What is a winchester model 120 ranger 20 gauge worth? I have seen anywhere from 300 to 1800. Is it also true that only 1500 of the 20 gauge were produced?

Right back at you...

I have been collecting Winchesters for 30+ years. I am a Life Member of the Winchester Arms Collectors Association (WACA), am currently on the WACA Board of Directors, and I am also the current WACA Historian. Additionally, I have been a member of the Cody Firearms Museum for the past 15-years, and I have worked in the research office as a part time volunteer for the past 8-years. I have done more "research" in regards to Winchester"s history that you can possibly conceive!

The "Winchester" that you spoke with is not truly "Winchester". Instead, they are a division of the Browning Firearms Co., which is wholly owned by Fabrique Nationale (FN). They lease the rights to use the trade marked "WINCHESTER" name from the Olin Corporation. The company that actually built the Model 120 was the U.S. Repeating Arms Co.

(USRACo), which went bankrupt in 1992/3 and was eventually bought by FN Herstal. If you read the information the Winchester division of Browning has put up on their website, it is full of disclaimers concerning the accuracy of the information they have listed. It is you that is truly ignorant of the real facts.
