Yep, I have one of almost the same vintage in 16 gage that I inherited when Dad passed a year ago. Mine has the old weaver style choke system which I always thought looked cool. I hope to never modify it and remember the good times had with dad hunting the old fence lines in North East Indiana. RIP dad.

You can hold this old gun by the pistol grip with your finger on the bolt release and shake it up and down and it cycles..

Mine does the same thing and we still shoot it regularly. I used to "race" my buddy with a sweet 16 semi. Lots of memories with that 37.

Nice gun and good story. I have my grandpa 12 ga l c smith. Kicks like a mule but it has won a lot of turkey shoots. Almost not fair. Itís long and knocks the centers of a target out. Itís going to my grandson. He loves to see it every time I get him.

The only thing cooler than the gun is the story that comes with it.
