacti-cool points!

It's a cool design! I do like how the shells eject downward. It's different.

EDIT: The shotgun I saw at the gun show looked like this:

Did I see a Winchester repro(it was brand new w/ modern packaging)? I could almost SWEAR I read Ithaca on the packaging , the receiver was minimal of markings. But, shotguns with exposed hammers are no where to be found on Ithaca's website. Weird.

May be a Chinese copy of the trench gun that went on the market ~1 year ago or so. Imho, ithaca is not the maker.

Yeah, that's what a disconnect does, keeps you from having TOO much fun. :D

For now, they're only selling direct. There's no dealer network set up yet (most gunshops don't know they're even back in business). According to the website, dealers will be added in the future. For now, contact them direct and have one shipped to your FFL.

The particular gun you're talking about/looking at is a copy of the Winchester Model 97 pump. The same Chinese company does make a copy of the M37 too.

Now that sounds like an Ithaca I would like to own.

Looks like a few new offerings. If that riot gun didnt have a disconnector, I'd be all over that like stink on shlit.

Somewhere's around here I have a couple of the ultra-rare slamfire hammers for the newer Ithacas. That, plus the standard slam-fire action release and you'd be good-to-go.

I am not a huge fan of Ithacas for the simple reason that my department issues them and they are not in the greatest of shape. I keep an Vang Comped 870p bedside and always wish i could take it on duty lol.

I'm not a fan of any weapon that is not in good shape that I may need to depend on. That being said, an M37 DSPS or M&P in trained hands could lay down fire like no 870 or Mossy. Or Benelli for that matter.

And I'm an 870 guy myself.

Looks like there hasn't been much said about the Ithaca m37 lately so I will add my two cents. I am going to pick up today my used but very nice Ithaca 37 DSPS. This will be my second one. I think it was made druing the late 60's and belonged to an unknown police department. On the side it has B.P.D stamped I am sure that could be any of the hunderds of PD's whos city starts with "B". It has the rifled sights and a 20 inch barrel. I saw a few more Ithaca's for sale but didn't pay too much attention to them. If you are interested in purchasing one they are located in Duarte, Ca. Here is the name and address and phone number. Give them a call I am sure they will help you. I think the price migh be $350. Gunrunners 2160 E Huntington Drive Unit D Duarte, CA 91010 626-358-7711 They are closed on Mondays but open Sundays.

You might call Ithaca and see of older fire control parts interchange with new guns;)

That would probably be the Norinco/IAC 1897 M97 Trench.
