Winchester 501 Grand European 12 Ga Trap Gun

This is one of the fabulous Winchester 501 Grand European O/U trap guns that were made in the 80’s in Japan at Olin-Kodensha. It features 30” vent rib barrels with mid and front beads, 2-3/4” chambers and IM & FULL chokes (fixed), bright satin finished frame and forend metal with 95% rose and scroll engraving coverage and extra select hand checkered walnut stocks with Schnabel forend and Monte Carlo butt with ventilated Pachmayr recoil pad, 14-1/4” LOP, ST, jeweled interior surfaces, auto ejectors and it comes in its fitted Winchester trunk case. It retains about 95% original blue with some scattered scratches and small oxidation stains while the bores are perfect mirrors and the stocks are completely sound with a handful of moderately deep scratches (some are cuts really) and it appears that someone sanded the butt on the right side and applied some kind of finish(s) leaving a cosmetic eyesore. Also; an engraved monogram plate was sloppily glued on the toe line. There’s a ˝” faint round shadow on the right side of the frame that isn’t oxidation (we examined it microscopically) and may be removed with the right solvent (its barely noticeable really). Lock-up is vault like and is 100% on-face, the selector and auto ejectors work as they should and the top lever comes to rest at the center. Internal indications suggest only moderate use at the most. A mechanically excellent trap gun that has had its butt abused and is looking for a good man to service it.
