    Default Ithaca 37 in 28 gauge

    Has anyone had a chance to get their hands on one yet?
    Being a 37 fan for years, this one's on my list to get I think.

    I’d love to take one for a test drive, especially if it’s scaled to the gauge.

    I had one. A 20 gauge feartherlight was my dad's grouse gun and I always wanted one. I enjoyed the 28 gauge a lot, but when I had a chance to turn it into a 28 gauge O/U I made the swap. Late last season I bought a 20 gauge Ultra featherlight.

    Can't say I have ever held one but I like where you are going with the 28ga! In recent years the 28ga has been my go to gun for upland (woodcock, grouse & bunnies). They are a joy to carry all day long and with mine being a scaled frame to boot it just makes it all that much more enjoyable.

    Here's a video on the 28 gauge. Jim goes into it about half way into the video.

    At present I only have one 28 gauge. It's an old Harrison-Richardson single shot. It only weighs about 4 1/2 pounds and is lovely to carry around.

    I have a few on my list I'd like to get though and the Ithaca is one of them.

    I have been using a 28 gauge O/U for the last few years off and on. Mine is made on a true 28 gauge mini frame and carry’s like a dream in the uplands. 3/4 of on once of 7.5s is deadly on woodcock. Also really enjoy it for rabbits and a occasional pheasant hunt with no problems. My only suggestion for anyone looking to buy one is just make sure it’s built on a true scaled to frame 28 gauge, otherwise it will be over weight and at that point you might as well be carrying a 20.

    Somewhere I have a photo of the 28 gauge Ithaca. I'll see what I can find. Here is the 20 gauge Ultra Featherlight.

    I'm looking for a single shot 28 gauge for my son to start with. I have 2 years at least before he can be mentored so I just troll the online sites.
