Anything you can tell me about Winchester Model 97 Ser# 201413. when it was made and value.


The Winchester Model 1897 evolved from the Winchester Model 1893. The Model 1897 and 1893 were both designed by John Browning. The Model 1897 is an external hammer shotgun lacking a trigger disconnector. This means that the user can hold the trigger down while cycling the shotgun and once the action is returned to battery the gun fires. The gun itself is classified as a slide action pump shotgun. It was the first truly successful pump-action shotgun produced. Throughout the time period the Model 1897 was in production, over a million of the type were produced in various grades and barrel lengths. 16-gauge guns had a standard barrel length of 28 inches, while 12-gauge guns were furnished with 30-inch length barrels. Special length barrels could be ordered in lengths as short as 20 inches, and as long as 36 inches. Along with various grades and barrel lengths, the Model 1897 came in two different chamberings. One was the 12 gauge and the other was the 16 gauge. The shells should be of the 2-¾ inch or 2-? inch model. Any shells larger are not recommended. An average Model 1897 held 5 shotgun shells in the magazine tube. After including the one shell that could be held in the chamber, the average Model 1897 held a total of 6 shotgun shells. However, this would vary from grade to grade. When working the action of the Model 1897 the forend (fore grip) is pulled back, forcing the breech bolt to the rear which extracts and then ejects the spent shell while simultaneously cocking the external hammer by pushing it to the rear. When the forend is slid forward again, the breech bolt pushes a fresh shell into the gun's chamber and locks into place. This action of sliding the forend back and forth (pumping) is why the gun is classified as a slide action (or pump) gun.

Mossberg 500, shell will not eject


did you check the elevator to make sure its not applying the pressure on the cartridge interrupter and cartridge stop? or that one or both aren't damaged and over bent. the ejector slot on the bolt isn't damaged, or the action slide bars.

Remington 1100 wont eject or load another shell


check and see if the shell stop hasn't broken loose. this on the inside left side of the action . this could stopping the next shell in the mag. from being loaded. this not uncommon. but is an easy fix. a gun smith can stake it back in . in a few minutes for around $20.00

When was my winchester model 12 16ga shotgun serial#787927 manfactured?


Nicknamed, the Perfect Repeater at its introduction, this shotgun se tthe standard for pump action shotguns throughout its fifty one (51) year high rate manufacture and production life. From 1912 until the shotgun was first discontinued by Winchester in 1963, nearly two million Model 12 shotguns were manufactured and produced in various barrel lengths and grades. Initially the M12 was chambered strictly for 20 gauge, however 12 and 16 gauge versions came out in or around 1914, and the 28 gauge version of the Winchester Model 12 came out in 1934. A .410 version was never produced; instead, a stripped down variation of the Model 12, commonly known as the Model 42, was derived directly from scaled drawings of the model 12 and produced instead. The year of manufacture for serial number 787927 is 1939. hope this helps! im pretty sure that this is right. check it out on the web.

I bought a Remington 870 at Christmas time. The first time i shot it the shells are jamming in the gun. I took it home cleaned it and oiled it real good. Went and shot it again same problem. Either...


If the 870 is a Magnum model it should accept 3" shells. After making absolutely sure you have an unloaded shotgun, both chamber and magazine are empty, empty, empty, proceed with these few checks.

Assuming it may be a 2 3/4' model, have you double checked on the left side of the barrel near the receiver? There will be gauge and shell length stampings on the barrel. If you are jamming 3" shells in to a 2 3/4" shotgun you will get jams as you describe. Look at the empty shell casings if you have any and see if the shell appears to be damaged from the chambered and firing process. This could also indicate you have a improper shell length issue.
If you are shooting reloaded ammo make sure it has been properly re-sized, crimped and reloaded.
sloppy reloading of shotgun shells can cause jams as you describe. Improperly re-loaded shells can also cause leaks of bb's, (shot) in to the receiver and bore area.

Check for a loose bb. or bb's, (shot) in the receiver and chamber area. A lodged bb. in these areas will cause problems you have described.

