    Received a lot of mail and even a few phone calls but no money in hand on this site so had no choice to list on Gunbroker http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.asp?Item=127173111

    Maybe somebody wants to take a second look.

    Hey -- I am confused -- you say this is a "Classic Doubles" and you say it is a Winchester 101 -- which is it ?? The two are not the same thing - Classic Doubles was made after Winchester stopped making them or something like that! And if it is a Classic Double shotgun the model number would not be a 101. the beav

    It's the same basic platform as a 101 made by Japanese manufacturer Miroku. When the Classic Doubles version was marketed they had overboard barrels whiched really tamed them down, recoilwise. I believe the triggers were improved as well.

    A pretty servicable trapgun especially for a new shooter.

    The 101 Winchester and the Classic Doubles that followed were not made by Miroku, They were made by Kodensha in Tochigi, Japan.

    Yes, Kodensha in Tochigi ended up making Winchester guns and called them Classic Doubles, a name they purchased from Winchester. They did produce an entry level trap gun but never a Diamond Grade gun.

    This gun called a "Classic Double" was manufactured by Winchester in it's classic Diamond Grade pattern. Took a picture of the boxend which clearly notes the gun as a "Winchester" but having a problem putting it in Photobucket for posting to this board, Oh Well, will keep on trying.

    That is very strange - I have to admit I have never seen that combination of names before and the label on the box looks genuine too. You may have a Winchester collectors dream there. the beav

    Adjustable comb is aftermarket and a fantastic job at that, almost as good as Tron's work - - - - Ha Ha

    Something of interest, Winchester only imported this gun during 1986 and 1987. the beav

    CalvinMD, can't tell you who did the adjustable comb work but it is perfect. Purchased this gun 4 or 5 years back from a older gentlemen that claimed that it had only a flat of shells thru it, believe me, the condition of the gun verified it. Since I have owned it there has been only a couple boxes of shells thru it. Guess the best way to determine how much it has been shot is to take a look at the jeweling on the reciver for wear and there is not much.
