The business end of the Model 37, also known as the “trench gun” or “riot gun.” (Photo: Inland/Facebook).
The 12-gauge “trench gun” is back after a 41-year hiatus. Inland Manufacturing, in partnership with Ithaca Firearms, announced this week a re-production of the Model 37 combat shotgun.
The new production models are faithful to the original design from its bead sight, Parkerized finish, oiled walnut stock, and ventilated hand guard to its hard-to-miss bayonet lug that fits the long 1917 bayonet, said Charles Brown, president of MKS Supply, the firm marketing the historic firearms. He called the gun an “authentic combat firearm once used by our troops in Vietnam.”
The Ithaca Model 37 made its original debut in 1937, based on a design by the legendary John Browning. Production of the Model 37 stopped in 1945 because at the time post-war “riot guns” were in sufficient supply to satisfy the law enforcement and civilian markets stateside.
But war in Vietnam brought demand back, and the Model 37 earned a respected place as a tool for combat medics and other support personnel as well as many Special Forces troops of the day. Production was once again halted in 1975.
Field testing during the Vietnam era revealed the versatility of the Model 37 — not only was it a close-range fight-stopper, but proved its carbine-like capability to do big damage out to 75 yards when loaded with 00, 000, and #4 buckshot, slugs, and, infrequently, even flachette rounds.
The Model 37 has a capacity of 4+1. Overall length is 38.5 inches, of which 20 is barrel. It weighs 6.7 pounds. The receiver is machined from a single slab of steel and bears the same military stamps as the original. Loading and ejection are just like the original too, via the belly of the receiver.
Out of the box, the gun comes with a military-style sling, though it’s not been revealed if the sling will be cotton webbing or leather. The gun will retail for $1,239.
Gun is in very good condition. Shows typical signs of use. No dents. or rust. Based on the original Yugoslavian version by the same name, the M70 AB2 by Century International Arms pays homage to its roots by keeping the same qualities and performance. Utilizing the same long-stroke gas piston system as the venerated AK-47 platform, the M70 AB2 is known for its reliable operation and has proven itself time and again. Despite the similarities, the M70 AB2 has special features that set it apart from its Kalashnikov predecessor. Most notably the M70's receiver is 1.5mm thicker, making it more durable with a longer service life. Unlike the AK-47, the M70 does not have a chrome-lined barrel, providing an increase in accuracy. Three cooling slots on the handguard dissipate the heat, allowing the user to comfortably operate the firearm even for prolonged periods of fire. An under-folding stock allows for compact and easy handling in close-quarter operations. Issued by various armies worldwide, and used by friend and foe alike, the M70 AB2 is a robust and reliable rifle that doesn't quit.

In a vote on Monday afternoon, the Seattle City Council unanimously approved a new gun tax and regulations within the city.
The new tax places an extra $25 on each firearm sold within the city and 5 cents on each round of ammunition. The council also passed an ordinance that requires mandatory reporting of lost and stolen firearms.

"Every day, the general public pays the enormous cost of gun violence," said Council President Tim Burgess moments after the vote. "Gun violence is a public health crisis in our city and our nation. City government can and must pursue innovative gun safety measures that save lives and save money. As it has in other areas of policy, Seattle can lead the way in local solutions.
"A gun violence tax will give us revenue to provide broad-based benefits through research and prevention programs. Mandatory reporting provides the police information critical to investigations. I'm grateful for my colleagues' full support for both of these measures."
Critics have called foul on the arguments for the taxes.
Sergey Solyanik is one such critic. The owner of Precise Shooter on Aurora Avenue, argues against the new tax, and has published his own numbers and figures that contradict the city's assertions it can take in between $300,000 and $500,000 in gun-tax revenue to put towards gun-violence prevention programs.
"Basically, what the city has done is that they have invented numbers," he said. "Pretty much, all the numbers they have associated with this proposal are outright fake."
Solyanik punched his own numbers, based on actual sales in the city, and he estimates Seattle would more likely get around $80,000 from the tax. But that is only if the tax doesn't alter the market. The gun store owner also argues that the tax will cause customers to divert their purchases to shops just beyond the city's border.
"My store will definitely have to move. It would not be economically viable to stay in the city," he said, noting that there are only two primary gun shops in Seattle, but many more just outside the city.
But that move won't come immediately. The city can expect a legal battle over the taxes first.
"The very first thing that is going to happen is that all the gun stores will have to file a lawsuit trying to stay this," Solyanik said. "So while the court considers it, the law won't go into effect."
Solyanik said that the cheapest option is for him to sue the city. The next cheapest option is to move his store. If he stays in the city, he will go out of business under the taxes.
For example, Solyanik said that his gun store grossed $22,000 during the first six months of 2015. That is before he pays expenses. He estimates that if he paid the city's taxes himself, instead of passing them along to the customer, it would cost $23,500.
If business owners made good on the threat to sue Seattle over the gun taxes, word of the controversy will likely make its way to the state's attorney general's office, where it might face state-level scrutiny.
"A plaintiff could sue the city, probably for a declaratory judgment declaring the city ordinance invalid as being preempted by state law," according to Alison Dempsy-Hall with Washington's Office of the Attorney General. "The Declaratory Judgments Act requires that any party alleging that a local ordinance is invalid give notice of that claim to the attorney general."
Solyanik believes Seattle's ordinance is invalid.
"The only real intent for this law is to regulate the firearm industry, basically regulate it out of town," Solyanik said.
He further said that the state's own laws prevent cities from making local gun control regulations.
"There is a law in the state of Washington that says you cannot intact more restrictions on firearms than already exist in the state," Solyanik said. "It is extremely easy to show that the only intent with this law is not collecting the revenue, but legislating on guns, and it should be easy for a court to see that this is illegal."

Though Florida has its own state gun laws, things are a bit different at Disney World, where guns and weapons are not allowed.
In its dress code, Disney World prohibits visitors from carrying "weapons of any kind" into its theme parks. But not all gun-carrying visitors are aware.
Angelo Lista told The Orlando Sentinel last year that he was clueless about Disney's gun policy after he left his loaded Cobra .380-caliber semiautomatic pistol on a dinosaur ride at Animal Kingdom.

"It was my mistake, but I wish I would've known more about" the policy, said Lista, who was escorted out of the park after he retrieved his weapon, which fell out of his pocket during the ride.
A grandmother found the firearm, loaded with five hollow-point bullets, after departing the ride with her grandson.
According to the newspaper, Disney employees rarely search any of the thousands of daily visitors. There are no metal detectors and guests can enter uninhibited unless they are carrying bags, which must be inspected.
Lista said he forgot to store the gun in his car. He told the Orlando Sentinel that Disney officials said if he found himself on the premises and armed in the future, he could tell a security officer, who would steer him to a locker so he could store it.
It was not clear if signs prohibiting firearms are visible, the newspaper reported.
Under Florida gun laws, Disney, as well as other private landowners, can limit the open carrying of firearms on property. A guest can be directed to leave for violating the policy, but Disney cannot press criminal charges if the owner legally possesses the weapon.
Lista was able to return to the park the next day without his gun.
