    I am looking for parts for the Winchester Model 1887 (12 GA.) : hammer, internal springs, mainspring, carriers, lifters, sideplate screws etc. Does anyone out there know if parts of the 1887 reproductions made by Norinco and others are interchangeable with the Winchester Model 1887?

    thanks, DUHHILLBILLY

    I just picked up a very high quality left-hand extractor and ejector for my 1897 from Brownell's.
    GunParts (Numerich) has a good selection. some parts need to be hand-fitted.
    Good luck

    I just purchased a Winchester 1887 12 GA., which is missing some parts. Does anyone have a schematic or a parts list or any advice for direction in hunting what is missing from my work of art?
    thanks in advance.

    I'm lucky, I have the whole shotgun, an original in good shape, re-installing the firing piece of cake but for the life of me can't remember how the V spring goes back into the internal lever/hammer section???? I have done 26 firearms in 6 weeks and may be getting "gun lag", eh, eh. Just a good nights sleep and some dreaming and it will hopefully all come together again,

    I would like to get an idea of what this could be worth. Serial# 26140 Winchester model 1887 12g.
    Very little rust fairly even patina. No cracks in the stocks. It will cycle 2-3/4" shells but I have not fired it(I'm sure it wouldn't be a good idea to do so). I'm considering trading my Kimber Pro Carry II for it. From what I have researched so far and I hope I am correct, it was manufactured late February 1889. Any info on it or its value would be greatly appreciated.

    The hammer spring goes in the bottom of the drop down housing. The hook end goes on the bottom of the hammer with the flat end going up on the hammer. The back sets in the lower part of the drop down housing facing toward the but stock. Hope this helps
