Fortunately i dont know the exact model. i want to buy one. ive seen it in a dealer magazine but they no longer offer it from this place. its the remanufactured version of the orginal that was made in the 1890's. it comes with a 19 1/4 in bbl with walnut furniture on it. i really desire one of these. does anybody have a website or somewhere that i can get one?? i have wanted one of these for years...

Google "Winchester 1887" or "Winchester 1901".
I think Interstate Arms is the importer of the copies. There are some originals available but they are pricey.

I don't know anything about Chiappa's quality. I'd look around for an IAC if it was me.

For almost $2000 they better be good quality!

Interstate arms corp is the importer for the chinese copy of the win 1887. Its called the norinco model 87w.

Here for under $400 http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/37_288/products_id/11662

Try a search on google for "norinco model 87" and you will get more places to buy from as well.

By the way that sure looks like a neat shotgun! Now I want one.

I've got a Norinco 97 but this one is the real deal.

Perfect for hunting Terminators.

I have a norinco myself, it's very well made, it's largely used in europe for Cowboy Action Shooting and people having it seem to be very happy with it, the only changes I made but it's only because I like to be sure, have been to ask a gunsmith to make new springs for it. Norinco use great steel for their barrels and receivers but I don't like their spings.
