Winchester Model 101

Aficionados of Winchester® shotguns know well the Model 101. The styling and handling are legendary, the reliability never in question. Today’s Model 101s are the full equal of the sought-after original with the added benefits of modern manufacturing techniques and an advanced low profile design for handling performance. One thing that isn’t new is the high standard of quality you expect from a Winchester shotgun. And, like the greatest over and unders in history, they’re made in Belgium.

The Winchester Model 101 Field is an over-under shotgun chambered in 12 gauge. The Model 101 is a series of over-under shotguns that have a beautiful Walnut stock with glossy finish and engraving in the receiver.

Features include a vent rib barrel with a brass bead front sight. The safety's located on the tang or on the back of the grip. A vented Pachmayr Decelerator pad, which adds comfort to the shoulder and reduces felt recoil. The ported barrel also helps reduce recoil because it diverts gases that would otherwise contribute to rearward force. And it uses Browning's Invector-Plus chokes that help control the spread and range of the shot.

The barrel has been back-bored to a larger diameter than most shotguns, 0.742" to be precise. The result of this process gives a 12 gauge shot a wide, yet tight shot pattern, which is beneficial to most shotgunners--especially those who shoot skeet or clay.
