    True on the .35 Remington, and yes, I did overlook the Stevens 425. The .35 was pretty popular because it has (or once had) a reputation as a "brush buster" and so was very popular for eastern deer hunting.

    I remember a Winchester shotgun from many years back that was long-recoil operated. Don't remember the model number offf hand, but remember that it had a knurled pattern on the barrel near the muzzle.

    I wrote a bit on the Winchester 1911 in #24. Apparently 1911 was a big year for gun inventors.

    I was talking to my gunsmith this morning and mentioned the Winchester M1911, and he pointed out two in his racks.

    The 1911 Winchester was followed by the Model 40, made after the Browning patent including a cocking handle expired. But it was kind of a dud. prone to breaking stuff.
    Winchester replaced all they could get back in with Model 12 pumps.
