Have Winchester re-introduced the Model 101 shotgun?

Being a fan of the old 101, I only wish it was! I checked this with Winchester’s USA website, and there is certainly a break-action shotgun they are calling the 101, but the old 101 it isn’t.

Instead of the old Browning-style action, it has a low-profile action hinged on stub pins.

It looks like the Select Energy models we can buy here in the UK, but with different (and in my view rather nicer) woodwork.

Sorry to disappoint! The old 101 was discontinued in the early 1980s.
