    Very good -- people tend to forget about Winchesters these days as a result of their going out of business. But to be clear, the moose and bears where hunting YOU?

    Even though Winchester isn't really around and making these anymore you can still get what is basically the same gun, now made by FN.

    The only problem with the Winchester 1300 is the limited acessories on the market. I wish they would have offered ghost ring sights, but the FN picked up where Win left off. The FN pump shotguns are fine offerings at somewhat elevated prices. I have two Winchester pump guns, an old Defender and a Ranger 120. My agency used to use them exclusively. Went to 870's when Winchester went out of business. The Remington QC went down hill so much we switched to Mossberg 590's. We will be selling off the old 1200s and 1300s soon. I plan on buying several.
