Nice Hal!! Thats a good looking gun. I have been looking for a decent SXS I'm leaning toward the CZ right now or finding something used since it will be used mainly for duck hunting.


Roll with it. If you stay above 55 the wheel wont fall off.

BPS? I have one in 12 gauge and love it other then it's a 3 1/2" model so the slide on it is like trying to play a trombone. Let us know how it shoots.

It's the Ithaca M37. Nice and light and throws up just right on me. 28" barrel.

This week I received a Weatherby SA-08 semi-auto 28 ga.with a 28" barrel. The gun will be tried out tomorrow on the skeet range. The Beretta mobile chokes fit the gun, I have a skeet and cylinder plus the factory chokes. I intend to use the Beretta chokes for my TSS loads. Lots of testing to be done this summer.

I plan to use it for ducks and geese. I have bought 4# of TSS from hawglips next shipment and I'm gathering up all of the components I'll need for loading shells.

The gun weighs 5# 9 ounces and is very well made. I had to modify the trigger as it was way too heavy. Except for that one item the gun appears to be very well made and the steel appears to be of the proper hardness and should wear well. (I'm an FFL dealer/gunsmith so I have worked on many cheap guns with soft steel). The Weatherby has a good reputation and I think it will hold up for the use I have in mind.

Nice!
I always wanted a M37 to go with my M12... and to round out the trio, I need a BPS too! ;)
I bought a Stevens 555 28ga O/U couple months ago, but got double fires first time out... haven't shipped it back yet, should do that today... I think toasty has one he likes also.

Anyways, I've looked at those M37 28ga several times, thinking about buying on-- great purchase, hope you enjoy it!

ps. I have a 28ga SA08 also, and like it a lot.

Killed my first turkey with this gun a couple weeks ago. Used a 1-1/2 oz load of TSS 9-1/2s.
