I recently acquired a Model 101 12 guage and I’m trying to find out a little about it. I called Winchester customer service and the only thing they were able to provide me with was that the gun was made in 1968.  The gun has a single barrel but looks like it may have been an over and under?  Is this an original configuration or was the barrel changed out?

The Model 101 was/is an O/U (2-barrel) shotgun.

 It seems to me, I remember there being a 12 gauge single shot trap version of the Japanese made Winchester Model 101.I believe they had a longer 34 inch barrel and were full choke.

Thank you, this is what I may have. I just measured and the barrel is 34″.  The dual firing pins are why I was thinking someone changed out the barrel

Folks, let me chip in here a bit of info.  Seems to me, years ago a Diamond Grade Trap set was available with a pair of 30 inch barrels plus a single (believe it was an “over” barrel) barrel of a longer length.  My trap shooting buddy has one and only shoots his single barrel on the over/under configured frame.  Assuming the single barrel is matched and correct to the receiver (which may not be true), the double barrels have gotten separated from the set and lost or they were damaged beyond repair and disposed of previously.  This “Trap” version does not have a safety on the top tang.  NOT familiar enough to say where the barrel selector is tho.  I do not know the period of time this gun was available for sale, but Keith has had it for quite a few years now.  Tim
