One of the nicest Model 23’s that we have run across, this Winchester is a small time capsule from 1979. This beautiful double barrel 12 gauge is very lightly used in near mint condition and comes with its original Factory Box and Hang Tag. The Pidgeon Grade engraving is sharp and exquisite, as is the checkering on the walnut stocks. The 26″ barrels, with vent rib, mid-bead and white front bead, are fixed choked in Improved Cylinder and Modified (lead or steel shot). The single select trigger/safety allows you to choose which barrel to fire first, left or right. It is rare to find these guns in this nice condition, let alone with factory box and hang tag. The Box has seen the most wear of all, but is in great condition given its age. Don’t ponder on this rare bird too long, she’ll be migrating quickly!!
