An early pump-action, single-barreled shotgun from the late 1890s, this weapon is used by host characters in the Westworld park, most prominently Armistice.


Designed by the famous firearms engineer John Browning, this shotgun was an early example of a commercially successful firearm using pump-action reloading. Though pump-action is commonplace and preferred in modern shotguns, and had been invented in the mid 19th century, it was not a common reloading mechanism in new shotgun designs until the late 19th century. The M1897 initially began as an improved version of the Model 1893.
