    Hey guys, I just bought a new shotgun today, sorry no pictures yet. But its a winchester defender, that only holds 4 shells in the tube. There is no plug in the tube, but I was told the defender models held 5 shots, with the longer models holding 7 or 8.

    The markings on the gun barrel say, Winchester Defender 12gauge 2 3/4, 3inch. "Roughly" There's no markings saying if its a 1200 or 1300, its just labled as a Winchester Defender 12 gauge.

    Any idea exactly what I have here?? Besides it being a Winchester Defender 12 gauge of course! :whistling:

    The "5 shots" you were told includes one in the chamber.

    Ok, thats what I originally thought. Is there any way to tell the difference between a 1200 and a 1300 without it literally saying it?

    mine doesnt have any other designations to it, and its only holding 4 rounds of 2 3/4. The round capacity isnt a issue for me, It just not being able to figure out what it is. All the defenders i've seen held at least 5 in the tube, and this definitely says "Winchester Defender" on the barrel.

    Sounds like somebody put a Defender barrel on a bird gun.

    when i changed out the rounds for birdshot it would hold all five, after firing it for awhile its now able to fit all 5 buckshot into the tube. not sure what was up but now it seems to have fixed itself.
