I have a Winchester Model 97 12 Gauge 2 3/4 chamber Full choke.

Number on barrel has a letter "E" above the serial number. The serial number starts with 1020xxx.
Any idea as to what year it is? And perhaps the value of it? Thanks. Billy.

Your gun is pretty near the end of production in the 1950s. By September 1951 Winchester had reached the 1,000,000th Model 1897/97, and total production was about 1,024,700 ending in 1957. As far as value goes, everything depends on condition and originality -- $195 to $450.

I too have a Winchester Model 1897 full choke 12 gauge & my serial # is L-72982 or 1-72982...couldn't tell if it was an "L" or a "1"...( the hypen mark on mine looks prominent, it does not look like a scratch)but the "E" on mine is below the serial number not above it. This was my old quail gun in the 1960's. The gun has not been fired since then. I have a very small amount of pitting on it and it probably needs to be re-blued. The stock has very minute small scratches......so I too wonder what I could get for it today?

I just saw same gun model as mine and photos on another website-very similar condition as mine above, serial number range almost the same and he is asking $495 for his.

So, $200-$500? range....would you say? Thanks in advance for any help on this.
