WINCHESTER MODEL 97 16 GAUGE
Receiver is an early receiver with 124k serial number. The barrel is a later marked 97 in a 16 gauge. Full choke and 2-3/4" chambers. Was evidently changed at some point. Metal finish is very good. There is a sling swivel that has been soldered on to the tube. Stock is also a later variety and in good condition. Nice fitting. Towards the heal is some poor storage. Forearm is near perfect. Bore is near excellent. A lot of people like the 16 gauge for upland birds. This would be a fine gun for that.
