Winchester Model 42 410 gauge shotgun. Field Grade take-down pump action 410, shotgun made in 1954, with 28” full choke barrel. Beautiful near mint condition. No issues with all original metallic finish or wooden stock/forearm, bore, original unaltered butt-stock,action, etc. with exception of a very fine scratch about ¾” on the right side of the receiver just above the trigger guard shown in image 5 above. This is not a deep scratch, doesn't penetrate through entire bluing and could possibly be buffed out by a professional or simply left alone since in my opinion it isn’t a big deal. This issue did not preclude me from buying this gun and I am extremely particular when it comes to a firearm’s condition. Otherwise the all original factory bluing/metal on this entire gun is in shiny new condition, and as you can see from the images above the stock and forearm are basically perfect, no dings, dents, or scratches –rare for an old gun such as this. In image 5 it looks like there is smudging/rusting on certain areas on the right side of the frame however this is actually my image reflecting onto the gun in the photo. Both sides of the frame are mint with the exception of the small scratch I've discussed above. I can not over-emphasize how perfect this gun is. I have not fired this arm and it looks like it has had very little if any field or other use since it was originally purchased in 1954. This gun is in incredible condition for its 63 years in existence and often these Model 42's are pretty beat up when they eventually show up for sale, or after-market modifications such as Simmons vent ribs and/or recoil pads have been added and people still want a lot money for them. The gun for sale here is completely factory original. I am pricing this gun well below its current market value based on my current online subscription of Blue Book of Gun Values. I'll be happy to provide you with additional images of this gun from any angle and of any part of the gun. I offer a 100% money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with any purchase from me on Gunsamerica including this purchase, and as always I pay insured shipping to the FFL of your choice in the continental US.If you're looking for a deep pre-64 Winchester Model 42 in fantastic condition then this one would be hard to improve upon especially at this price.
