The Model 42 is an icon in the ranks of Winchester firearms, made in the days of the highest quality control and hand fitted parts. The Model 42 was a flawlessly produced little pump gun, chambered only for the diminutive .410 shotgun shell. In the 30 years of production that ran from 1933 to 1963, almost 160,000 of these fine guns were produced. A very large percentage were Standard Grade guns, and there were also Skeet Grades, Trap Grades, Deluxe Grades, and rarely a Pigeon Grade. IN ALL THERE WERE LESS THAN 400 DELUXE GRADES EVER MADE BY THE FACTORY. In Ned Schwing's book "THE WINCHESTER MODEL 42" he describes the Deluxe Grade as a continuation of the Trap Grade that was in production from 1934 to 1939 with only 231 guns produced. The Deluxe Grade took the place of the Trap Grade with the same distinguishing features, namely XXX wood, double diamond 20-line-per-inch checkered forend, single diamond checkered stock, and all fitted with the utmost care. In the transition era between 1939 and the beginning of WWII, the Deluxe Grade did not have a jeweled bolt and carrier as a standard feature, but was available on special order. The jeweled bolt and carrier did not come along as a standard feature until after the war. With so few Deluxe Grade Model 42 guns ever made, if you want an example in your collection you may choose to consider a gun that has had some restorations done to the gun. The Model 42 Deluxe shown here, sn43635 built in 1941, is a beautiful example of a Deluxe Grade gun with all the correct features; gorgeous wood with double diamond checkering pattern, solid factory rib, and hand polished parts. Just look at the 3X wood, superb hand-rubbed oil finish, and it is definitive factory wood on the gun. The 26” solid rib barrel has a mirror bore and SKEET choke. The chamber is factory 3” so you can shoot the heavier shells for hunting birds and rabbits. THIS IS A GORGEOUS EXAMPLE OF WINCHESTER’S HIGHEST OFFERING IN THE MODEL 42 LINE. Of course, everything Winchester will always be collectible, and values will always continue to climb, as they are not being made any longer. This gun has been used in the past so no need to hesitate shooting the gun at clays or for your next woodcock hunt. Thanks for looking!
