Our Assessment: This is a Chinese copy of an Ithaca Model 37. It is not much for finish, but it seems solid and well-made in terms of function. It is chambered for 12 gauge magnums (3”) as well as the more common 12 gauge 2 ¾” shells. If you are looking for a barebones self-defense 12 gauge pump shotgun this is definitely worth a look. If you are left-handed or share self-defense in common with someone who is, this is a good design. It both loads and ejects through the bottom and thus works well for both left and right handed shooters.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This shotgun can be transferred in California.
