    Winchester Pigeon Trap

    Well today I went to the local gun store looking for some O/U skeet and trap guns. After talking to some people on here I decided I wanted to see if I could get a used gun. So I walk in look at the new ones for a while, shoulder a couple and nothing felt very good. Then hanging on the wall above the other guns I see a used O/U. I ask for it and shoulder a Winchester Pigeon Grade XTR. I instantly liked it but the price I felt was a little high so after looking at it for a while I told the sales man I would think about it, and I was serious I was gonna come home and look at gun broker and other sites and look at prices. Then he said he would lower it $300 to $1300 total. Which I felt was a good deal. I can't wait to go shoot tomorrow when the wind dies down.

    Very nice. I've handled a couple of the Winchesters O/U, and they always felt good. No experience shooting them due to lack of funds.

    Congratulations!

    If I call Winchester and give them the serial number, what kind of information can they give me about the gun?

    yeah, that was a good price. Very fair. Winchester will probably tell approx. when it was made and maybe, just maybe what distributor had it from the factory. This is interesting because it can give you a clue as to where the original owner was.
