Good morning,

I have two factory new WINCHESTER Model 12, 12 Ga, standard weight, 20-1/2 inches long barrels w/ bead sights. WINCHESTER factory markings. Bore is marked as RIOT rather than CYL.

1) What is the history of this barrel/shotgun?

2) When manufactured?

All the best

Can you provide clear pictures of the markings on the barrels?  Based on the “RIOT” marking, I suspect that they are not actually Winchester factory barrels.
