Designed by John M. Browning as a safer and sturdier improvement over his previous Model 1893, the Winchester Model 1897 would become the most popular shotgun on the American market until its discontinuation in 1957 when hammerless designs became common. Over one million examples were produced, having set standard in pump shotgun design still seen to this day. The Model 1897 was offered in numerous barrel lengths and grades, chambered in 12 and 16 gauge, and as a solid frame or takedown. This Trap example from 1900 is a 12 gauge with takedown frame.

  1. Fred Csiky

    This 97 is happy now,it received the attention that it deserves and the loving ability of trained eyes and hands combined wifh the knowledge of what it once was. And the sweeping grain pattern on that wildwood stock? Only from God.
