VERY RARE, RARE, ONE OF 13,500, 1909 Winchester Repeating Arms Company Model 1901 Law Enforcement Obsolete Calibre Black Powder 10 Gauge Under Lever Action Shotgun. Sn 15409 - 15409
The Model 1887 lever action shotgun was one of the first truly successful repeating shotgun. Its lever-action design was chosen at the behest of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company, best known at the time as manufacturers of lever-action firearms such as the Winchester model 1873. Designer John Browning suggested that a pump-action would be much more appropriate for a repeating shotgun, but Winchester management's position was that, at the time, the company was known as a "lever-action firearm company", and felt that their new shotgun must also be a lever-action for reasons of brand recognition. A few years after introduction of the Model 1887 Winchester improved the hinged lever of the 1887 and introduced the Model 1901 lever action shotgun. The shotguns were used widely by U.S. law enforcement agencies & only 13,500 Model 1901’s were made. This Model 1901 in the obsolete black powder 10 gauge calibre is furnished with a 32” barrel (49 ½” overall). It has undamaged metal work with even patina and original wood furniture with chequered steel butt plate. Its under lever action is crisp and it fires perfectly as it should. The left side plate has the Winchester monogram and the action tang is crisply stamped with the Winchester name Patent Registration. The barrel is crisply marked with Winchester name (illustrated). The weapon is serial number 74126 which dates it to 1909. The price for this rugged under lever shotgun includes UK Delivery.

The Malayan Emergency was a guerrilla war fought in pre- and post-independence Federation of Malaya, from 1948 until 1960. The belligerents were the Commonwealth armed forces against the Malayan National Liberation Army (MNLA), the military arm of the Malayan Communist Party . Support for the MNLA was mainly based on around 500,000 of the 3.12 million ethnic Chinese then living in Malaya. Despite the drawdown in violence in 1960, communist leader Chin Peng renewed the insurgency against the Malaysian Government in 1967; this second phase of the insurgency lasted until 1989. He fled to exile in Thailand, where he lived until his death on 16 September 2013. The Cheshire Regiment was deployed to Malaya in 1957.
