Cut it down and count the rings. No, wait! That's for a tree. Try this: Start with all the information that is printed on the gun. There should be a manufacturer's name or trade name on it. It may also have a model number, serial number, or proof marks. Take all this information to the library and find Flayderman's Guide to Antique American Arms, Gun Trader's Guide, and The Blue Book of Gun Values. Look through these books and all the others on the nearby shelves until you find your gun. You may be able to find an exact year of manufacture if it is by one of the major makers, but most likely you will have to settle for an approximate date based on the dates the manufacturer was in business or made a certain model.

In order to answer your question correctly,I would need to know the model of Winchester shotgun that you are asking about and the serial number of the shotgun in question.
