I'm happy either way! If it's a Ranger or a Walnut Field, because it's in great condition. I really like the defenders model!

I had a 12ga Wincheater model 1200. I wrote Winchester about how the bolt would open and eject the empty if I shot it without holding the fore end. Wincheater said that it was normal and 'helped the arm/hand holding the fore end to start the pump cycle! Does your 1300 do that?

From what I've read on a couple sites that is normal for 1200 and 1300 shotguns. I have yet to shot my 1300 and I'm pretty sure my would also do the same.

From the Winchester Website:

"Speed Pump’s rotary bolt design features four massive lugs that allows inertia to start the forearm and slide mechanism rearward as the stock recoils against the shoulder, giving a head start on the next shot. Dual steel action bars eliminate twisting, binding and wasted time and energy when cycling the action."

I think this will help explain it!

It was very unnerving for a 17 year old! If not held [fore arm] I would eject the fired empty and propel the forearm all the way to the rear! It does have a very strong rotary bolt method of locking, just rotates and opens at recoil.

Very nice looking 1300 ya got there. Nice it came with the deer barrel. Mine is the Upland Model with the English style straight grip stock. Last summer scored a 22 inch deer slug barrel from Midwest Gun Supply. Bought mine back in 99 and never given me a problem. The 24 inch barrel on the Upland makes for a decent field gun. Good luck with yours.

I remember when Winchester caught a lot of flack back in 1964 for discontinuing the Model 12 to introduce the Model 1200, but the 1200 and 1300 has been in production for many, many years.

Yeah they sure did. No stampings in those old ones like the Model 12 and Remington Model 31. Admit my 1300 ain't made like the Model 12 but still has proved reliable.

I looked up the serial number and it said it was manufactured in 1989. It came with two barrels: (1)Bird barrel and (1) Deer barrel. but IDK if they both originally came with the shotgun. It looks like it's never been shot when I took it apart and cleaned it, and it's in almost perfect shape. Any information would be great!
Love it,Absolute beauty!

I actually have been after the same model in a defender with the similiar ribbed blonde wood, seen a few just haven't found one in the condition I want yet. Enjoy it, its a greater pointer, dove clipper, or skeet gun. I actually prefer it for shooting skeet over an auto.


I wish these two beauties was mine!
