I am just wondering if anyone has thought about a kit using the Ithica Model-37 for a bullpup conversion.  A really crazy option is one that would use 2x Model-37s side by side with a replacement trigger and Selectable pump.  Just stirring the pot...   Grin

Although the 37 is bottom eject, due to the fact you cannot put an extended magazine on it, I donít think that many people would be interested, and due to the numbers out there are very low compaired to others , and the number of kits you would have to sell,  I donít think it would be profitable to do a kit

Been lurking about the forums researching the Tavor, but then spotted this thread...

In an effort to learn Sketchup CAD software several years ago for architectural purposes, I decided instead to explore the M37 as a coach gun for law, ranch and home mobility. Being left handed, ambidextrous was primary.

Here are some pics of the HayMaker with several variants at early and late stage cad development, seems very doable with some paths more robust and elegant: best path would modify receiver by Ithica (or capable smith) to integrate a slide-push bar trigger link behind (or near) spring shell stop. The slide bar would work both directions as bolt (breach block) release and trigger link. Primary safety being on-trigger to avoid impact shock to trigger link leading to misfire (curious how Tavor Handles this issue other than massive trigger pull); also that the HD could be used as glass-break (vehicle etc) and battering tool for breaching or nonlethal clubbing.

A few benefits with extruded aluminum shroud concept: internal sliding recoil reduction, fully integrated suppression, AR grip compatibility, conceal-ability due to slim design, century-old battle tested part, integration provides avenue for quick barrel swapping, nonlethal ammo options.... etc.

Anyway, these cad files are collecting years of dust, so here's a bit of open source brainstorming, prior arte, for those interested.  

p.s. the primary part used for concept is the Defender 20", by Ithica Sandusky, Ohio. CAD concept length: 26.5".

Rob, I like it! I also started off in Google Sketchup and now use Autodesk Inventor. While the Ithaca isn't as widely available it doesn't make good financial sense to produce a conversion stock for it unfortunately.

Did you ever build one for yourself? I have an Ithaca myself and agree it would be the best for a conversion if it were widely available. Plus it has the ability to keep firing without releasing the trigger. Just keep pumping!

Where would you find an Ithaca these days? This interests me.

Doesn't Savage make a clone (320 or 350)? Cheaper, steel receiver, and dual bars.
