Cimmaron 1897 Pump Action Shotgun 12 ga., 20" Barrel
|Bud's Item # |
John M. Browning's first slide or pump-action shotgun became Winchester's 1893 model, designed to handle black powder shotshells. However, after encountering some mechanical difficulties and the fact that it was unable to handle the then-new smokeless powder ammunition, a similar looking, but redesigned and improved model--the famed 1897 pump shotgun--was brought out. The 1897 Winchester was not only an immediate success with both civilian hunters, but the military as well, and with well over a million '97s produced between 1897-1957, this scattergun was the best-selling slide-action shotgun on the market and is undoubtedly the most famous pump shotgun of all time!
The action it took part in, during the climactic gunfight in the final scenes of the 1969 classic western The Wild Bunch, combined with it's silky smooth action and rapid fire capability has had much to do with its popularity with today's Cowboy Action Shooters. Cimarron's 1897 Pump Shotgun is an authentic clone of the original Winchester with its Standard Blue finish, 20-inch barrel with choke tube (Modified), that handles 2 3/4-inch, 12 gauge shells, and a walnut stock and forearm. Weighing in at a handy 7.15 pounds, this scattergun is easy to swing into action, fire and reload, during those fast-paced competitions. Cimarron's 1897 Pump Shotgun is the choice of champions!
