Just acquired what appears to be a late 70s Ithaca in great shape. Thought I was out of the shell-shucking game, but this beauty dragged me back in.

It's a 95% Featherlight with a mod barrel, which is great for most of the hunting I do except for one thing: Turkeys.

I know I can get the barrel threaded, but want to try and find a used barrel that takes tubes? Possible? Anyone know a source for one of these? Already checked the usual suspects (Midway, Brownells, Ebay, Numrich) to no avail.

Thanks in advance.

When I got my ithaca 37 I was interested in getting another barrel also. I checked around online and could not find one for under $180ish

They show up on ebay fairly regularly. They ain't cheap though.

$166 for a new Hastings. Not too bad.

I'm not sure when the cut off is, but older Ithaca barrels had to be fitted, and newer barrels will NOT "drop in".

I suggest contacting the new Ithaca and asking them about replacements, and what will fit.

Any M37 with a serial number greater than 855,000 is able to interchange barrels without hand-fitting.
