I’m hoping I can get some help. My father in law told me “if anyone would know, these guys would”. So here I am. I recently purchased an 1897 Winchester. All is good except I paid very little, and it looks too perfect to be the real deal. The serial number puts it as 1906 with a D prefix. “D324740” I’m familiar with newer firearms but the older, originals, not so. I’ll include some pictures for all to look at, but I’ve found if it’s too good to be true???Well, y’all understand. It’s got some scratches on the receiver where obviously someone tried to open the takedown feature with a screwdriver (can be easily repaired) but the rest is immaculate. Is it original? Has it been restored? Do they make replica’s with Winchester written and stamped? Has it just been put up for 100+ years? Any and all opinions and help will be very appreciated. Thanks Alan
I'm having problems finding good once fired 12ga shotshells. I like the green 2 3/4 Remingtons but it seems that no one has them anymore. Sooo, I've been thinking of getting new unprimed Cheddite hulls. My question is this - can I use Winchester 209 primers in those hulls? Thanks TC
when shooting frontier in any category I know that the rifle and pistol are done with black powder, does the shotgun have to be black powder as well? I can't seem to find 12 gauge shells made in black powder, and don't have the ability to reload shotgun shell yet
I have two Winchester 1897 shotguns for sale. Just have to many to fit in the safe. One is a compilation of several guns, has a new stock and works well. It has a hole in the receiver from a past repair and is definitely not stock, it has a Cowboys and Indians ejector and past action job. I want $400 for it and I'll pay shipping to your FFL. The other is in good shape. The stock is worn and the forestock does not match. The gun ejects fair but could use a new quality ejector. I want $300 for that one shipped to your FFL. Take em both for $650 or make me an offer! As far as trading goes, I could use a 1911 I could use for Traditional Wild Bunch. I have pictures I can email on request till I figure out how to post them here.
