The Winchester Model 70 has set the standard for many of the bolt action rifles. After it was introduced other rifle companies wanted to get into the same market.

To date none has ever equaled the quality of materials and level of engineering of the Winchester Model 70.

Each Model 70 Sporter is available with either screw removable sights or quality bases and rings.

Available in: 22-250 and 223 Rem., 243 and 308 Winchester. No sights.

Like every Model 70, this Varmint rifle is made with precision and care to deliver the dependability and accuracy you demand.

The extra heavy counter-bored barrel, 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.

An extra thick hammer-forged 26" barrel reduces vibration and increases stability so that long range shots can be taken with confidence and regularity.

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 handcrafted 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 Model 70 Featherweight was recently selected as "The most beautiful looking rifle, U.S. or foreign", in an independent consumer survey by Guns Magazine. It is the overwhelming 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 disperse heat faster 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 Feather-weights have barrels which 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 get accurate rifling in a 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 and Model 94, no gouges or uneven edges are created in the barrel. In fact, the hammer forged rifling is glass smooth and tolerances are kept to a 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 1991 the selection of Model 70 Featherweights has expanded to include the much requested 6.5 x 55mm Swedish and the highly accurate flat shooting 7mm Rem. Mag. and 300 Win. Mag. with a 24" barrel.

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.

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 Model 94 features an array of deer-getting features: A hot-forged receiver machined from a solid block of ordnance-grade steel that's so strong it's the only lever action rifle chambered for both the powerful 307 and 356 cartridges. Every major action component is machined from top grade ordnance steel.

Winchester 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 twenty 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 molybdenum 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 durable Winchester Model 1400 Shotgun is chambered for 2-3/4" standard and 2-3/4" magnum shells interchangeably. Each has convenient bolt closing release.

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 zero." Other major brands of shotguns lack this important feature. The new Winchester Model 1300 Walnut Slug Hunter's carrying weight is nearly 3/4 pound less than our major competitor's gun and is available with a fully rifled barrel or a smooth-bore barrel with an IC choke tube plus the revolutionary rifled Sabot tube for surprising accuracy.

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.

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 lock-ups that need to put pressure against the roof of the receiver, the Model I 300'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 forend rearward to assist the shooter in setting up the next shot. Also, since 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 old style top locking slower shotguns, in effect anticipating the shooter's next shot. All Winchester Model 1300 Slug Hunters are Made in the U.S.A. by American craftsman.

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.

It's also 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 on our Model 1300, further increasing huntability' through faster followup shots.

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 Winchoke tubes.

Also, this 1/4" extension protects the muzzle of the barrel from getting crimped or some how damaged in the event that the muzzle accidentally strikes a rock or other object.

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

They are available from your local dealer in 1 2 ga. Extra Full, Full, Modified, Improved Modified, Improved Cylinder and Skeet: 20 gauge Full, Modified, Improved Cylinder, and Sheet. screwing in another, the shooter has quickly adapted to different hunting or sporting clay situations.

For that special breed of hunter who swears by the performance of a pump action, here's the smoothest shooting, fastest pumping shotgun in the field. Whether you're hunting upland over dogs, or camouflaged in a marsh for honkers, the Winchester Model 1300 responds with a wide range of features, gauges, barrel lengths and chokes. It's the quality components, features and workmanship that set the Winchester Model 1300 pump shotguns apart from the many slower old fashioned non rotary bolt shotguns still on the market today.

Upon firing, the unlocking of the action is instantaneous for smoother, faster pumping of follow up shots. It actually uses the forces generated by the recoil to start sending the pump action rearward. In effect it anticipates the shooter's next shot.

A military style high strength chrome molybdenum steel rotary bolt and barrel extension lock together in a straight line creating the strongest and most efficient lockup available. Because all the forces are concentric with the bore of the barrel, much of the energy is utilized to drive the action rearward thus absorbing some of the recoil. The Winchester Model 1300 shotgun stays on target better than shotguns with top locking vibration generating lockup mechanisms. This is a very important when a fast follow up shot is needed.

No pressure is ever exerted against the walls or roof of the receiver as is needed on less efficient top locking shotguns. This allows for a receiver to be made of a lightweight space age alloy, thus reducing the weight of the gun by half a pound. This reduced weight improves the balance, handling and swing of the shotgun. in addition, the rotary action is more immediate than any shotgun on the market.

Winchester Proof Steel shotgun barrels with floating vent ribs are made of precision machined ordnance steel. The smooth-bore barrels have roller-burnished inner walls for a high strength surface which is resistant to abrasion. It is this treatment of the high grade steel bore walls that makes these barrels suitable for steel shot. In addition, all Winchoke tubes made since 1982 are covered by an exclusive lifetime warranty against damage from factory loaded steel shot.

The floating ventilated rib design on Winchester shotgun barrels helps maintain constant point-of-impact. The "floating rib" is not affected by barrel heat and expansion during prolonged firing. it remains flat while the hot barrel expands. Sight grooves along the matte finish rib promote quick pointing.

For the shooter who wants the dependability and performance of a pump action shotgun at an economical 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 forend 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 forend 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.

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 1991 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 forend for ease of shooting and sure gripping and pumping.

The Combo Model has 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.

One-pin receiver group disassembly makes cleaning and inspection fast and easy. A cross-bolt safety is conveniently located in front of the trigger.

This permits the use of a strong lightweight space age alloy material to be used for the receiver, thus reducing the weight of the gun by nearly half a pound and improving its balance. Because the Armor-Lock[TM]' system completely surrounds the shot shell, all forces are concentric with the bore thus more of the recoil energy is used to drive the bolt and bolt housing rearward in an absolutely straight line helping the shooter to stay on target for faster, more accurate follow up shots. In effect it anticipates the shooter's next shot.

Technical advancements necessitated by ever increasing world wide 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, but in addition the internal components coated with this substance benefit from its lubricating properties which are suspended in an 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 plated 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 molded 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.
