The pistol grip stock made the Winchester easy to maneuver, a big plus in residential hallways or rooms. But muzzle blast was fierce.
The Winchester grip had finger grooves that improved control. The arrow shows the location of the magazine release.
The Winchester carrier supported the shell in the action. We think this gun could be stored (in a childless home) loaded like this with the muzzle down, making the gun easy to get into action.
