What I have here is a Winchester Model 1901 10gauge lever action shotgun. Serial number puts manufacture year 1907.

This gun is all original, it has not been re-blued nor has the wood been refinished. Over 80 percent of bluing is left with some brownish patina and some freckling. There are a couple dings in the metal and the wood shows some wear but no large gouges or cracks. Action is smooth and tight, screw heads are not buggered up. Steel butt plate is intact. Stock fit is excellent. Overall the gun has a nice patina to it showing it’s time in the field.

I am asking $1700.00 and I’ll split shipping with you to anywhere USA since I’m in Alaska.

Here's a video and a link to a bunch of pics. I think the high res pics and video magnify all the imperfections, that the gun looks much better holding it in your hand.

"The Model 1901 utilized the same action design as the Model 1887, but it featured a newer alloy steel specifically designed for the new smokeless powders. It was offered in 10-Gauge 2 ⅞” chamber only, and a blued receiver frame only.

Production of the Model 1901 began on June 29th, 1899 at serial number 64856, and it ended on November 5th, 1931 at serial number 78356. Total production was just 13,500 guns, with the bulk of the production occurring prior to 1925.

Special order options were the same as the Model 1887. The standard barrel was a 30-inch rolled fluid steel, with a three-blade “Good” damascus steel, or a four-blade “Fine” damascus steel barrel available at extra cost through year 1913.

Original Winchester factory records are available for this model (including the Model 1887) from the Cody Firearms Museum in Cody, Wyoming, from serial number 1 thru 17999. Polishing Room serialization records are available through serial number 78356."
