Clarification may be needed I think. Winchester did close their doors, but the parent company ( Olin ) did also enter into an agreement with Browning to continue making several models of the old Winchester line. Both companies are in fact owned by FN Herstal.and Winchester is no longer making ANY guns.
100% agreed. They have good backing now, and the Winchester line has a good rep, so I am hoping they will reintroduce some of the old stuff as well.True Dat, Dilliger. Hopefully they (FNH) will start producing more of the old Winchester product line. I am doubtful they will reintroduce the M-100. It was not a very successful rifle.
I have never seen a Winchester Model 100 in caliber 358 winchester, read about it somewhere before but never actually seen one or even a pic, could you please post a few closeups pics, include one of the caliber stamp on the barrel too. Are you sure it is a Winchester Model 100 Autoloader or the Model 88 Lever acton ? Thanksi recently purchased two model 100 Winchester rifles as part of a package deal. One is chambered for .308 Winchester and the other is chambered for .358 Winchester. I am thinking about using them for the upcoming hunting season. Are there any maintenance / reliability issues I should be aware of? Are there any gunsmithing kinks I need to perform to improve these weapons?
