I haven't weighed the RBL, but it seems considerably heavier than my similarly spec'd English doubles. Nevertheless, it fits me, mounts and points well, and appears that it will be a great field gun. I agree about the engraving, but on the whole, I think the RBL is a good value.
That's the beauty of mine, I custom ordered them to LOP, with the upgraded wood.

Essentially they are both fully optioned out, sequentially numbered guns.

Maybe we need a trenchgun thread.
Couple of beauties there. Thanks for the pic.

I found one today, some pitting on (not in), dings in the wood, some numbers lightly engraved on the receiver, older gun. Might have been an ex police gun I suppose. Guy wanted $300. Seemed high to me for a weapon that was kinda beat up. Thoughts?

Is that for an Ithaca or something else?

It does sound a little steep if its a 37 in rough condition, but I'm always surprised at how much they bring.

I think almost any rust free, functioning pump is probably worth $200 and the 37 certainly brings a premium above that, so you may not be far apart. It all depends on how much you want it. I've overpaid by a little at times when it's something I really want and it'll be more hassle to keep looking.

Thought I mentioned it. Was a Remington 870 wingmaster.

I use my shot guns more than most. people talk about the 870 and I have a few. I'll grab a 37 for a pump over them every time. I have never had one not cycle and I have shot a bunch.
