Default Picked up this Defender in the for sale forum

Winchester 1300 Defender, 18" barrel, 7 shot. Still has the factory grease on the inside. Looks like it's been barely fired. $300, not to bad. I'm not to crazy about PGO shotguns though. I think I'm gonna have to find a factory stock and stick on a limbsaver. I do love the action on these, smooth as silk.

I switch between the 12" Hogue synthetic stock and a Knoxx on one of my Defenders(used to be a pgo). A short lop on a defensive s/g feels better to me. You got a good deal on price as Defenders for sale on Gun Broker are going over $400.00 in fine/excellent condition. Wood furniture brings higher prices as well.

Nice score, and I agree on the pistol grip.

I would put a stock on that for sure.

If thats you in your avatar, I think the pistol grip is fine. Just in case if someone sneaks up on you when you're taking a dump you can whip it out fast and tell them to GIT! lol jk.

Excellent purchase! I agree with others full stocks are the way to go.
