Shotgun Chokes ExplainedWinchester 150 Assembly And Disassembly

The Winchester Model 25 hammer-less slide-action solid-frame shotgun was introduced in 1950. It was made in 12-ga. only, for the 23/4" shell, and was essentially a moderately priced version of the Winchester Model 12 takedown shotgun. The Model 25 was offered in either 26" or 28" barrel lengths with an option of full or modified choke in the 28" length, or improved cylinder boring in the 26" length. Magazine capacity is 4 shells and a wood plug was furnished to reduce the capacity to 2 shells. Weight of the gun with 28" barrel is approximately 8 lbs. and overall length is 41 Va".

The Model 25 shotgun was discontinued in 1957.

ITo properly disassemble Model 25 it is necessary to fabricate 2 special tools. Make Tool A from 6" or 8" bar of Va" x -lío" cold-rolled steel stock. Drill and shape end as shov,n. Holes should be slightly chamfered and all edges deburred.

Make Tool B from an 8" length of tempered steel dimensioned as shown. An old power hacksaw blade is excellent. Grind or file double end to form screwdrivers

4 Remove guard screw (36) and swing guard (35) down out of receiver (inside left wall of receiver shown). Lift out cartridge cutoff (30). With small screwdriver, pry out ejector (31—arrow) at rear of breechbolt (14) in receiver. Slide breechbolt fully rearward and lift out.

Remove buttplate screws (26), butt-plate (25), buttstock bolt (28). and washer (29). Pull off buttstock (60). In reassembly, replace buttstock after replacing guard

2 Remove magazine band screw (3) and slide magazine band (4) forward on barrel (1). Remove magazine lock screw (5) and magazine lock (6) in face of receiver (7). Apply Tool A to lug in front of magazine plug (10) aligning Va" hole in tool with hole in plug. Insert short piece of Va" drill rod (A) and turn out magazine (8) approximately 150°.

Tool is necessary to 'break' tight screw fit of magazine to receiver. Unscrew magazine, with action slide handle (61) attached, from receiver by hand. Pull entire assembly straight forward and free of gun

3 Unscrew magazine plug screws (11), holding magazine plug in place with thumb. Slowly remove magazine plug and grasp magazine spring (12) to prevent its escape. Remove spring and follower (13).

Drift out left extractor pin (16, arrow) from bottom of breechbolt and lift away left extractor (17) and spring (18). Drift out firing pin stop pin (15) and remove firing pin striker (23). firing pin (24), and firing pin spring (22). Reassemble bolt in reverse
