    Winchester Shotguns, where are they made?

    I'm curious where the Winchester 1300s are made, trying to avoid Turkey(the country, the birds are ok).

    yah what's wrong with turkish shotguns - don't look too close to what you think is red white and blue, even other big names are made there. And considering that some place called Herstal is the owner.

    The 1300’s? Or the new shotguns? I’m pretty sure the older 1200 and 1300 models were made in USA. As for the newer stuff, from elsewhere:
    The SXP pumps are made in Turkey. The SX3 autos are made in Belgium and assembled in Portugal. The 101's are made in Belgium and assembled in Belgium.
    That’s from a few years ago, but probably little has changed.

    According to Winchester http://www.winchesterguns.com/suppor...ufactured.html check the barrel. It is stamped there.

    also the new wildcat 22 is Made in Turkey.

    according to this web site https://modernfirearms.net/en/shotgu...ster-1300-eng/ it is made in the US.

    That's interesting, don't see many rifles coming there afaik

    Kenny: the older 1200/1300s, just to be different from the mossbergs and remys at the range.

    Yeah I try to avoid Turkish made firearms. They make nice guns, but their government and what they stand by. Is what I cannot stand behind.
