Winchester 1897 Trench Gun
We have carefully recreated the famous Winchester Model 1897 12 Ga Trench Gun using original Winchester Model 1897 12 Ga shotguns. We buy decent used Winchester shotguns which are then totally torn down, cleaned, worn parts replaced, re-blued, reassembled and tested for proper function. Chambers are re-cut to correctly accomodate modern fold crimp plastic shot shells. We add a correct reproduction bayonet lug/heat shield and rear sling swivel. When finished these are an excellent representation of the original factory guns, ready for display or use.
March 24, 2020: We are reopening the wait list. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name and phone number. We are working on guns everyday and are quickly catching up. We are still shipping guns every day and will continue to do so. The current Covid-19 problem is going to create a temporary parts supply issue soon that we hope will be resolved by late April. We will continue to complete as many guns as possible so that when parts arrive it will be a simple matter to do final assembly and testing.
