A collaboration between Ithaca Gun Co, Gunworks R & D and Simmons Gun Repair. Ithaca, known around the world for their legendary M37’s. Gunworks R & D, known for their leading role in the target industry. And Simmons, a company that has installed millions of ribs since 1946.
The M-17 was the brainchild of Denny Tubbs, of Gunworks. It is basically a modified M37, incorporating the “Side Load” port, simplifying ease of operation on the trap or sporting fields.
To our knowledge, the M17 is the only “Side Load, Bottom Eject” gun being built. This allows a shooter, either right or left handed to side load, without worry of ejecting shells in the face.
