Picked up a fair condition Winchester model 97 serial # 870263 E series take down model.  It has a 26 inch barrel with a modified choke.  Also it has a matted frame.  The serial numbers match.  I can’t find any info on a matted frame besides the Tournament series.  The barrel on this one is plain not matted and has field grade stock.  Any info would be appreciated.

Which gauge is it… a 12-ga or 16-ga ?  The S/N makes it an October, 1931 production gun.  Can you post clear pictures of it (or send them to me) ?

The 26-inch barrel length is definitely uncommon for a 12-ga Model 1897 that is not a Brush Gun.  I would like to see pictures of this gun.
