    Has anyone ever seen one of these sell? It is in unfired condition with a partial case of aluminum shells. A search of the net didn't turn up anything.

    Looking for resources on this gun.

    Thanks,
    Lee Searle

    Is this a true 14 ga straight walled shell, or is it like the old British 14 ga that was a 12 ga necked down?

    If you can find a copy look in the "Lyman - History of the American Shotgun". At one time Winchester was trying, in the fifties, an aluminum 14 gauge cartridge that contained 12ga components. In other words the shell was 14 gauge because the aluminum wall was thin but the bore diameter was 12 gauge. The idea was a one piece hull that would be very reloadable.


    They had trouble with the case and they could not get the crimps to work properly and consistantly and abandoned the project. The crimp end was hemisphearical almost like half a ball with the petals intertwined.


    Shortly thereafter Winchester began development of the AA compression formed one piece hull.


    All of this is covered in the book mentioned above however I believe it has been out of print for quite some time.
