Resurrection? There is no resurrection. The term "Speed Pump" was just new markings(a sales thing) that were added to the Model 1300, around 2000 or so, and used till they were discontinued in 2006. The term "Speed Pump" first showed up in the 1995 catalog.

There is a post in the Shotguns General section of the boards about a new Speed Pump and a new Model 70 to be introudeced in 2008 with the Winchester name.From the post it would appear that the Model 70 will be made in the U.S. but is unclear as to where the Speed Pump will be made.

Well wb, since you didn't believe me before, try the website I mentioned in the other posts about this. For everyone else, I spied an updated Canadian dealer online catalog that showed some new Winchesters. One of them was a new Flanigan edition/Sporting SX3, complete with red receiver, and the other was a new pump called the Speed Pump. It is definately not the old 1300. Check out the new receiver contours, barrel and rib, chokes, etc. I'm not sure how he got these guns in his catalog already, as I too haven't found any other info anywhere on them. But hey, see for yourself at Wholesalesports.com, click on hunting, then firearms, and go from there.

:arrow: Never said I didn't believe you just never heard of them being re-released. As for being a all new gun I don't really think so but I could be wrong.
Still looks and sound like a re-hashed 1300, which is a re-hashed 1200......which I vary familiar with, since having a 20 gauge for the last 21 years. Also the Defender up toward the top looks very close to my brothers too, although there have been a few cosmetic changes but still looks like the same basic gun. :)
:idea: Actually it would be nice to see them brought out again since they are good solid shooters. 8)

Sorry wb, I stand corrected. You're right, it's not an 'all new' gun, but it's definately been updated from the previous 1300 model. Updated enough for me that, on looks alone, I will really consider getting one.
Ole Cowboy, the site where this info is coming from is an outdoor goods dealer in Alberta. The website is Wholesalesports.com. Sorry for no link to it, haven't mastered that yet.

Hey guys,

I would imagine the 1300 would be made @ the plant in South Carolina (where the model 70 will be manufactured). The 1300 platform is the basis for herstal's tactical pump shotgun, so putting walnut furniture and bluing the metal shouldn't be a problem.

Even if the gun is assembled in the U.S. I would expect parts to be sourced "world wide".