Run your fingers along the barrel and visually check it for any slight bulge. If you detect or suspect a bulge do not shoot or load the shotgun until a gunsmith or the factory check the barrel thoroughly. If someone had loaded a 20, 16 or similar smaller guage shell in the chamber by accident and the gun was fired it will usually cause at minimum a stressed and bulged barrel. Many times a slight bulge in the barrel may not be visually obvious.

Most of the time if a 12 gauge shell gets loaded behind that one and fired you will have catastrophic failures, i.e. the gun can blow up and cause serious harm, blindness or even death in rare cases to the shooter. Shooters call this a "20/12" catastrophic failure. This type of accident is not to be taken lightly! this is why shotgun shells of different gauges are different in color normally.
Never ever, mix shotgun gauge shells in a pouch or box.

If you pump the shotgun too easily, (i.e. wimpy) it can jam up. Always pump, "rack" a shotgun with vigor. I'm not suggesting abusive action, just don't be slow or overly gentle with the pump action that ejects a shell and reloads the next one. Something related to this is if your action/slide bar is out of alignment or has become torqued out of it's proper alignment this will cause problems as you have mentioned. The action/slide bar is a long single piece of flat metal that is in alignment with the barrel and is attached to the front forearm of the shotgun. This is the flat piece of metal that actually makes the action open and close as you pump the shotgun. There is one on the left underside of the bore and forearm of the shotgun. When you pump the action you will easily observe it moving with your pumping action.

Check how the empty action feels to you. While dry-firing, (using an unloaded shotgun), does the action feel smooth or perhaps, gritty, sluggish, overly tight? If any of the later the you need to double check for debris, shot, excessive old lubrication, gumming of the action, a bent action/slide bar, etc. A normal 870 has a very smooth action.

Also, check the bore for any obvious nicks or obstructions that don't belong there. A good quality shotgun such as your 870 should operate best with very little lubrication. Excessive lubrication over time can cause gumming up of the receiver area. Also, improper lubrication products. Improper lubrication can cause problems you have described.

I am not a gun smith. I am simply an avid gun enthusiast. If you have any doubts as to anything that you observe while performing these basic checks on your shotgun, I strongly advise you to call the factory or take it to a local gun smith. Many gun shops will give your shotgun a courtesy check over and if you don't find a solution, many times they will within a few minutes. Do not be embarrassed to take the gun in to a gunsmith! Trust me, they will most likely treat you and you gun with respect and courtesy. Otherwise they won't be in business much longer.
If the gun shop fixes your problem make sure and purchase some shells and perhaps something else from them. We must support our small business firearms dealers and gun smiths

Hope this helps you!

Cocking a winchester m12


you need to push that slide release unless you have pulled the trigger. If you pulled the trigger it will then release the slide. This is there so you don't accidently ejeat an unfired shell

Slide arm does not go completely forward


My Friend,
It seems you really have outdone yourself! The only thing I can recommend is to go to your local gunsmith ( a gun store could help in the location of one hint, hint) and have them disassemble the old gal. they will assess the damages done by your rookie mistake, and hopefully it's not too bad eh (she's a beauty she is). next time I STRONGLY recommend you take every precaution necessary to not damage you the guns or others. I STRONGLY recommend cleanings after every use, and please be sure to slide the slide arm all the way forward next time. You are lucky you were not hurt.
In my opinion though you may have broken a crucial spring, lock the slide gate shut, and/or dislocated the base of the spring. the shell not fitting I would say is a barrel issue with unburnt black powder, or a small dent in the barrel form the slide mechanism. BUT I HIGHLY recommend you do not try to repair this in your home or take my diagnosis as I have not seen the gun, nor am I a professional gunsmith.

Best Wishes,
KidKRYLON

12 gauge shotgun shell converted to metric (ex. 12 gauge + 20mm)


A ordinary 2 3/4 inch 12 guage shell equates to a European 70 mm. a 3 inch Magnum is a 76 mm.
Goof Luck.
