Corn cob forearm, mint, made back in the 60's, not a bit of wear or blemish to be found, really and smooth like only a 37 can be...Smoooth. My uncle has had it for years and years.. I've always wanted it and he wouldn't sell. Finally he caved, $300. I love the thing!

Maybe a new rabbit or grouse gun.

My dad has a M37ga. 12 that I will probably end up with one day, and grandfather has one in 20ga.

What say you?

Come on! All the gun maniacs here and nobdy comments on a thread about one of the greatest pump guns of all time?

I do agree, they are a very nice gun. My personal favorite pump gun even. I like the bottom feed / eject, and the smooth handling. I have one in 12, 12 with 20" & rifle sites, 16, and 20 gauge. I really like the 16, as it shoots just the same as the 12, but it is super light. I took mine pheasant hunting in South Dakota this year and it was great.

As for price, at auction I saw one in 20 go for $400, and then I got my 16 for $125. Very good condition, dumb bidders..? I believe the last one I booked in 12 was about $200 to $250. I'd pay $300 for a really nice one all day long.

I looked and saw the wide spread in prices too.. But this one is dead clean. Nothing sugesting it's older than I. I like the corn cob fore end too. Nostalgic looking. And yes they are light.

I've had a 37Featherlight in 20ga. that I bought new 35 years ago when I was 15. Killed everything from rabbits to geese to deer with it.

It was the only shotgun I had or needed until about 5 years ago when I bought a Benelli Nova in 12ga. & I didn't fire the first round through it until a couple months ago.

That 37 will be with me for the rest of my life. Never had problem one with it and it just gets smoother the more I use it. Great shotgun.

No doubt a great gun but shells are getting harder to find these days.

I got it! I got it!

Awesome... Light as a feather. Plain barrel just enough se to give it a great feel and smooth action but never abused and well kept! Now I got to convince him to sell me the M37 he has in 20ga..

He gave me a few boxes of shells too!

00buck in 16gauge holds a really nice pattern at extended distances. Much tighter than 12 gauge can.

Get you an exstra barrel for that puppy and kick the snot outta people at 3-Gun and combat shotgun matches.

The 37 is the very best pump gun out there. It's a shame they are gone. My first pump was a 37 in 12 gauge. Right now I have a 20 with vent rib and recoil pad. I traded one like it but not in as cherry condition to a preacher man for his 12 year old son a few months ago. He was very happy. It's getting harder to find a real nice origianl one. I'm keeping my last one.

Should become easier to find since Remington (I think) re-released the 16ga.

Got a 20gauge featherweight with the old trigger that slam fires whenever the pump is brought fully forward.

Nice little gun, killed many a bunny with it.

The Walmarts around here carry Federal heavy field loads in 16ga. I use a Winchester 97 in 16ga for cowboy shooting.

I love my 37s, best pumps built. But I'm still looking for a 16ga for the complete set.

Well I got my hands on one and I'm keeping it!

I still kick myself for selling the one I had.
