We do!
Actually the one we have was my Dad's so we're kind of acttached to it. Don't know what Model it is, but its a plain barreled modified choke, checkered wood. He use it for years as a bird gun and deer hunting in upstate NY. No rifles where we lived.

Bob,
My first shotgun was a double barrel 20 gauge. Santa brought it to me. I was 12.

I traded that gun in for a Winchester Model 50 a few years later. I still have it. I bet it's has ~1000 rounds thru it. It's seen bad weather. It's been dropped in the mud. It has patina. I don't remember it ever misfiring or jamming.

Bob,
I know this is a shotgun thread.

I guess that it was about the time that I bought my Winchester Model 94 lever rifles as a primary hunting (deer in GA) weapon and then when I got interested in the old design.

I know the modern stuff is better. I still prefer the older design.




Sorry, but to me the Winchester Model of 1894 is good. And like the Winchester 50; this category is currently priced well below the replacement market.

I am proud to have two 94's and a 50.
