The Winchester 101 was made in the Olin Kodensha factory in Japan from 1963 to 1987, then under the Classic Doubles name until 1990. The 101 was an excellent gun, well made, well finished, and lightweight in the field models. It was made in a number of grades in target and field versions. The Kodensha factory, incidentally, also made its own line of Nikko guns. As the story goes, Winchester only had a couple of employees at the factory to keep an eye on 101 production, and the Japanese would take all the best stock wood for their own Nikkos. Unfortunately the Kodensha factory was torn down and replaced with an auto factory years ago.
