hi all, new member here.

i am looking for any information regarding the field stripping/cleaning of this model shotgun. i have scoured the web and can only find information on the cleaning of a model 1897. can anyone here help me out?

i know that this is black powder only gun using 2 1/2" shells... so please, no posts about that unless you are going to recommend a certain load. thanks!

Hello,

I am in the process of conducting a research survey of the Model 1893. I would very much like to add your gun (the serial number) to the list of guns that I have recorded thus far. I can provide you with any information that is contained in the factory records if you do not already have it.

The instructions you are looking for were contained in the original Winchester catalogs. You can purchase a reproduction (copy) from Cornell Publications - http://www.cornellpubs.com/

I will need to scan it from one of my catalogs, then send it to you via an email message.

The reproduction catalogs that Abby sells are usually in the $12 - $19 price range... very reasonable in my opinion.

works published before 1923 (like a winchester catalog containing information for the field strip of a model 1893) are public domain. and it's my opinion that such kinds of information shouldn't be charged for, especially in this digital age, eg: google books. but we all are entitled to have our own opinions. 🙂
