Another "No Reserve" Penny Auction from Dust 2 Dollars.
Fine Estate & Consignment Firearms!


Description:

This auction is for an all original Winchester Repeating Arms Company model 1897 take down pump action 12 gauge shotgun. The serial numbers are matching (196303) and that tells us it was manufactured in 1904. The assembly numbers on the original butt plate and butt stock are also matching. The shotgun is around 113 years old and to be all original still is not something you see every day. It wears a 32" barrel that you don't see that often. It has a full choke and the bore is bright with areas of fine to moderate pitting. The receiver shows some areas of light pitting as you can see in all the full sized high resolution pictures below. The metal finish shows thinning with wear and a patina look you would expect from being this old. There are small spots of light pitting which you can see in the pictures on the metal. The forearm has a crack on the right side as shown with the finish being in fine condition. The butt stock is in rare form having no chips, cracks or repairs which is a very nice thing to see. The action is tight and functions just fine with no movement between the halves. Overall a very nice model 1897 that would make a great restoration project or a cowboy gun. Be sure to look at the pictures below, they show every inch of the gun for your consideration.

Shipped fully insured to your FFL dealer or valid C&R holder UPS Ground for $45. With the gun shipped in a new double wall cardboard box that is foam lined and taken down!
