Model 70 Stainless Rifle

Today many shooters demand a low maintenance yet durable bolt action rifle. New for 1992 is the Winchester Model 70 Stainless rifle with a rugged synthetic stock. The combination of the low maintenance stainless steel barreled action with its gray mate finish and the weather resistant composite stock gives today's hunter a very durable bolt action rifle with famous Winchester Model 70 engineering and reliability.

The high-tech fiberglass and graphite impregnated composite stock with its contour rubber recoil pad offers the shooter optimum durability and performance.

A precise stainless steel barrel is mated to a machined stainless steel bolt. In addition the follower and many other smaller parts are also made of stainless steel. This is to insure that the rifle indeed has low maintenance.

This premiere mountain rifle with its synthetic stock allows the hunter to traverse the most rugged terrain in search of elusive game without having to worry about damaging the stock or moisture affecting the accuracy.

When hunting in these extreme conditions proper cleaning of a rifle is not always possible. The Model 70's Stainless barreled action affords the hunter the luxury of extending the periods between cleaning. As with all Winchester rifles, extra features which are engineered into each model benefit the hunter. For example, in a cold hunting environment a firing pin can freeze and cause a misfire at the most critical moment. Every Winchester Model 70 has a field strippable firing pin that at the push of a button can be simply removed for inspection to insure that no ice or debris has accumulated to ruin that special shot. This is basic insurance when one figures all the time, money, effort and planning that go into a hunt. Alaskan guides have many stories of the missed shots due to a frozen firing pin in non Winchester brand rifles which require tools to access the firing pin. When one considers this and all the other benefits that a Winchester Model 70 Stainless offers today's shooter, the choice to own a Winchester is readily apparent.

For 1992 the Model 70 Stainless is offered in the following standard calibers with twenty-two inch barrels: 270 Winchester, and 30-06 Spfld. The following magnum calibers have twenty-four inch barrels: 7 mm Rem. Mag., 30 Win. Mag. and 338 Win. Mag.

Model 70 Featherweight Rifles

Refined and perfected to a high state of rifle art. Today's Model 70 Featherweight is the best ever. A fitted walnut stock, hand assembled components, exceptional finishing and exacting rifling are accomplished by traditional hand-crafted care and attention to detail combined with modern computer technology. The handsome look of today's Model 70 reflects its high quality and skilled workmanship.

For styling and appearance, the Model 70 has no equal. The Winchester Model 70 Featherweight was selected as "the most beautiful looking rifle, U.S. or foreign," in an independent consumer survey by Guns Magazine. It is the overwhelmingly popular choice of hunters and sportsmen throughout the world.

All Model 70's feature the finest Winchester-Proof grade chrome molybdenum steel in their bolts, receivers and barrels which are heat treated for additional wear resistance. Molybdenum steel is stronger than plain steel alone. All parts made with this alloy have increased strength, durability, and endurance for more accurate follow up shots. Chrome molybdenum is regarded as the best steel to be used for guns. Of the three leading rifle brands only Winchesters have the parts machined from this extra quality steel.

All Winchester Model 70 Featherweights barrels are rifled by cold hammer-forging, sometimes called swaging, where giant rotary hammers strike the outside of the barrel causing it to wrap around a die or mandril placed in the bore. In actuality the rifling is hammered into the bore. This method is regarded by experts as the best way to achieve accuracy in a rifle barrel. Other gun companies cut their rifling into the walls of the barrel. Cutting or hook rifling is a less exacting method. Also, when rifling is cut into a barrel sharp trailing uneven edges along the rifling are left in the barrel. By hammer forging, as is done on the Model 70 Featherweight, no gouges or uneven edges are created in the barrel. In fact, the hammer forged rifling is glass smooth and tolerances are kept to an extreme minimum. A critical accuracy element that cut rifling can't even approach. After all, isn't the main reason for buying a rifle its accuracy?

In response to popular demand two additional Winchester Model 70 Featherweights have been added to the 1992 selection. The handsome and durable brown laminated WinTuff Model has returned and a totally new Featherweight Classic featuring a claw controlled round feeding action bedded into a standard grade walnut stock.

Engineered like no other gun in the world, today's Winchester Model 70 bolt action centerfire rifles are the best made Model 70's ever.

Model 70 Lightweight Rifles

The Winchester Model 70 bolt action centerfire rifle is superb in every respect. For more than half a century it has been called "The Rifleman's Rifle [TM]" because of its demonstrated performance, accuracy and dependability.

Every Model 70 is made with craftsmanship and care. The strength and security of Model 70 rifles come from advanced materials, engineering and design. The barrel and receiver with its integral recoil lug are made from the finest chrome molybdenum steel. The bolt body and locking lugs are also machined from the same extra durable steel. Rotary hammer forging of bore and rifling of the Model 70 Lightweight barrels results in glass-smooth lands and grooves for optimum accuracy. Thermoplastic bedding perfectly mates the receiver's recoil lug and the stock for maximum strength and accuracy.

A hand-polished stainless steel magazine follower is standard on all Lightweights and Featherweights. The one piece anti-bind bolt can be stripped in the field for cleaning of debris or removal of ice without the need of tools. The jeweled finish bolt has a knurled bolt handle. Every one of these fine rifles features the industry's premier 3-position safety. All Model 70 receivers are drilled and tapped for scope mounting.

