Well I know there's a lot of us here that collect Winchester memorabilia so lets see your most treasured piece or pieces ! I've got so much stuff in boxes waiting for my Winchester man cave room to get finished but here's 2 items I really enjoy.I hope you like them as much as me !

The ring I bought from a rep that worked at the Canadian plant and the firing pin display I just bought.It was issued to the warranty centres for replacing the firing pins in the Model 100's.The brass plaque inside reads " in appreciation of your support of the model 100 project.I've been collecting the Winchester 88 & 100's for about 30 yrs so this is a nice addition !

I don't know if this qualifies as memorabilia but I have lots of 73 tooling and gauges that I feel very lucky to have collected.

Mike,

I have others I haven't taken photos of. Some for the 92, 94, 95 and some tools are marked for multiple models. I also saw that when the 73 went from the long tang butt plate to the short tang  they modified the tool rather than make a new one. In picture Butt 1, 2 and 3 you can see the remnant of the bushing hole for the long tang hole.

Well, Ive got some of the chamber gages, a couple of roll dies and some of the SN stamps, but that's about it.

Bob

What gages do you have for the 94s

Has anyone ran across a 1918 US Ammunition Die Cut before and happen to know what the value of this would be? From what my dad told me, he said that this is almost 100 years old and has a picture of a man petting a cheetah and there is ammunition pictured on both sides. I couldn't figure out how to attach a picture here. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Please feel free to email me personally at angcoleman23@hotmail.com if you would like to see a picture or have any info! 

 

Thanks!

Angie
