Trench Shotgun
« on: April 19, 2016, 10:40:11 AM »
Hey folks, I have the opportunity to buy this from a local veteran but I don't know much about them. From what I've been told it is an 1897 Winchester trench gun with matching bayonet. Is there anything I should look out for or any ideas on what something like this may be valued at? [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

That's a handsome looking piece. Is it street-legal?

I think its legal. Any ideas on markings I need to look for or value of it?

It is legal in the Us.  There are numerous things to look at to determine if its GI or just one converted and I'm not learned enough to tell you.  You might ask these guys.
