Video: Winchester Model 24 Shotgun

Winchester's Model 24 double-barrel shotgun was introduced in 1939, just prior to the U.S. entering World War II, when most minds were not on sporting guns. Only about 116,000 of them were manufactured before it was discontinued from the Winchester catalog in the late 1950s. The shotgun, which was made to compete with the foreign side-by-sides of the time, has been described as Plain Jane and clunky—perfect for a no-frills gun that was designed to put food on the table. To learn more about this utilitarian shotgun, watch this "I Have This Old Gun" segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV.
