Winchester Model 42 - TWO BARREL SET DOUBLE DIAMOND, CASED  Guns > Shotguns > Winchester Shotguns - Modern > Pump Action > Trap/Skeet
Description: Winchester Model 42 .410 Gauge Shotgun


General Specs: Winchester, Year 1951, .410 Gauge, 28"=6lbs 6oz, 26"=6lbs 1oz, Pump Shotgun

Serial Number: 98120

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 Field Grade guns, and there were also Skeet Grades, Trap Grades, and the Deluxe 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. In 1946 the Deluxe Grade took the place of the Trap Grade with the same distinguishing features, namely the jeweled bolt and carrier, XXX wood, double diamond 20 line per inch checkered forend, single diamond checkered stock, and on a very few of the Deluxe guns a stamping on the receiver below the serial number declaring the gun a "DELUXE". Schwing notes that this stamping ceased in 1949. This gorgeous little M42, sn98120, was built in the early to mid 1950’s, with the receiver stamped with a serial number somewhere around 1951. It is well known in the Winchester collectors community that they did not use the receivers in strict order and that guns would be put together with serial numbers from years before actual use. It is a very rare find in that it has 2 sets of factory barrels, both with donut post ventilated ribs, one 28” choked Full, the other 26” choked skeet. The stock and forearms are nicely figured American walnut with the double diamond checkering pattern and a straight style grip on the buttstock. The 26” barrel is the one that saw most use and it has just a bit of wear from shucking shells likely when shooting skeet. The 28” barrel is 99.5% showing little use. The set is nicely cased in a proper gold canvas case with Winchester trade label. This is a rare find and a fine set for the shooter/collector of Winchester Model 42’s. Thanks for looking.
