** Winchester Model 1897 Takedown Shotgun

12 gauge, 20.5" barrel, S/N 646342 (ca 1919).  Blued finish with grooved forend and plain grip.  Brass bead front sight. Barrel marked with gauge, choke, and two-line Winchester address and patent dates. Serial number marked on bottom of receiver.  


Fair.  Most of the blued finish remains with some thinning to working parts. Stock shows some handling marks with some missing wood at toe along with missing section of buttplate. Action needs work, arm appears to be disconnected from carrier. Bore is good, mostly bright with some minor scratches. Some remnants of cosmoline packing.

Estimate: $100 - $300
