it may not be a gun you'd want to lay a lot of rounds through, however considering I don't hunt (disabled and can't stand or walk for long periods like I used to) and am limited on funds, so I may only get around to actually going to the range once every month or two and fire 50-100 rounds at a time, it isn't going to be seeing an excessive amount of rounds, and based on physical condition of the gun I would say it hasn't seen much use either, it should be a good gun for me. Being it has a longer barrel (don't recall off hand if its a 28 or 30") I probably wouldn't even use it for home defense. If I have time to get a long arm out and use it I'd go for my Mossberg 500 20 gauge with 18.5" barrel on it.

It'll do just fine for you buddy I hope you get years and years of use out of it

bingo.

now biker, youre gonna notice the 1400 tends to be a little forearm heavy. to balance it out, just hold the gun with your hand further away from you and youll be fine.
my 1400's crushed targets until 'like i say,' the carriers self destructed. i cant count the number of people i taught first time shotgunning to on a 1400. they all did very well with them. enjoy it.

My favorite thing about the 1400 has to be the light recoil...I could shoot all day long and not be sore with that gun.....

Can't wait to get it and actually shoot it.....will be a few months though probably, as my parents are the one paying for it, and giving it to me as an early Christmas gift. Probably won't get it home until October or the the 1st of the month in November, and then it all depends whats the weather like after I get it home and cleaned up to when I'll actually get around to firing it. I'm gonna check with the local gun shop about 20 minutes from here who does their own gun smith work and that I do quite a bit of business with to see how much he'll want to go through the gun and give it a proper cleaning and replace any seals or anything that it might need before I take it out to shoot.

gas piston system on those things is borderline impossible! its the kind of design where you dont want to take it apart unless you know what youre doing. make sure you ask him to SHOW you how.
or...google winchester 1400 disassembly and learn on utube.

On top of what the Great Bobski Said: you might want to check if AGI has a DVD on it! Although I have not taken any of their courses, i'm enrolled @ Penn Foster studying to be a 'Smith & even they use AGI as a source for info on many Guns(at least my Online instructor does!) I have the ones on the 1911, Beretta & Taurus 92's, and a few rifles, plus the Remington 1100.

thanks guys, appreciate it. sounds like fun bobski, although probably won't make it as I don't see me or 'em having the extra cash for the needed ammo or the $50. Afterall both of us are on disability with limited income. So just have to play it out by ear and see. I was planning on getting a parts diagram and assembly book for it, but I'll see if I can sit in w/ the gun smith on the cleaning if I have him do it........Still got time though to figure it out.