In styling and appearance, Winchester Model 70 Lightweight Rifles are evidence of fine engineering combined with the care and workmanship of master craftsmen. Wood finishes are specially selected for beauty and endurance. Solid walnut and laminated stocks are hand-worked and finished with genuine-deep-cut checkering for that custom-like look and feel. Metal finishes are color and luster matched.

Each Winchester Model 70 is precision-manufactured and tested to deliver optimum performance with smooth reliable operation.

The Winchester Model 70 with its powerful performance and graceful lines has inspired many copies. Why else have other gun companies sought to copy the number "7" when naming their bolt action rifle? The Winchester Model 70 is the standard by which other pseudo "7" bolt action rifles are compared.

All Winchester Model 70 Lightweight rifles are made with pride in the U.S.A. by American craftsman.

Model 70 Super Grade Rifle

The Winchester Model 70 Super Grade is for that discriminating hunter who wants the ultimate in a bolt action rifle. This new Super Grade takes bolt action shooting into a new dimension.

Featuring a bolt with true claw controlled round feeding, combined with the extra high quality materials and accuracy for which Winchester Model 70 rifles are famous, the Winchester Model 70 Super Grade is truly "The Rifleman's Rifle."

A stainless steel claw extractor on the bolt grasps the round from the magazine and delivers it to the chamber and later extracts the spent cartridge. A newly engineered gas block doubles as bolt stop and the Model 70's famous anti-bind bolt guide assures a smooth action. Winchester's famous 3-position safety and field strippable firing pin are standard with each model 70 Super Grade.

In addition to claw controlled round feeding, the new Model 70 Super Grade has a handsome satin finish selected walnut stock with a graceful sculptured cheekpiece designed to direct the recoil forces rearward and away from the shooter's cheek. An extra thick honeycomb recoil pad, all steel bottom metal, and famous munitions grade Model 70 chrome molybdenum barrel with cold hammer-forged rifling for exacting accuracy add to this unique rifle's value.

The Model 70 Super Grade is offered in five calibers, 270 Winchester, 30-06 Spfld., 7mm Rem. Mag., 300 and 338 Winchester Mag. as a production gun.

Representing the culmination of decades of Model 70 production, this new Winchester Model 70 Super Grade, regarded as the finest Model 70 ever, incorporates all the best features of all the Model 70's which preceded it. Truly a rifle which will give years of unparalleled service and pride for generations. No other controlled round feeding rifle on the market today offers this quality of components and craftsmanship, accuracy and performance at such an affordable price.

In addition to the Winchester Model 70 Super Grade rifles, there are refined, hand-worked Custom Grade rifles available in the five standard calibers, plus custom only models in 375 H&H Mag., 416 Rem. Mag., 458 Winchester, 470 Capstick and new for 1992 the 375 JRS developed by John R. Sundra. Prices quoted on request.

Model 70 Sporter Rifles

Popular demand for a broader selection of Winchester Model 70 Sporters has spawned this new family of rifles. Fashioned in the new classic style lines of the 1992 Model 70 Sporters this new series is adorned with an attractive brown camo WinTuff stock. This new stock offers today's sophisticated hunter the traditional low recoil features for which Winchester Model 70's are famous with the added benefit and extra durability of a laminated Win Tuff stock with its superior resistance to the effects of moisture and strength. These and other accuracy getting benefits are an example of a serious commitment on the part of the design engineers who strive to enhance the already renown accuracy and durability for which today's Model 70's are noted. Innovations in manufacturing methods, new materials and designs are just some of the ways today's Winchester are Engineered Better than Ever.

Accuracy is additionally assured when the Model 70 famous barreled-action is hand bedded into this newly designed Sporter stock. Each Model 70 Sporter features a twenty-four inch, glass smooth, cold hammer-forged rifled chrome molybdenum barrel. A receiver with a massive front recoil lug is machined from a solid block of chrome molybdenum forged steel. A field strippable firing pin can be easily removed in seconds from the bolt simply by pushing a button and unscrewing the firing pin by hand.

All these exceptional features are only available on a Winchester Model 70. Neither of the other two top selling brands of bolt action rifles give today's shooter this superior quality and design.

The new Model 70 Sporters will initially be offered in six popular calibers; 270 Winchester, 30-06 Spfld., 7mm Rem. Mag., 300 Winchester Mag., 300 Weath. Mag. and 338 Winchester Mag.

Because stability and accuracy are important to today's shooter and can only be realized after the rifle is purchased and fired, it only makes sense to insure one's purchase by selecting the brand that puts the finest accuracy getting components into its guns.

The Winchester Model 70 has set the standard for many of today's bolt action rifles. After it was introduced other rifle companies wanted to get into this market and even copied the sound of the Model 70's name by putting one or two "7's" in their name. To date, none has ever equaled the quality of materials and level of engineering of the Winchester Model 70.

Model 70 Sporter & Super Express

Winchester Sporter and Super Express rifles are truly examples of advanced design and craftsmanship. Their proven performance and accuracy are the results of unsurpassed gun making knowledge and quality control. These superb rifles combine custom styling with latest Model 70 design advantages and technology.

