I got a winchester mod. 100 auto in 308 fellow needed cash to pay a fine I had never heard of the gun but I liked the looks of the gun and was looking for a 308. Well It now is one of my favorite guns shoots up a storm took it to sight in and after 6 shots ,all where they should be I figured it was ok never touched the scope(Tasco)3-9 I find Tasco a good scope for the money so no coments. But my question is has anyone else had experance with this mod. Is it a good one? Or did I just get lucky?

I just bought a m-100 for $400 @ 99% with the magazines and sling. I couldn't believe this guy was selling his dad's gun. It also has a new but old Weaver K2.5 and Weaver mounts that let you move the the scope to the side to use iron sights. e said his dad shot a box of ammo through it and it looks like it. It's in 308 and was made in 1961. What a find for me. I can't wait to shoot it. If anyone can give me info on m-100s let me know. Thanks :D

win Md 100

There are alot of those Md 100's out there. The people that have them won't part with them. If you start having problems with it like jamming it would need a good cleaning.

In the late 70s Winchester had a couple of massive recalls on the Model 100, faulty firing pin assmy and ejection problems. They were simple fixes but spelled the doom for the Semi auto sales wise.
They are nice rifles for woodland/heavy cover hunting. My gunshop has had a slug of them sitting for sale for $200-$300 for quite a while. Most of the hunters around here carried them in the 60s and early 70s.
