    Winchester 1300 Defender

    I was recently in a small gunstore looking for a set of reloading dies for my Dillon Square Deal B. They did not have them, but when I glanced in the rack I saw a like new in box WInchester 1300 Defender. I picked it up, racked its smooth action, and made the man a cash offer. I walked out with it and now have another Winchester in the safe. I hope it lasts like my 20 year old 1300 that I ues for bird hunting. Took it out last weekend and put some 00Buck and 1oz. rifled slugs through it. I am impressed and it is a part of my home defense strategy. Here they both are. What do ya say guys....I know most of you are Remington and Mossberg fans, but I love my Winchesters.

    It's a great shotgun, I have one just like it right next to the Remington 870 marine magnum and the Benellis......

    I got one back in the 80's for $132 out the door. I have killed more game, more deer, and several truck load of doves with it than any other long gun I have own. It rides in my truck with me all the time.

    I think the 1300 defender was one of the best price for value options available. I have one that I had bought to loan my daughter when she was living alone in the sticks. Since she's now married, I have it back but will never get rid of it. Great little gun. BTW, Winchester is now selling what appears to be essentially the same gun as the Super X Pump Defender. Glad they brought it back.

    Bumping this old thread to say I too, love my 1300 defender. From what I can find it was made in 1984.I family friend sold it to my dad back in the 90's and he eventually gave it to me. It's in pristine condition and one of my favorite guns.

    Winchester 1300. Smoothest, fastest pump action ever - Ithaca slammers not included!
