There’s a Model 1901 up for an auction that states that its a 12 ga. S/N is 46164

Did Winchester ever make the Model 1901 in 12ga and what would be the manufacturing date for it?

Corey – Winchester only manufactured the Model 1901 in 10 gauge. The serial number noted has a manufacturing date of 1892 so maybe the gun in the auction is a Model 1887. If you are interested in a Model 1901, I have a nice one for sale – advertised on the Forum.

As Burt mentioned, S/N 46184 was manufactured in July 1892.  Accordingly, it is a Model 1887, not a Model 1901.  Furthermore, it should also have a case color finished receiver frame.  If it ss blued, it has been refinished.

Thanks Bert,

That’s what I was suspecting. The finish is definitely not case hardened. The 1887/1901 is one of those curiosities that I have been keeping an eye out for. Not too sure I want to go with the 10 ga 1901, but since I won’t be doing a lot of shooting with it I don’t suppose it would matter.

My bottom line is a good example of the gun. I’ll mull over your offering and let you know.
