The most made in takedown were the Model 12s. Then there were the Model 42s.

Depends on what you mean by takedown. My model 61 in .22 shot will takedown. My model 20 .410 will takedown and my model 41 will takedown. Actually all Winchester shotguns except the models 87 and 1901 and the solid frame (non takedown) model 97 and model 25 are all takedowns. However, I am not sure about the model 85 in 20 gauge as I have never seen a takedown model.

Bill,

Of the (900) or so Model 1885 Single Shot 20-Ga shotguns that were manufacturd, 60% of them were take downs.

Bert, thanks for the info. I have only seen one 85 20 gauge, and it was a solid frame. Happened to be laying on a pool table in a hunting camp in upstate NY, 35 years ago. I was unable to talk the owner out of it.

So am I correct that ALL Model 12s are "takedown" models despite most of them listed for sale these days NOT being advertised as "Takedown" models??
Thanks for humoring me on this ultra-basic question!!! Bill Embarassed

Bill,

Yes, all Model 1912 (12) shotguns were take downs, as were all of the Model 1911 (11), and Model 42 shotguns.

There are lots of ignorant sellers out there.
