More from this past weekend - 1897 Winchester (originally 30 inch full choke barrel) made into trench gun


Recommended Posts

Action is smooth as silk. I realize it's not a purists version of a trench gun, but it is a 1915 manufactured 1897 Winchester with authentic trench gun attachments. Another beautiful addition to my collection.

Thanks for the comments. I've been wanting one myself for several years. Been down with a stomach bug (thinking food poisoning) since Monday so haven't tried it out yet.
