CANADIAN Made WINCHESTER M37A Single Shot 20 Gauge Modern HAMMER Shotgun
Manufactured at the H.W. COOEY MACHINE & ARMS CO.
Here we present a Modern Winchester Model 37A Top Break Single Shot Shotgun, manufactured at the H.W. Cooey Machine & Arms Company sometime during its production run between 1973 and 1979 in Toronto, Canada. This gun was the eventual follow up to the Winchester Model 37 Single Shot Shotgun which was an American made shotgun manufactured in New Haven, Connecticut. It was in production from 1936 to 1963, with 1,015,554 examples manufactured.
Winchester moved manufacturing to the Cooey facility in Canada and in the late 1960s brought out the Model 370, which was an adaptation of the Model 37 and Cooey’s similar Model 84. The Model 370 was short-lived, though, and just a few years later, a few more changes were incorporated, including a switch from beech to walnut stocks and a beavertail-type forearm with finger grooves, and the Model 37A arrived in 1973.
While not as prolific as its long lost ancestor, the Model 37, nearly 400,000 Model 37As were manufactured. These are marked “Made in Canada,” and were made in most of the available gauges at one time or another, including .410 Bore. The Cooey plant was closed in 1979, and the Model 37A was discontinued.
The overall condition is fine. Original finish. Robust action. The bore is bright and smooth. Fine stock with sharp checkering. Legible markings. Lightly engraved frame.
