Deerslayer III

The Ithaca Deerslayer III

The Ithaca Deerslayer III is a pump-action hunting shotgun chambered for 12 gauge and 20 gauge.

The Deerslayer is based on Ithaca’s prized Model 37, but has features making it a great candidate for deer hunting such as a rifled barrel, so it can fire slugs accurately.

It’s also very similar to the Deerslayer II except for a few features. It has a pre-installed Weaver rail for easy mounting of optics or accessories, a heavy fluted barrel, and a fancy A-grade walnut Monte Carlo stock.

Otherwise it has Ithaca’s patented Solderless Barrel System where the steel barrel is fastened with lugs instead of being soldered together. Ithaca says this system prevents the metal from warping, which could happen during the soldering process.

Other features include a checkered grip and fore-end and a 4- to 6-pound single-stage trigger.
