 What were the grades of the Winchester Model 101 Japan shotguns?Had heard that Field Grade was the lowest and Diamond Grade was the highest.Does any one know if that is true?

Not sure how this fits in as far as grading, but I had a pair of 101 20 gauge Pigeon Grades. One was 28" Modified / Full and the other was 26" Improved Cylinder / Modified. They had the silver frames and gorgeous wood, and came with the luggage case to carry them in. I think I paid somewhere in the $750 price range. Bought them in the late 70's or early 80's. Nice shotguns.     RRM

 Thanks for that information.Near as I can understand, the Pigeon Grade was just below the Diamond Grade,but not 100 % sure of that.Been looking on line and it appears the Diamond Grade skeet guns came with a recoil pad.Even those  Diamond Grade skeet guns in 28 gauge,that I have looked at on line had ,a recoil pad.


  I have a Field Grade Model 101 in 28 gauge.No recoil pad.
