Sad to do it but must sell: 1933 Winchester Model 42. 26 Inch, full, 3", Vent Rib. Family owned from day one. Delivered to my Grandfather in Omaha in 1933. Gun was ordered with a rib. (Model 42 "experts": I am aware of the factory history and Simmons and ribs- ad nauseum) Note, Winchester would do special work for special orders - they farmed them out. This gun was ordered with a vent rib and delivered with a vent rib. Winchester had the work done or did the work. The price is great, and this is because the stock was/is shaved on one side (NOT cut down) to fit a 10 year old kid - my dad. I could re-stock and claim that it is all original and nobody would know - except me. Price is $1500.00. Everything on this gun is original. There is some pitting on the receiver - keep in mind it is 74 years old and it was used! Bore is excellent. Email me for pictures. Serious inquiries only. Please no history lessons or lectures - I have spent almost 6 months researching; Family, friends, Buffalo Bill Museum, Blue Book, Model 42 Book and a very, very nice ol'timer that has forgotten more about Winchester Shotguns than most people will ever know. Thank you for your interest.
