What, Ithaca Tactical Guns?! Those words don’t go together dothey? I’m here to tell you that nowadays, with the rebirth of theIthaca Gun company in Upper Sandusky Ohio, they do! The Model 37Defense 12-gauge shotgun is available, manufactured exquisitely onnew CNC machining, all here in the USA. My requested sample has awalnut stock, dark Perma-Guard coating on all metal parts, 3-inchmagnum chamber, fixed 18-inch smoothbore barrel with cylinder bore,and Hi-Viz adjustable rifle sights.
The magazine capacity is 4 shots standard, with a 7 shotextended mag tube model available. Synthetic stocks are available,Ejection on the 37 is down through the same bottom port that thegun is loaded through. For law enforcement use (for which this newgun is an affordable, trim handling alternative to the Remington870), the downward ejection is a distinct advantage during firearmsqualification when you stand shoulder to shoulder in a straightline with your fellow officers. Also, it means that there is onlyone entry point for debris into the action, and not two like onevery other competing model. Quality is absolutely first rate!www.ithacagun.com

O.F. Mossberg and Sons builds some great-and very competitivelypriced, tactical shotguns. Right now, you can get two or more,(depending on the AR you choose to compare against) MossbergTactical Shotguns such as the 590A1 pump with an M-4 adjustablestock, for the price of just one AR-15. I have been working withthe Model 590A1 four-shot pump and the Model 930 8 shotgas-operated semi-auto 12-gauge guns, both in black.
Unfortunately, there are no rail segments on the guns forattaching lights or other options. What you have are just solid,basic, fighting shotguns. Check all of them out at www.mossberg.com
