    Winchester 101 XTR Lightweight - 12 bore

    A Winchester 101 XTR Lightweight 12 bore sporting gun in very good condition. 28" barrels (excellent bores) with 8mm ventilated top rib, chambered for 2.75" cartridges and bored at 1/2 & full choke. Nicely engraved action featuring pheasant, partridge and woodcock in panels. Single selective trigger with manual safety. Figured walnut 14.25" pistol grip stock with Winchester butt plate. Comes in a Vanguard padded carry case.

    700 collected from South Bedfordshire, or happy to RFD at cost.

    wish i had room in my cabinet for it, i deeply regret selling mine and getting the later super select model.
    One of the most under rated shotguns ever made, IMHO.
    I wish I was half the hunter my dog thinks I am

    I agree, one of my favourite personal shotguns is a Winchester Supergrade which is very similar in build but with the 'Prince of Wales' rounded pistol grip. This 101 is in very good order.

    My wife shoots one of these. Without sounding sexist they are a great gun for ladies - so easy to open. They are not a 3" heavy shell gun, being lightweight they can kick. 21G cartridges on clays and 25g on game is a nice load for this gun.

    I don't think she'd ever part with hers. Good luck with the sale.

    I have just bought one in 20 bore it comes up really well but the prices are rising quite fast and you don't see many in 20 bore.Mine was a bit of a sleeper sold by a lady in her 70s and used infrequently on clays has had less than 1000 cartridges through it and is fixed choke
