Winchester 1897

I am looking to get one of these to either make into or have as a riot gun, perhaps even turning it into a trench gun. What do you all think about these in 12 gauge as a fighting shotgun with some history?

I have a 1912 with a bent barrel that I am considering cutting down and having it bored for choke tubes.

When someone is asking about a sawed-off shotgun, maybe you shouldn't question their motives. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

i just picked one up , its not sawed off , it is one of the shorter versions , they are highly sought after for SASS cowboy action shooting as one of the few allowed for 'wild bunch' , that was my main intent , but had that nagging itch to add the trench gun bits :cry:
