Pics of some of my retro shotguns.

The Remington's a model1 10 and a model 11. 100 years old and still shotoing great.
" />

And the Trio of Stevens Faux Trench Guns. Each one was a rescued misfit unwanted shotgun restored to trench glory. They are great guns. The double hump is smooth as glass.

Do the Stevens scatterguns have slam fire capability? I have seen a few used ones in the past, if I have some coins in my pocket, I might look closer in the future. I especially like the middle one.

I just added this to my retro shotgun stable. It is a faux Stevens 620A trench gun with ORIGINAL Winchester handguard. The handguard is worth more than I paid for SG, so will sell it, buy a correct repro Stevens handguard and maybe have the whole thing parkerized.

Just a note for those wanting to make fake Stevens trench guns.

You can get the same gun for less if you look under store brands like Sears "Ranger" Or Wards Western Field model 30, etc.

A clean, already adultered (no collecter value) Stevens 520A (Sears Ranger) on Gunbroker (no affiliation) now that someone better buy before I do

With a polychoke, it begs to be removed and cut down.

Just ordered a repro bayo mount/heat shield and 03A3 rear sling swivel from Sarco for my '97 Winchester. Will advise when it comes in.

Found what looks like a great host gun for $120 if anyone needs one.

Not my sale.

Put this in the shotgun forum, but seeing as the newest one is more than 40-years old, figured I might put it here too.


Little collection of ole Ithaca M37s



L to R...

1940 vintage gun/basket case/trenchie project - the stock off ePay cost more than the gun did off GB... heat shield is one of the awesome East Taylor reproduction pieces.

1941 vintage Riot Gun

1943 vintage Riot Gun

1956 vintage 16ga

1961 vintage 20ga

1969 vintage (real) M37 Trench Gun

1970 vintage Riot Gun

...and a 1971 vintage Riot Gun (kinda cool has a factory SKT choked barrel - not CYL)

The two trenchies... the "real" one, a 1969 vintage gun on top and the "fake" one, a 1940 vintage gun that was (and kinda still a basket case ...we'll call it a "work in progress").



...and a little bit-o-history on the 1940 trenchie project

The stock you see on that 1940 trench gun project took a couple years to find and was $142 on ePay... only paid $137 for the gun off gunbroker. Also have to make sure there is little or not pitting at all inside the bore; they're strong guns, but the barrel is pretty thin and pitting can really be the kiss-of-death for an Ithaca. Speaking of that 1940 gun, here are a couple "before" pics, they're the ones from gunbroker, kinda kick myself for not taking any before the work started, but its all I have at this point.

The gun was pretty haggard, but pretty much all there (say for the stock - learning experience). The gun functioned and fired fine, just had a bunch of pitting at the snout end of the bore and a bit of a bulge in it (that was OK as I had every intention of having it cut) and the stock was really buggered. I got a new stock that needed "final fitting" and have learned I am not much of a wood worker. Still have the stock and haven't touched it, so will probably try to sell it off sometime to someone more talented than I (not hard to find those people;). Found the "new" stock off ePay as mentioned. Had the barrel cut buy our own GunCat here on the boards and have used Naval Jelly to strip it all down. Was thinking of trying my hand at bluing, but believe the pitting to be a tad too much so will have it parkerized one day. The East Taylor bayonet mount and heat shield is worth every penny and I look forward to getting into Winchesters one day too and using their other mounts. Still have a few parts to collect for it and then have it all parked. Will be a "pretend" prototype Ithaca trench gun.

These are the pics of it off GB

Excellent Work - I love to see those old rag tag shotguns brought back

I just saw an Ithaca police shotgun semi locally, Apparently a factory park job but still has the roll engraved "game scene" receiver (The only part I didn't like about it) for $350. I might go back and get it.

Home parkerizing is pretty easy if you get a sand/bead blaster, and a stainless steel tank on a BBQ grill -
Brownells kit works well.

Also you can go the route of Alumahyde II dark Park gray - did that on one of my Stevens, nobody can tell the difference. In fact my buddy that helps me do parkerizing asked me why I didn't call him over to do it with other parkerizing work and I handed him the can and said because it s"This".
He was like "wow - Looks good".

Ran accross these at the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, WY last week. I thought they'd be of interest to this crew - especially the Remington Model 11 with the wood handguards and the bayonet lug:

OK I promised myself this is the last Retro shotgun for a while

" />

I went to my local dealer and he had this lonely Remington 31 with a damn Polychoke on it. Only $200 cash out the door. I just had to neuter that choke and bring to riot-type length.

Its the last of the Retro shotguns on my hit list.

So I have the Remington models 10, 11, 31, and 870. I got to say the action is smooth as silk on this 31.

Do you know if the barrel/tube clamp was one piece or 2?

From what I remember, it was one piece. Keep in mind, last time I was there was 2010.
