Slam Fire Memories With the Ithaca M37 Pumpgun (Video)

A slightly used but still functional Ithaca Model 37 DS Police Special provides a great afternoon of fun down at Demolition Ranch.

The original Ithaca Gun Co. of Ithaca, New York, was founded in 1883 and went out of business in 2005 (though a new company operates under the same name in Ohio). One of their classics was the John Browning-designed Model 37 shotgun introduced just before World War II. A favorite of sportsmen, police and the military, the bottom-ejecting M37 made before 1975 or so could be “slam fired” super fast due to the design of the sear.

The DS Police Special that Matt has came factory standard with rifle sights on a 18.5-inch barrel and a park finish.

Of course, most shotgunning books and experts advise against slam firing any shotgun (the older Winchester Model 97’s and 12s do it as well) but this is Demo Ranch, so tread at your own risk.
