Re: safety question on the ithaca 37
No, you cannot flip the safety over on an ithaca 37. You need a left hand safety. I don't think a smith will machine you a safety. You can still get them, but sometimes it can be a tough find.
I bought another 37 last year. The previous owner was a lefty. However, I'm right handed. So I put a right hand safety in. I am a huge 37 fan and am very framiliar with a 37 trigger ground so I did it myself. So I have a 37 left hand safety I could sell you if you like. It's a williams big head safety. It's like an oversized safety. It's easier for your fingure to find on a quick shot. If your interested just send me a PM.
