I got my Winchester 1897 in the mail today. It's a "C" solid frame model. Does anyone know a good resource to get info on how to do any sort of disassembly? I'm interested to to get the magazine off, so I can get a look at the markings on the bottom of the barrel. I haven't taken any pictures of it myself yet (can't find my camera) but here's one from the original seller:

thats a nice old gun. to remove the magazine tube you need to unscrew the barrel band screw then remove that. also remove the screw on th right side of the receiver thats near the mag tube. then just unthread the mag tube from the receiver and it will just slide off. hope this helps.

Rodman579, thank you! That is exactly what I needed. I sort of figured that was the case, but didn't want to try anything until I made sure there wasn't something more to it. Many thanks.
