My first post here in the 16ga. I have an Ithaca Model 37 in 16ga. It is a newer model made in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. I bought it a couple years ago when they were ending production of their 16ga. I love the gun.
It came with Briley flush choke tubes in F, M and IC. I am looking for a couple additional choke sizes especially Skeet and Cylinder. The Ithaca and Briley websites only list tubes for the Model 37 in 12, 20 and 28.
I have conducted some fruitless internet searches. Anybody know where or if 16ga tubes are available for this gun?
I contacted Briley. FWIW Ithaca uses the standard Invector choke tubes. (Not the Invector Plus or DS). Kind of convenient that I can interchange tubes between my Citori 16ga and Ithaca Model 37 16ga. I have physically confirmed this with both firearm's tubes.
I forgot to ask if this applies to other gauges but I would presume it does. Seems unlikely they would use a different type of tube for each gauge.
The Ohio made 37 in 20 and 12 ga. use the Invector Plus tubes. HOWEVER they are different diameters than the Browning Inv+ tubes. The Ithaca guns are not backbored and the diameter between the bores of the Browning\Winchester and Ithaca guns are different. Using a Browning Inventor plus in an Ohio 37 gun will mean it is more open, by at least .005-.010. This is what Zack at Ithaca Gun in Upper Sandusky and Gary at Briley have both confirmed.
I get my chokes for my Ohio Ithaca 37's from MPC Sports and are cheaper than from Briley-
Do not have an Ohio made 16 ga. yet, but 2 Ohio 37's, King Ferry 16 ga. English Ultralight with chokes and more than a few 37's mainly focused on the 16. Had Briley install thin walls in my 16 ga. 37 RV Deluxe. Today won a pre war 37 solid rib 16 ga. Score!! Been hunting that unicorn for a long time now Someday an Ohio 16 will find it's way into my collection.
