    Recently came into possession of a Winchester Model 1300. It seems to be a pretty nice gun: 28" ribbed barrel, screw-in chokes, rotary bolt, easy action, the wood is oak but looks OK. I'd appreciate comments.
    Thank You,

    Might be a fair starter gun...looks like the comb is set up for field shooting, chances are it's way too low...cheapest way to build it up would be with a Cheekeez pad or Meadows Industry Converta Stock pad.
    Good luck, puablo

    Broke my first clays with one. Barrel's a little stubby, stock a little low, but otherwise fine. A mechanically-solid gun and with a little bondo on the stock (or perhaps made adjustable), you really wouldn't need anything else for singles.

    You can fit it with a trap stock from a mod. 1200. The stock will interchange and there are still a few floating around. It is a mechanically sound gun and makes a god strarter or back up.
