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.
These guns take the 1913/1917 bayonet used on the US Model 1917 Rifle and British P14.

October 17, 2020: Based on the current backlog the wait list is still closed until we can catch up and provide a reasonable lead time. Best guess is that the list will re-open around the first of the year. We are working on guns every day and are slowly catching up. We are still shipping guns every day and will continue to do so. Past parts problems have been resolved. As your name comes up on the list, we'll contact you as soon as we have a gun available. FASTEST WAY TO ACQUIRE A TRENCH GUN: If you have an 1897 Winchester 12 Ga of your own, lead time is under 4 weeks. Generally $895 plus $45 return shipping if wood is useable. You can send it to us directly without going through an FFL and we can return it directly to you.
