From another post a few members brought up my 80 year old Remington in some of the pictures.  It is a 1931 Remington 17 that I picked up with a shortened stock and poly choke.  I added wood, opened up the grip and got a non-ventilated bell for the Poly choke.  It's killed alot of game for me.

So I was wondering who else out there has one and thought I'd just share some photos.



I have owned a dozen or so, but then started collecting pictures and whittled actual guns down to one, which has been with me for quite a few years now.  Very few Es and Fs were made, less than ten combined I believe, so I'm happy to even have photos of guns I could never own.









Even guns made the first year, three digits, but somehow preserved.  This one belongs to a collector now after a brief time with me.



Lots of memories with dogs past and dogs present invlove a Remington 17.







So who has one and do you even shoot it anymore?

Excellent!

They were know for being complicated and not reliable but that was only after fifty years of use!  I know an Engineer who tore one down to the very last screw and he was amazed at all the handwork, said there had to be 150 man hours in the action alone.  After his cleaning and reassembly it runs like a pump machine gun!

I was reading up on those because they were what the Ithaca 37 was based on and I love my 37s.  

Almost 'pulled the trigger' on this one, but while I was deciding, someone beat me to it.  Snooze and lose. :(

That was a nice one.  I almost bought it myself though it would have been a safe queen as the original grips were made for smaller hands and I wouldn't want to have to modify a nice one like that.  My current user was already cut for a kid so I figured no loss in making it more shootable for myself.

While the 17 was the patent bought by Ithaca, they are quite different from a 37 and no parts interchange.  Each has it's own advantage but the 17's had much more hand fitting and I can close my eyes and operate the pump and tell you if it's a 17 or 37.

I have a pre-war 37 and there is still a difference, though I would tell you the Ithaca is a much more shoot-able gun in stock form.

They were popular with gangsters as they could be cut down very short,(distance from rear of receiver to tip of magazine) This picture is from a video game that offered very authentic weapons for players to use.

Considering who bought that 17 on GB; I wonder if Walt is secretly collecting Remingtons.   :D

He'll never be able to look at a Model 12 the same way again!

This is my Grandfather as a boy in the mid 20's, with his model 10 B (although what the B has that the field grade doesn't, I have no idea). The serial is in the 100k range, a mid range production (08 to 29).



Fast forward a 80 years, same gun. Has a small piece of stock missing as it meets the receiver, and the pad has been added, and it has been plugged to only have a two shot magazine capacity.

My dads first shotgun was a model 17 and it was mine as well. Still have it and it has taken it's share of pheasants and ducks. Slick old gun with lots of memories.

Got one here that belonged to the FIL, it's in rough shape, but still shoots like a dream, with two barrels, 28 full, and 24 Imp.
I've killed a few Grouse with it over the years and it has a lot of sentimental value to me.
