This is a real, original Winchester, Cowboy Action modified, Model 1897, the full choke barrel shortened to 20" for quick handling and good shot pattern up close. It was originally made in 1912, serial #516xxx. Metal is virtually all bare, but no rust. The stocks are sound (no cracks or splits at the wrist), and the slightly fancy butt stock is fitted with a Winchester Patent date, hard red recoil pad (length of pull 13.25"). The bore is fine with no pits or rust, and the action is smooth. This is an ideal 12 gauge Cowboy gun, ready for the stages! We can take VISA or MasterCard for an additional 2% fee.
Priority U.S. Mail, insured.