The Model 70 Sporter Rifle comes in six standard calibers for deer and other game. The Sporter Magnum is available in seven powerful magnum calibers for larger North American game. The two Super Express magnum rifles are made for the world's biggest game.

Stocks are of handsome walnut with a hard, weather resistant protective satin finish and wrap-around deep - cut checkering in a custom style 18 line per inch pattern which is both handsome and functional. A sculpted cheekpiece aids shooter comfort and positioning. Protective deep blueing highlights all metal surfaces.

A renowned Model 70 barreled action, with its forged and machined receiver, and an anti-bind bolt grace the Sporter's strong walnut stock.

Model 70 Sporters are available with either screw removable sights or quality bases and rings.

The Model 70 Sporter Super Express is offered in 375 H&H Mag. with a 24" barrel and in 458 Winchester Magnum with a 22" barrel. All Super Express rifles have adjustable deluxe hunting sights.

This significant addition to the very popular Sporter line is a result of numerous requests from gun buyers. This detachable magazine allows the hunter to remove the rounds from the rifle and reload without delay.

Model 70 Heavy Barrel Varmint Rifles

Now offered in four popular calibers, this highly accurate Varmint rifle epitomizes the high standard of excellence in engineering, styling and craftsmanship for which Winchester Model 70's are renowned.

Weighing approximately 9 pounds, the Model 70 Varmint rifle features a Sporter-style stock with undercut cheekpiece and a 26" counter-bored heavy barrel which has hammer-forged rifling for those critical ultra-long range shots. Available in: 22-250 and 223 Rem., 243 and 308 Winchester. Winchester Model 70 Varmint rifles are especially suited for other small game in addition to varmints.

Like every Model 70, this Varmint rifle is made with precision and care to deliver the dependability and accuracy you demand. The heralded strength and accuracy of Model 70 rifles comes from their advanced materials, engineering and design. The extra heavy counter-bored barrel, the receiver with its massive integral recoil lug and Winchester's famous field-strippable bolt with its removable firing pin are each made from chrome molybdenum steel for superior strength and accuracy.

The one piece anti-bind bolt can be stripped in the field without tools for easy cleaning. The bolt features a jeweled finish and knurled bolt handle. The famous smooth, crisp Model 70 trigger with easy let-off is teamed with the industry's premier 3-position safety to comprise a most effective system. The receiver is drilled and tapped for scope mounting.

An extra thick hammer-forged 26" barrel reduces vibration and increases stability so that long range shots can be taken with confidence and regularity. Also, the end of the barrel is counter-bored to insure that the muzzle is exactly square to the bore. These accuracy-getting features take the Model 70 Varmint rifle's accuracy range out to extreme varmint-getting distances.

In style and appearance, Model 70 Varmint rifle shows the care and workmanship of master craftsmen. Wood finishes are specially selected from beauty and endurance. The walnut stock is hand-worked and finished with genuine cut checkering for a custom look and feel.

The Winchester Model 70 Ranger centerfire rifle gives price conscious sportsmen the performance and accuracy found only in high priced bolt actions.

The Model 70 chrome molybdenum steel barrel with its famous ultra-high accuracy achieved through cold hammer forged rifling is heat-treated for high strength. A screw removable beaded blade front sight positioned on a hooded ramp and an adjustable rear sight are standard.

The anti-bind bolt design and the 3-position safety are identical to the actions on the higher valued Winchester bolt rifles and offer the same smooth dependable operation in all hunting situations. The chrome molybdenum forged steel receiver is drilled and tapped for scope.

The Ranger Ladies/Youth rifle offers dependable Winchester bolt action performance and quality. It is scaled down to fit younger smaller hunters. It's ideal for young men or ladies.

Unlike other brands the stock is not merely cut down. It features a slimmer pistol grip positioned closer to the trigger, shorter length of pull, shorter overall length as well as a lower comb. Ideal for training or as a first deer rifle, this Winchester Model 70 Ranger Ladies/Youth rifle makes handling easy and shooting enjoyable.

Model 94 Lever Action Rifles

Winchester Model 94's are a legend in their own time. Over 4 million Model 94's have been sold in the last 25 years, and over 7 million since Winchester introduced the first one back in 1894.

The tolerance of the moving parts have been tightened, a link pin and set screw have been installed on the lever to make today's Model 94 action quiet and smooth. A hooded ramp front sight on all 20" barrel Walnut and Win Tuff models teams with a fully adjustable rear sight to help make today's Model 94 most enjoyable to shoot.

The Model 94 has an array of deer-getting features. A receiver machined from a hot forging of ordnance-grade steel that's so strong it's the only lever action rifle chambered for both the powerful 307 and 356 cartridges. All Winchester Model 94's achieve their extra strong lockup by means of a high wall falling breech block system. This extra strong locking system is the reason why the Winchester Model 94's can handle these powerful rounds which have a muzzle velocity of 2680 and 2400 feet per second respectively. Lever action rifles without this falling breech are not as strong.

The open-top receiver design features a positive side-ejection system which allows low scope top mounting. This design also makes it easy to load single rounds directly right into the chamber as well as verify that there is a round in the chamber. Smoother, quieter lever actions help make these legendary rifles a pleasure to own.

The Model 94's multi-shot capacity acts like an insurance policy against tough-to-shoot quarry like wild hogs in thick brush, while its short barrel is greatly appreciated when moving through the heavy brush.

