Ithaca Model 37 problems.

Postby Mallard Merlin » Sun Sep 16, 2012 11:08 am

Hello All, I am having a heck of a time with my m37 failing to feed, it is very clean and mainly does it with 3" shells. I have heard something about timing the action on these guns, but have not found advice on how to actually do this. Any suggestions are welcomed.

Sounds like your short shucking it. Thats kinda common with them when they get a little worn cause their so smooth. Also you might have to tighten up your carrier.

Ohio Mike, I hope I am not short arming it but it mainly happens with 3" shells. The carrier tightening, would you just squeeze it together or something else? Thank you for the help.

Tighten the two screws on the top rear of the reciever. They have a lock screw on them. Use a good hollow ground screwdriver or you'll booger up the screwheads.
