Why should I buy a Winchester 101 shotgun?

The Winchester 101 shotgun has many great features.

Low-Profile Receiver
Your 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. In-line recoil, less muzzle jump for faster follow up shots.

Familiar Dimensions
The familiar drop at comb and heel as well as the narrow, comfortable grip ensure time-tested levels of comfort and performance.

Grip Cap
The model 101has an elegantly fitted grip cap.

Pachmayer Decelerator Recoil Pad
The Pachmayer Decelerator reduces felt recoil to a very manageable level.

Cut Checkering
Finely cut checkering to improve grip also adds artistic elegance to the walnut stock and forearm.

.742 Back-Bored Technology
Extensive research and testing has proven that when it comes to back-boring, .742” is the ideal interior barrel diameter, ensuring tight, consistent patterns. Any larger and gases blow by the shot cup and reduce pellet velocity. Too small and the pellets are deformed as they pass through the forcing cone, causing poor ballistic performance.

Invector-Plus Chokes
All 101 shotguns come with either extended Signature Series or flush-mounted Invector Plus tubes.

Truglo Sights
The Truglo sight system are put on our target 101 for quick target acquisition.

Steel-Tough Hinge
All hinge areas bear tension from recoil with each shot, so the Model 101 is built with surfaces that are 49% larger than many competitors. The surfaces are machined simultaneously with the hinge to ensure perfect alignment. The locking lugs have 30% more contact surface than the competition for an action that’s built to last.

Chrome Plated Chambers and Bores
All Winchester Model 101 shotguns have chrome-plated chambers and bores that stand up to the abuse thousands of shells can take.
