That picture was courtesy of Kirby the Gunsmith many years ago when I was going through my 1300 phase. I never had a bolt issue on my 1300 shotguns. I sometimes buy them now for a bargain and fix them up for a kid or friend who has no shotgun to use. I let them keep it until they can do better if they seem grateful in my eyes. Been through a couple dozen so far. No failures

Yes - I think all the 1300s had the third version with no screw. Wondering whether it's worth upgrading one of my 1200s or whether broken screws are like getting hit by lightning - a big problem if it happens, but extremely unlikely to happen. ;)

I have no idea about changing out the bolt. I do have a 1300 defender and never have had any issues with it. Always boom, rack, and boom. Wash, rinse, repeate.

For what it is worth it runs.

This thread lasted far longer than most of these low end Winchester shotguns.

Only longer than sales. The guns themselves are still going, even the 140/1400s. Lots of 1200s still in service, and they typically go for really short dollars when they show up used, even in very good condition.

Obtained a 1300 complete bolt assembly. Dropped in perfectly (no surprise) and headspace passes the field expedient test. I'd forgotten what a potential liability that screw could be. Glad to be rid of that one.
