    Ithaca 37 bolt removal

    I'm pushing the bolt pin over and pulling on the slide but it won't come out. It looks like the tip of the pin may be broken not allowing it to release from the slide. Anyone have or hear of this problem? It's a 20 gauge. I've got the barrel and buttstock off. The trigger group came out easy too. Thanks in advance.

    Yeah, its a somewhat common problem with the 37. Oddly the guns often function just fine even so. Generally, its a three hand deal, hold the pin to the side, and then bounce the action against a padded bench or something to allow the broken piece to pop out, all while jiggling the slide arm to assist. Just keep after it you will win. Then of course the pin will need replaced.
    Does it occur to those that believe that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, may be because that guy takes the time to take care of his grass?

    I have never tried to take any of my 37's apart.

    As far as 37 trouble spots, another is the shell stop springs seem to go bad on them. Other than the slide/bolt pin, and the shell stop spring, I honestly cant recall any other issue popping up on the old classics. And by that, I mean those made into the 80s. I know they have tried to re intro them a couple of times, I have zero experience with those other than hearing that they were a bit rough in overall finish.
