1968 Ithaca M37 M&P Police Issue 12ga Riot Gun - 20" Barrel  Guns > Shotguns > Ithaca Shotguns > Pump
Description: Rare 1968 Ithaca M37 12 ga M&P that has PD markings and cruiser kit Pacmayer pistol grip/fore-stock set.

Excellent condition with scattered scuff marks to the exterior finish from handling. Appears to have very little (if any) actual use.

LE Shotguns were supplied by Ithaca with a cruiser package consisting of the Pacmayer Vindicator combat pistol grip and forearm set. The configuration makes it similar to the old whip-it guns making it easier to deploy from a car. The only recent sale for an Ithaca M37 Pacmayer Vindicator grip-set was in 2013 for $260.

Ithaca added a Hand Grip option to LE models in 1981. Factory issued a basic hard grip and not the same quality as the custom Pacmayer set which included the heavily stippled custom fore-grip.

*Ithaca Factory description 5-Shot Pump, Bottom discharge, Take-down 12 gauge 20" Barrel with Full Choke Red Raybar sight bead Exterior: Sandblast Parkerized, will withstand salt spray test Interior: Parkerized Stock: Mfg provided Pacmayer Custom Combat Pistol Grip Set Butt Plate: Hard Rubber Type Weight: 6-1/2 lbs

This gun is marked "EBPD" and is probably an old East Brunswick, NJ issue. The EBPD is 4 hours drive from the old Ithaca, NY factory. Ithaca Gun produced this configuration for WW2 and Vietnam military contracts. In 1962 the company started selling the military guns to police departments.

Initials were factory stamped on the receiver at no charge. The base shotgun had no markings on the receiver except the proof and serial number stamps. Guns marked with PD stamps are much more rare and collectible.

Except for the custom pistol grip and fore-grip package, this build is the exact same as the combat issued WW2 and Vietnam trench guns minus the bayonet and fixturing. The full choke M&P “is designed to give dense patterns with buckshot” and is "preferred by the Armed Forces for jungle warfare where maximum firepower is required at ranges up to 100 yards" as stated by the 1962 new product introduction letter to LE and marketing brochure resp.

Functionality aside, the cool factor for this shorty is through the roof.
