The Ithaca model 37 has been manufactured pretty much unchanged since 1937, so you be the judge if it's a good gun. The name was changed to model 87 in 1987 but changed back to model 37 around the year 2000. I see no listing for "Featherweight" although there is a "Featherlight".
Since the mod 37 is a pump gun and the 51 is semi-auto, if it fits then it is a coincidence.
easy Look on the barrel it should say if it a Model 37 , or Model 37 Featherweight, but the main Point is it should be on the barrel what Model it is
Historical Overview of the Ithaca Gun Co. says that in 1987 Ithaca Acquisitions, Inc. Moved the gun making operations to King Ferry, NY. and changed the model m-37 to model 87. In 1996 Ihtaca gun Co. LLC changed it back to model 37.
Your winchester model 37 single shot shotgun is valued at between 90-200 dollars based on your shotgun having 60%-90% original finish and a good bore.
The Model 37 was the "workhorse" of the company, and was made in many different gauges and for different uses - i.e., a "riot gun", trench gun", deerslayer, turkey gun, etc., etc. Each of those variables impacts the value, just as does the condition of the gun. If you are talking about the "standard" 12 GA Model 37 Featherweight for general use, and it is in good condition, I see prices in the $150 - $250 range on Gunbroker.com. You might want to log on and see what the market is offering. What Ithaca 37? I guess in general you can figure 50 to 2000 bucks...
On the bottom of the barrel where it meets the chamber.
Ithaca Gun Co only used the seven-digit serial numbers in 1968 and 1969. Your Model 37 was manufactured in 1969.

The Model 37 is a pump gun, and the 51 is a semi-automatic. I doubt seriously that the barrels are interchangeable, since they are totally different models.
No, they did not. The Model 37 was manufactured from 1937 - 1963. It was the Gun Control Act (GCA) of 1968 that made serial numbers mandatory.
The Winchester Model 37 was not serialized. It was the GCA (Gun Control Act) of 1968 that required all newly manufactured or imported firearms to be serialized. Production of the Model 37 ceased in 1963.

Watch Gunbroker.com - they often have barrels listed. Also you might try Ithaca Gun USA, a company that has picked up the rights to manufacture the Model 37.
Model 37 what? I can find this model number for at least 3 major manufacturers and they are all totally different guns.

The Winchester model 37 single shot shotgun was made by Winchester from 1936-1963.A total of 1,015,554 were made during this time span.This model was reintroduced in 1973 as the model 37-A and was made until 1981.No serial numbers were ever assigned to the model 37,as there was no law in place until the gun control act of 1968 mandating this.
with that s/n the gun was mfg in 1969, but if it has 37 in front of it then it was mfg 1973-74.
What is the condition of the gun and the barrel length?
