Mounting scope on Ithaca 37

Anybody have a forward mounted scope on their Ithaca 37 Deerslayer? I'm looking to mount one on mine, but can't figure out what rings to use that will mount to the spots near the rear sight. Anybody know which ones work for this? Also, can I get by with a pistol scope for this - mostly wondering if the eye relief is right for this application, or maybe I need to find a scout scope?

Thanks!

JR

Re: Mounting scope on Ithaca 37

I had a custom mount and rings on my 37.

The guy who made them died a few years ago.

Make sure they (rings/mounts) can take the beating, slugs out of a 37 ain't no joke. I had a long eye relief and hated it, put a regular eye relief scope on it and liked it much better. Just have to slide the scope back as far as it will go and play around with the adjustment on the eyepeice to get a picture you're comy with.

Well, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you, so the Dude must abide!

I'm not a fan of receiver mounts for shotguns, prefer barrel mounts.

Re: Mounting scope on Ithaca 37

I'm just trying to get it set up to use the factory designed mounting locations on the rear sight - that way, when I take the barrel off and put the bird barrel back on, it should be close to zero and would take a minimum of sighters to verify zero before hunting with it. Also haven't had a forward mounted scope on a gun before, and want to give it a try - I figure this would be a good try-gun to see if I like the concept.

The biggest problem I'm having is finding out what rings to use to mount it up - there were rings made that worked - I've seen them mounted up... problem is, nobody I have talked to, including a major gun shop and a reputable gunsmith, knows what brand/model of rings fit - that's what I'm hoping to find here.

Thanks for the input guys!

Re: Mounting scope on Ithaca 37

Thats why I mount mine on the barrel too so when I switch back and forth from the bird barrel to the slug barrel, sighting in isn't so bad.
