Hello,

The Model 37 was never serialized, and the number "5" on your gun is an inspection stamp. The Model 37 was manufactured from February of 1936 through Decedmber of 1963. My guess is that your Model 37 was a late production gun.

The value is a function of its graded condition, and you indicate that there are some issues (pitting on the barrel). Without the benefit of seeing the gun, I will assume that it is in 70% condition, and as such, it is worth approximately $200 - $250.

made from 1936 to 1963, there was five different editions of these Guns First edition was only made for about 2 years it is called the Pigtail Edition as the Breakdown lever has a hole thru it and Red Lettering on the bottom, the Second Edition has a Small Hammer and also has Red Lettering on the bottom, The third Edition has a Big hammer turned down and has Red Lettering on the Bottom also, the Fourth Edition the Hammer is Turned Down but no Red Lettering on the Bottom and the Fifth Edition the Hammer is turned up and no Red Lettering on the Bottom.

Your about in the area of 250 to 300 depends on the condition.

I have one with a serial number, C1051471. Last fall I built a handicap ramp for an elderly couple across the street because they needed it, last month he called me over to give me this beautiful little 410 shootgun, its in nearly perfect condition, I don't think its ever been out of the house, theres one small patch of rust about a quarter of an inch long, the wood is in perfect condition, it looks new. He also gave me a box of ammo that had been opened but none used so I don't know if the gun has even been fired, what do you think the value of it would be, not that I would sell it, I'm keeping it because it meant so much too him. Thanks

The serial number on your gun indicates that you either have a Model 370 or a Model 37A versus a Model 37. Both the 370 and 37A were built in Canada, and they are post-1963 production guns. The value is approximately $200 - $250.

I have a 3rd edition, according to the discription here. the bluind and the finish on the stock show signs of wear, but no rust or pitting. would this be of similar value to the ones above mentioned?

How is it that you value a post 64 canadian 37a and a pre 64 model 37 redletter the same? Please explain for this is very confusing.

The Model 37 has wear and rust pitting on it, and it is maybe in 70% condition. The 37A is nearly brand new.
