What can you tell me about the Winchester 12gauge Model 97 WJ6 Moc shotgun New Haven.

We inherited it from a deceased family member.

Hello Darryl,

Can you provide clear pictures of it? I do not know what “WJ6 Moc” means ?? It should have a serial number stamped on the bottom of the receiver frame just above the loading port… what is it (including any letter above the numerals) ?

Serial number is 873091 made in 1939 I think. I took it partially apart and now the hammer stays in the cocked position.  Also cannot find a correct parts breakdown for the right extractor assembly.  Any help you can give is appreciated.

Model 97 S/N 873091 was manufactured in November 1931 versus 1939.  Nearly all of the DOM lists you will find scattered about the internet for the Model 1897/97 are grossly inaccurate.

When you say “took it partially apart” are you referring to using the take down feature, or did you physically remove parts from the receiver group?

The attachment is the exploded view diagram and parts list for a standard Model 1897/97.

I figured it out.  

I did not receive the diagram and parts attachment 

Thank for your help on this topic.