All Winchester 94's are supplied with a hammer spur extension for use with scope. This extension is reversible for right or left handed shooters.

For styling, strength and performance the 1992 Model 94 is without equal. Truly "Engineered Better Than Ever."

Made with pride in the U. S. A. by American craftsman.

Model 94 Lever Action Rifles

Unlike other lever actions which have shallow-groove rifling, the Model 94 features long-lasting, deep-grooved rifling in its extra strong chrome molybdenum steel barrel. A feature which defines accuracy and found only in the world's better quality rifles.

Today's Model 94 features short, fast throw. So it's not only easier on the back of the shooter's hand than guns with a longer throw, it also gets off a much faster follow up shot.

Superior handling characteristics of the Model 94 are also immediately apparent. The balance point is strategically placed just forward of the finger lever in the gun's normal carrying position. The contour of the receiver and grip comfortably fits the shooters hand for effortless carrying. The rifle's size, overall lightness and balance promote quick pointing and sure handling. All Model 94's have drilled and tapped receivers for positive side ejection of spent cartridges.

The Winchester Model 94 is responsible for more kettles of venison stew, more stacks of venison steaks and more heaping platters of venison chops than any deer gun ever made.

When shooting the American hardwood Model 94 Ranger with its optional scope or the extra durable brown laminated Model 94 Win Tuff with its fully adjustable sights, the shooter can take advantage of the culmination of years of Model 94 refinement and experience the sensation of shooting a rifle steeped in American shooting tradition.

The art of manufacturing the Winchester Model 94 has been perfected over many years of production. From the days when it was the "Gun that Won the West" until today, the new quieter action 1992 Winchester Lever Action Model 94 is the standard by which all other lever action rifles are judged.

Engineered for today's hunter, the 1992 Winchester Model 94 is a prime example of American quality, craftsmanship and performance.

All Winchester Model 94's are proudly made in the U.S. by skilled American gun makers.

Model 94 Trapper Lever Action Rifles

The response from today's shooter to the recent changes made to the Winchester Model 94 has been so strong that three new Trapper models have been introduced for 1992. After much demand, the companion pistol caliber 357 Magnum will be available early in the year.

Gone for too many years is the large loop lever. Originally designed to accommodate the thickness of gloves worn during the cold hunting days and popularized in the TV series "The Rifleman," this oversized lever has taken on its own mystique. Also for 1992, the Winchester Model 94 Trapper with its sixteen inch barrel is offered in 44 Rem. Mag. and the ever popular 30-30 Winchester with either the standard or large loop lever.

The Model 94 Trapper was originally fashioned for fur trappers who would put in their deep backpacks. Because of its short sixteen inch barrel, nearly the entire gun could fit in the backpack. This had a two point advantage. In addition to freeing the trappers hands so he could work his trap line, its short length meant that it would not catch on low tree branches as he traversed along his tree-dense routes.

Versatility and dependability are the hallmarks of the Winchester Model 94. This very fact is evidenced in millions of these rifles that have been manufactured here on Winchester Avenue in New Haven, Ct. over the past ninety-eight years. The Winchester Model 94 is responsible for harvesting more wild game than any other rifle in history.

Still going strong today and with modern adaptations such as a receiver which is drilled and tapped for scope mounting and the side ejection of spent shells, this gun is basically the same as it was when introduced in 1894 with the additional engineering alterations made to it by John Browning. The Model 94 is a marvel of good basic engineering utilized in a sensible manner. Its popularity over nearly one hundred years is not only testimony to this fact, but a fitting tribute.

Model 9422 Lever Action Rimfire Rifle

The Winchester Model 9422 is the premier lever action rimfire rifle. For gunmaking craftsmanship, performance and classic styling, there is no finer .22. Patterned after the famous Model 94, these rimfire rifles are manufactured with the same precision and hand-crafted care. Their excellence is apparent in fit, finish, appearance and handling and accuracy is superior in every way.

The Model 9422 is offered in regular and magnum versions. These are ideal varmint rifles with superior accuracy even at longer ranges.

New versions feature extra tough Win Tuff [TM] and WimCam [TM] laminated stocks. Both rifles feature positive lever action and a bolt designed for feeding and chambering from any shooting position. A T-slotted bolt face assures positive controlled round feeding of all .22 caliber cartridge types. The rustproof brass magazine tube has a colored magazine follower that shows when the tube is empty.

For high strength, the receiver, frame and finger lever are machined from forged steel and high stress areas are hardened. Internal components are carefully finished for smooth operation and appearance. Receivers are designed for side ejection of spent cartridges and have a groove in the top of the receiver for easy scope mounting. Each rifle is furnished with hammer spur extension reversible for left or right handed shooting convenience when a scope is mounted. Additional features include the exposed hammer with half-cock safety, hooded ramped bead front sight and a fully adjustable rear sight.

Model 9422 rifles are made better by advanced design, advanced production techniques and the meticulous care of the craftsmen who make Winchester guns.

Whether target shooting, plinking or varmint hunting, the Winchester Model 9422 with its technically sophisticated controlled round feeding action, and its superb fit and finish of wood and metal parts, ranks this high quality rifle as the best .22 caliber rimfire rifle on the market today.

