Old School: Take Down Winchesters (Model 62 .22 and Takedown variant of Model 97 Trench Shotgun)

    Miles takes a look at two historical take down Winchesters.

    The classic Winchester .22 Model 62 take down rifle (Rossi 62A reproduction). These pump action rifles are simple to operate and have a 15 round high capacity tube magazine. They are fun to shoot and inexpensive to purchase.

    The Model 97 Trench/Riot Shotgun, well known for its use during WWI, was also available in a lesser known takedown version which did not see military use.
