…number 2000081. Any help greatly appreciated.

You have at least one too many digits in the serial number.  Production of the Model 97 ended at S/N 1024701 on September 30, 1957.

…Ken,

For the most part, we at the WACA focus on the Pre-1964 production Winchester firearms. That stated, the Model 131 was a short-lived and low production rifle. It was introduced in 1967 and was last listed in the 1972 catalog. The listed production was

…yours (52040 & 52561), but I did not note anything peculiar about the serial number marking on either one of them.  The earliest Take Down Model 1897 I have found thus far is serial number 48866 & 48870 and both were marked on the receiver and take down extension.

…recently acquired an early 1897, SN 53031, which as I understand it puts it at around just 1,700 SN above the first takedowns for this model.  After lettering it, I was able to confirm that this is a true early takedown Brush gun, and from appearances and condition, I believe that…

…or anything like that as the markings for the barrel and SN on the receiver are still quite crisp.  Is this common or seen on early 1897 takedown models or is this possibly an oversight/new practice at the time?  The SN was applied on June 16, 1898.

I'm also curious how many earlier takedown

Hello Micah,

Your Model 12 was manufactured in November 1963. The odds are extremely high that the stocks are an aftermarket "upgrade".

…can't figure out what I am doing wrong!  I just paid the big money for a Winchester Model 21 from Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Company.  The day it arrived it was absolutely beautiful!  I took it to my gun club and it drew quite the…

…and fired again.  Both barrels shot again at the same time.  I selected the other barrel and the same thing happened.  I fired 10 times and the Model 21 fired both barrels at the same time 8 of the 10 times.

I reached out to Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Company. They graciously paid to…

…to wonder if there is some user error on my part?  Am I assembling the gun improperly?  I could not find any examples of anyone else having a model 21 double fire like that.

Please help a new Model 21 owner!

…! I have a rather “unique” Model 12 to my understanding and was hoping to get some help!

I have a model 12 with the serial number of 1966687. From my research, it is a standard model 12. However, it has a tiger maple Monte Carlo stock without a cheek…

… squared off diamond inside it.

It is not stamped “Trap” or has the two arrows facing each other, so it didn’t leave the factory as a trap model at least. Is it possible this was in Winchester’s custom shop? 

I would include pictures but am new and not sure how to do that on this forum.

…in 40-70 Sharpes Straight and another in 40-70 Ballard... and no reloading tool or bullet mold for either!

Bert

  

If its a Winchester Model 1894 Reloading Tool, its for the 40-70 W.C.F.

The 1875 & 1882 Tools were in the other 40-70 calibers.

…- I think you make a good point.  However there are many exceptions to this.  For example, there's a large percentage of records lost for models such as the Model 1892, 1894 and 1895 Winchesters.  Also, while the M1886 has a larger percentage of records available, there are research efforts

… box with all cartridges being nearly identical in condition, and with the same head stamp. Winchester made a different style shot cartridge for the Model 1876 Repeater that has a cardboard bullet shaped shot carrier.

Winchester manufactured 254 high-wall rifles in 50-95 W.C.F.  The upper rifle

Rick,  What is it you're so concerned about protecting?  Doesn't sound like it's a Model 75.

…it is a half-magazine takedown (and the letter likely will match the configuration), it doesn't mean parts weren't replaced.  However, I have a model 53 where the receiver finish and takedown ring finish look identical to this one - and I believe the rifle is original.

….  I believe that interest in these will increase because compared to most pre-64's are still somewhat affordable for new in box condition models, and are attractive to younger collectors who are just getting into the hobby.

…seems to be real fascination for a low serial number gun at the auctions. In September of 2019, at a Rock Island auction, a Model 1894 in serial #8 sold for $57,500 (before the juice). Also, a Model 1886, serial #8 sold for $54,625 (before the juice). Both of these…

…in my opinion, the guns were original and correct. You don't often see single digit serial number Winchesters. I was fortunate enough to own a Model 55 in deluxe configuration, serial #5, for about 30 years and often wish I had kept it. But, I was the lucky caretaker for a long time and I know