The Model 9422 is available in Walnut or Win Tuff - brown laminate and WinCam - camo green laminate for extra durability and concealment.

Regarded as the world's premier lever action .22, this technologically advanced rifle has given many shooters years of fun and enjoyment.

Made in the U.S.A. by American Craftsman.

Model 1400 Semi-Auto Shotguns

Winchester semi-auto shotguns come in a variety of configurations ranging from upland game models to deer slug guns with rifled Sabot choke tubes and drilled and tapped receivers. Fast-firing dependability is the perfected product of over thirty years of development and manufacturing experience. These Winchester semi-auto shotguns offer the styling, advanced features, and versatility you expect to find in more expensive guns.

The self-compensating gas operated action is fast, smooth and reliable. It can deliver fast follow-up shots as quickly as the trigger can be pulled. The gas action piston absorbs shock and reduces recoil which allows the shooter to stay on target for more accurate follow-up shots. The shock absorbing piston is one of the reasons why these Winchester autos are renowned for smooth shooting. This combined with a superior lightning fast lockup assures secure high strength breech locking while permitting reduced receiver weight for better balance and also aids in the reduction of recoil forces.

The front-locking rotary bolt is machined from solid chrome molybedenum steel and locks directly into a chrome molybdenum steel barrel extension by means of four big locking lugs which gives ultra-strong security.

The barrel is made from Winchester Proof Steel. The receiver is machined from a high strength, corrosion-resistant space age alloy. The positive cross-bolt safety is located conveniently at the front of the trigger guard. Single pin trigger assembly take down for easy cleaning and inspection.

Every durably Winchester Model 1400 Shotgun is chambered for 2-3/4" standard and 2-3/4" magnum shells interchangeably. All Model 1400's shoot ultra light loads with ease. Each has convenient bolt closing release.

All Winchester shotguns have barrels with roller burnished inner walls which aid in the resistance of damage from steel shot. In addition, WinChoke tubes are guaranteed against damage from steel shot.

Winchester guns are made in the U.S.A.

Model 1400 Semi-Auto Shotguns

The Model 1400 Walnut "Slug Hunter" is factory drilled and tapped for secure scope mounting. Bases and rings included. Threaded steel inserts in the top of the receiver, a position most favored by shooters, assures a solid steel-to-steel scope mount. A rifled Sabot tube which delivers surprising accuracy and a conventional Improved Cylinder WinChoke tube are standard.

Computer aided engineering and design has enabled the new Winchester Model 1400 Walnut "Slug Hunter" Shotgun, when fitted with the highly accurate rifled Sabot tube, to rival the accuracy of many rifles. Surprising accuracy can be achieved with the combination of the revolutionary new rifled Sabot tube and Sabot slugs. In the event of need for total smooth-bore shooting, an Improved Cylinder WinChoke tube is included.

When a fast second shot is critical as in today's fast growing sport "Sporting Clays" it is desirable to have a semi-auto shotgun with rotary bolt lock up as on Model 1400. This advanced system is more efficient and faster than the older style top locking mechanisms, thus giving the shooter a definite advantage.

Affordable semi-auto shotgun shooting is made possible with the Winchester Model 1400 Ranger Combo. The same modern technology and mechanisms refined in today's Model 1400 Walnut models are use in the Model 1400 Ranger.

Included with each Model 1400 Ranger Combo are two barrels. For slug shooting there's a 22 inch smooth-bore barrel with adjustable rifle-type sights and for traditional shotgun shooting, a 28 inch vent rib barrel with three WinChoke tubes Full Modified and Improved Cylinder is included.

Both the Model 1400 "Slug Hunter" and the Model 1400 Ranger Combo have receivers which are drilled and tapped for scope mounting. Bases and rings are included with each drilled and tapped Model 1400 Semi-Auto Shotguns.

A newly engineered screw anchored ejector is installed in every Winchester shotgun for many rounds of trouble free shooting.

Model 1300 Pump Deer Slug Guns

Designed into each Winchester Model 1300 and 1400 slug gun is a barrel receiver inter-lock to insure that each time you insert the barrel into the receiver it will always return to the same position. Other major brands of shotguns lack this very important feature.

The new Winchester Model 1300 Walnut Slug Hunter's carrying weight is nearly 3/4 pound less than our major competitors' gun and is available with a fully rifled barrel or a smooth-bore barrel with an Improved Cylinder choke tube plus the revolutionary rifled Sabot tube for surprising accuracy.

The lockup is Winchester's famous chrome molybdenum high speed four lug rotary bolt and barrel extension system which is so efficient that all of the lockup forces are contained between the bolt and barrel extension. This high-tech system is so strong that the lockup does not need to use the receiver top as part of the locking system. Consequently, unlike older less efficient shotgun lockups that need to put pressure against the roof of the receiver, the Model 1300's receiver is made out of a lightweight corrosion resistant space age alloy for better balance, swinging and carrying ease.

Because the rotary lockup is concentric with the bore of the barrel, recoil forces are used to unlock the bolt and drive the bolt and forearm rearward to assist the shooter in setting up the next shot. Also, because all forces are in the same line, none from the top of the receiver, the Winchester Model 1300 pump action shotgun opens faster and with less vibration than do slower old style top locking shotguns, in effect anticipating the shooter's next shot.

