This auction is for a VERY NICE 1971-manufactured Winchester Model 100 semi-automatic rifle in .308 Winchester caliber. Both the metal and the wood stock on this rifle are in very nice condition -- with no rust, 95+ percent bluing remaining on the metal, and only a few handling/storage marks on the basket-weave checkered wooden stock. Both the crown and bore are nice and shiny. The rifle comes with an installed Williams receiver peep sight as well as the original fold down rear sight. The front iron sight has the hood. Except for the 3rd-party peep sight (which adds value), this rifle looks 100% factory original. It also comes with a very nice condition brown leather with brass fittings adjustable sling from "The George Laurence Company 5" of Portland, Oregon. This is a fabulous old Winchester rifle just begging to be prominently displayed in a Gun Room or put to work in the field killing deer and any other medium to small game!!! A pdf file for the Model 100 Owner Manual will be emailed to the auction winner.

General information about the Model 100 follows. (Some of this may not apply to the rifle for sale.) The Winchester Model 100 was a semi-automatic rifle manufactured by Winchester Repeating Arms Company. It was first introduced in 1961, and was manufactured until 1973. A total of approximately 263,000 were manufactured. Variants of the weapon are capable of firing a .308, .243, or .284 Winchester cartridge. The barrel is 22 inches long. The rifle weighs about 7.5 pounds.

The Model 100 has become a classic Winchester rifle. It was last produced in 1973, so many of the newer hunters among us have never seen nor heard of this classy semi-auto. It is unlike any other high powered semi-auto in that it wears a nice one-piece stock, just like a typical bolt rifle. This semi-auto rifle is interesting because of its classy looks compared to most other autoloaders. Winchester brought out the Model 100 in 1961 as a kind of companion to their Model 88 lever action, which debuted in 1955. The Model 100 also wears a one-piece stock of very similar design, except that the semi-auto has a fuller forend to contain the working mechanism. The same two checkering patterns, one a hand checkered point pattern and the other a fancier basket weave impressed design, were used on both rifles. The cut checkering was used prior to 1964 and, as a cost cutting method, the basket weave pattern after 1964.

Don’t be overly concerned about “Pre-64” and “Post-64” in this case, since, other than the checkering change on the Model 100, there were no other significant changes to the Model 100 in 1964. The easiest way to recognize pre and post '64s is by the checkering. Some actually prefer the look of the “cheaper” basket weave pattern which came in 1964 and later. The Model 100's stock is a bit beefier than the Model 88 stock, making the 100 a “stouter” rifle which can handle use (and dare we say “abuse) better than the Model 88. The Model 100 was originally offered in two calibers (.243 and .308 Win.) and one barrel length, 22 inches. Later on, another caliber, .284 Winchester, and style, a carbine with a 19" barrel and no checkering on the stock, were added.

A nice feature about the Model 100 is the fact you can remove the magazine, eject the chambered round, then insert the 4th round back into the magazine. That makes it quick and easy to unload and reload, as long as you only used four rounds in the first place. The safety is a "push button" type, as on most semi-autos. But, this one is placed in a better position. It's located in the front of the trigger guard, not behind the trigger. This is a much more natural and comfortable spot to keep your finger when still hunting, a forte of semi-autos in my opinion. It feels quite natural to have your index finger on the safety and, while shouldering the rifle for a quick shot, push it "off" and then move your finger back a bit to the trigger as you prepare to fire.

The Model 100 stock is classically styled, with no cheek piece or Monte Carlo hump. It has a metal pistol grip cap and most have a red "W" on a circular plate glued to the metal grip cap. Unfortunately for me, the epoxy I used to re-glue these plates back onto the grip cap didn't hold well and now both of the rifles I refinished have a grip cap without the plate. All Model 100s were also supplied with Winchester's sling swivels of that era. These are the permanently attached type that needs a sling to keep them from rattling, just like the older Model 70s. Not to belabor the point, but the Model 100's stock design made it a very attractive rifle in its day, and it still is. No Model 100 was ever produced with a recoil pad.

The .308 Winchester (pronounced: "three-oh-eight" or "three-aught-eight") is a rimless, bottlenecked rifle cartridge and is the commercial cartridge from which the 7.62×51mm NATO round was derived. The .308 Winchester was introduced in 1952, two years prior to the NATO adoption of the 7.62×51mm NATO T65. Winchester branded the cartridge and introduced it to the commercial hunting market as the .308 Winchester. Winchester's Model 70, Model 88, and Model 100 rifles were subsequently chambered for the new cartridge. Since then, the .308 Winchester has become the most popular short-action, big-game hunting cartridge worldwide. It is also commonly used for civilian target shooting, military sniping, and police sharpshooting. The relatively short case makes the .308 Winchester especially well-adapted for short-action rifles. When loaded with a bullet that expands, tumbles, or fragments in tissue, this cartridge is capable of high terminal performance.

The .308 Winchester is one of the most popular hunting cartridges in the United States, and possibly the world. It has gained popularity in many countries as an exceptional cartridge for game in the medium- to large-sized class. In North America it is used extensively on whitetail deer, pronghorn, and even the occasional caribou or black bear. Clay Harvey, an American gun writer, says it is usable on moose and elk. Layne Simpson, an American who has hunted in Sweden, says he is surprised how many hunters there use the cartridge. Craig Boddingtons was told by a Norma Precision executive that the .308 is one of Norma's best-selling calibers. In Africa the .308 Win is one of the most popular calibers among Bushveld hunters and is used on anything from duiker right up to the massive eland (a small and large African antelope respectively). Proponents of the hydrostatic shock theory contend that the .308 Winchester has sufficient energy to impart hydrostatic shock to living targets when rapidly expanding bullets deliver a high rate of energy transfer.

Winchester as a company needs little introduction. If you do not know its fascinating history, you should Google Yahoo or Bing “Winchester Repeating Arms Company Wikipedia” and read about it. Winchester is the most famous and well-known rifle and shotgun manufacture in America and the World.
