Our Assessment: The iconic Model 101 is a shotgun with legendary styling and handling and the unquestionable reliability you expect from Winchester firearms. This is a 28″ barrel example chambered for 20 Gauge 2 3/4″ and 3″ shells choked Improved full over Modified. Showing very little use and still having assembly lube on the action this would be an excellent addition to any shotgun collection or gun collection for that matter. This gun is solid with bright bores and strong mechanics. It will make a fine hunting or sporting shotgun. Please see our photos and good luck!
