M1897 IRL

A M1897 in reality

The Winchester Model 1897, more commonly referred to as the Trench Gun or simply the M1897 is a pump-action Shotgun designed by John Moses Browning. It is an improvement to the Winchester Model 1893. The weapon was popular among American soldiers during World War I, and at one point was even protested by Germans over its usage.

"This American trench gun proved to be so effective during war that the German Empire protested its use. Can be fired without releasing the trigger."

M97 Trench Gun HunterEdit

The standard variant of the Trench Gun, equipped with a bayonet.

The Trench Gun can be 'slam-fired'; that is, the trigger is held down and the pump is worked. In this method, the Trench Gun can fire almost as quickly as a semi-automatic shotgun. However, firing in this mode causes accuracy to quickly deteriorate to unmanageable levels.
