Re: 1893 Winchester RIFLE not shotgun?????
Just another FWIW (aka Interesting Trivia)
If you go to the Browning Museum in Ogden UT you will see what we call the Winchester M1894 displayed as the Browning M1893. Same thing with the other JMB designed Winchesters. (M1895=M1894, M1886=M1885, M1885=M1884, etc.......) It all makes sense when you realize they are his prototypes.
(I can't even imagine what they would sell for on the open market.)
