Announcement of the new Winchester Model 42 hammerless slide action repeating shotgun was an innovation. It was the first shotgun with this type of action ever developed especially for the 410 gauge shell. Factory records show the first delivery of Model 42 shotguns to warehouse stock was made in May 1933.
Although the Model 42 in design and appearance closely resembles the Winchester Model 12, it was not a copy of this model but was in all respects a small, lightweight shotgun developed especially for the 410 gauge. The M/42 was discontinued in 1963; about 159,353 were made (Watrous: 1966).
The receiver and magazine of this Model 42 have been cut away with numerous windows on both sides to demonstrate the internal mechanisms.
