Winchester Model 1897 12 Ga Trench Gun

Brand: Bull Creek Arms
Product Code: winch_model_1897
Price: $1,399.00

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/heat shield and rear sling swivel. When finished these are an excellent representation of the original factory guns, ready for display or use.

Why buy a Chinese knockoff when you can own an original 1897 Winchester in Trench Gun configuration for $1000’s of dollars less than a documented original? Unplugged 5 round magazine with one in the chamber for 6 round maximum capacity. These guns take the original US Model 1913/1917 Bayonet.
