Yup - that's right. What we have here is a genuine original LAPD commem. Ithaca Mod 37 in excellent condition. Appears that the action has been opened a few times but the barrels look unfired. I bought it from a dealer/friend (yes that's possible) and he said he bought it and several others from a local retired LAPD cop who bought them new. He said they are all unfired. Nice gold engraving, "City of Los Angeles 200th Anniversary 1781 - 1981" and nice engraving on one side and " To Protect and Serve" on the other with the LA City seal, LAPD seal, and the LAPD Pistol and Athletic Club seal. Also very cool miniature of a LA police officer badge on the bottom of the stock. The wood is obviously high end select and the finish is also very nice. Nice lockable leather covered presentation case with a big LAPS seal on the top. I am open to all offers and will respond seriously to serious offers and not so seriously to the others. I'm just trying to get my gun $$ back into my ARs. I also have an Colt MK IV Mod 70 from the same LAPD commem. series for sale on Handguns. If you buy both you also get the LAPD commem. Buck knife in a walnut case FREE! And yes - its unfired too. Theres some of these around for $2500 - $3000 but I only need $1500/offer out of this one. Only 1300 made and the kicker is this one is #37! Thats right - serial # 0037 - very cool IMHO. Not only very low s# but the only one with the same serial # and Mod #! How bout that? Prolly the most collectable of all of these!
