Win 101 Through its Ages

1097 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  KJB
Shotgun Sports had a good article about the Win 101 from its genesis to its demise this past summer. My question is for 101 afficionados: How much stock dimensional differences occured through the ages? Are the dimensions and sight plain vastly different between the Trap Grade, Diamond Grade, etc., and where the dimensions and sight plain different through the years of different manufacturers? And, didn't Nikko produce a 101 for a year or two?

Not exactly according to the 20th Edition of the Blue Book. Nikko was a brand name used by Kodensha to market guns independently of Winchester. Kodensha, in apparent violation of its agreement with Winchester, made and distributed guns to a variety of dealers and companies.

I can't answer the questions about stock dimensions only to note the 101 has a reputation for being a hard kicker. My recent purchase of a three barrel skeet set leads me to conclude that their stocks are often quite short which may have something to do with that reputation.
