My deerslayer doesn't have any Ser# marked on the receiver. I was told that early productions from the 1960's didn't have them on the receiver but somewhere else...Can anyone tell me anything? Thanks, Chris workinmynerves@Yahoo.com
What is the condition of the gun and the barrel length?
1980 serial number 371671001 - 371690000 now thats year for the M37 all models including deerslayer. You can do some research and find out exact model and value
Technically they are both "Featherweight", but the Deerslayer had a shorter barrel with rifle sights for shooting slugs or buckshot. It could also be fitted with a scope.
The Featherlight Deerslayer 12 gauge is a hunting rifle made by the Ithaca Gun Company. These guns are very modern and are worth around 1,000 dollars.
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.
You can tell how old your Ithaca gun is by the model and serial number
The Model is "37," with the grade identified by a name (such as "Featherlight" or "Deerslayer") or a letter. Otherwise, it is a Field Grade, either Standard (2 3/4" chamber) or Magnum (3" chamber). I am aware of no public listing of Model 37 manufacture dates, but IDSA Books publishes Ithaca Featherlight Repeaters. They're on the net. However, your serial number denotes a fairly recent manufacture). 1973
The serial number indicates Ithaca manufactured your Model 37 in 1956.
I'd like to know too! I have an opportunity to purchase a "new" looking deerslayer that I am told is ten years old. The seller wants $500. Is that too much?