We are honored that the national organization "Whitetails Unlimited" has selected to endorse the Winchester Model 1300 Walnut Slug Hunter deer shotgun as their "Gun of the Year."

With each Whitetails Unlimited gun sold, a donation will be made to this fine organization which is dedicated to the management and preservation of deer hunting.

All Winchester Model 1300 Slug Hunters are Performance Crafted in the U.S.A. by American craftsman.

Model 1300 Pump Deer Slug Guns

Today's deer hunter deserve a real shotgun shooting system that gives the accuracy and performance of a modern day hunting rifle.

Only our new Winchester Slug Hunter shotguns offer the exclusive ability to securely mount a regular rifle eye relief scope on top of the shotgun receiver.

All Slug Hunters have factory drilled and tapped receivers to secure scope mounting, four steel bushings are permanently installed into the extra thick receiver top. Factory supplied bases and rings are easily screwed into the steel bushing for strong steel-to-steel anchoring. Quality bases and rings are included with each Slug Hunter.

The shooter of a Winchester Slug Hunter does not have to settle for an awkward flimsy mounting bracket protruding back from the barrel. In fact, all Winchester Slug Hunters give you the added benefit of adjustable rifle sights. Sights are not possible on slug guns which have cantilever mounting brackets.

A new shooting experience can be realized when the industry's premier pump shotgun, the Winchester Model 1300, is outfitted with a slug barrel for single projectile shooting. Three variations are available for all shooting needs. The Model 1300 Walnut Slug Hunter pump action shotgun features a rifled barrel with 8 lands and grooves, rifle type sights, and a receiver which is factory drilled and tapped for scope. Also available, is a Model 1300 Win Tuff Slug Hunter. This versatile shotgun features a Winchester Proof Steel rifled barrel with rifle type sights. To complete the new pump action slug gun trio is a Model 1300 Walnut Slug Hunter with a smooth-bore barrel with a interchangeable extra long rifled Sabot choke tube for unsurpassed slug shooting accuracy. Also included is an Improved Cylinder WinChoke tube for traditional slug or buckshot shooting.

The Walnut models feature a sculptured cut checkered beavertail forearm while the warm brown laminated Win Tuff models have the traditional ribbed corn cob style forearm for comfort and speed. All models have honeycomb recoil pad and a crossbolt safety.

Model 1300 Turkey Shotguns

The Winchester Model 1300 National Wild Turkey Federation turkey shotgun rapidly became the number one turkey gun on the market today It is a tribute to the successful restoration of the wild turkey and to the immense interest in hunting America's noblest big game bird. This WinCam shotgun is dedicated to the NWTF. A generous contribution is made to the worthwhile organization for each gun sold. This special Turkey Gun is a 12 gauge Model 1300 pump with a 22" floating ventilated rib barrel with WinChoke system -- Extra Full, Full and Modified chokes are standard.

A fast action rotary bolt steel-to-steel lockup affords the shooter follow-up shots as fast as needed.

The receiver is roll-engraved on both sides with decorative turkey scenes by Rob Keck of the NWTF. The right side of the receiver also bears the name of the Federation in script.

The camouflaged-style stock and rattle free forearm are of green WinCam laminated for high strength, durability, and concealment. Features include a cut checkered pistol grip stock, classic ribbed forearm, non-glare matte finish on metal, honeycomb recoil pad, and metal bead front sight.

Each of these special guns comes equipped with a quick-detachable traction grip lined camouflage Cordura sling. Both regular and special Model 1300 WinCam Turkey shotguns stand any test for all-around performance. They are designed to withstand the elements and hard use which are part of the fast growing sport of wild turkey hunting.

The WinCam stock is made from a unique extra durable camouflage-style green laminate which is cut checkered. This gun has a traditional ribbed forearm, rubber recoil pad, sling and quick-release sling swivels. All metal parts are dull name-finished. Black bolt.

New for 1992 is a National Wild Turkey Federation 20 gauge Ladies/Youth model with a shorter slimmer WinCam stock of extra durable laminated American hard wood featuring a repositioned pistol grip and forearm. Scaled down only in fit, this new Turkey Gun is every bit as efficient as its 12 gauge big brother. Both the full size and the Ladies/Youth Model 1300 Turkey shotguns have a solid feel of quality, craftsmanship and performance.

The Winchester Model 1300 Turkey shotgun is offered in three popular versions.

Model 1300 Pump Walnut Shotguns

Solid reliability, smooth fast action, lightweight balance and quick pointing make the Winchester Model 1300 Walnut the preferred pump shotgun. Whether hunting rabbits or pheasants with the 12 gauge or dove or quail with the 20 gauge, the Model 1300 Walnut always proves its versatility.

Our exclusive high-speed rotary-bolt lockup, the strongest, most secure lockup in a shotgun, is so strong that we can shave a half-pound of unnecessary weight from our machined space age alloy receiver. Dramatically increasing "huntability" through better balance, faster pointing and easier carrying.

The Model 1300, further increases "huntability" through faster followup shots. It's up to twice as efficient as other lockups. Which means that a new round is cycled into the chamber as fast as the pump can be operated.

