like wags said the m 37 was invented by john m browning. the year was 1915 that browning patented the bottom eject shot gun. and like wags said it was first produced by remington. as the model 17 in 20 gauge. i read that ithica picked up the design after the patent ran out. ithica beefed up the design to handle 12 gauge shells and in 1937 came out with the model 37.the next year they came out with a 16 gauge that was the first to be called the feather weight, it weighed 6 pounds.
that is the gun that i wish i had a older 16 gauge.

dates and model #'s were taken from a guns&ammo artical.
