This Winchester was produced in 1957. This shotgun’s serial number is 263575. This is one of around 10 that were produced with the 19 inch barrel. These shotguns were shipped to Abercrombie And Fitch in New York. It is not known if Winchester or Abercrombie And Fitch were the ones’ to shorten these barrels. These are very rare shotguns! This shotgun shows some very light handling in spots but no shooting. The wood is in new condition. The original bluing is in 99% or better condition. The barrel is crowned and 3 inches of counter boring is intact. The original box is serial numbered to this gun. The box is in very good condition. The end label is intact.

For those folks that do not know me yet, I’m very hard of hearing on the phone. Therefore when you would call me, I will pick up the phone and tell you that I will call you right back. I have caller ID just so that you know, the reason for that is I cannot use a regular phone. I have to switch over to what is called a voice carry over phone. When I call you back you will hear my voice in our conversation, an operator will type your conversation to me on my phone view screen. With me reading what you are saying to me saves me a lot of confusion for me mishearing words.
I do want to talk to you and answer your questions without mistakes or miscommunications. This system works pretty good, so please be willing to be patient with my hearing loss.
My wife Marcia has fine hearing on the phone and is quite knowledgeable about firearms and is very able to help you over the phone.
