Random Want

I have been looking around for a reproduction of the Winchester 1897 Trench gun. Saw a movie thought it was cool so I kind of want one.

I have seen online the Norico ones but it is hard to find solid info on one.

Are there other options I have missed? I think Mossberg might make a similar appearing one but I have not been able to find it.

Experience with Norinco Model 97

I have had one for a few years. The price is right, but mine does not function as smoothly as i would like. I also have a bad left shoulder so its no fun to work the action. Lots of CAS shooters use them. If you really want a trench gun the appx $300 price is way better than the multiple thousands necessary for an original .