Since the rotary bolt's four lug design completely eliminates the vibration caused by old fashioned, clunky, top-locking mechanisms, both these new Winchester guns are incredibly smooth shooters.

The trigger blocking cross bolt safety is conveniently located at the front of the trigger guard. Single-pin take-down provides easy field maintenance and cleaning.

The floating ventilated rib assures consistent center-of-impact as the barrel heats up. The special ventilated rubber recoil pad on all 12 gauge models provides maximum recoil absorption.

Available in 12 or 20 gauge in either 26" or 28" barrel lengths for all shotgun needs. Each barrel is equipped with the famous interchangeable WinChokes tubes. These tubes extend 1/4" past the muzzle so that the choke tube can be easily identified. In addition, this 1/4" extension is knurled for easy removal if the wrench is lost. Also, this 1/4" extension protects the muzzle from getting crimped or somehow damaged in the event that the muzzle accidentally strikes a rock or other object.

New WinChokes tubes are guaranteed for life against damage from factory loaded steel shot.

All Winchester Model 1300 Walnut shotguns feature diamond point cut checkering.

Model 1300 Ranger Shotguns

For the shooter who wants the dependability and proven performance of a pump action shotgun at an affordable price, the Winchester Model 1300 Ranger is such a shotgun. Winchester Ranger shotguns are made to the same high standards as the higher priced walnut models. The very same internal components which give Winchester shotguns their strength, speed and efficiency are used in the Ranger shotguns. All Ranger shotguns have Winchester's famous high speed chrome molybdenum steel military style rotary bolt and barrel extension lockup, floating vent rib and WinChokes.

A single pin take down trigger assembly is standard on all Winchester Model 1300 Pump and 1400 Auto shotguns. This convenience makes for easy inspection, cleaning and lubrication. The triggers have a cross-bolt safety conveniently located at finger-point reach in front of the trigger guard. Dual action bars provide smooth, anti-bind operation of the forearm which has been repositioned one and a half inch closer to the shooter for easier reach.

Also, the Ladies/Youth Walnut and Ranger models not only have shorter stocks, all the contours of stocks are slimmer and scaled down. The pistol grip is closer to the trigger to better fit a smaller hand of a young male or female shooter. In addition, the forearm is positioned closer to the receiver for easy reach and confidence. This helps the smaller shooter to cycle follow-up shots more efficiently.

A full length segmented plug is installed in every Ladies/Youth shotgun as it leaves the factory. The magazine tube is fully plugged. This limits the shotgun to a single shot. Later as the shooter gets accustomed to shooting the gun, the first segment (the length of one shell) can be broken-off, thus giving the magazine the capacity for one shell. Later, a second segment can be removed to allow for two shells in the magazine. At this point, this five shot gun is plugged for three shots.

A 50% discount certificate towards the future purchase price of a full size adult stock is packaged with every Winchester Ladies/Youth shotgun, giving this shotgun ageless versatility.

All Winchester shotguns have barrels with roller burnished inner walls which aid in the resistance of damage from steel shot. WinChoke tubes are fully guaranteed against damage from steel shot.

Model 1300 Combos

If affordable versatility in a shotgun is the order, these Winchester Model 1300's fill the bill. Whether bird hunting with the 28 inch floating vent rib barrel or for home security with the 18 inch cylinder bore barrel there is no better value in quality of materials, engineering and dependability than one of these fine shotguns. The Model 1300 Combo models have two interchangeable barrels. One is a 28 inch vent rib hunting barrel with interchangeable WinChokes and the other is a cylinder bore 18 inch plain Defender barrel.

The Model 1300 Ranger Deer Combo is offered with a 22 inch Winchester Proof steel barrel which is equipped with adjustable rifle type sights. This cylinder bore barrel has proved to be an effective accurate deer getting system when used with Foster-type slugs. In addition, a 28 inch barrel with a floating ventilated rib and tapped at the muzzle to accommodate the WinChoke system. Full, Modified and Improved Cylinder choke tubes are included with the 12 or 20 gauge hunting barrels.

Every Winchester Model 1300 comes with a high speed rotary bolt lockup, in fact the Model 1300's are the only production pump shotguns with this fast cycling action. Twin action bars are designed to prevent binding during firing. In fact, rotary bolt actions are so fast that they are used on military machine guns. A top locking system would not be fast enough. A newly designed screw anchored ejector promotes trouble-free shooting.

As with all 1992 Winchester Model 1300 and 1400 Shotguns designed for deer or turkey, each receiver is factory drilled and tapped for secure steel-to-steel mounting of a scope.

The Model 1300 Defender Combo is equipped with a hardwood stock and forearm.

Also included with this Defender Combo is a black synthetic pistol grip which is interchangeable with the buttstock.

Each Winchester Model 1300 Ranger and Defender which comes with a hardwood buttstock has a thick ventilated recoil and tractionable forearm for comfort and ease of shooting.

This combo is equipped with a 12 gauge 18 inch cylinder bore barrel and an interchangeable 12 gauge 28 inch vent rib barrel tapped for WinChoke. A modified choke and wrench are included.

Made in the U.S.A. by American craftsman.

Model 1300 Pump Defender Shotguns

Winchester Defender Model 1300 pump security shotguns feature a broad range of options, from law enforcement purposes to the need of personal protection at home. Winchester produces a specific pump shotgun to meet the ever changing needs of police agencies and the American public.

