I have recently obtained a shotgun from my Grandfathers estate. My mother did not know he had this and suspects it was his father's. Anyway, I can not find any information on this. Can someone help me date this shotgun, and/or provide any history about it. Thanks.


Single Shot 410, Breech Load
Winchester Mod 20-410
Serial Num (I think): 3501

Model 20- .410 bore, single shot, hammer, boxlock, 26 in. full choke (a few guns have been observed with cylinder choking), 6 pounds. Mfg. 23,616 between 1919-1924. .....Fjestad.

Do some lookin around and there is the remote chance that you will find a cased kit with small hand trap, clay birds and shell boxes. A few were sold as kits, gun, thrower, shells and targets. Complete kits are rare and worth major bucks.
