Did Winchester make a 28 gauge in the 101? If so, were they Japanese made? Thanks

    I just purchased a Winchester 101 Pigeon grade 20 ga. from a local private individual in about 99% condition for $1,500. This is one beautiful gun!! My question is, it is full choke over modified which does not fit for what I would probably use it for which is dove hunting. How much would I hurt the collectability by taking it to Briley's ( just down the road ) and having the top barrel bored out to modified? Also, what is your opinion on the gun itself?

    Does anyone know anything about a 101 made that is a ruffed grouse society custom shop gun? I can't find anything out about it. It has a gold ruffed grouse on the underside of the reciever is new in the box in 20 gauge. It also has a silver or nickel reciever. Ser # 192

    Does anyone have the thread specifications (metric?) for the 101 Winchester? Also need a source for replacements, front and mid-rib. I have looked in my all my books and have not found the info I need.
    Thanks!

    Another source would be http://doublegunshop.com/showler.htm

    He specializes in 101's and 23's.

    I know Remington is making one now.
