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.
$1599 plus shipping and handling
June 28, 2020: Based on the current backlog, we are closing the wait list until we can catch up and provide a reasonable lead time. .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. The current Covid-19 problem has caused a temporary parts supply issue that we hope will be resolved by early July. 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. As your name comes up on the list, we'll contact you as soon as we have a gun available. If you have a gun of your own, lead time is under 3 weeks (If current parts shortage resolves itself by early July)
