Question About Older Ithaca 37

Long ago, before I had any appreciation for such things, I inherited my grandfather's Ithaca 37. It has no serial number that I can find. I'm pretty sure my grandfather had it at least in the early 50s, probably earlier. It is in good shape, and I want to keep it, but I'd like to figure out (roughly) how old it is. Also, it needs a new magazine spring. Any ideas on where to get information and parts for this old shotgun would be appreciated.

Edit: I found the serial number thanks to a fellow on another forum. It is 42683. That gives a date of manufacture of 1941. Any info on this old gun, or older Ithacas in general, will be appreciated.

You should contact [url]http://diamondgunsmithing.com/[/url] The guy running the shop spent more than 20 years working for the Ithaca Gun company while they were still in Ithaca, NY. He's extremely knowledgeable.

Try shotgunworld.com They have a section on Ithaca's and you'll probably find out all you need to know there. The mods and members there really know their guns and it's one of the best shotgun sites around.

Thanks guys. I've already communicated with Les at Diamond Gunsmithing. Very nice and prompt reply. I'm looking at getting the shotgun re-blued and one barrel cut down to a little over 18 inches. I'll keep you posted.
