The Model 59 was the fourth semi-auto shotgun model that Winchester manufactured. It was introduced in January of 1960, and discontinued in 1965.
The reason the gun kicks as hard as it does is due to several things;
1. The receiver frame is made of high-strength aluminum alloy versus milled steel. Consequently it is much lighter in weight.
2. The barrels are made of 500-miles of glass fiber that were wound around, fused and bonded to a thin steel liner. Traditional shotgun barrels are solid cold rolled steel... again, the Win-Lite barrels are lighter in weight.
3. The action operates on the short recoil principle. The barrel does not move. Instead, it has a floating chamber that moves back a fraction of an inch when fired, and that contacts the bolt with enough energy to send it all the way to the rear against a spring.
If your gun is in "Excellent" condition, it is worth $600, and add an additional $200 for the extra barrel.
From a personal standpoint, I would not advise shooting the gun on a regular basis, and when/if you do, do not use Magnum loads, and more importantly, never use steel shot loaded shells.

And to answer your question, I would say No, due to the construction of the barrel, and the build up of heat. No one seems to have tried it and worldwide there are restrictions to 3 shots only, which makes it more widely saleable.

Anyway, if you can't hit something with three shots, you are unlikely to hit it with the next two!

The year of manufacture for serial number 2122887 is 1955
If it is in 90% condition it is worth about $600. Almost perfect will get you to $900. Only very approximate..Good Luck...Pete
