The Winchester 1300 shotgun is also known as the ‘Speed pump’ shotgun, because of their very fast-cycling pump action, which makes these guns popular among both hunters and sport shooters. These shotguns also work well for home defense and security applications, especially as relatively short-barreled models with long magazines are also available.

The Winchester 1300 shotgun utilizes slide (pump) action, operated by the sliding forend. The forend is connected to the bolt group with dual action bars. The receiver is produced from lightweight aluminum alloy, and the bolt locks into the barrel extension using a rotary bolt head with four radial locking lugs. Ammunition feed is from tubular under barrel magazines, available in a variety of lengths and capacities. Barrels are quick-detachable; in ‘Defender’ configurations barrels have a fixed cylinder choke, in hunting configurations the barrels are usually fitted with replaceable chokes and a sighting rib. Standard furniture comes in wood or plastic varieties, finish and sights may vary from version to version.
