    Hello ladies and gents. I picked up my first model 70 at a local shop. It looks to be all original and in amazing condition. Almost seems to good to be true. Can any model 70 experts tell from the pictures of it is all original/hasn’t been restored? The serial number tells me that it was made in...
  2. Shotgun Forum (military and commercial)
    This is the next chapter in an ongoing saga with this 1897, (Now dubbing it the 1890-Lemon) we have spent the past month or so fighting with it to make it work right, the saying I heard from an old Winchester '97 smith could not be more true: "Fine tuning an 1897 is closer to black magic". So...

    (I didn't know if I should put this in the shotgun forum or this one, let me know if it should be moved) I have a late '20s early '30s Winchester 1897, Riot model. And I'm having an issue that I've seen on other 1897s that I don't know how to fix. The Issue: Once the hammer is cocked back, when...

    Just today acquired a lovely older Winchester 1897. appears to have a 20 inch barrel, doesn't look like it was cut. it's marked 'CYL', so that's also a pretty good indication it wasn't cut. the barrel appears a 1910, and the receiver a 1937 production? not sure. the pump slide is marked...

    Howdy! There's been an M1917 Winchester rifle sitting in my local gun shop for close to a year now. It came out of an estate, and the estate people are apparently quite prickly about pricing. They want $1200 for it, but I was told I could probably get it down to $1050. Now, looking over the...

    Hey all, I have recently acquired a model 1892 Winchester that was refinished. I plan on keeping it so I don’t need to know what it is worth, but I’d like to figure out when it was made and as much as I could about it. It is an octagonal barrel, .38 WCF (or .38-40 if you prefer). It is in rifle...

    Hey all, I have recently acquired a third generation 1873 Winchester in .22 short that serial dates to 1891. It was in pretty good shape when I got it, just caked in decades old grease that cleaned up nicely. It was missing the dustcover which doesn’t really bug me so I’ll either replace it or...

    What can you tell me about this shotgun? The only thing I’ve found is it shouldn’t be nickel or chrome. What do you think the story is of it and it’s value?

    I am looking for the book " The Forgotten Winchesters: A History of the Models 1905, 1907, and 1910 Self-Loading Rifles. The book was published in 1995 and there are supposedly 500 of them floating around in the wild. I have seen prices range from $300 for a great condition used copy to $500 for...

    I inherited an 1897 12 gauge Winchester shotgun. Looking at the serial number it looks like it was made in 1904 or 1905 depending on which source. My goal here is to stop any current active rust and protect the firearm for the next generations. There is active rust on it where it looks like...

  13. Winchester And Lever Action Board
    My buddy picked up this gun not to long back at a good price. After going thru it and cycling some dummy rounds before taking it out to shoot, it had some loading issues. When you go to pull the lever back after pushing it forward cocking it, the round wants to jam on the way in. Mabey one in...
