Winchester Shotguns

I had a Model 12 Featherweight (1959-1962, 12 ga only)  when I was a kid, and just found a nice one. Mine was full choke, this one is modified. I failed to clean up some extra gun oil before the photo session.

The 16 ga in the middle was cut down for a recoil pad and the stock is short (even with the pad) so I added a removable pad. The full choke has been opened to IM. 1959

The Model 42 is from 1938, modified choke. I had every intention of full restoration but it will only be in original condition once. I can live with bumps, bruises and metal dings.

 Nice group of Winchester pump guns.Like you I would not restore the Model 42,one can live with some dings etc.They add to the life and story of the gun, as it was intended to be used ,in the field.In my opinion.:)

Nice addition, care to tell us about the addition? Looks like it would be right at home on a skeet field near me. 😉
