There are minimal handling marks and when we received this shotgun, it was close to factory wrapped in its original box. We cautiously unwrapped it, not knowing whether it had ever been opened before. We found light shell rings indicating that indeed this shotgun had been fired a couple of times before. Now is your chance to own a rare, almost like new 28 Gauge Winchester 101 in its original box.
