The Winchester Model 1897 was a pump action shotgun designed by John Browning for the Winchester arms company just in time for 20th century. M1897 Trench Shotgun would go on to serve US armed forces for more than half of the century including two World Wars.

His new shotgun design took advantage of developing smokeless ammunition and came in multiple configurations. M1897 Trench Gun had a special heat shield grip that was used in trenches to prevent the weapon from being damage during and between shots. Five rounds were stored in the tubular magazine under the barrel, with one round in the chamber itself. Some shotguns had a special bayonet adapter, which could attach a standard-issue bayonet.

Tanaka Works U.S. M1897 Trench Shotgun is a limited edition model gun that is no longer made. Today it is collectible and hard-to-come-by. The real U.S. M1897 Trench Shotgun was used in both WWI and WWII. As the name indicates it was originally taken into service as a close-range weapon for WWI trench warfare. It remained in service with US Army and USMC throughout the WWII and is easily distinquishable for it's bayonet attachment and air cooling holes.

Is this an firearm?
Model guns are not real firearms. In most countries model guns are legal to own and no license is needed to own one. Our model guns cannot shoot projectiles and will only cycle dummy ammunition. No projectile of any sort is fired, so these model guns are used primarily for display, re-enactment, recreational or movie propping purposes. You can recognize model guns from operating principle explanations.

How do model guns fire?
Model guns can be loaded and cocked like their real counterparts, but no projectile or plug fire cartridge is actually fired. The trigger assembly and safety are, however, functional. Dummy cartridges can be ejected like real, but require manual operation of cocking handle unlike in plug fire cartridge model guns which are either semiautomatic or fully automatic.

How realistic are model guns?
The details and functionality of model guns imitates the real counterparts very closely while still keeping things safe and fun. Best of our models are used for war museum display, living history and movie productions. Model guns are realistic reproductions that suit WWII buffs, collectors and re-enactment hobbyists a like!
