Restocking an Ithaca 37 in the “T” style.

Some of the most desirable Ithaca 37 shotguns were the Pre-War 37Ts (trap model).  With their highly figured stocks and fine wrap around four-de-lis checkering patterns.

This later Model 37 12g. with Vent Rib barrel was restocked in the style of those early 37Ts.  Factory new old stock semi-insetted and rough profiled wood was used for the project.  They were fitted, shaped and finished to this gun.  Care was taken to profile the buttstocks grip and comb in the proper pre-war style, which was very different from the post-war guns.  The icing on the cake is the intricate borderless checkering pattern.  Hand cut in 24 lines per inch.
