Winchester 12, 12 Ga 2 3/4, 30" full, vent rib, checkered stock, real nice walnut, jeweled bolt and lifter, red Winchester recoil pad, guns is used, but looks real good, minor dings and scratches. Hairline cracks on stock on both sides of receiver S/N Y2020xxx. What was this gun made for? Trap? Ducks?

Winchester 12, 12 ga 2 3/4, 28" mod, plain walnut, plain barrel, well used but works great. S/N 1629xxx

Thanks. Dean

First gun as made in 1972 or 73. One of the "Y" series. Sounds like a Trap Gun but could be a Field Gun, depends on the stock dimensions.

Second gun was made in 1955.

Hello, I just purchased my first Super X Model 1 Winchester, and I am very curious to its age. It is a 12 gauge field model, 28" modified choke barrel with rib (screw type), checkered stock, walnut wood, serial #M56116.

Thank You!

Well, there is no good serial # list for the SX1.
They were made from 1974 to 1984. Just less than 90000 were made.
Your gun was likely made about 1980 or so.

Value and/or date of mfg help us help you, will need:
Model #, barrel(s) length, choke(s), plain, solid rib, vent rib, stlye of stocks, plain walnut, checkered, to date it will need the S/N like this 654xxx or 1566xxx you get the idea.
Note: dating a Post 64 gun is not as easy as the pre 64 guns. Not much has been published.
Regards Dave

No records available. They were serialized with the Model 1400s.
Serial #s started at 100000 in 1964.
By January 1980, 750,000 guns had been made, I would suggest your gun was made in the early to mid '70s.

Mid to late '80s. Hard to pin it down much closer.

Ole Cowboy, thanks for the info. I called Winchester today and the guy I talked to said they didn't have much info on the Diamond grade guns. All he could tell from the serial number was that it was shipped to somewhere in Illinois. Thanks again!

I have a Winchester Model 12 16 ga., from what I have found it was made in 1948, under the serial number on the receiver the gun is stamped skeet and it has two barrels one marked ws-1 and the other marked Imp. Mod.

Was curious of the approximate value of this gun.

Thanks,

Winchester Model 50. 28 inch plain, full choke barrel. Checkered walnut stock. Excellent to like new condition. I don't have the serial number. Would like to know approximate value and date range when the Model 50s were produced. Thanks!

Winchester 101. Solid rib. 30 inch tubes. tubes were marked full/full but Briley installed their thin walled chokes. Japanese manufactured and the engraving along with the checkering appears to have been done by hand. The walnut stock had been stained to address a bit of sapwood in the butt. Serial 81xxx. For what it's worth, Keith Heeg installed an adjustable comb and butt plate as well.

I know 101s are currently being sold, but they appear to be of a different manufacturing (reciever looks different). Are there any other differences or are they largely interchangeable.

Hi First post, Just picked up a Ted Williams model 200 20 ga P320326
looks almost new just curious as to age and a few questions
so it is basically a Winchester 1200 or 1300, it has a 28" barrel vented but no choke
it says 3 CHAM MOD
does that mean it has been modified to shoot 3" shells and if so will it still shoot 2 3/4" shells
also without the choke I am assuming it's safe to shoot slugs and did some of them come without the choke?
thanks in advance for the help
