Product Description

The M1897 Trench Gun

The Winchester Model 1897 was a pump action shotgun designed by John Browning for the Winchester arms company, just in time for 20th century. The M1897 Trench Shotgun would go on to serve US armed forces for more than half of the century, used in both WWI and WWII. As the name indicates, it was originally taken into service as a close-range weapon for WWI trench warfare. It remained in service with US Army and USMC throughout WWII and is easily distinquishable for its bayonet attachment and air cooling holes.

His new shotgun design took advantage of developing smokeless ammunition and came in multiple configurations. M1897 Trench Gun had a special heat shield grip that was used in trenches to prevent the weapon from being damaged during and between shots. Five rounds were stored in the tubular magazine under the barrel, with one round in the chamber itself. Some shotguns had a special bayonet adapter, which could attach a standard-issue bayonet.
