What sort of problems are Win 1300 noted for?

Just bought a used one and was wondering what sort of problems are they noted for?

I figure that there must be a reason that law enforcement and the military stayed away from them?

Only problems I know of them having (I own 2 of them) is that they are light, reliable, and generally pattern very well with a good turkey choke.

You can short-shuck them and jamb them up, but you can do that with almost any pump. I've been using my 1300 turkey for at least 15 years without a hitch. I often think about buying one of the newer Turkey shotguns, but my 1300 has killed every one it shot at !

That short shucking stuck shell thing happened to my buddy last weekend. He has a late 80`s Winchester Ranger which I think may be similar to the 1300?

This. I only own one now. A 26" bbl's full camo, Universal Hunter series. I have owned 5 of them and honestly regret selling every single one of them. Great guns.

Remington and Mossberg offered a better price than Winchester.

Re: What sort of problems are Win 1300 noted for?

I had the vented rib mounts break on mine shortly after I got it. They replaced the barrel and it has been an awesome gun for the past 20 years. Very accurate for a short gun.

Why do they call it common sense when it is so rare.
