Aficionados of Winchester® shotguns know well the Model 101. The styling and handling are legendary, the reliability never in question. Today’s Model 101s are the full equal of the sought-after original with the added benefits of modern manufacturing techniques and an advanced low profile design for handling performance. One thing that isn’t new is the high standard of quality you expect from a Winchester shotgun. And, like the greatest over and unders in history, they’re made in Belgium.
If you are considering a fast-handling, smooth-swinging over and under shotgun, bring a Model 101 up to your shoulder at your Winchester Repeating Arms® dealer. It offers Belgian-made craftsmanship, engraved steel and finely cut checkered walnut at a low price few over and unders can match. Its strong action was tested by firing 25,000 shells without a single part failure. The low-profile receiver and mild recoil make the Model 101 extremely pleasant to shoot all day. The Model 101 begs to be examined and yearns to be yours.
Today’s Model 101® features the same FAMILIAR DIMENSIONS set long ago by the original. The familiar drop at comb and narrow, comfortable grip insure time-tested comfort and performance.
The Model 101® has the drop on the original with the advantage of a LOW-PROFILE RECEIVER. This means that recoil occurs in-line, directly back for faster follow-up shots with less muzzle jump. Also, your forward hand can be closer to the bore centerline, bringing your hands, face and sighting plane into a more natural alignment for more intuitive and accurate shooting.
Getting pounded by your gun is now a thing of the past with the patented PACHMAYR® DECELERATOR® RECOIL PAD with snag-free heel. Found on all Model 101® shotguns, it reduces felt recoil to very manageable levels, even when shooting heavy magnum loads
