Old Winchester Model 97
This old Winchester was my grandfather's shotgun that he hunted with..he loved to go rabbit hunting with his beagles. Those dogs were really good. I hunted with with him when I was in my teen years and remember that old gun...I was regulated to a Winchester Model 37 single shot 410 back then as I was just getting started. I acquired this about 25 years ago and only shoot it a few times a year..tried it at a turkey shoot and couldn't hit crap..heavy trigger. It shows it's age..serial number puts it at 1906 and it has a mirror bore. Granddad took very good care of his equipment and it shows. Here's a few pics of an old one that will stay in the family.

Those old 97s, if in any shape at all, get scarfed up quick by the cowboy action shooting crowd. Always admired the gun, but one I've never owned or shot.

I can say the same ncg. I have always wanted one, just never found one. I didn't want a reproduction, but might rethink that in the future.

I sure love those 97s, but I'm a sucker for hammers. I bought mine a little over a year ago, after lookin for 5-6 years for a nice one. Like NCG says, those cowboy action folks scarf'em up quick, and keep the prices high.
I wouldn't mind havin one of those new CZ Hammer Coach double barrels either, but they're close to $900, if you can find one.
