2 3/4 magnums in an Ithaca DSPS??

I have an Ithaca NY made Ithaca Deerslayer Police Special. It's chambered for the 2 3/4 12 gauge shell. Can I shoot 2 3/4" magnum shells though it without damaging the weapon?

Yes, the 37 is a well made and designed (by JMB) tool.

You may be get damaged, though. The platform is quite light, and with heavy loads the kick is likely to be emphatic.

I've shot 2 3/4 mags in my deerslayers for years. More damage to my shoulder than the shotgun. (kills at both ends)

Hunted bambi for years using my 37 and mostly used mag shells, only problem was my shoulder.
