Gently modding an Ithaca 37 shotgun to hold more shells (VIDEO)

Artist and fabricator Jimmy DiResta picked up a secondhand stock for his favorite duck gun and gave it a bit of a rework to be able to carry more shells.

DiResta says his vintage Ithaca 37 pump dates from the 1950s so instead of dinking with the original wood he picked up a replacement buttstock off eBay for $50 then set about boring holes for some extra hulls.

After a bit of magic with the drill press, some re-profiling and refinishing, the modification came together pretty nicely– but he did have to perform surgery on the stock screw to make it fit.

So what if you may have a hard time getting a cheek weld?
