    I am looking at purchasing a winchester 101 diamond seril number DG549627E, trying to determine the year of mfg. This gun is 32 in with raised VR. I posted the description earlier but forgot to ask about the mfg. date. I am considering trading a Beretta 686 black onyx sporting clays model for the win 101 diamond. Any info on yr mfg. and your thoughts on the possible trade would be appreciated. Thanks

    Go to shotgun world - they have a Winchester forum, and a guy there named Ol' Cowboy - he may be able to help you.
