Ithaca 37 parts

I have an Ithaca 37 20 gauge that i would like to clean up cosmetically. The screws in the reciever that hold the trigger group in are slighly damaged. I think its from the previous owner not using the correct size driver to strip his gun. Also the yoke screw is stripped slightly. I have found some online but 10 bucks for a screw is just crazy in my eyes. Anyone have any insight to a better solution? Or even a good place to find some cheaper. Thanks

If you can find them for ten bucks, go for it.

Numrich is asking more than that.

"The screws in the reciever that hold the trigger group in are slighly damaged. I think its from the previous owner not using the correct size driver to strip his gun."

If you are refering to the trigger plate screw (there's only one), then it's more likely that it was taken apart by someone who didn't know that you have to take the stock off first. (That screw doesn't have to be done up tightly.)

Regards,

Mark.

Don't know how bad yours are, but with the judicious use of the right file(s) and some quality cold blue, many damaged screws will clean up well. I've brought a lot of them back to life since I enjoy working on "project" guns.
