I’ve been searching for inexpensive single shot 410’s.  I ran across a 37A in very nice shape, regular plastic butt pad, white line spacers like was big in the 70’s.  The gentlemen sent me the serial number and it is C957303, I was wondering if with the serial number if there are any date of manufacture records or do I have to live with the 1973-1980 range?

I’m not horribly concerned about the value, I understand them to be a shooter grade, not a collectable.  I’m giving him $200, I’m fairly certain it’s quality will beat the single shot imports of today.

Thanks for any help in this department.

Mike,

The Model 37A shotguns were all manufactured at the Cobourg Ontario, Canada (Cooey) factory when it was owned and controlled by Winchester.  Unfortunately, there are no records that can be referenced to determine precise dates of manufacture.

Thanks Bert,

It does have about the largest serial number I’ve seen on any of them, in the 900,000’s range so I’m going to speculate it’s closer to the 1980 than the 1973.

Seem like a reasonable assumption?