For 1992 a reliable 5 shot pump Model 1300 is offered in the traditional American hardwood stock or with a new black military spec polymer stock. This new synthetic material is totally impervious to deterioration in all climatic conditions.

Each is equipped with a black rubber recoil pad and tractionable forearm for ease of shooting and sure gripping and pumping.

Every Model 1300 pump shotgun is chambered for 3" shotshells. They are designed to handle 3" magnum, 2-3/4" magnum, and 2-3/4" standard load shotshells or slugs interchangeably.

The reliable recoil assisted pump action with its highly efficient rotary bolt permits ultra fast follow-up shots, and the twin action bars prevent binding during rapid fire. One-pin trigger group disassembly makes cleaning and inspection fast and easy. A cross-bolt safety is conveniently located in front of the trigger.

The industry's strongest most efficient lockup, Armor-Lock [TM] is used on all Winchester shotguns. A military style chrome molybdenum steel rotary locks four massive lugs into a mating chrome molybdenum barrel extension to form this ultra strong lockup, the strongest available on any pump shotgun today. In addition, because the lockup is always concentric with the bore, no unlocking from the top of the receiver is necessary. The result is faster follow-up shots and a better balanced shotgun. In fact the Winchester Model 1300 pump shotguns is the only pump shotgun on the market with the fast action rotary bolt lockup system.

Military guns which are engineered to shoot rapidly employ a rotary bolt lockup in their design because of its speed in the cycling of successive shots. In addition, this most efficient system accomplishes this feat with fewer moving parts than do cumbersome tilting bolt top locking shotguns.

When speed and efficiency are a consideration, the fastest cycling mechanism is a rotary bolt lockup. It's so efficient, in fact, that after firing the forearm thrusts rearward in anticipation of the next shot.

Model 1300 Pump Defender Shotguns

The Winchester Model 1300 Black Matte 8 shot pump shotgun. The black stock made from an extra durable military spec polymer is designed to give the shooter years of carefree service. This material is engineered to withstand impact and is impervious to the effects of foul weather. A thick black rubber recoil pad and traction-grooved forend make these Defender models easy to shoot. Dual action bars insure smooth reliable pumping between shots. All metal surfaces feature a low glare matte finish. All bolts are also coated in a non-reflective matte finish. Also offered is an 8 shot Defender in traditional wood stock and blued finish. The compact pistol grip model is available in matte finish only.

A convenient single-pin trigger assembly take-down is standard. This makes inspection, cleaning and lubrication of the trigger fast and easy.

Both versions feature the Model 1300's dependable high speed chrome molybdenum rotary bolt system for fast follow-up shots. So fast that it actually begins setting up for the next shot from the recoil of the previous shot.

New Sharpshooter Rifles

For 1992, available only to the military and law enforcement, is a limited number of Sharpshooter rifles.

Chosen for its renounced accuracy, a machined Model 70 action and a heavy bull barrel have been teamed to deliver accuracy out to 1000 yards. Presently available in 300 and 308 Winchester, a McMillan A-2 fiberglass target rifle contour stock is mated to the barreled action to make this a most accurate ultra long range rifle.

Also available for Law Enforcement in 1992 is a Model 70 matte finished heavy barrel rifle in 308 Winchester with a synthetic stock This rifle offers pin point accuracy at ultra-long distance, cold hammer-forged rifling insures optimum accuracy at long distances.

Model 1300 Stainless Marine

Technical advancements necessitated by ever increasing worldwide military requirements have been put into the new pump action Winchester Model 1300 Stainless Marine shotgun.

A corrosion resistant space age alloy receiver is treated with Sandstrom 9A [R] phosphate coating for the ultimate in corrosion resistance. This coating was widely used on military guns which had to perform in the dampest of climatic conditions in Southeast Asia. In addition to the receiver, forty one of the internal working parts are also coated with this protective substance. This coating not only resists the effects of moisture, the internal components coated with this substance benefit from its lubricating properties which are suspended in a epoxy resin/teflon system that provides not only lubrication but extends the life of the coated parts.

The eighteen inch ordnance stainless steel barrel is triple platted for additional corrosion resistance. A plating of copper is first applied to the barrel, magazine tube, and action bars. Copper, with its corrosion resistance properties, bonds very well to steel and also to the second coating nickel. which is applied on top of the copper. The nickel provides the majority of the corrosion resistance. Finally a chrome plating is applied to give this, the most corrosion resistant marine shotgun, its unique appearance.

Winchester's famous high speed extra strong chrome molybdenum steel rotary bolt is designed to operate at optimum efficiency for extra fast follow-up shots in this seven shot dependable pump action stainless steel barrel Defender.

The trigger features a forward positioned cross bolt safety. A single pin trigger assembly take-down makes inspection, cleaning and lubrication fast and easy.

The ribbed forend and traction grip stock are made from an extra durable military spec synthetic polymer. In addition to being totally impervious to deterioration in any weather or environment, the model stock has a rubber butt pad. Chrome swivel studs are standard.

Compact for easy handling and stowage, this new advanced design Winchester Model 1300 Stainless Marine Shotgun is the premier all climate shotgun available today. This is another example of why Winchester guns are Engineered Better Than Ever.
