Whilst going through my late uncle's belongings -- we came across a shotgun. I like guns, they're fun to shoot and I respect them, but I don't know
crap about models and history.
I did some cursory google searches and found very little. Hence why I am coming to you guys. Maybe the combined power of the ATS gun nuts can help me
find some history on this piece for my family?
The gun says it's a "Winchester Model 50". It has a carved wooden stock (scene of birds/ducks?), and a barrel with what looks to me like a "rail"
across the top. The end of the barrel has what looks like a flash suppressor, but apparently it's a thing you twist to adjust the choke.
From what I can gather on google and just handling it -- it's a semi-auto.
There isn't anything out there on this thing. It looks practically brand new. There is a little bit of scratching on the plastic piece on the end of
the stock, and some rubbing around where the shells go in. Overall on a scale of 1-10 ... I'd give this thing an 8. It looks like it might have seen
50 shotgun rounds through it.
Does anyone have any info on this model of gun? I'd like to outfox my family and bring some history and facts about it to the dinner table this
