Product Information & Specs

Seller Description

Winchester Model 59 12GA Semi-Auto Shotgun 2 Chokes, Original Manual. Made between 1960-1965 and in great condition with a good action. Ready to take out and shoot. The basis of the Model 59 came from the Model 50, a shotgun designed using patents from Jonathan E. Browning (one of John Brownings sons). The weapon was essentially a highly-modernized version of the Model 50 that came a few years prior.[1] The Model 59 was introduced in 1959 and was first listed in Winchesters catalog in 1960;[2] this was Winchesters fourth semi-automatic shotgun offering.[3] Using an ingenious advertisement campaign touting the weapons benefits over its contemporaries, the Model 59s use of modern technology for the time was extremely heavily advertised, the most prominent features of which were its aluminum receiver, lightweight Win-Lite barrels[4] and the Versalite interchangeable choke system.[5] Despite its futuristic technology for the time, the Model 59 was not a commercial success,[1] with production ending in 1965 after some 82,085 were produced.[6] Design Details The Model 59 was a semi-automatic shotgun using a short recoil action. Unlike most other short recoil designs, the barrel on the Model 59 is completely static. Instead, the weapon uses a floating breech system consisting of a chamber and forcing cone patented by David Marshall Williams; when the weapon fires, this breech moves back about 0.1 inches (0.25 centimetres), causing the bolt to move backwards. A return spring pushes the bolt back forwards.[6] The weapon uses special Win-Lite glass fiber barrels which are made of some 500 miles (800 kilometres) of glass fiber tubes wound around, fused and bonded to a thin steel liner.[2] The weapons receiver is made out of a lightweight aluminum and has hand-finished and hand-checkered walnut stocks.[6] The weapon also uses the Versalite interchangeable choke system and the side of the receiver is often engraved

PEACE OF MIND

Shopping at Guns.com gives you the backing of a company that is committed to your satisfaction.  And unlike our competitors, it extends beyond the buying process.  We get the FFL from your store – others make you find it, copy it, and fax it.  We have a generous return policy, and handle everything – you don’t have to go back to the store.  And our Rangemasters are here to answer all your questions about our products or process.  We're bringing a level of service to the online gun buying experience that is unheard of.























WE SUPPORT LOCAL GUN
STORES
WE SUPPORT LOCAL GUN STORES

Many online gun sales actually take away from your local community.  Instead of buying a gun that’s on your local store’s shelf, most retailers drop ship it from a warehouse in another state.  At Guns.com, if an FFL is part of our network, we sell THEIR guns first whenever possible.  That way, we’re helping small businesses in your community AND if they have it in stock, you can pick your gun up IMMEDIATELY – it’s how business should be done.























WE KEEP IT SIMPLE
WE KEEP IT SIMPLE

Most everything can be easily bought online these days.  But for some reason, buying a gun online can be complicated.  Most websites are poorly organized, don’t tell you a lot about what you’re buying, and leave you on your own to figure out what you want.  Guns.com is built to be simple – easily organized products, useful descriptions from experts, and support to guide you to the right choice.  Spend your time enjoying the gun you want, not getting frustrated with a complex website that makes gun buying hard.
