Today I came across this Winchester 1300 Ranger for a $175.
I checked the barrel/bore for fouling found no signs, checked the action-smooth, looked it over with a fine tooth comb. This shotgun has to be the best 1300 I've seen, barely any use what-so-ever. Makes me wonder why so cheap? I buy the gun figuring if there are problems I can fix it at a minimal cost. I take my new to me shotgun to my local range. At the range I borrow some tools and take apart the gun and inspect & clean everything. Unbelievable the gun is basically new. I reassemble the gun and buy some ammo, clays and range time. The gun performed flawlessly!!
This makes 7 shotguns for me. I have 3 Remingtons; (2) 870s, (1) 1100.
3 Winchesters; (1) Model 12, (1) Model 1500 XTR, now (1) 1300 Ranger and 1 Weatherby SAS Field. So that's 4 pumps and 3 semi-auto's.
I plan on making my new to me Win. 1300 Ranger a competition gun, but I have to do some work to it first; trigger pull needs to be less, action can get better, and get some custom competition choke tubes.
Did I go over-board here?
How many shotguns do you own?
